Fall Purse Haul 2017

Technically fall is right around the corner, but to me it started September 1st, as it does every year in my book.  I’m one of those annoying people that breaks out the fall & Halloween decor early, start wearing boots and sweaters (even though it’s still 80 degrees outside) and naturally pumpkin spice everything.  OH and I can’t forget to mention FOOTBALL!!!! I can’t help it, I just LOVE this time of year.

I normally am not one to buy purses much anymore, (that was another story years ago) because I tend to carry small clutches now.  That being said, I decided to get some much needed new handbags since I purged my closet the other day and discarded several that were battered and tattered and what not.   So today I’m sharing with you some affordable styles I’m loving this year for fall (which you could carry these bags all year round, I just needed a good excuse for a purse post).

BACKPACKS ARE BACK!!  But did they actually go away?  I haven’t had a backpack handbag since I was probably in the 7th or 8th grade.  I remember it very well.  It was a black faux leather mini backpack with drawstrings.  I wonder whatever happened to it….ANYWAY….I’ve been noticing a lot more backpack style purses in stores and online recently and fell back in love with them.

The other day I was shopping with my sister and we both picked up this cute velvet floral backpack at the same time.  Great minds think alike!!  So what did we do?  Bought matching purses of course!!!

Winter 2015 Target Haul

It’s sweater weather time y’all and Target is having a huge sweater sale going on right now!!!  Below are pieces I recently picked up to add to my winter collection:


  • Mossimo Open Poncho- (exact here)
  • Mossimo Poncho Pullover- (exact here)
  • Merona Chenille Open Cardigan- (exact here berry purple).  Available Colors: BlackDrizzle Grey/BlackHeather GreyRio RoseSour Cream & Tea Cup Blue


  • Merona Tunic Sweater (Exact here).  Available Colors: BlackBronzeGreenHeather Blue, Heather GreyOatmeal Heather, & Purple.  


I love tunic sweaters.  They are super comfortable and easy to style.  Especially on those lazy days when you don’t want to put a lot of thought into an outfit.  Throw it on with leggings and boots and pair it with a chunky scarf or long pendant necklace and out the door you go.



  • Mossimo Flannel Plaid Shirts:

(Black & White exact here.)  (Merona Green & Black exact here.)  (Red/Blue plaid exact here.)


I’m really into flannel/plaid this year.  You can dress flannel up by adding a statement necklace (like this Morningtide Convertible Collar necklace pictured below.  Purchase here SKU # N230) and pair it with a black or leather pencil skirt and heels.  If you’d rather keep them more casual pair with skinny jeans or leggings and boots.


They make great layering pieces too.  Wear them under sweaters or over tank tops or graphic tee’s.   Hmmm….I think I just inspired myself to do a “how to wear flannel” post.  Be on the lookout!!


How cute is this vest?!  I have NOTHING like this in my closet so I thought it would be a great addition.  I think it will be a great layering piece for both dressy and casual outfits.

  • Mossimo Cropped Faux Fur Vest- (Exact here)


For a casual look add on top of a flannel shirt with jeans and pair with booties.

For a dressy look add-on top of a dressy button down or chambray shirt and pair with leather leggings and heels.  Can also be worn with a dress or skirt.

$7 Statement Necklace Haul Y’all!!!!!

I adore statement necklaces.  I have purchased several over the years but as you know they can add up quickly in price.   I was wandering aimlessly around Wal-Mart the other day (you know how that goes) looking for a few items and I stumbled across these beauties!  $7 for three statement necklaces!!  I immediately snatched up a few to add to my collection.   I mean why not, right!?  The combination possibilities with these are endless AND affordable.
