Today it's gloomy, cold, rainy. I had an outfit set to wear but I just didn't want to waste it on such a craptastic day. Instead I went with some really basic pieces in colors that would give a bit of cheer to this gray Monday. Also… wanted to wear my new shoes! This weekend I stopped in Marshalls purely to purchase some new bed pillows but the shoe department was so tempting I had to take a peek. These babies were on the clearance wall for only $30! They are Nine West and are uber comfortable. I was looking for a nude shoe for this spring and summer that had an accent color – I was hoping for black for versatility, but I think this bright coral is a nice choice, and will be a fun accent with all the brights in my wardrobe.
And how cute is this bag from Handbag Heaven? I love the mini satchel style – it's the perfect size to hold an iPad or netbook and it's vegan. While it has the flap closure, it also has a zipper closure, an inside zipper pocket and two inner pouch pockets for small items like phones. There's also a zipper pocket on the back to hold quick-access items like a SmarTrip card or lip balm. You can easily tuck in the adjustable strap to make it a handbag, or lengthen the strap and wear it as a crossbody. I was able to fit my wallet, umbrella, cosmetic bag, calendar, two smartphones, and even a paperback novel into this bag with room to spare!
