The Mini Bag

winter outfit_mini pink bag

I have been loving the look of mini bags and was lucky enough to use some credit towards this gorgeous, bright pink mini Michael Kors bag from ShopBop. I thought it would be a little bigger, but it ended up being just the right size for my phone, cards and cash – the only things I like to drag around with me on the weekends. Also – I apologize for all the lint on my coat – with a very fluffy dog, it can be almost impossible to keep my  black items lint free, but then again I also didn’t put in much effort to keep it lint free!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend – my weekend was both fun and relaxing – and surprisingly productive. I think the winter can really tend to put me in a slump where all I want to do is sit around and cuddle up in a blanket. I found that if I just start doing something as soon as I wake up on the weekends – it leads to more productivity and less hours of Netflix (although I did spend a good five hours watching Netflix on Saturday night – getting caught up on House of Cards)!

I wore this outfit on Saturday to go get my hair done (it was SO in need of a touch up – my roots were getting ridiculous). After I got home, I added the fedora and went to dinner with my boyfriend. I know colored jeans aren’t really “in” anymore – but I still love this coral pair from Zara and think it is a fun combination with my leopard print scarf (which I’ve worn with this fedora before). The sunshine was beautiful this weekend – but don’t be fooled. Still cold, and I’m definitely over winter. Luckily I will be in Miami in two weeks soaking up all the sun I can!

By the way – just wanted to let you know that next week is going to be super fun week on Rachel’s Lookbook. I will be hosting a bunch of brands on here for “Lucky Week” – a celebration of one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day, favorite brands and giving my readers a chance to win some amazing products! Stay tuned for more details – it is going to be exciting!
