Saddle Bags

Bag: Zara from last fall - very similar here

I usually gravitate toward more classic handbags that will be 'in style' for a long time, but a trend I can't get enough of is saddle-style bags! Chloe made these all the rage starting last spring, but the trend is even bigger now and there are some amazing and affordable options right now (they were hard to find for awhile)!

I get questions about my Zara cross-body (pictured above) all the time, and though it's sold out, I did find a really similar option on their site. I just got this bag in the mail (in black) and it's gorgeous! You would never ever know it was Forever 21, and I'll definitely be wearing it all summer long. I also l-o-v-e this studded & embossed black saddle bag. Below are a few more options too!

Top: c/o Chicwish | Jeans: AG (my all-time favorite!)
Clutch: Clare V (similar for less) | Heels: Steve Madden
Earrings: Kendra Scott

I love a unique top (bell sleeves #forthewin), and especially one that I can also style for the office! Also, it doesn't get more springy than this pretty blush/lavender shade. Because my top makes a statement, I kept everything else pretty simple. I do want to note that I'm so happy with my Steve Madden strappy heels! They're actually comfortable because the leather is soft and because there's a little platform under your foot. I wore them for several hours at a wedding a few weeks ago (my first time wearing them), and was pleasantly surprised that my feet weren't dying. The only disclaimer is that they do run a bit narrow, so they may not fit everyone.

Pink Leather Mini Skirt
Tank: Topshop (this year's version) | Skirt: c/o Chicwish (wearing size small)
Clutch: Clare V (similar for less) | Heels: Splendid
Necklace: Forever 21 (also own this choker) | Lips: MAC 'soar'

I knew ordering this faux leather skirt was a bit of a risk, but I'm so glad I did because it's amazing! So flattering, so unique, and the quality is great. I also like that it's a mini without being too mini, if ya know what I mean. I styled it in a more carefree, summery way for this post because I instantly loved the tank and wrap choker with it (this would be perfect for a summer concert!), but you could also wear it with pretty much any type of white blouse for a warmer and/or more conservative look.

I'm happy to report that I successfully painted nearly half of the interior of our house this weekend - all by myself! It definitely surprised Trey when he got home last night haha. I am so sore today though! If you caught Friday's post then you know the vibe I'm going for with our home decor. Painting our walls white felt like the perfect fresh start and blank slate! I'm excited to continue decorating over the next several months and to eventually show you how it turns out :)
