Sunday, May 29, 2016 / Vlog Post Notes

Wearing both a top and bottom in the same color is a great way to elongate the body. Since I didn’t want to break up that continuous line of white, I decided to choose pastel accessories and cardigan.

Speaking of accessories, my clutch is new. It’s the Stella Fold-Over Clutch by GigGi New York. This is a first for me, carrying a clutch with a casual outfit during the day. Usually clutches are two small to hold all that I want to take with me; plus, since they have no handle, only one hand is left free. Neither is an issue with this bag, because it comes with a matching leather crossbody strap should I need it, and it’s oversized, so I can carry most everything I want. I also like that it’s pebble leather, which generally is more durable. And, of course, there is the whimsical, large tassel.

What I fell in love with most, though, is the color of azure blue. It’s so pretty–especially when paired with pastel pink.

P.S.  Oops! Once again I accidentally walked out the door with two noticeably monogrammed accessories–a necklace and a clutch. I would have left off the necklace if I’d been paying closer to attention while getting dressed. It’s a bit large for the earrings anyway!
