Feelin' Neutral & Burberry Smoked Check Satchel

Pin It
Even though I have been wearing and enjoying brights lately, I am still a neutral girl at heart. My closet is dominated by beige, white and grey. I feel more comfortable wearing neutral colors than I do bold colors. When Simply Audrey asked me to pick out a courtesy item, I was immediately drawn to this cascading ruffles tank. The owner of Simply Audrey kindly offered a free shipping code for you ladies.

A ruffled top is a staple in every girl's closet. I can't tell you how many ruffled shells I have. It’s just so easy to wear. Layer it under a cardigan/blazer for work or pair with shorts for the weekend. This outfit is a combination of multiple neutrals. One advantage of wearing all neutrals is that you don’t have to worry about the color combinations. Neutral pieces match with all colors and they go with anything.

Even though I love my Chanel to pieces, it’s not practical for me to carry her every day. I’ve been on the lookout for my next daily handbag for quite awhile now. I am super excited to introduce to you my latest addition – the Burberry satchel in smoked check. I am not really a fan of Burberry's nova check logo. However, I love the understated pattern of this bag. I like how classic it looks. I can certainly carry this bag year round. The size is just perfect for me. There is more than enough room for all of my essentials. So yes, I love it! I told myself that I'm done buying handbags - well, at least for this year =)

What I am wearing:
Skirt: H&M - size 2 (buy similar here or here)
Shell: Ruffles tank c/o Simply Audrey  - size S (buy here)
Cardigan: Gap - size XS (buy similar here or here)
Sunnies: Ann Taylor (buy similar here or here)
Shoes: Gucci - size 37 (buy here in tan/black)
Bag: Burberry smoked check satchel (buy here in check print)

Happy Friday!



The tank is really adorable and looks great on you! You picked a great every day bag will go with so much!


Happy Friday Sydney!

Love the ruffled tank - perfect in the summer breeze.


Love this look and I adore your new bag! You picked a winner, the ruffle blouse will go with everything!


Thanks for introducing me to a new brand! I like their price points! And a small fit you ok?

Love your new purse! Gorgeous color and pattern! Nice pairings!!


Im like that too.. Wear a lot of whites n black and black :) Love how the top sits so well on the skirt!


love the neutrals on you and i love that satchel. i think you'll get so much use out of it.
i'm not a big fan of black or bright colors, so neutral is safe bet for me and i wear something similar to work all the time!

Really Petite

I'm a huge fan of neutrals! I love everything about this outfit an congrats on the great bag:-)

easy petite looks

I think I'm very much a neutrals person, too. It's so much easier to get dressed every day! That is an adorable ruffle top, your colors definitely remind me of fall!


I really like the new bag.


@Michelle The fit is not perfect but doable. I think this tank runs a bit smaller than some of the items from her shop.

Such a pretty top Sydney! And the Small fits you well? That's awesome!


I love a good neutral outfit, too! I love ruffle-ly tops like this one. And I agree they're a great staple to any wardrobe. Love your shoes.


I love that ruffled blouse, so pretty!..(and such a great fit as well)!!


CUTE bag, Sydney! The brownish color goes well when you wear earth tones, and your black Chanel works for everything else. If I can only own two bags, those colors would be it. Enjoy yours!

I agree with you on the bag. I am not a big fan of Burberry's check logo either, but this pattern looks soooo classy! I LOVE it. Great find Sydney. And it looks gorgeous on you.
