Reese's Sunny Yellow Bag Will Make You Smile

by Jamie Cuccinelli

Hello sunshine! There's no better way to welcome spring than with cheerful, sunny yellow accessories. Just ask Reese Witherspoon and her yellow handbag that she's been spotted toting all around town. Her purse of choice is so bright that I get happier just looking at it.

I know I'm not the only one who begins to resemble Gollum from Lord of the Rings by the time February hits. I go around, hunched over in drab colored sweats, bracing myself against the cold and counting down the days until sun's rays break through the winter clouds and I can officially start looking like a human being in bright clothes (and a positive attitude to match).

I swear, there is nothing better than casting off the grey, brown, and navy sweaters that you've been nesting in for months, and finally getting the chance to rock the sunny accessories that are just as cheerful and confident as the gal wearing 'em. Reese Witherspoon's dazzling neon yellow bag is by designer Reed Krakoff and comes with a pretty heavy $2,700 price tag. But don't let sticker shock rain on your parade — snag any of these other affordable, lemony-hued purses and you'll be walking on sunshine (with money in your pocket to boot).
