The Mini Bag

- Fashion, Outfits

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!

    Just keepin’ it real with the lint…I wouldn’t have even noticed! I’ve had a similar Kate Spade bag on my radar for awhile, but I wasn’t sure what exactly would fit in it! The color of this one gets me in the mood for spring 😉

    I LOVE the pop of pink with all the black. Also love the mini bag. Sometimes its nice just to have something to carry your phone and wallet instead of a huge bags which is what I normally have. So cute!

    I have been really wanting a mini bag too! I want black because I have an obvious obsession with black purses. lol. But I really love that pink color too! I know how you feel about the dog hair on clothes. I love wearing black and I have a white dog so I’m constantly using a lint roller. I made the mistake of wearing black to my dogs vet appointment and when I left, you couldn’t even see my black clothes because I was so covered in white hair. lol. The vet told me that maybe I should wear a different color next time I came in. Ha!

    Again, like your recent purple with sparkles outfit, the purse totally makes this! I just love the all black outfit but you definitely add a touch of chic with the purse and lipstick! Looking good, Rachel 🙂
