Pineapple Purse!

If you like piña coladas… Well, you’re just going to love this purse. Tropical drinks are my absolute favorite — but as a young woman in the male dominated and always-too-cool punk scene, I stuck to lukewarm PBR for years. In true tough girl style, I’d occasionally sip Sailor Jerry rum from the flask in my handbag, and if I was feeling loose enough I’d mix that with a gas station glass-bottle coffee drink. (Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it.)

After years of so-so drinks, my now husband who, funny enough, has never had a drop himself made a good point. “You’re not trying to impress anyone. You don’t have to be tough. Get the one with the umbrella.” And your girl never looked back.

With my history of over-the-top cocktails and undying love of purses, I knew this Mary Frances pineapple purse from my friends at Soft Surroundings had to join my collection. To let the bag do the talking, I paired it with some simple woven earrings and matching leather sandals. These boho beauties let the sparkly purse shine and will match my normal spring and summer wardrobe wonderfully.

Currently wearing… Fun in the Sun Pineapple Bag by Mary Frances c/o Soft Surroundings [HERE] | Rattan Earrings c/o Soft Surroundings [HERE] | Tracy Slide Sandals c/o Soft Surroundings [HERE] | Madewell wrap tee [HERE, runs big!] | Madewell denim shorts [HERE] | Oversized round sunglasses [SIMILAR] | Berkshire Ultra Sheer Hose Without Toes [HERE, runs small!]

Although to be honest, I might revise my warm wardrobe so everything matches this bag. It is extra and so am I.

P.S. Did you notice nylons in my ‘currently wearing’ section? Berkshire sent over a pair of Ultra Sheer Hose Without Toes and I couldn’t wait to try them out. This barely-there panty hose offers intense support, mild coverage, and no shine while keeping your toes out and about for open-toed shoes. Just be certain to size up!

Would you rock this fun purse?
