I agree. I own Dinky 24 in Camel floral applique and the Saddle 23 old brass/black color is on its way and I'm older than you both. These bags can be worn dressed up or with casual outfits.I honestly feel flowers and women go together very well at any age! I am just a few years below you and I just got two tea rose applique items and I never even thought of it being too young. Even considered getting one for my mom if I can find more money stashed somewhere LOL! Yours is even more special as it was picked by DH, what a lovely gesture and I must say he has amazing taste! Hope you enjoy carrying it!
