Spring and Summer 2016 Bag Trend Alert: 3D Floral Accents

My favorite seasons for fashion has got to be spring and summer. I love colorful and/or fun & funky things and those are generally best suited for spring and summer. 3D Floral accents on bags are so on trend this season; all the major designers have it incorporated into their collections. I seriously cannot wait to cop a bag with 3D floral accents. Below are some bags with 3D Floral Accents for any budget.

Splurge

Fendi – Peekaboo Mini Allover Flowers Satchel Bag

Valentino – Mini Lock Floral-Appliqué Leather Shoulder BagValentino - Mini Lock Floral-Appliqué Leather Shoulder Bag
How cute are the allover floral appliques on this bag?!? The daintiness from the floral appliqués is offset by the bag’s Rock stud details which are very Valentino.

Dolce & Gabbana – Dolce Box Crystal Flower Satchel BagD&G Dolce Box Crystal Flower Satchel BagDolce & Gabbana also got in on the 3D floral accent trend with their crystal flower satchel. I’ve also been seeing box satchels make a comeback so keep an eye out.

Affordable

ZAC Zac Posen – Eartha Soft Top Handle SatchelZac Posen Floral Eartha Top HandleI love the Eartha bags as they are very reminiscent of a lot of popular luxury bags and can be considered an affordable dupe for the Celine Trapeze, Fendi 3 Jours, and Salvatore Ferragamo Sofia Bag. Zac Posen did not disappoint when he introduced the laser-cut leather floral appliqués to his iconic bag. I seriously cannot get enough of this bag and the price-point makes this bag even more appealing. The Zac Posen Eartha bag comes in 2 sizes, the original which is a mid-sized handbag and a mini and lucky for us, both sizes are available with the floral appliqués! The mini with floral appliqués retails for just under $300 and the regular version retails for under $300.Read More Here

The weather in San Diego has been a bit colder than usual so I finally got a chance to wear the long sleeve knit sweater that I had purchased in SoHo over the holidays. I figured the open-stitching wasn’t going to shield me from the wind so I decided to layer up and toss on a large poncho scarf. Poncho scarves are seriously so awesome; they keep you warm, are super cozy, and go with practically everything especially if the print or design isn’t too busy. I leave a black poncho scarf at work as a backup for days when I forget to bring a jacket and it is unusually cold in the office. If you work in an office with multiple thermostats that people are constantly changing, you definitely should have this handy…office/work-life, you know what I’m talking about 😉 Poncho scarves are seriously so clutch!

I haven’t gotten a chance to explore Encinitas much since it’s a bit further north than my usual commute but the few times that I have been there have been very nice. The beach and coast are so picturesque, it seriously looks like something out of a postcard. The town is pretty mellow with a bunch of restaurants and neat shops lined up along Highway 101 which runs through town. Another added bonus is that it’s just a short drive to numerous Carlsbad attractions such as the Carlsbad Premium Outlets, the Flower Fields, Legoland, etc!
