If I had to choose between shoes and purses, I’d go with purses every time…ok, well ALMOST every time. Functional, colorful, humongous, patterned, textured – I love them all! It makes me laugh whenever my husband exasperatedly asks why I need so many different ones because, umm, do you not see all the PRETTY?

I feel like I look forward to going to the beach every summer, and then in the blink of an eye it’s suddenly August, and we rush to squeeze in one trip at the very end of the season. And that’s it…repeat the following year. Luckily some friends in Connecticut have moved near the water, so hopefully that’ll be the motivation we need to spend more time frolicking in the waves this year!

Lavish Alice Structured Skater Dress from Asos | Aqua Party Dress from Bloomingdale's | Cruz Dress from Nasty Gal | That's A Wrap Dress from Tobi

Memorial Day is sneaking up on us, and that means it’s almost time to switch out our little black dresses for their white counterparts! Or maybe you already have, you fashion rebel, you. Getting dressed is so effortless when you can pull on a crisp white dress and be out the door in 5 minutes flat without wondering if you’re clashing with your purse and/or shoes. Did I mention that all these beauties are under $100?

The streets are unexpectedly covered in snow and a horrible icy slush right now, so I’ve come to terms (kind of) with the fact that I won’t be packing away any mittens & snow boots this week. In an act of defiance, I traded in my usual black leather purse for this hot pink number! It really pops against my olive wool coat, and the color makes me dream of warmer months ahead.
