Happy summer solstice! Even if it’s already been warm for months where you are, today is the official start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and personally I’m hoping that means New York actually sees fit to stay, you know, warm for a while. (We have not had an especially beautiful spring, unfortunately.) That being said, the nice weather does have me in a good mood, and like usual, that means my eye has started to wander toward shopping.

I know that tendency exists in a lot of PB readers, too, so I went ahead and put my wardrobe-expanding urges to good use by cataloging the best light, bright (but still very usable) summer bags I found. Because impulse purchases are a lot easier at three figures than four figures, I also kept all the prices under control. Check out the best below.
