Now that Christmas is over and has passed, we're settling into winter's dreary belly. Uhg. Neither the Bears nor the Packers made it to the playoffs, so I have no comfort. January and February will be grey skies, skeletal trees, and slip-n-slide roads.
Such oppressive weather can be fought with cheery clothes. If you saw someone bundled against the cold with this blooming bag swinging her arm, wouldn't you smile? The black leather and canvas bag wouldn't look out of place this chilly season, but the embroidered orange and lilac blossoms certainly give Old Man Winter a swift kick. The "Night Blooming" shoulder bag is available at Anthropologie for $98.
