Tote Bags For Work and Play… Worth the Splurge!

Carrying favorite Saint Louis 'Shopping' tote bag while walking to work in NYC.

Tote bags are an essential part of my ‘everyday’ outfit look. Going to meetings or just doing errands, they are my bag of choice to hold everything that I may need in one place! Because tote bags are used regularly as well as in a variety of situations, I’m careful to select a tote that is classic, well-made and in a neutral/ versatile color. Most importantly, the tote needs to be lightweight. I often carry my laptop or books so the lighter the bag, the better!

 

Tote Bags for Work and Play: My Faves

The Louis Vuitton ‘Neverfull’, Saint Laurent ‘Shopping’Β and the Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ totes shown below are my fave classic totes that I use on rotation. Not only lightweight, these are all minimal in their design resulting in a clean, uncomplicated look. My tote du jour is the Saint Laurent. In classic black, it is elegant and timeless.

I use my bags on a daily basis for years, so I’m willing to spend a little more to make sure that I get one that I will love to use. Below are some totes at a slightly lower price point that I also like… πŸ™‚ Continue Reading →

Nordstrom Sale Ending Soon – See My Faves!

Stuart Weitzman Boots from Nordstrom

It’s been a long time! Meant to post sooner but with summer vacay, the kids (and puppy), and setting up my new office (if you haven’t seen my Instagram stories… yes I have a new office!), I have been busy!! Back to more regular blogging soon but until then, just wanted to jump in here quick to share some of my faves from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The sale has already started and it ends on August 4th! There are so many good picks so head over there Β as certain items are selling out fast! All prices return to their regular non-sale prices on August 5th.

Below are some of my fave items from the sale. Bought the over-the-knee boots I’m wearing above from Nordstrom during one of their previous sales. A timeless fall/winter boot, also love it for its reasonable block heel. You can also see me wear them in this post. There’s a similar one on sale now that I’ve linked below!

Cold Weather Clothing & Accessory Faves + OOTD

Cold Weather Clothing + OOTD

I’m a warm weather person, but I definitely prefer cold weather clothing and accessories. There are just so many more options with fabric, styles, etc. and, of course, layering can get just down right creative as well as practical! It’s really cold in New York (where I live…) right now as I’m writing this post. The winter temps here can extend well into April and even May, so if you’re here or live in a similar climate, now is a great time to update your cold weather looks if you haven’t already. Hopefully, you can take advantage of any post-holiday or late-in-the-season sales.

In this post I am sharing some of my fave winter coats, jackets and cold weather accessories. Fashion-forward as well as functional, these items are available now; but many are selling out fast. Find the pieces you love and fit you well, so they can be worn for the next winter and hopefully several more. πŸ˜‰ Continue Reading →
