I love this time of year…the “time to change out your pocketbook” time!!

Time to switch from the dark colors of winter to the light colors of summer!Β  It’s hard to see in the picture but the “summer” pocketbook is a beautiful sky blue color…oh it’s sooo pretty!Β  I bought it during the winter and have been waiting and waiting and waiting for just the right time to do the ole switcheroo….now’s that time!Β  Temps have reached 90 degrees here the past few days…and although it’s not officially summer, it’s time!

I don’t know why it’s so thrilling to move your stuff out of one bag and into another, but it is!Β  It’s the same stuff, but it now has a new home, so somehow it’s different.Β  You may even put the items in the exact same place in the summer bag but it is still so refreshing!

It’s a ritual that only women can appreciate and understand!Β  As Memorial Day is the USA’s unofficial start to summer, to me the “Changing of the Bags” is another indication that summer is here!Β  πŸ˜‰

So if you’ll excuse me now, I must go empty my winter bag into my summer bag….oh how exciting!!Β  xo

  1. Even though I wear suits to work every day, I love denim, burlap and handpainted totes in summer. I am allergic to zippers so those open ones where all your business is on display – just the ticket. Best of luck with the change.

    • Thanks for asking, Deb. I haven’t done any as yet but I’m working on something. I love the organisation idea. I admire anyone who can keep their handbags straight. I should be nicknamed “Chucky” because I like to chuck things in my totes as an afterthought. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

    • Lol…ok Chucky! Yes I sometimes think being organized is a curse…everything I see I have to straighten, rearrange, sort or put in it’s “proper” place!!!
      I think you would make fabulous bags and you intrigue me that you are working on something!! I look forward to finding out what that something will be!! πŸ™‚ xo

  3. We have May long weekend, just the weekend before you’ve Memorial Day. And it pretty much marks the beginning of our summer season. People go camping etc, even though for some reason May long is often cold and rainy and even snowy. But it’s been nice temperatures again and I did indeed, switch from my black winter purse, to a bright blue one for summer. Enjoy your long weekend πŸ™‚

  5. When we lived in Indiana, Memorial Day and the Indianapolis 500 started the summer off with a bang, as it were. A big send off to summer. It’s something I miss.
