Wearing //
Express stretch bracelet, still in stores
Zara kitten heels, similar here but a bit higher in heel height







When I saw this Rebecca Minkoff a couple of months ago, I waited for it to go on sale. As soon as it did, I jumped. It is gorgeous, you guys. Saffiano leather, a rich tan color, and durable features makes this RM a great investment. I plan on doing a formal review soon. I'm very happy with it, so that's all you really need to know for now.

Speaking of happiness, I met up with two of my favorite bloggers on Monday night. I can't even refer to them as that, more like I met with dear friends I hadn't seen in ages. We clicked right off the bat! I had met Gina before at a RewardStyle event, but it was my first time meeting Caryl. Both ladies are warm, down to earth, and as sweet as can be. Not to mention their fun senses of humor! Husbands came along as well, and they hit it off too. Can I just say, it is so amazing to meet people that exceed your expectations. I often wonder what bloggers are like in "real" life. I try to be as authentic as possible through my writing and my photos, but there is so much we really don't know about one another on the internet. Monday night confirmed that there are genuinely great people who are a part of this community, and I hope to have get togethers more often!

  2. Love the new bag! I have worn so much cranberry/maroon/burgundy this year. Such a great color. How fun that you all got together and even let your husbands come! I just love that!

    1. We joked that the husbands were more into talking than we were! Not true of course but we were so happy they also hit it off :)

  3. Your new bag is totally gorgeous and what a great neutral! I'm sure it will get plenty of use year round. I don't own any designer bags but if I do get one at some point I think it will be Rebecca Minkoff. Her style just speaks to me. Love your outfit here and love that we were on the same page with these. :) Your last outfit with the b/w cardigan, leggings and cognac boots was one that really pushed me to believe that a cardigan/wrap/cover up thing can look chic and not frumpy. And I loved reading your review of our meetup. :) I felt exactly the same way. You two are just as you seem on your blogs and it felt like meeting up with friends I've known forever. Here's to our new annual (if not more often!) tradition!

    1. I definitely see an RM in your future Gina! I do think her style matches up with yours. I am a fan of this one in particular because it's roomy, but not too big. It also fits on my shoulders! Can't wait to review it next week. Happy Friday :) hope you had a lovely day yesterday!

  6. The cranberry is gorgeous on you! And I used to be standoffish with RM bags, but now that I have 3, I think I have a newfound appreciation of them! Yours is gorgeous!
    And the feeling is mutual! 100000 percent mutual! I'm so glad we were all able to meet and you absolutely are in real life as you come across with your blog! Have fun tonight!! Wish we were there, too!
