My Everyday Bag

Before the holidays I began the search for a structured handbag that wasn’t too expensive, would keep its shape and would hold everything from file folders to my laptop; without looking like a piece of luggage. I stumbled upon this bag on Amazon and with the rave reviews, the price point, and the sleek, chic design (very similar to this high-end designer bag), I ordered it. A few months in and I can honestly say it is one of my favorite purses I have purchased. The quality surpasses some of my more expensive bags and the size is just large enough to tote my laptop but also small enough to head to happy hour after work without looking like I just stepped off the plane. Best part is comes 26 – YES – 26 colors!

I selected a neutral canvas with coordinating leather. Gave it one spray of scotch guard to protect the canvas and haven’t looked back! How fun is this orange for summer?!

Summer Table

Now that I own my own house entertaining has been top of mind; especially since the longer days of summer are officially here. Aerin Lauder is back at it again with Williams Sonoma adding even more amazing pieces to her everyday collection. The wine bucket is first on my list – just the perfect piece to chill your summer rose.

Friday Finds: Ditch the Flops

I hardly ever wear flip-flops, normally only to get a pedicure and sometimes not even then. I came across these sandals last night at Forever21 and ordered the other two colors today! The perfect {stylish} alternative to flip-flops, and a must have for spring {and summer}! 2015-03-20_09-03-19

Spring Trend: White Out

It was almost 90 degrees here in New Orleans today, and when we wake up tomorrow, they are saying it’s going to be 40! From winter to spring now back to winter! I can’t wait till the temperature makes up its mind and enjoy the best spring has to offer! Last fall when designers were showing spring 2015, the thing I noticed on every single runway was all white. A spring trend I can’t wait to try!

Free People Sunnies

A few weeks back I wrote about being a bag lady, and this week sunglasses are top of mind, another item which I feel like I purchase often. What’s funny about my sunglasses collection is my least expensive pairs always get the most compliments. So funny how that happens. I can’t get enough of a Free People pair I scooped up last year, that I went and got another pair. They have some of the best sunnies. Here are a few I’ve rounded up, and all just $18!

spring essentials: shorts

Once the weather warms up I find myself reaching for shorts more often. Something about shorts immediately puts me in a casual and relaxed state of mind. Perfect for beach trips and long weekends. When shopping for shorts, I tend to look for these three styles: 2014-04-01_23-14-31

Brights: Coral; Lime

Novelty: Floral Stripe, Floral

Denim: Ripped; Basic
