Is anyone else so bored with their winter wardrobe? I bet you are. Spring fashion is still a few weeks away from hitting the stores, but as I reported last week, single sole shoes are in, blinding neon has dug its grave, yellow is king, and I don’t know about you, but my exhausted wardrobe is well, exhausted.

Resort wear, available now, has some stellar pieces in many of the collections, and just like Pre-Fall, its sometimes even that much better than the Spring collections. Today on “if the world wide web was my closet,” let’s salute to the end of winter blahs with a migration to pastel bags to brighten up the cold weather staples in your closet. Sure we can invest in beachy pullovers and single sole shoes now, but the oh so fickle weather might not cooperate with what we want to wear now. It might be fifty degrees today, but tomorrow and the rest of the week looks to be bitterly arctic. Give thanks to the schizophrenic weather person who writes that script.

Because twenty degrees doesn’t have to mean black, grey, and navy, pair these hot new bags shown below with denim and an oversized chunky sweater to kick-start your wardrobe and wear now. If white pumps can be worn year-round, anything can. FYI, all the links below lead you to websites to purchase the looks. You can also shop the post in the new format by clicking the small pics on the bottom! Isn’t that new format cool?
