Chambray + Leather

Another one of my “easier” looks to throw together. I also love this pairing with a pair of heels which makes it so simple to go from day-to-night. And hey, I can’t ever say no to leather pants.

This Madewell Bucket Bag has been my go-to bag in my spring wardrobe. Though, I usually opt for more structured bags, it is a nice change from my usual. It’s also not too small or too big and and not too heavy for a cross-body bag of this size. The leather is also very thick and sturdy. Dare I say that it looks better with wear? Some reviews mention that the leather stains clothes. I haven’t had this problem at all, but if you wear light colors and tend to get a little “damp” during warmer days, this is something that I would be cautious of if wearing cross-body. Highly recommend.

You can get it at Shopbop or at Madewell in black or dark camel. There is also a slightly smaller version in a Light Camel that is currently 25% off. Find it here.

Also shop it here along with the rest of the ensemble!

Can you believe we are approaching the end of 2014?! It seems rather surreal and I think I need some time to reflect on what I have / haven’t done this past year. I think I may be getting to a phase in my life where it’s starting to really become important to me as to whether I have achieved the goals I had set out for myself when I was younger. Of course, I have to accept that we don’t all follow the “standard” path that our culture may have set out for us, and well , to put it bluntly, sh!t happens and things always don’t go as planned. However, I am also not content with sitting around (whether intentionally or not) while the world passes me by. Anyone else feel this way this time of year?

The Canadian Tuxedo

I had no idea that wearing denim on denim was called the “Canadian Tuxedo”. I mean, is that really a thing?! If it is, then although technically not denim on denim, this is my version of the Canadian Tuxedo…and I think I like it!
