I have been looking for a new handbag and this time I wanted something sort of fun for everyday. Maybe a bright color. I kept thinking yellow or lime green all summer long, but when I saw this one by Michael Kors, it was definitely the one that caught my eye. Perfect size for everyday and there are a lot of pockets inside so I have a place for everything. I LOVE that. Fun orange , looks like fall. I have a great black bag, so this finishes off my everyday needs. With this being quite a splurge, I needed to just look at the basics and some sales for the rest of my updates.
I have quite a few brown, tan and chocolate pieces that I can spruce up with some fun jewelry or a scarf, but my navy was looking a little worn and I can always use black.
This is what I came home with. 4 new pieces that will get a lot of use.
A basic navy tee, on sale for $4.99. I will wear that constantly and every year you need a nice new fresh one so it doesn't look faded and tacky. Love this jean jacket. The darts make it sort of fitted, not boxy, so it is really flattering on. Perfect for our fall and winter temps. A great white shirt, cute loafers and dark jeans and this will take me anywhere. I think if I pair it with the new navy tee, slacks or jeans and a really cute scarf, it will be fabulous too. On Sale for $12.99. I think a jean jacket can be worn over just about anything.
This is such a pretty silk blouse and I will wear it as a light jacket. It will be perfect when you just need something really light. Love the stripes and the sleeves roll up and button, so it can go casual with white jeans too. Great find at Ross for $11.99. Can' you see this with a bright red, yellow or green tee underneath and some white or black slacks. Stunning.
I like this top because the embroidery detail is beige, not white. Perfect to wear with my beige slacks and khakis. Cute fit too and this neckline is so flattering on everyone. I can also pair this with black slacks and a beige cashmere sweater that I have. Another Ross find for $8.99
That's it for my fall updates so far. I do need a new pair of Tennis Shoes, so I will look for those soon.
