Hello hello! Remember when I said I was waiting on the mail to come? Well, it came. And I am just as infatuated with my Rebecca Minkoff Medium M.A.B. tote as I thought I would be. One thing that helps me feel immediately more pulled together is having a purse that is not only functional and beautiful but makes a statement, as well. The structure of the M.A.B. tote is perfect for making a little Jenga puzzle out of all my necessities - planner, notecards, cosmetics, wallet... and 100 other things that I manage to stuff in there before leaving the house. Gotta be prepared, right? At least you know who to call when you need a band-aid, stain remover, five types of lip gloss, and styles of sunnies to fit any mood (me, duh). AND because this bag stands up by itself, you won't have to wait for 45 minutes while I fumble around for what you need.

Fun fact: I didn't remember that this black crop top actually has off-the-shoulder sleeves until I got home and was playing dress up in my closet. Oh well. #versatility.

Also, I distressed these jeans (which make an intact appearance here) myself. They used to be the Citizens of Humanity Paley Ankle Jean, which is not currently sold. These ones are similar.

Wanna know how to save a pretty penny and create the hottest trend in denim right in your own home? Sweet. I'll be posting a step-by-step guide sometime soon here :)

One more thing! Those beautiful sparkly drops hanging from my ears? My faves from Made in Mechanicsville. Lauren, the shop's owner, is amazing, and you'll be hearing plenty more about this awesome lady in the next couple days - including where you'll snag these pretties and more - for 40% off with code PDXMADE until the end of August.


This post was in collaboration with Made in Mechanicsville, who provided me with earrings to style. All of the content, ideas, and opinions within this post are my own.

  11. Everything about this post is adorable. I also love the distressed jeans. I hate buying distressed jeans with my own money, but I think that would be a fun way to upcycle old jeans and ones ruined by too much crafting. Lovely post!
