Recently, I went to an event where I was introduced to local Chicago handbag brand, Holly & Tanager. Their bags are sleek and functional, as all good bags should be. The Italian leather is top notch too. My favorite part of the bag in this post is that it can be worn as either a cross body or a clutch – it’s two bags in one.

Their Companion Mini is the perfect lightweight bag to bring to festivals or on vacation. It’s big enough to hold all of your essentials. Yes, it does fit my iPhone 7+, wallet, and lip gloss. This little guy comes in tons of other colors too – personal favorites are Carmel (in this post) and Pink. I’m also eyeing their gorgeous backpack. It would be perfect for work.

I love wearing a lighter bag against a darker look to brighten it up. It adds contrast and makes your outfit look a little less perfect and a little more effortless if you know what I mean.

I’m loving this Parker blouse from Rent the Runway. The dark floral pattern feels fitting for the start of fall. You can still do a cold shoulder too – just add a leather jacket for night.

With a fresh mani, I feel ready to conquer the day. Anyone else?

This lip color is Captive by MAC. It’s one of my favorites for a bold shade that can be worn day or night.

Gap Girlfriend Jeans

Gap’s Girlfriend Jeans are my favorite ever. They’re the perfect rise and length to flatter my short legs. I own five pairs! I like how the studs on these ones dress them up a little. I wear them with flats or heels.
