For a long time I had an issue with mixed metals. I still don’t love it when it’s unintentional, but silver and gold got married creating the ever popular “gilver” and now I’m a believer. I also never paired warm colors with cooler ones, but rosy pink and grey have become one of my absolute favorite combinations. As I mentioned a few posts earlier, pink is my new nude. It also happens to be EVERYWHERE this season. I mean, from home decor to socks, you can’t escape it and I’m thrilled.

The clutch is one of the most versatile pieces that you can have in your wardrobe. Obviously, they are great for weddings and formal occasions, but the use of them for date nights and during the day is wonderful! I schlep around a giant diaper bag most of the time, so lately I’ve been keeping my items in a clutch or small cross body.

I’m loving that small handbags and cross body’s are so on trend right now; they eliminate back pain (the first thing my doctor told me to drop when I was pregnant was my ten pound purse) and really, we only need our identification, some form of payment, a great lip color and phone. Those things easily fit in a tiny bag.

Take Easter and all of the pastel colors as a moment to embrace it and if you love it, keep on using it! Opt for a small bag in a go with everything metallic or pastel! You won’t regret it, I promise.
