Hi!

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and beauty. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Season of the Shoulder Bag

The Season of the Shoulder Bag

 Maggie a la Mode - Kate Spade New York Devoe Street Sophie, Theory Matara Embroidered Cotton Blouse, J Crew toothpick jean Daly, Aquazzura Sexy Thing, Ray Ban Clubmaster

One thing I have been noticing lately is the rise of the shoulder bag. You've seen it too, right? There's the Chloé Faye bag, the Gucci Dionysus, and shoulder bags by Tory Burch, Saint Laurent, and more. Of course I can't righteously afford one of those, but I found a great look-for-less by Kate Spade that I love even more! It also comes in a nice sand color, which I considered getting too. It was about 49/51% on which one I got (and clearly you know which one won). With the rise in popularity of the shoulder bag, I'll be happily jumping on this bandwagon! They are great for those days you need something bigger than a crossbody and bigger than a tote. 

And can we talk about how adorable this top is?? It's by Theory and these little "popcorn" details are just too cute to pass up. It has a slight flare, but not too much, in both the sleeves and body, and is 100% cotton. If cotton's not your jam, there's also a plain white silk version that's just as gorgeous. Should I buy that one too?? I think I might have to...

ps. Are you shopping the Shopbop Sale? I think I'm sitting this one out because I just really don't need anything right now, and only 20 or 25% seems a little too small of a discount to splurge for me. However, if you find some goodies, you can get 20% up to $500 or 25% off $500+ with code EOTS17! Let me know what you get!
