Even if you don’t spend as much time online shopping as I do (and for the sake of your work performance and/or the well-being of your children, I hope you don’t), you’ve probably gotten a distinct sense of the “blahs” over the past two weeks. After the initial frenetic rush of sale season passed, there’s been little to amuse ourselves with except for a few stray pre-fall arrivals and the occasional attempt to squint at the tiny, half-obscured accessories in Resort 2014 lookbooks. (Seriously, can’t we get some full-size detail shots?) As a result, these Sophie Hulme Floral Envelope Bags feel like a breath of fresh air.
Actually, I bet these cute little floral bags might feel fresh and fun any time of year. As much as I love printed bags, I’m usually disappointed by the materials – usually canvas or some other sort of textile – that they’re made out of. Both of these Hulme bags are made entirely of leather, though, which makes me especially excited. They’re also both usable as clutches or crossbodies, and they both retail for less than $1,000. If you are very particular about your florals, Hulme even did you the solid of using two different, yet similar, prints, so you can choose if you want more yellow or more berry tones. I think I’m in love. (I’ll take the extra berry tones, please.
