Ya’ll I am so excited for today’s post, because I am madly in love with my new pink backpack purse!  I have had my eye on the Jetsetter from Henri Bendel for quite some time now.  I originally went to the store to check out the non-mini version, but it was just a bit too big for what I was looking for.  When I saw they had made a mini version, I knew I needed it.  It was all about waiting for the perfect color to come along.  This pink color was just released earlier this week, and it was the perfect color that I was waiting for.  It’s kind of a pink coral color, perfect for spring and summer.  My favorite thing about this bag is that it is three bags in one – a backpack, crossbody, and satchel.  The beige straps can unhook and move around to create different ways to carry this purse.  I have a few trips planned this spring and summer, and this bag is going to be so perfect for travel or just running errands on weekends.

I also recently added a couple closet staples to my wardrobe.  One is these new distressed skinny jeans.  I like that they have minimal distressing and that the holes are backlined.  Best part of these – the price tag! These babies come in at only $88!  I did have to size down.  I originally ordered my regular jean size, but after about an hour I knew I had to go down a size.   I often will wear a new brand of jeans for about an hour around my house with tags on to see how they stretch.  This was actually something a salesperson recommended to me once.  I don’t do anything major just move around enough to see if they will stretch or not.

My other addition is this black top.  I know nothing super special, but a black top like this is so versatile.  I currently own one with a dolman/batwing sleeve and wear it all the time.  The sleeve prevents me from being able to layer really well with it though which is why I wanted a new one.  The 3/4 length sleeve and thin material makes it wearable year round.  It comes in a few other color and print options too.  I also just saw that a few of them are on sale for 40% off.  I’m hoping the white goes on sale soon too.  I mean it’s a closet staple. I should have it in multiple colors right?!?! Haha.  Hope ya’ll have a great rest of your day and thanks for stopping by!
