So we have all been at the point in our lives when we go through what I like to call “spring simplifying.” For me it is more along the lines of slimming down my closet, canceling my account on Netflix, and going on a no carb diet. Then before I know it a week later I have 3 new dresses from TJ Maxx, I have signed up again for Netflix AND Hulu, and I find myself stirring a large bowl of pasta. It is a vicous, vicous, stylish, and carbo loaded cycle. Alas! I have broken the cycle and decided to take baby steps.
If you recall my post from a couple of months back about my resolution of taking in a nice bag means donating bags that have not been used in 2 years. Well, I have stuck to that resolution and am donating to a great cause at the same time, win win! So here is how it went down. I made a little trip to TJ Maxx to buy a gift for a friend and of course in a blink of an eye I find myself in the purse section! I then layed my eyes on this amazing retro tropical vibed tote and I could not resist and it was under $30! The size is perfect to throw in your laptop for work, gym clothes for Zumba, or perfect for carrying that bottle of wine and ice cream home from 7 eleven in a very incognito fashion.
In terms of outfit pairings with a bold tote keep it simple, just like my “spring simplifying.” You do want your outfit to be in competition like DJ and Stephanie Tanner from Full House. Ok, had to mention that since I watched Fuller House yesterday and yes I am obsessed. I like to keep it basic with black, whites, or greys as the perfect complement to any statement bag or tote.
Share with me your favorite statement bag finds for this spring!
