We're ecstatic that we're finally able to wear all of our pretty Spring things this month! That being said, our April shopping list includes an array of refreshing floral prints, chic totes, and statement accessories to finish off our warm-weather ensembles. We're also updating our shoe arsenal with a few new essentials — like striped espadrilles and leg-lengthening sandals — and plan on ditching our heavy jackets for lighter, brighter fare. Click through to shop all of our editors' April must haves now.
It's not often that we get an It bag that rings in under $200. But with its classic, bookish silhouette, Cambridge Satchel quickly became the bag to have after gaining popularity with the street-style crowd and cool girls like Alexa Chung. Since the label launched in 2007, it has continued to deliver the same iconic style finished in a wash of rainbow hues. For Spring '13, those colors are a range of pretty pastels, or what founder Julie Deane calls a "Chelsea Flower Show makeover." The four fresh hues are named after flowers you'd find strolling the British gardens in Spring and Summer — namely Crocus, Honeysuckle, Lavender, and Sweet Pea — giving each bag not just a covetable Spring-perfect pop, but also a bit of quintessentially British heritage. And, if you're looking for a shade maybe a tad more brilliant, the company has just released two very on-trend emerald and sapphire bags for Spring. Click through to see every new color, and then click over to The Cambridge Satchel Company to shop your favorite style (and take advantage of free worldwide shipping in March!).
