Black & White…

So it’s been a minute but I am back with another outfit that I have been loving lately!  This was from our vacation to South Carolina and we had a great time!  I have gotten so much use out of this $22 Zara dress this summer!  I normally don’t go for white especially with a little one, but I am obsessed with the details and fabric of this easy to wear shift dress!

This Bag is an older Everything Tote by Rebecca Minkoff and you can find solid colors here.  Shoes are also Zara from this summers collection and if you haven’t tried their shoes yet you need to!  They have great sales and I love how fashion forward they are at a  great price point!

Pom pom is from Amazon and can be found here.  Another fave are my sunglasses that I picked up last summer and still loving now!  Check them out here!

Longchamp…

Ok you guys I really wanted to share my thoughts with you about these tote bags because I am seriously in love with them!  I always remember seeing these odd little bags hanging in random stores like Nordstrom, Bloomys, and even at the airport.  I never knew the convince and practicality of these little gems until my sister had one!  Then I obviously copied her and put the Large Le Pliage Tote on my Christmas list a few years back and have loved it ever since!
IMG_6328I have had the olive greenish color for about three years now and have used it as a diaper bag, carry on, gym bag, and everyday purse.  This bag is perfection if you have an older baby, you are in school, or you carry a lot to work, or if you travel! So I think that pretty much covers everyone!
IMG_6321 They are super convenient because they fold up super slim and can be easily packed away in a suitcase while traveling which is what I did when my husband and I traveled to Costa Rica a few months ago.  This bag came in handy a million times from using it as a carry on, shopping in markets, and going to the beach I am so happy I brought it!

IMG_6320 On the same trip we somehow accumulated a ton of extra things/ended up throwing everything in a huge ball so we couldn’t fit it all into our suitcase and this travel tote would have been a lifesaver.  My sisters both had this expandable version and I wished I had it especially on the way back.IMG_6330 The amazing part of this travel tote is that it folds up super small but then expands to a huge bag that can easily be carried with the shoulder strap.  What I would have given for this on the way home instead of 3 backpacks and a 70lb suitcase!  Note to self:pack less next time 😉IMG_6329So after Christmas I had a reward card to Bloomingdale’s because I am a loyalist which is totally free and doesn’t require you to link a debit or open a credit card so I hight recommend signing up if you frequent shopping there and you can even use it online.  We purchased a lot of our families gifts online for Christmas and then I had $50 off any purchase pretty much just like a gift card.  Then my mom gave me a $50 off a $200 or more purchase so this is the only reason I finally purchased one at $100 off!  I was so happy and have used it a ton since purchasing it!
IMG_6336 They are pretty pricey so for a while I was skeptical about them when you can easily shop at Target or pretty much anywhere to find a tote bag, but after having and using this constantly I am really happy with the quality and how convenient these bags really are!IMG_6324 The travel tote unzipped is the perfect size for an overnight trip and can easily fit everything you need for 1-2 nights.  This would also I think work really nicely for a carry on bag when flying.  Obviously check the dimensions before boarding but I think it is really similar to my suitcase I normally use. Totally expanded you can fit a ton of clothes and shoes!  This bag would have been amazing when I was in college and I know that my sisters got a ton of use out of it traveling back and forth from school to home!

IMG_6337I just wanted to share my experience with these bags, if you are in the market for a new tote I would highly recommend these.  I think with the quality, convenience, and color choices you can’t go wrong!

Casual Day Out…

We had such a great time visiting with my mom when she was here even though we had the craziest weather from snow to 65 and sunny!  We are so lucky that we get to spend more time with our family since we live a little closer to home!  We can’t wait to see everyone again and are counting the days!!  Here we were headed out to run some errands and grab some lunch and enjoy the beautiful weather!

Bag Review…

I just wanted to do a review about a new bag I was so generously gifted for Christmas this year.  It’s the Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote, quite a long name I know!  I have been looking at this purse for a while now going back and forth over the colors and if I would really like it or not.  I have to say that I am in love with this bag! I think that it is beautiful and classic, but also very functional for being a mom with lots of things to carry around for a toddler.  I would never just go out and buy a purse like this so I am so grateful that my parents and hub got it for me!

IMG_6884

I was tossed up between this bag and the new Rebecca Minkoff tote bag that is also beautiful but the deciding factor for me was that the Tory came with a cross body strap.  This has made a world of difference for me constantly carrying around my daughter.  Now that she is getting older she doesn’t need as many things like blankets and bottles so I can get away with one bag for the both of us.

IMG_6873

The bag is made out of Saffiano leather has a zip pocket and two media holders on the inside.  The cross body strap is removable and also adjustable which is perfect for us shorter gals!  One of the best features of this bag would be the two large zip pockets on the front and back of the bag.  These are perfect for important documents like passports, work papers, and your wallet.  The durability of the leather and the construction of the bag assures me that I will have this for a very long time.  I love that it is a tote, but beautifully holds it shape and doesn’t slouch when its sitting on a table.

I am thrilled with this bag and couldn’t be more excited to add it to my closet!  My mom and Eric purchased this bag from Bloomingdales, it is still on the website and comes in a couple different colors.  If you are interested in checking this bag out I would suggest to wait for a coupon and get on their friends and family list so you can save up to 20%!

If you are interested in seeing what I carry in my bag promise you won’t judge and check out my video below!
