my little tan bag!

I’m a big bag lover in every sense of the meaning. I love bags and I like big bags. I think I have an irrational fear of being unprepared so I like to carry a lot of stuff. I’ve always admired these cute bags but I never thought I could pull them off. I took a risk with small this bag (c/o) but it really has proven itself useful!

white out

It’s officially white nail polish season. I’ve been wearing alpine snow for two weeks now with no end in sight. Why is white so chic?

white on white outfitI’ve always loved it because when I was about 7 or 8 I tried actual white-out on my nails as polish, not so chic, but foreshadowing of my love for white nails. I love this polish because its super opaque and doesn’t chip like a lot of white opaques can.

I decided to wear white on white to my Smith family birthday party this weekend paired with my Lilly for target pineapple sandals and my valentines day bag from JPS!

What colors are you looking forward to wearing this spring and summer? I’ll be in white!

waiting for spring with my bucket bag

It’s a little puzzling that spring is here when it’s still so chilly, I guess it just hasn’t sprung yet. I turned my closet from winter to spring this past week and I can’t wait to start wearing t-shirt dresses and shorts soon. I’ve pulled out my favorite casual sneaker and ready for some sunshine.
But I really can’t wait to start carrying my summer bags–tote bags, white bags, and colorful bags! I love my new bag from Urban Expressions and can’t wait to circulate it all spring and summer. I’ve never carried a bucket bag before but I’m loving it so far.

It’s so easy as you bop around town, carrying groceries in the house or other bags, it just feels out of the way.urban expressions bucket bag coral and whiteThe bag comes in several colors but I love how the corally red portion, which is really a burlap sort of texture, contrasts with the white (faux) leather. All of Urban Expressions bags are vegan so the material is animal free. But I have to say this bag is very soft–I was really surprised how soft and durable this bag felt even without being leather. I tend to carry around a lot of stuff so its helpful to be able to dump it all in. Points for the bucket bag.bucket bagurban essentials bucket bag
I’ve always felt that the leather bucket bag looks a little 90’s mom…but the 90’s are back and I have a vegan leather bucket bag. No shame here!urban expressions bucket bag coralsummer 2015 Jcrew striped pocket dress, urban expressions bag c/o, slip-on converse
