My favorite teenage Coach bag
Had a few minutes to spare this evening, and spent it checking out the new Poppy collection by Coach. Usually, when I find myself too old for something, it makes me sad. But I love the youthfulness and spirit of the Poppy line; in fact, it makes me happy to think of a young woman getting one of these bags for her birthday the way I received my (cherished and treasured) black half-moon-shaped-mini-belt-bag for mine. I read somewhere that the CEO describes Poppy as “eclectic and spontaneous,” which is definitely how I’d want to describe myself at that age.

How fantastic are these colors? Incidentally, I’ve been noticing these two colors (teal/turquoise and fuschia/purple) in lots of textiles (and bedding ensembles) lately. Maybe it’s a marketing thing, or maybe it’s just SUMMER! Yay!
Here are two of my new finds – one crib set and one duvet. They share the same fresh colors and cool prints.
Plover Organic, teal squares crib set, Pillow Mint, reduced from $335 to $234.50
Not only is the crib bedding made from 100% organic cotton, the designs are block-printed by hand. And best of all, it’s on sale at the Pillow Mint shop.
Erika fuschia duvet cover, Pine Cone Hill, $124 for twin
A soft and sophisticated design for a big girl room, the leaf motif is eye-catching but not too busy. As with the handbag at top, it’d look great accompanied by silvers, pinks, and lavenders.
What colors remind you of summer? Let me know.
