new giant monogram // favorite barrington color combinations

I’ve been talking about Barrington bags almost as long as I’ve been blogging. The Dallas-based leather goods company was one of the first to ever collaborate with me, and I’ve been in love with their customizable products ever since! (Check out this post for a good throwback.)

I always love when the brand releases a new pattern or color. Their custom bag builder tool has provided me endless hours of entertainment, combining different color and monogram options. Too much fun! So when they announced their new giant monogram option earlier this week, I did a little happy dance.

And then spent far too long playing around with the new addition. Oops.

No surprise here, I’m loving this fun new monogram option. It’s bold and fresh, and updates the classic monogram in a really fun way.

I thought it would be fun to share a few of the favorite color combinations I came up with while using the custom bag builder tool! It can be overwhelming to design your first (or fifth) Barrington because of all the beautiful options, so I hope these provide a bit of inspiration.

Check out my favorites below. You’ll find the exact pattern and color information below each set!

Now I’m dying to know… which combination is your favorite? To design your own, head here!

Before signing off, I had to mention what fabulous gifts these pieces make. I normally loath a generic gift card, but for the graduate/new mama/best friend birthday in your life, a Barrington gift card would be such a cute gift idea! That way, the recipient gets to design exactly what they enjoy. (And dhe design process is part of the fun!)

Think of it as Build-a-Bear for adults! :)

    Kate I blame you for my Barrington obsession! This post isn’t helping lol. It’s not a matter of when I buy my next item but what I want it to be. The St. Anne tote is my favorite tote and I’ve recommended it to soooo many people!
