O the month of May, the merry month of May,

    So frolic, so gay, and so green, so green, so green!

And then did I unto my true love say:

    “Sweet Peg, thou shalt be my summer’s queen!”

– an excerpt of the poem by Thomas Dekker 

ARIES (March 21st - April 19th)

Although you are incredibly focused this month, family responsibilities may try to come in the way of your positive intentions and plans. The key this month is not to run away from your commitments, and to ooze patience with family. 
Your bag of choice this month is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall 45, a coated canvas weekend bag that will hold all of your belongings for a long weekend with the family.
It’s your birthday! This whole month is a special one for you, which means you should treat yourself to something special too!
You might want to consider some form of travel in May, even if it’s just a staycation with friends or loved ones.
Because it’s your birthday, buy that bag you’ve always had your eye on. The Kelly 20cm in Blue Brume with gold hardware is the perfect piece to wear this month and throughout the summer. Carry it by its top handle for an elegant look, or wear cross body with the long strap it comes with for a more casual feel. 

TAURUS (April 20th - May 20th)

GEMINI (May 21st - June 20th)

Money is on your mind this month, dear Gemini. How about you try something slightly different in May, and allow your intuition to guide you towards the answers you need to be able to move forward. 
You might not want to spend a fortune at the moment, but are still looking to do something nice for yourself. A real no-brainer is a vintage Louis Vuitton padlock for only £60. The entire Luxury Promise team own, love and obsess over this must-have accessory. 
The last few months have felt tremendously heavy for you, and you have been feeling confined, trapped and sometimes even blocked from moving forward. Now is the time to reflect on the earlier part of this year, and on learnings you have acomplished, there are quite a few! 
Remember to stay bold and beautiful this month; you got this, dear Cancer!
A gorgeous floral Dior Denim Saddlebag will give you the additional boost of confidence you may be looking for. Bring out the inner Carrie Bradshaw in you, and wear with a floral sun dress, or jeans and a cute top. 

CANCER (June 21st - July 22nd)

LEO (July 23rd - August 22nd)

A mantra for you this month is: To feel love you also must love in return. 
This is the month you will be reconnecting with old friends, and perhaps even drawing in some new connections. Both old and new come into your life as teachers- let them guide you! 
With a studious sense this month, a backpack could be what you are looking for. The Goyard Alpine backpack in black is a classic investment piece, elegant and trendy. 
You are on a quest to find your perspective point this month, and will be on this same path until June. Do this by speaking to specialists in their fields, and take things nice and easy. 
This is a time to observe and discuss, and not make any rash decisions. 
A bag you simply can not go wrong with, has to be the classic Chanel flap bag in black lambskin leather with gold hardware. This is a forever piece that you will never regret owning.

VIRGO (August 23rd - September 22nd)
