I hope you had a great weekend! Ryan and I got a ton of stuff done around the house and enjoyed the beautiful weather we had in Chicago yesterday! Now that spring feels like it’s here to stay, we’ve been getting our yard ready and I’ve started putting my winter clothes away to make room for my spring/summer wardrobe. One of the first things I change when it’s time transition my wardrobe for a new season is the handbag I use on a daily basis! During the winter months I usually carry a brown or black tote and I go with something lighter colored during the spring & summer months. I’m so excited to finally start using my Barrington Gifts St. Anne Tote Bag! While right now I may only be going to the grocery store, it feels really good to be able to switch things up and have some new-ness in my life.

Barrington Gifts has so many different kinds of bags, travel accessories, purses and pouches and most of their products are customizable so the options are almost endless! They have the cutest seasonal prints (especially for the summer months). I went with this geometric pattern in grey and white because the coloring goes well with so many spring colors!  I wear a lot of blue so I chose to go with a blue monogram and love how it turned out. They recently came out with a collection with Caitlin Wilson (one of my favorite interior designers) and the prints are SO cute!

Also, just as a reminder, Mother’s day is around the corner and Barrington Gifts has a ton of cute options for moms. This is a great opportunity to support a small business during these tough times. Today is the last day to place your order with Barrington Gifts for guaranteed delivery by Mother’s Day – I’ve included a few pieces that would make great gifts below! They also have tons of cute things for graduation gifts too!!

This brass tube vase makes the perfect centerpiece for a long dining table or console! 💐 I filled it with yellow, pink and white faux spring florals but you can use real flowers! How pretty would some tulips look?! There are so many ways you can fill this piece. A few tips to get this look:
Pick three colors to work with
Pick two statement flowers 
Pick three “filler” florals or greenery
Cut your faux floral stems to get a variety of lengths. 
I like using faux florals because you can easily manipulate the direction of the stems to get a more wildflower look. Also, they’re easier to keep alive 😉
