Another rainy day calls for a bright orange bag. I got this leather slouchy hobo from Latico at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the moment. It offers that pop of color when you want to wear blue or other neutrals – although I don’t ever wear it with just black. It was perfect today with my favorite Calvin Klein blouse and black and white checked pants. Yes, i wore two patterns and a bright orange bag today. And it was amazing.
Well, she did it! Our girl graduated from Bowling Green State University, and in her honor I carried this orange – and i do mean ORANGE Latico slouchy tote. I got this one at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the season. Like i always say – if you love a color, or marginally like it, get it while the getting is good. I looked for months before i found an orange i could tolerate at a good price. Latico bags are saturated with color, with the most supple, soft, scrunchy leather. It does have black hole qualities, but that’s ok. It’s a looker.
After the Flying Pig 5K, i thought THERE’S NO WAY I’M LEAVING THE HOUSE. Whoops forgot about a friend’s show. Calvin Klein to the rescue, in this soft, buttery, chartreuse leather with khaki leather trim. I got this at Clothes Mentor for IDK around $14 or so. Ok, so the strap is coming loose and it has some scuffs. So what! The color makes it fabulous, especially with neutrals. WINNER
I’ll get caught up yet!
