Not too long ago Scott and I went to a local mall one evening with the hope of just walking around, and not buying a thing. Well, all of that changed when Scott picked out this perfect jean, button-up shirt from the Gap sale rack and said he thought I should try it on. The outcome, Scott and I both loving the shirt, I ended up purchasing it and taking it home. Since Scott had picked it out I asked him what he would pair it with. He said my new rust/red pants and blue flats would go well with it. Well, since I couldn't find the blue flats I own, my fav sandals took there place and Scott's outfit was born.
Blouse: Gap; Bag: c/o Fabric & Handle; Pants: UO; Sandals: Saltwater Sandals
Having Scott pick out my clothes for the day was awesome. I not only felt great in my outfit, but loved knowing that Scott picked it out. All that was left for me to figure out was which purse to carry with it, so I decided to break one of those fashion rules, ya know, the no denim-on-denim rule, with my new tote from Fabric & Handle.
Fabric & Handle was founded in 2006 by Salinya Suthinarakorn. Her mission was to create well designed, useful and stylish bags. Her staffers work with a small team of tailors and leather workers in order to guarantee the quality of their handmade bags. They believe that besides good design, it's craftsmanship and attention to detail that make the difference (which I love). I have to say that I'm just smitten with my tote, and I love that you can adjust the length of the straps by just pulling them off, and re-snapping them in their new spot. I have a feeling this is going to be my carry-all summer bag.
I just love the bow detail on this top! I feel like it makes a masculine piece look very feminine (my very favorite combo).
Today I'm still healing up from my wisdom teeth surgery, but doing very well. I'm having another small procedure done on my feet today, and then Wednesday I'm getting my two stitches taken out of my mouth. By the end of this I'm going to be happy not to go to a doctors office for a bit (although, I do need to see an allergist this summer).
I'm hoping to make the best of today. I'm thinking either a breakfast or lunch date is in order, and maybe a movie as well.
What are you up to today? How do you feel about denim on denim outfits?
