Jeans and a t-shirt have never looked so good. These 12 bags, totes, and clutches are the perfect way to make a simple outfit look perfectly put together…
So, does anyone else have a bag obsession after this roundup? Because clearly, I do.
And I’m curious to know… which one is your favorite?
I thought I had found my new ‘everyday’ uniform in this post (the lunch date outfit), but now I’m thinking this one is it. Comfy but cool.. I would totally wear this outfit everyday, if it wasn’t weird to never change my clothes. Bonus: My birthday is coming up, so it looks like I just added 5 more things to my b-day list.
3. Pippi Cuff
P.S. Did this weekend go by super fast for you? It seemed like it was over before it even started. No complaints though. Hope your week is off to a great start.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I have a polka dot addiction. And it is only getting worse with time. So, seeing as though these cheerful circle patterns aren’t going away anytime soon, at least in my closet, I’ve decided to just own it. AND channel my obsession into a style post for ya…
What to wear to lunch with friends:
- Bridge & Burn Polka Dot Shirt
- Karen Walker Super Duper Sunnies
- A.P.C. Clutch
- Imogene Cutout Brogues by J Shoes
What to wear to a business meeting:

Are you a polka dots lover too? If so, which look is your favorite?
At this point, I am starting to feel like a travel pro, at least when it comes to flying, because in the last month alone, I’ve flown across the country four times – two round trips from Florida to Jacksonville and back again. I know lots of people don’t like to fly, my husband included, but for me, as long as I’m wearing comfy clothes and have lots of things to keep me entertained on the flight, I don’t really mind long flights.
Oh yeah. And there’s one other thing that is an absolute must for me when it comes to travel…packing light! I personally hate checking a bag, so I only bring what I can fit into a carry-on. Simple as that. Needless to say, this often proves to be challenging, especially when I’m packing for a long trip. So I get pretty creative with it…as in ‘wearing a pair of chunky wedge shoes on the plane because they won’t fit in my suitcase but you know I’m not leaving without them’ creative.
Seriously though, aside from those travel-musts, I have a handful of essentials that I bring with me on pretty much every trip – which keeps me sane while packing a tiny suitcase to the brim (a big bag for toting things around, my watch, a comfy dress, sunglasses, a couple of my favorite jewelry pieces, and a great pair of shoes)..
- Rugby Striped Dress
- Color Block Cold Picnic Watch
- Hepcat Shades
- Arcos Earrings
- Crosstown Moving Mountains Bag
- Cork Wedge Sandals
- Round Faceted Ring
