    Sure, our minds may be exploring the possibility of sporting springtime wares — wishfully thinking that soon enough we can slip into sundresses and tanks. But, since we all know that’s somewhat of an erroneous state of mind, we’ll have to opt for the next best thing. Adding a bright bag to our arsenal to cure those weather woes is one avenue we’re willing to explore. And it looks like Bay Area designer Sarah Tejada has the antidote.

    The talented handbag-making expert has whipped up a bevy of vivid leather purses that we’re aching for.

Ready to see her handful of new styles? Have a looksee and we dare you not to jump for joy.

(or ex-S.O.). But, in there read
