Last weekend we were in the 80’s and it was glorious! Today I wake up to upper 40’s and cloudy skies. So it was back in the closet for my reliable old leather jacket. To lift my mood from the weather being grey and chilly again, I threw on a pearl necklace and my Tory Burch glitter ballet flats. These flats always make me feel like I could click my heels together and repeat – there’s no place like a warm beach!
And what’s not to like about a comfy pair of distressed boyfriend jeans with a long shirt on top; casual, comfortable and stylish. Plus, the jeans were purchased last year on clearance. Love sales!
Until next time ♥

After a slight detour with the sunglasses, I turned my attention to something I can use – handbags! Fendi’s designs can go from the wild and whimsical to so classic. I looked at two that could fall into both of those categories. The first one was the brown leather large Peekaboo with whip stitch detail (similar here) that can be worn with the shoulder strap or as a hand bag. It is a great handbag and can hold whatever you need but it was entirely too big for me.
Now this bag, the Demi Jour with color block Fendi (you can see the similar bag behind me and here)? I love the colors, the style and the size. This handbag is going on the list of potential anniversary presents.
But what was I wearing? The sweater I got a couple of years ago at BCBG. It is so comfy and warm and I can dress it up or down plus the message works. The shoes are Tory Burch ballet flats. When you find something that works get them in several colors, I have four pairs of these. The pants are the Minnie from JCrew also purchased a few years ago. I believe in getting some trending things but I think it is better to purchase more items that are timeless that you can change up with an occasional trendy item.

I have a few things by Tory Burch – especially her Reva flats – but I don’t have a single Tory handbag. The Robinson line may just change that. The other day when strolling through the handbag department at Saks with a friend, we nearly gave ourselves whiplash when we walked past this beauty. Putting it in reverse, much cooing over the bag was done before returning to what we needed to do. But the memory of the bag was safely filed away in my memory. When I returned for FNO I walked through the handbag department to say hello to the bag and lust after it again only to find it gone. Unhappy sigh……..
But happiness returned when the bag showed up on the arm of one of the models during the fashion show that night. I could’ve sworn it waved at me. This baby is on my Christmas list – my new crave! It must be working it’s magic across the land because I recently got a message from a friend saying that someone she knew had just sent her a text about being on the hunt for the bag.
The Robinson line is named after her parents and in her words “epitomizes classic style.” I believe it. The line comes in a variety of colors and styles. This one is the dome satchel in Alpine Snow; listing for $595.
