Must have Monday: Baggu Leather Tote

BAGGU leather tote

You know how sometimes you pass by a stranger wearing something so insanely perfect for YOU, you can’t help but stare? Living in New York City, where the average person dresses like the are walking on some invisible catwalk, this happens about a million times a day. More often than not the person is too far, the train is too crowded, etc for you to ask them where they got it from without coming off as a total “stranger danger”.

Recently I had an especially bad case of bag envy when I saw a girl on the train with the most buttery leather tote I’ve ever seen in my life. I couldn’t help but stare at the bag as it effortlessly added chicness and cool to this random girl’s life by it’s mere existence. I locked eyes (err umm “strap”?) with the bag the whole one stop till I had to get off and get to work. I wistfully thought about the bag on my walk and made a mental note to keep an eye out for something similar. Fast forward a few days later, I walked into Urban Outfitters and to my gleeful surprise I was tearfully reunited with this amazing beautiful bag.

It turns out this angelic bag is made by a company named “BAGGU“. I had never heard of it but according to Urban’s website it’s a “Brooklyn-based reusable bag company” that started in 2007 and specializes in making high-quality canvas and leather bags. The bags are also lead-free and ethically made, if you’re into that (and who wouldn’t be?)

After “visiting” this bag, three times last week, I’ve decided to go ahead and purchase it as a happy first of the month present to myself. And before you ask, yes, that is a thing… at least now it is ;)

Lusting like me? Check the bag in different colors below and click to purchase your favorite one.  You can also get this bag at Shopbop, Urban Outfitters, or the BAGGU site itself.

Must Have Monday: Cute Work out Wear

Must have Monday: Workout Wear

 

The count down to Spring (aka mid-drift baring season) has begun and those of us who’ve put on a little “winter weight” are slowly but surely starting to wake up from our hibernation. With only a few precious weeks left to prepare for the “Spring body debut”, I’ve been hitting the gym again and trying out a new diet (more on that later). As someone who is the furthest thing from a “gym bunny” I need all the help I can get to motivate myself to go to the gym. With that in mind, I’ve been eying new cute active wear, to make going to the gym slightly more enjoyable. Although typically I don’t wear a lot of pink for some reason when it comes to work out gear, I love everything bright pink or black (just like my running shoes).

Keep reading below to see my active wear picks (pictured clockwise from left) and why they’re on my “lust list”.

- A cheetah print bra tank and sports bra it’s definitely just the right pick me up for early morning workouts, which is why I’m loving these ones from Juicy Couture

- While the weather is still chilly, a light weight jacket is essential, such as this stylish pink windbreaker  from Yoox.com

- There’s nothing like the perfect pair of running shorts, a staple for everyone’s workout wardrobe. I love these classic dry fit ones from Nike.

- These bright pink yoga pants from Under Armor also caught my eye and almost made it into my shopping cart until I realized Birkram Yoga class not included

Must Have Monday: Midi Length

 

Every now and again we all get “hung up” on something we want and feverishly search for it until we find, buy, and subsequently forget about it a few months later. The “midi length” dress is that “it” for me right now. Wearing dresses that you can’t sneeze much less bend down in as been done to death, so I’m officially declaring the “midi” to be the new “mini” for nights on the town.

Must Have Monday: Jeffrey Campbell Solitaire Heels

 

If you follow me on instagram than you know that I recently received my new Jeffrey Campbell Solitaire pumps in the mail and I couldn’t be more excited.

These shoes are so goregous and so on trend right now that I absolutely had to have them. I ended up finding the perfect color combo online at Freepeople.com and can’t wait to start wearing them. These are the perfect neutral everyday shoes for spring and will instantly add style to any outfit. Want these shoes for yourself? Keep reading to find out where you can get a pair!

Must Have Monday

Rare Sequin Collar And Cuffs Shift Dress

Originally I planned on talking about my recent obsession with sequin in general for today’s “Must Have Monday” however I stumbled upon this little gem dress decided it was too special to share the spotlight and deserved its own dedicated post. It’s called the “Rare Sequin Collar And Cuffs Shift Dress” dress and it’s from Asos.com.  I really love this dress because it combines my love for chiffon and sequins and rolls it all into one big happy ball of pretty. I could so see myself rocking this on my birthday or for a fun New Year’s party in the city, there’s just one problem… the price. The dress cost $127 and although that’s not crazy expensive, it’s expensive enough that I can’t justify to myself spending that amount on a dress I’m probably only going to wear once. I would love to splurge and treat myself to this dress but since I’ve already “treated” myself several times since payday I think I’m going to just admire this love from afar (but if it goes on sale, all bets are off).

Comment below and let me know what you think of this dress, do you love it, would you spend $127 for it? Don’t forget to let me know what’s on your must have list this week?!
