Happy Thursday! Anyone else feel like this week FLEW by? Either way, I’m pumped for the weekend because the boo and I are going hiking! In other life news, I have an interview today and I’m a little nervous! I don’t know why I get SO nervous because I’m a good interview person, it’s just very nerve-wracking having to “sell yourself” ya know? I’ll let ya’ll know how it goes!
In purse & fashion news, my new favorite color combination is grey and pale pink. I have no idea why, but I’m COMPLETELY obsessed with how these colors compliment each other. The grey lends a very modern & sleek look while the pink softens it up.

Don’t you absolutely love this duo? If I had a do-over, I would have my bridesmaids wearing a tea length grey dress with ivory shoes and carrying a bouquet of pale pink peonies. Ah, sounds dreamy right? If these colors fit your palette, I’ve found you the perfect bridal clutches. I can’t decide between the grey or pink so why not show you both? And if you can’t chose either, have one for the ceremony & one for the reception?

I must find where that pink clutch is for sale, I absolutely NEED it in my wardrobe or I will die. Just die. (I say in my best Scarlet O’Hara accent).
Happy Thursday Purseday!
Although I’m absolutely obsessed with this entire outfit, let’s focus on that beautiful blue bag for a minute. I absolutely love the pop of blue against the black and white skirt & the bright watermelon top. This bag is the ultimate summer clutch, don’t you think?

Because what’s a better union than a string of pearls and a brightly colored purse?
I’m an emotional person, there’s no doubt about that. But circumstances in my life cause me to be extra emotional lately, circumstances which some of you know about. So when I saw this little photograph I’m about to share, I literally burst into tears.
There are countless ways you can thank your bridesmaids for being a part of your big day, and giving them a heartfelt gift is traditionally the path that’s chosen. But this gift, above, goes above and beyond just hanging them a bag. This bride wrote an incredibly heartfelt message to one of her girls and had it stitched into the lining. That, to me, is one of the sweetest gestures I’ve ever seen.
When you’re a bride, you can’t help but get a little narcissistic. This day, after all, is about YOU, your husband and your life. It’s your day. With how lightening fast the day goes by, you sometimes forget to thank the people who made it all happen, thank the people who stood beside you on the biggest day of your life, who held your dress while you peed or made sure you had a bite of chicken. The day passes and before you know it, you’re married and you never even got to say goodbye to the ones who believed in you and him from the very beginning. This small sentiment in this bridesmaid’s purse will show her, that no matter what happens, their friendship meant everything to the bride and in that moment in time, that significant, HUGE moment, their friendship was still one of the most important things to her. Even if they aren’t friends anymore or time has taken its toll on their relationship, she’ll always have that little message to look back on that proves that their friendship mattered, that it was real.
I’m probably reading way too much into this due to what’s going on today, but I can’t help it. Brides, please, take a few moments to tell the ones you love just how much you love them. Take a few minutes to hug your bridesmaids and convey to every single one of them how much their friendship means to you. Whether that’s a stitch in their handbag or during a tear-filled hug before you hop in your getaway vehicle, find time to make it happen. Friendships may not last forever, but in that moment, they are one of the most important things to hold onto and to recognize.
I know what you’re thinking, it’s barely summer, how on EARTH could I already be thinking about fall? Well, that is a valid question. I’m a summer girl, I love everything about this upcoming season. I love the smell of the ocean and taste of tart lemonade, the sound of kids laughing and playing outside, the glitter of lighting bugs soaring through the night. As much as I love summer, I also love handbags and I couldn’t tear myself away from the fall collection preview at Neiman Marcus! I mean, take a gander, you’ll find yourself kind of wishing for fall, if even just for the fashion.

So, you know, this whole Royal Wedding shindig is coming up. Have you heard of it? No? Well, it’s sort of a big deal in the wedding world. I’ve never been big on celebrity/royal affairs, but for some reason, this wedding has taken hold of me and I must admit, I’ve got serious K & W fever. I partly blame the Lifetime movie William and Katie for really solidifying my obsession. Well, my friends, what better way to celebrate this monumental occasion than with some clutches made for a princess? Full of glitz, glamour and sophistication, these are clutches I could certainly see Kate carrying around town or even on her wedding day!
Angela is my cyber twin sister, I swear. I’ve always loved Angela from her hilarious posts to her adorable posts, but really connected with her over pop culture, Seinfeld to be exact. I believe I gchated ” Hellooooooooooooo! Ps Angela, I said that in my best Seinfeld voice.” Her response? “AHHH NEWMAN!” I knew we’d be fast friends. I’m so happy she came back from her hiatus to post for me. Angela, you are the George to my Jerry and thank you so much for posting!

So in honor of her much deserved honeymoon & the fact that it’s Thursday Purseday, I’ve picked out some of my favorite brightly colored beach totes that are perfect for a tropical getaway!
