It’s The Purse

It’s the purse.

It’s the purse. Does anyone else feel like this year is going to be drastically different than 2016? I genuinely feel the earth’s shift of consciousness. I’m not entirely sure what that means — but I’m positively optimistic.

And more importantly, I’m positively optimistic about the next set of #OOTD blog posts I’m going to be sharing with you. As I’m sure you’ve all gathered by the posts on social media — I’ve been collaborating with handbag brand: Holly and Tanager. H&T has set out to create bags that are designed to keep up with you and your busy schedule. Hence the hashtag #OwnYourSchedule 😉

This week, or what was supposed to be this week, before I remembered there isn’t enough time in one day … I mentioned on my Instagram I’d be sharing this outfit. Yes, it’s Saturday, and yes — I’m lazily writing this in bed, it’s still *technically* considered “this week” … right?! RIGHT.

This is the first time I’ve worn these American Apparel leggings. I LIVE IN THEM. They were a bit pricey, $60 bucks but when you have friends like Paige Charbat who force you to buy things you definitely NEED, who push the “purchase” button for you online … $60 dollars on a pair of classic, high waisted and perfectly conditioned leggings doesn’t sound SO bad!

I love bodysuits. They make me feel sexy. Weird, right? Cause it’s basically an adult onsie! HA! This one is from Zara.


I paired the pants with favored accessories. A choker I can’t stop wearing. I can’t stop wearing a lot of things it sounds like … ? My #WhiteCoatWinter is back — vintage find in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, PA. And then OF COURSE — my H&T bag. This one is the Sidekick 2.0. Throw on a pair of perscription sunglasses from Eye Buy Direct and you have yourself a cute little outfit for strolling down the streets of Printers Row!

BTW this was the first unacceptably cold day in Chicago. @snrodich and I shot these looks back in December.

  1. Seriously love all of this. And I agree… $60 sounds like a lot when you’re buying leggings EXCEPT when they’re quality and you’ll wear the shit out of them!

    You’re hair is killing me. You make me want to grow and go back to red! Stahp! ❤
