Dear Monday, can you just not?

The beginning of the week can be such a drag: the wild and crazy weekend has come and gone within a blink of the eye–in fact, if we didn’t have photographic evidence of all the shenanigans that ensued over the past two days saved in our camera roll, you’d have a hard time convincing us it was ever actually here–and it’s back to the mundane reality that we call the work week until our calendars say it’s Friday and our clocks read 5:30 p.m. again.

We don’t need a doctor to tell us how badly we’ve got the Monday blues, either. All the symptoms are present: we hit the snooze button about a dozen times, the morning commute was incredibly insufferable (but when is it ever really tolerable?), and it seems like there’s no coffee strong enough that’ll help us keep our eyelids peeled open for the next few hours.

There’s no real cure for a case of the Mondays, but there is one remedy that can help lift your spirits (it does the trick for us, anyway): online shopping. Spring is finally here, so it’s time for a wardrobe revamp, and with blue being one of Pantone’s top colors of the season, we’re in the market for a trendy bag that’s worth waking up to every day of the week.

From big backpacks to cool clutches, we’ve rounded up a dozen bags that’ll really leave you feeling blue today, but in the best way possible. Shop them below.
