Happy Wednesday, y’all! How has your week been so far? For me, I am just glad that we are a step closer to the weekend, if ya know what I mean. Anyway, does anyone else feel like they need a month long vacation every other month until December? Because I sure do. I’m planning a Christmas cruise and am 100% ready to leave today. Have any of you ladies been on a cruise lately? If so, let me know where were the best places you’ve been. I would love to research all of your suggestions and find the perfect place for me.
Today’s post is super short, but I am sharing my go-to spring/summer look with y’all. If you don’t know already, I am obsessed with white jeans. I love to wear them all year around and tend to have 3-5 pair at a time varying in length, fit and design (ripped or non-ripped). I pair them with a simple baby pink top I scored for $11 at Old Navy and my favorite Steve Madden wedges. This top is really comfortable and can be worn to work with straight leg pants or tucked into a skirt. I have it in 4 colors and wear at least one every week. This scarf is about 5 years old, so I can’t find it anywhere, but I Old Navy and Charlotte Russe are my go-to spots for new scarves and Plato’s closet, is where I go to get gently used scarves at a deep discount. My earrings and bracelets are from Rylee Leigh – aren’t they adorable? Arm parties are my favorite type of parties, so I love stacking all these bracelets together. These earrings are now my go-to pair because they are super cute, light and they compliment most outfits.
Well, that’s all that I have for you sweet friends today. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and an even better happy hour. *cheers*
It’s a happy, happy Tuesday friends! I am so excited for another week to hop on the blog and talk about fashion and fun. Lately, I feel like I have lost my blog mojo, so I will be trying new fun things to incorporate for y’all and for me. The first thing is a new blog series for summer: #WorkWearWednesday starting this Wednesday. I’m actually super stoked about this because I know finding cute work clothes that you actually want to wear in 80+ degree weather can be everything but fun. Also, since I’ve recently jumped into the big girl world with graduating college and starting a full-time job, I feel like this new series will be a fun way for y’all, my readers, and myself to get some work inspiration.
So, onto today’s post: Bucket bags. Has anyone else seen this craze with them? I personally am SUPER obsessed. For many reasons actually. One being that most bucket bags that a variety of handles and straps which make them super versatile and easily used for various outings. Secondly, I love to use it as a “throw-it-all” bag! Partly because they are spacious but also because they can sometimes be closed with a button and then pinched, I feel like my items are less likely to fall out versus when I use totes that sometimes only have a clasp on them but no zipper. Lastly, most bucket bags have some type of large insert that you can use for makeup, personal items or anything important. Below, I’m sharing the 3 places my bucket bag has been most useful.
Traveling – Just as I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my weekends have been filled with traveling for blogging meet-ups to just to visits friends. Using a bucket bag to travel in style is amazing. A big plus is that this style bag tends be very expand with flexible material so you can definitely get a day/night worth of items into your bag and lighted your luggage load AKA save $$$ when traveling. HOLLA!
Beach trip – So if you’ve in the south, you’ve probably already been to the beach at least 5 times this season because it has been H-O-T! Last week, I grabbed a couple of friends and we headed out to the lake for some fun and relaxation. I actually used my bucket to hold all my beach goodies such as my blanket, drinks, snacks, sunscreen and everything else. Perfect!
To work – 100% the best type of bag to transition from work to the gym. I literally kept EVERYTHING I needed for the gym in there and could keep all my personal items inside the huge insert.
Well, that’s all that I have for you sweet friends. Anyone else jumping on this bucket bag trend? Honestly, I love it and need everything single color out there – seriously. Be sure to check out Mignon’s Treasures for more sweet bags on their website and Facebook.
Y’all, it’s finally Fri-YAY – thank the Lord! This week has been one for the books. On top of starting a new job, I attended a fun meet up with my Style Collective sisters (can’t wait to share that with y’all), engaged with many colleagues at a conference and completed about 100 other things. And if I can keep it 100% real with you, I am exhausted. Completely. However, I am excited to be back on my blogging game this wonderful Friday.
I am so obsessed with wearing colorful kimonos in the spring. Not only are they a fun way to spice up your outfit, but perfect for those cool spring and summer nights. I am so lucky to have snagged this one on clearance. Score! This coral is officially my spring color, so expect to keep seeing it again and again. Ripped jeans are always a classic and staple to keep in my closet plus these cute booties that I snagged from DSW. So versatile and can be worn all year around.
If you are obsessing over these pretty jewels, no worries because so am I. I got all three of these beautiful pieces in my Rocksbox this month. My earrings and cuff are both Kendra Scott. This gorgeous layered necklace is Sophie Harper. I seriously want to keep every piece because they are all so dainty and pretty.
P.S. – Have you heard of Rocksbox before? They are a jewelry lending subscription service that sends you three pieces of jewelry at a time for you to style, try out and decide if you like. If you like them, you can buy them at a discounted price and use your $21 a month shine credit towards it. If you hate it, you can mail it back to try another piece(s). Simple, right? And if you want to try it one month for free, I have a special code for you: lotsofsassxo.
