Fashion Friday: Pretty Bags For People Who Actually Have S#*! To Carry!

I keep seeing all these teeeeeeeeeeny tiny mini bags everywhere and on every fashion darling, but you guys, the number of times I am going somewhere where I only need a lipstick and credit card is like…… never.  I am either toting around my laptop, samples and work stuff or a diaper clutch, sippy cup, snacks and kid stuff.  And I know a lot fo you are the same way! My dream bag would have a wide crossbody strap like the Hermes Evelyne bag with a body the size of my Cuyana tote- pretty structured with some pretty details on the exterior and a couple decent pockets on the inside.  Is that so much to ask?  Until that bag is made,  I rounded up a slew of pretty but roomy bags that can actually fit the stuff of life in them!

I also discovered this company, Senreve, which makes this great bag that can be a backpach, tote or shoulder bag and has tons of great compartments.  They also make this bag liner that makes it a cinch to switch bags without forgetting anything!

 

Fashion Friday: Wine Time

I’ve already noticed that for fall that wine and deep red/plum tones are gonna be HUGE, especially when paired with brighter reds and pinks or navy.  I’m not usually a red person with interiors, but I do enjoy a good red when dressing. Here are some picks that follow this hot fall trend.

Fashion Friday: Wear Now & Later

We’re sort of in no man’s land clothes shopping-wise right now– summer is half over so it’s hard to buy stuff that you know you can only wear a couple more months, but it feels WAY, WAY too early for fall clothes. The catalogs coming out right now with Halloween stuff are making me CRAZY.  What’s a gal to do?

Well, there are plenty of things that will work both now and later.  Workhorse pieces that you can rock now when it’s hot or later when it’s cooler.  Here are four examples to get your mind working:

Fashion Friday: 11 Looks For Busy Moms

Many of you have asked for a Fashion Friday focusing on summer outfits for busy moms chasing toddlers or running all over creation.  That means no strapless bras, no Spanx, no heels you can’t walk in, no super short dresses you can’t bend over in…. limitations galore, yes, but you still want to look cute and don’t want to wear “athleisure” all the time, right? So here are 11 outfits that may help you find something beyond Lululemon to wear!

This is sort of my everyday look in the summer because I have a hatred of shorts.

These pants are comfy and breezy ( again, I hate shorts)

However, if you like shorts, this look is adorable and can go from the playground to lunch with friends no problem.

And  if you want something a little more formal, these are actually reasonably flattering shorts and I love the pattern. (NECKLACE LINKED HERE– I’m obsessed.)

I’ve said it before, Persifor dresses are awesome- stretchy almost bathing suit material that aren’t too tight and keep you cool. I wear these on super hot days! Also, this is my new nail polish obsession- lasts so long and is the perfect super sheer color.

These linen shorts are cut a little wider at the bottom so more flattering to thighs! And these self tan drops are great- put a couple (or more if you wanna get darker) into your regular face or body lotion for a custom glow.

These pants may make you feel like you’re wearing PJ’s but you’re not! WINNING!

I’m pretty obsessed with my camo Rothy’s loafers, these red ones feel Nantucket-y. Also, these jeans are killer and 40% off!

I wore one of these tunics the other day on Insta Stories and got so many compliments! This is the dress version I just bought and it’s the perfect day to dinner kinda look for summer. Also that bag is ALLLLL the heart eye emojis!

For slightly cooler days this look can take you just about anywhere. And bodysuits are the BEST under boxy jackets- more slimming than tucking in a cami or shirt.

While a jumpsuit may not be mom-gear, it is friendly for chasing kids at a more formal event– and this one COMES IN TALL SIZES!!!! Hallelujah!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
