Thanks to a recent spell of warm weather, I’m feeling the peppy promise of spring – and with that promise, the desire for a new bag to carry during higher temperatures to come. Enter Victoria Beckham’s Simple shopper. The name sends the right message, yet there’s something about a “simple” tote that symbolizes so much more. This is the kind of bag that makes one long for sunset picnics on the beach and idyll afternoons in the grass.
Natural-colored canvas can feel less than luxurious, especially on a classic east-west tote style, but in Victoria’s impeccably manicured hands, it’s crisp, clean, chic, and yes, luxe. Bright white trim feels nice and fresh (and begs to be accessorized with a brightly printed, knotted scarf or whimsical keychain), but how can you resist a graphic blast of bubblegum pink?! I know I can’t. This is just what I need to enjoy the laziest days of the year. Victoria Beckham bag available for preorder in white or pink at Victoria Beckham for $1,195 (expect delivery by March 25th).
Wear with: A pair of bleach-washed bellbottoms with sailor-inspired buttons, à la these Guccis, are just nautical enough to bring to the beach and just loose-fitting enough to ensure easy, all-day comfort. On NET-A-PORTER for $850.
