If you are a frequenter of my blog, you have probably noticed I’m a giant fan of any pop of bright color, even during the fall and winter seasons. It can definitely bring an otherwise neutral outfit to life. You’ll always see me with bright jewelry, scarfs and other accessories! So I had to share with you my new favorite tote from Leah Learner. I’m obsessed with this color! What do you think?


Leah Lerner has an assortment of bright bags like the one featured in these photos as well as an assortment of neutral tones. Her collection features items as small as coin purses to larger hobo bags. Plus, her site offers free worldwide shipping! One of the first things I noticed when I received my bag was the amazing quality. All of her bags are made with Italian leather and all of her materials are hand selected.

One of my favorite things to do while in Barcelona was walk the little streets in the Gothic Quarter and explore the craft and textile shops. Everything was so unique and I couldn’t believe the selection the small shops had. It made me wish that I had the expertise to design or sew! So, I thought it was so cool that it was the love for exploring these types of shops (that sell fabric, leather, zippers, hardware and other supplies) in Tel Aviv that helped inspire Leah Lerner to start her own collection.

Leah Lerner has previously designed for the likes of Kate Spade and American Eagle before starting her own brand, and I couldn’t be more impressed.  Hope you enjoy the following picks and make sure to check out her website, Esty shop, and social media sites as well. (See below):
