     It is taking all of my restraint not to make a "on Wednesdays, we wear pink" joke (not the least of which because it is Monday). I've had a bit of a posting hiatus, but hopefully will be getting back into a rhythm soon (I mean not like the sartorial world has just ground to a halt without my astute observations, but whatever, blogging makes me happy). I think about my outfits, take the photos, and write the posts in order to capture the creativity that my clothes allow me to convey. Also, I love talking about clothes and outfits more than most people I know want to hear me do so, so I write those thoughts down here, instead. 

This outfit was really just a gravitation toward the color of the top. I've had it for a while (I believe since 2013), and it is a Nordstrom house brand, called Nordstrom Collection. It has held up very well though, and the silk is still as vibrant as ever. The pink bag was an obvious choice to pair with the blouse, even though it is sort of large for simply running errands. It is Baggu Basic Tote, which I bought last year at their SF Sample Sale. While, I like the color, and the leather is nice and soft, I do wish it had a snap or button or zipper on top. Why do people make open-top totes, is no one worried about theft or dropping things if the bag tips over? I feel the same way about it that I do towards pants with fake front pockets - put functionality into my clothing!

For some reason, I feel like my ponytail should be longer.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the pink and pink combo.

    I don't mind open totes for the most part (mostly just work, where it sits on my desk all day anyway). What I don't get, though, is how some people are able to use open totes (like the Cuyana one or, say, a Goyard St. Louis) as one of their airplane carry-ons! I always shove both my backpack and my zipped-up Longchamp under the seat in front of me on every flight, and I wouldn't be able to do that with an open tote.

    1. Agree! Also it seems like it makes it more likely to lose something in the security line, bin or no bin.
