Top:  LOFT Fields Spots Print - XSP / $21 (similar)
Pants: Forever 21 Pleated Peg Pants - XS (similar)
Purse: Rebecca Minkoff MAC Convertible Clutch via HauteLook - $179 (buy)
Watch: Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch - $127 (buy)
Earrings: Express Flat Hoop Earrings - free with gc
Shoes: Forever 21 Chic Leatherette Stilettos (old) - 5 / $15.80 (similar)

I really love this colorful LOFT top and my bold magenta Rebecca Minkoff convertible clutch.  So why not throw them together in an outfit right?  I was actually all ready and on my way out the door when all of a sudden I was stumped when picking out a purse at the last minute.  I didn't have much time to think it through, so I just decided to go with the closest one sticking out at me.  Even though the color may not really go with the outfit, I actually think that it makes the purse stand out on its own.  It's not perfect, but I really like it!

And these 4-hour long scuba sessions are really taking a toll on my stamina!  Tonight we had our first pool session and I took my first breath underwater!  It was an unbelievable experience, even in a boring little pool.  Now if only I could run effectively on 5 hours of sleep each night, then I'd be all set.  :)

  3. Great pants! They read a little 90's grunge but you made them so chic with your pairings! Nice!

  4. Aren't over the shoulder bags TOTALLY convenient? Enough to comfortably fit your essentials. Whoever said essentials fit into a clutch was lying!!

  5. Once again, your cuteness shines again.  But this time, this is a little boyish cute.  The pants are surely bold and boyish.  However, the pumps, top, and your hairstyle keeps everything girly and cute.  So it's a bit of both worlds to me.  Nice look!

  8. I saw that clutch at the last HauteLook sale (or was it Beyond the Rack?) but not the fun colour you have so I passed!

    I've always wanted to go scuba diving but I get migraines a lot and b/c of the glaucoma my dad has I always get my eye pressure monitored, so sadly I'm not sure if I would be able to do it!

  9. I can't get over how pretty a color your clutch is, really love it. Your outfit is lovely as always.

    Good luck with your scuba sessions. Let alone the scuba diving, I can't even swim. I miss out a lot especially those trips to gorgeous beaches in the south of Thailand,,duh!

  18.  Running effectively on only five hours of sleep a night would be fantastic! If you manage it I would patent it, ha ha. Congrats on your first underwater breath, that rocks. Speaking of cool things I love how your Minkoff looks with your cool blues. I also love your top.
    Cheers,

  26. Love the purse!

    I was thinking of you...I found a site called "blurb.com" which would be  agreat site to use if you were interested in making a special honeymoon memories book...or any kind of picture book. The pricing is so reasonable!  I am considering making a family picture album for my in-laws using the site.
