The Perfect Everyday Bag

Say hello to my new bag, The O.M.G by Lo & Sons. This bag is the ultimate everyday bag. It has a designated pocket for just about any item you could possible need to lug around with you. Yes, that means there is even a SHOE pocket - a shoe pocket!

I've been so unimpressed with the one measly side pocket only handbags I have been using. The inner contents of my bag looked like a heaping mess and much like everything else in life... once it looks like a heaping mess, it becomes an actual heaping mess. My things were disorganized and dysfunctional. It made me feel disorganized and dysfunctional. It's only been a couple of days, but I feel like I leave the house with my sanity slightly more intact and ready to take on the day and that, is worth the price.

Weekend Plans

Hooray, hooray! The weekend is almost here. Does anyone have any big plans? I'm hoping to finally replace all of my summer clothes with my fall clothes and organize my room. That's some serious fun for an organizational geek like me... Nate and I are also hoping to make it out to the apple orchard. Last year was kind of a bust, so I'm hoping second time is a charm.

Latest Read: Clementine Daily

I don’t know if this is a sign of me getting older, but I have recently started subscribing to websites via e-mail.  It feels a little archaic, but it’s really handy – I promise! It’s the easiest way for me to get my daily does of fashion, interior design, beauty and career advice all in one. My latest subscription?  Clementine Daily.

The design alone should have you hooked.

Girl on a Budget: Puppy Sweater

I saw this sweater in the Anthropologie window last week and snapped a photo of all of its adorableness as a reminder for later. I pretty much knew I wouldn't be able to purchase it, but hey - can't a girl dream? They paired it with black waxed jeans, a chunky, beaded necklace and a camel colored utility jacket. All these pieces perfectly contrasted the sweetness instilled in the sweater and I loved how effortlessly cool it looked. However, I'm a girl on a budget (GOAB) and a trendy sweater for $100  isn't exactly in the "the budget".

Enter Old Navy. While they're not identical, there is no way even I can logically justify spending twice the money on essentially the same piece.
