I really liked this outfit today. You can tell because I wore the same shirt two days in a row. This outfit doesn’t reflect my usual style and I kind of like that. I say “kind of” because I’m not sure if this was accidental or if I really am that amazing. No… I’m pretty amazing.
Le Mode sent me this bag as another fashion blogger chain project! It is the Traveling Paths Bag. Next I am handing it off to Mara! So check out her blog in a few days. I guess you can now if you want to..
I really liked this bag. I’m kind of sad that I have to send it off! It reminds me of my tan bag from Korea I’ve been using for my gym things but it’s prettier. I love the weaving details on the front! I also love that it’s big. It would be perfect for weekends away, flights, and it can even be used as a diaper bag if you’re a cool mom. If you’re not, then it’s probably not for you.
If this thing came with straps, it would’ve been a winner. Update: It does! Le Mode just forgot to put it in with the bag when they sent it to me! Also, the handles are flat and not rounded so when you pick it up, it bends. I like to hook my bags on my arms (see above) so it dug into my skin. I have weak arm veins so it hurt. (I sold plasma for a year.)
Also, a special shout-out to Liana of Fashion Bag 411 and Beauty Bag 411! She very generously sent me a bunch of clothes! This blazer was my favorite. I haven’t worn it until now because I’ve been meaning to pair it with this Love Stitch blouse but I kept pairing it with other stuff and I didn’t want to overwear it but I think it’s too late now. Thank you so much, Liana!!!! Fun fact: Chase and Liana (and her twin sister) grew up in the same town!!!
I’m wearing a Forever 21 blazer (from Liana), Love Stitch blouse ($4), Anthropologie necklace(free with gift cards), DownEast Basics shirt (gift from my mother-in-law – buy it!), J Brand jeans($158 – buy it!), and JCPenney heels (free with gift cards) with the Traveling Paths Handbag (c/o Le Mode Accessories).
Friends, meet pants. Pants, meet friends. We’re all going to get along just fine…as soon as I find a skinny brown belt. Until then we’ll just have to make do. By we I just mean me…unless someone has an extra belt for me to borrow and never return.
The next time you’ll see my face is when my skin clears up…which is never.
Don’t forget about the giveaway! It’s still a couple days fresh so not a lot of people have entered. Follow my blog with bloglovin’ for an extra entry and because you love me. If not, just pretend.
I’m wearing a thrifted Talbots blazer ($4), Love Stitch blouse ($4), Zara pants ($20), and Target clogs(gift from my in-laws) with a JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).
