Throw It All Together

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.  :)

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

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

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!

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!

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!

Kileen said... [Reply]

in an area where there's quite a bit of modern architecture!

I love the bold colors! This would be a perfect color brigade outfit! You represent well.  

Bre Clifford said... [Reply]

 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,

I love your bag!! I think it goes nicely with the outfit - not matchy-matchy, but it goes together!

Tara said... [Reply]

This is such a simple but adorable outfit...love!

Mimi said... [Reply]

 I love that its not matchy with the outfit bc like you said, it really makes the bag stand out! Very cute, I love Rebecca Minkoff. Oh and I cant believe you are taking scuba lessons! I'm so excited for you...how much fun!

Michelle said... [Reply]

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.  

Vanessa said... [Reply]

The top is great on you. the scuba sessions sound like fun. Try and get some sleep. Five hours is never enough.

I think the purse absolutely goes with the outfit! There's a bit of purple in your top and it matches the purple in the bag :D

Kileen said... [Reply]

Picaboothat expires soon so I'll probably use
that for the wedding, but maybe
blurb.com can be used for the honeymoon! thank you so much!
