The Perfect Monogrammed Tote

We almost made it through the week! It has warmed up so much here in Pittsburgh, it feels like Spring! The warmer weather is making me crave patio happy hours and lightweight clothing. I love starting new seasons with a different handbag and I found the perfect one for Springtime! 

I'm always in search of a tote that is great for travel and everyday use. Not to mention one that you can use all year round. The Charlotte Handbag from Marleylilly checks off all these boxes! It's lined on the inside and comes in two colors. The best part is you can customize the thread color/monogram font. I chose to do the "octagonal" lettering because I loved the way it looked on the bag. You can actually see what each font will look like before you purchase! Just click the personalize button, type in your initials and choose which font you want to see. 

I styled this bag a couple different ways. First, with a fun graphic tee and pink shag cardi. The neutral color means you can really pair it with anything! I've gotten so many compliments on the chain detail as well. 

I also paired it with a chunky sweater, a leopard fur jacket and some oversized sunnies! I've been using it for work these past couple weeks, and it fits my planner perfectly. I love that you don't have to fish around to find something. It's not too big or too small. It also has a snap closure across the top and a zip pocket inside. 

I'll definitely be getting a ton of use out of this bag! It's on sale for less than $45 right now, which includes personalization. With Valentine's Day next week it would also make the perfect gift!

Hope you guys have a good Friday tomorrow! 

Thank you Marleylilly for the opportunity to collaborate! All opinions are my own. 

Valentine's Day Goodies

I've picked out some of my favorite goodies for Valentines Day! Whether you need ideas to give to your man OR if you just want some fun ideas for yourself! You can shop directly by clicking on the items in the photo or through the links below!

Eve Hoop Earrings: I love the blush color and I'm all about a good statement. These are on sale for less than $20!

Smooch Clutch: TOO CUTE for words! I mean how can you not grab this for the 14th?!

Rainbow Ring: I just ordered this last week because I tried on my Blogger Bestie Jen's! It is perfect for everyday wear, and it brings just enough color to any outfit.

Dainty Necklace: I am all about cute dainty jewelry! I love the bold red, and I've linked a similar one on my photo!

Blush Mid Top Sneaker: I am dying for a pair of these. They would transition so nicely into spring!

Basics Pallete: All of the perfect colors for your everyday eye shadow! I actually bought myself a Naked pallete for Valentine's a few years ago and I still use it!

Drinks Well with Others - Valentine's Day Edition!

I am a BIG theme person! Give me a theme and I'm the first person to go all out. So with Valentine's Day coming up you know I'm all about the pink, red and hearts. 

The January Monobox from  I Love Jewelry includes the cutest pieces that are so fun for Feb 14th! And you only have a few days left to order it! The first item in the box is a heart sweatshirt that comes with your monogram in red script. I am wearing a size Large so it would be a little oversized. You also get a heart cup (which is perfect for wine I might add) and a heart shaped choker. I'm actually currently drinking out of mine while watching The Bachelor! (ps. who are your favs?!)

The Monobox is only $21.95/month and you get the best goodies! You can also add on the Swag Bag which is $10 and you get the adorable candy heart pj pants that I'm wearing in the top picture. They are super soft and have your monogram in white script. I've been living in them the past few days!

I get so excited to see what will come in my Monobox each month and the best part is the personalization. You definitely need to check it out! 

Wishing you the best week! 

New Year, Less Clutter!

I hope everyone survived the holidays! I know for me this is definitely still such a busy time at work and just getting back into the swing of things. We started the year off with our closet breaking which forced me to clear it out and go through each item! So, not entirely a bad thing, but definitely not ideal.

I've been watching You Tube decluttering videos to get me in the decluttering mood. It's so hard to get motivated to deep clean like this though. Anyone else get super overwhelmed?! I've learned to just take it section by section in order to make it all manageable. The KonMari method says you should hold each item and ask yourself, 1. Does this bring me joy? 2. Would I purchase this again if I was at the store? I'm so thankful that my parents and sister came yesterday to help tackle this project! I have some other little spaces I need to go through this week like my bar cart and the coat closet.

One of the best parts about a closet clean out is finding items you didn't even remember you had! For me, one of them was this hot pink turtleneck sweater. I actually bought this back in the fall and never wore it that much. It's originally from Express, but I found it at Gabe's for a fraction of the price! I was inspired by my friend Jen (@chicandcheaplifestyles) who loves Gabe's. I definitely need to go back soon just to see what other finds they may have. I paired it with a multicolored clutch, another sale find from Nordstrom Rack! Also my hoops are on sale for only $14!

Pink Sweater (similar) / Clutch (similar) / Earrings- Only $14 

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday! I'm currently watching The Bachelor! Who are your favs?!
