Have you seen the new Coach spring 2017 handbag collection? It is to-die-for! Coach has nailed it with their spring 2017 handbags. Every trend, or classic need, has been met in the collection. Pink trend? Check. Classic tote for spring or summer? Check. Red handbag trend? Check. Embellished bag trend? Check. Box bag trend? Check. Return of the hobo? Check, check, and oh yeah, check.

Embellished bags are the epitome of spring 2017 handbags. There is no trend greater than the embellished bag trend for spring. When I look at the Coach spring 2017 handbag collection, I see so many fabulous embellishments! There are heavily embellished bags such as this one. There are also subtle embellishments, such as on this bag. If you like bold, Coach has it, if you like understated, Coach has that too. How is a girl to choose?

My favorite bag from Coach’s spring 2017 handbag collection is this bag. It is perfect for wearing all season long. This bag will also fit into the upcoming fall 2017 trends. Love that!

For a trendy, of-the-season bag, I am eyeing this hot little number here. Isn’t it fabulous? I am in love! You can never go wrong with a Coach bag right? I have owned various bags by Coach since the early 1990s, and my love for the company has never waned.

Every Coach handbag I have owned has been such good quality. I love how they keep their prices moderate and reasonable; yet keep their quality high. A good value in handbags is hard to find these days! Coach is always a good value; plus they are so on top of the trends! Fashionable and practical = LOVE!

Have I mentioned the return of the hobo bag? Oh yes. It is slowly coming back into fashion. There were hobos and slouchy bags on the fall 2017 runways. This means investing in a hobo bag now, such as this fabulous one, is getting ahead of the curve. There is nothing like beating a trend, and being on the cutting edge of fashion.

While we saw box bags come into fashion last year, they are slowing coming to the top of the handbag trend scale. Box bags are being shown for both evening and daytime. They are a hot IT bag look right now. Coach has a beautiful one for spring right here. I love the embellishments on it. So pretty!

Mini bags and cross body bags are not going anywhere for the spring 2017 season. Coach has so many pretty ones in their spring collection! My favorite cross body bag from the Coach spring 2017 handbags collection is this one right here. Isn’t it fabulous!

I am in love with the Coach spring 2017 handbag collection. What do you think? Which bag or bags are your favorite?

Wearing: tassel earrings in ivory / YSL lipstick / spring 2017 dress c/o Karina (Made in the USA!!) / Shore Projects watch (blue sold out, also love this one) / Kendra Scott ring / Mansur Gavriel Tote / LondonTown Dolly Mix nail polish (9-free) c/o / Valentino Tango pumps

Karina’s spring 2017 collection is here! I am so excited. You may remember the last time I wore a Karina dress, online here. I love that dress, and will still be able to wear it this spring. BUT, isn’t it nice to have something from the brand new season!!

This classic, feminine, and perfect dress by Karina for spring is exactly what my closet needed. My former LBD (Little Black Dress) wore out, so I was hoping to find a new one for spring 2017. I was thrilled when Karina offered me a dress from their new spring collection. Although not a true LBD, this dress fits perfectly into the LBD mold. It will be my go-to for all my last minute occasions, as well as planned events! Love!

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our winter weather has just started to change. We normally start to have spring days in February. So, this past weekend, when there was a break in the rain, the 60-degree weather we had Sunday morning felt like spring! I was lucky enough to be able to wear this dress in the morning before heading home to watch the Super Bowl. I lucked out because that afternoon the temperature dropped, and the rain started! Whew!

It was fun to wear a spring outfit-at least for a couple of hours over the weekend. This dress is so comfortable, and it is great quality. I know I will get a lot of wear out of it this upcoming spring season.

Karina has a fabulous collection of spring dresses in addition to this one. Definitely check out the whole line! You will fall in love; just like I did! Plus, who doesn’t love something made in the USA!!! Love that!

Londontown Lakur Brighton Rock spring 2017 nail polish collection review

Pictured: nail polish c/o Londontown Peach Pop, Candy Floss, Dolly Mix, Fruit Tella / earrings

I am always on the hunt for fabulous nail polish. I love new, exciting colors, as well as new brands to try. When Londontown approached me to test out their 9-free nail polish, I was thrilled! 9-free?? I had no idea that even existed!

If you are wondering what “9-free” even means, it is an abbreviation for saying a nail polish formula is free from nine known harmful chemicals which are commonly found in nail polish. It has become common to hear about 5-free polish, but 9-free is new, unexplored territory! Love that!

In addition to being 9-free, Londontown Lakur is florium infused, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and vegan! How fabulous is that! To sweeten the pot, how fabulous are the four colors from Londontown “Brighton Rock,” the new spring/summer 2017 nail polish collection! Love!

Londontown Brighton Rock is the new spring/summer 2017 nail polish collection from Londontown. There are four, pretty shades in the collection; Peach Pop, which is a pale, peachy white hue, Dolly Mix, which is a pale lavender, Candy Floss, which is a sparkling pale pink, and Fruit Tella which is a bold and bright fuchsia.

This is Peach Pop. It is a really pretty and pale peach hue. When applied, it appears to be a few shades away from white. This is a fabulous color for both the spring and summer seasons. It acts like a pastel for spring, yet acts like an almost-white polish which is ideal against tan skin in the summer months. I used two coats of color with one base coat for my Peach Pop mani. It initially turned out a little bit streaky, and needed a few touch-ups on about half my nails.  I would recommend two normal coats of color, and one light third coat. Love!

Dolly Mix is a beautiful, pale lavender color which is ideal for the spring 2017 season. With so many shades of blue and pink in style for spring, lavender polish plays well with the current color palette and adds a nice compliment to spring’s shades of blue and pink. This is a beautiful hue. One base coat, and two coats of color created the perfect mani. Love it too!

For the feminine and romantic, Candy Floss is your go-to nail polish for spring/summer 2017. This is a sweet, sparkling pink which has a grown-up feel to it. It really is the perfect pink. I used one base coat, and two coats of color. Love!

Londontown Lakur Fruit Tella nail polish spring 2017

If you are feeling va-va-voom; or just want to brighten your day, Fruit Tella is the color for you! This is a fabulous color for the upcoming summer season. It is bright, bold, sassy, and downright fun! I would love to wear Fruit Tella on a tropical beach vacation, or any day I would want to feel like I am on a summer vacation. This was an easy polish to apply and it went on perfectly even. I used one base coat, and two coats of color. It is very shiny, which adds to it’s perfection. Love!

All in all, Londontown’s Brighton Rock collection for spring/summer 2017 offers great colors for the season, high shine, and the peace of mind knowing all the polishes are 9-free, florium infused, cruelty-free, gluten free, and vegan! Love!
