If I could wear one outfit to work every day, this would be that outfit.  I just love everything I am wearing and it is also really comfortable.   Work button downs sometimes tend to be stiff and restrictive, but the soft wash oxford shirts from Banana Republic are lightweight and so easy to move in. Then there is the skirt, I love how it is structured at the top with bounce at the bottom.  The whole outfit just moves so easily.  There is just something about clothes that move well, they just add a little pep in my step.

I am also featuring my everyday bag today! My Marc by Marc  Jacobs Hobo was a Nordstrom Rack find about a year ago.  I arrived to a dinner early and stopped in to look around the store.  I had been on the market for a new bag for a few months, and had not yet found the ONE. I spotted this one on the shelf and was immediately drawn to it.  I spent the entire dinner thinking about the bag and how perfect it was for me.  Even at Nordstrom Rack it was still a big purchase, so I decided to sleep on it.  The next morning, I still wanted this bag so bad!  I decided to go back and buy it, and it was definitely a great decision.  For me, this is the perfect everyday bag!  I love that from the side it is pretty slim.  After work, I often head to events and happy hours, and I hate when my bag keeps running into people.  The slim design of this bag prevents that from happening too often.  The color was a huge selling point for me.  I do not want an everyday bag that may clash with what I am wearing, and this purple/wine color goes with everything.  Despite the slim design, this bag holds quite a bit!  I have an umbrella, a full size wallet, a small makeup bag, phone, keys, sunglasses and other small items in my purse at all times.  If you have never purchased a higher end bag before, I recommend looking into one.  This is the second one I have purchased and they really hold up to the test of time. My purses used to start falling apart after a year of use, but  I carried my last one for about 3-4 years. It is actually still in great condition; I just was ready for an update.  It is a big purchase, so you definitely should be sure this is something you can see yourself carrying for several years. A true investment piece!  Thanks for stopping by!

    This is my first visit to your blog! I love your polka dot shirt with the grey. So effortless and stylish. I do like your bag too. I like how it’s purple and not the usual neutral colours. You look fab!
