|1, 2, 3 Chic!|
I love shoes, I love clothes, and I love bags! One of my favorite type of bag is one that is convertible; depending on how I'm feeling, how I'm dressing or where I'm going, a convertible bag can play to one of my many moods and is a lot of fun, like this cross-body bag which I can attach to the upper loops for a longer purse, or the side loops (as shown left) for a fold-over cross-body bag. Truth be known, I rarely wear a cross-body bag, and instead prefer a daytime clutch. So instead of wearing this convertible purse as the cross-body as it was originally designed, I kept it folded and carried it as a clutch. I could have removed the long strap (as I usually do when carrying a bag which is convertible like this), but decided to keep it with the bag should my morning walk through the park turn into a quick spot of shopping!
How I Styled It?
1, 2, 3 Styling with a patterned coat is so easy when you use the colors that are already present in the plaid, such as the brown, taupe and off-white that are in this coat. The brown pant and taupe jacket blend well because the color taupe is a mixture of brown and grey. I love how the jacket serves as the 'blouse' when the jacket is zipped and tied, 'peeking' out from under the cropped sleeves of the jacket. I went with the fuchsia shoes to brighten up this otherwise neutral ensemble. SN
