One of the great things about blogging is that you’ll be inspired by other bloggers to try things you’d never typically try. Thanks to a few key bloggers (like Alex of Delayed Missives, who had to decide between a pink and yellow bag, and Taylor of Sterling Style, who brilliantly mixes in colors to every outfit), this bag came to be in my closet. Here’s the breakdown:
Jacket: Goodwill (Tahari)
Dress: TJ Maxx (The Limited)
Wedges: Garage sale (Lauren Ralph Lauren)
Sunnies: Forever 21
Bag: Banana Republic
A few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have even considered buying a hot pink bag, but after spotting it on sale at Banana Republic, I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. Then it went on super clearance a few weeks later, at which point I knew I could find some way to work it into my wardrobe. I can already tell it’s going to become a key piece that will go with more than I initially thought.
I definitely went for the ladylike look today, pairing a jersey dress with this blazer I recently acquired from Goodwill. I couldn’t help but carry my bag to add that extra pop of color to the outfit (my nails certainly help, too).
Oh, and did you notice? I got an official email address for my blog. You can now email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments. I love hearing from my readers!
