Summer 2019 flew by in the blink of an eye, but I’m certainly not complaining because autumn is fast approaching, and it's my favorite season of the year. I have been eagerly anticipating its arrival as DC is known for being brutally hot and humid during the summer. Autumn is always a nice reprieve when the seasons change. Along with all of the fun changes in fashion that come with fall (think: boots, scarves, and oversized sweaters), I love autumn because I get to indulge in my favorite drink: the pumpkin spice latte.
Ever since the PSL debuted at Starbucks in 2003, this drink has been a seasonal staple for me during fall months. I especially love to wear bags that compliment my PSL once the temperatures dip and the leaves start to change colors. Matching a handbag to a caffeinated beverage may seem odd to some, but here at PurseBlog, we know that nothing is off-limits if it shows off how cute our handbags are. I love the LV Starbucks thread on the PurseForum and I always really enjoy looking at photos of handbags and accessories paired with Starbucks drinks. There is something so visually satisfying about your drink not only serving up your daily caffeine dosage, but also acting as an accessory to your ensemble.
As an American who is stereotypically obsessed with all things pumpkin-flavored (much to my Irish husband’s utter confusion), I am no stranger to the pumpkin spice latte. Luckily for me and all of the PSL fans out there, Starbucks released the famed fall drink earlier than ever before. This year as of yesterday, August 27th, you can order your favorite seasonal beverages, which admittedly, it may feel a little strange to order pumpkin-flavored items before Labor Day arrives, but who am I to say no? Starbucks has even decided to shake things up a bit by adding a pumpkin cold brew into the mix. As an iced coffee drinker, I am super excited about this new addition to the autumnal drink line up and will be indulging ASAP.
I’ve found some really cute bags for fall that I think will pair perfectly with my pumpkin spice lattes. Whether you are into matching your bag to your drink or not, I think you will covet these beauties.
