The classic ivory is making a comeback. I personal love wearing ivory in the winter. The shade is not as harsh as white but still keeps the look fresh and not out of place. When wearing neutrals from head to toe, I tend to look for pieces that have interesting elements. I picked up this top last month and thought it adds some flair to a rather plain outfit. These pictures were taken last week when the temperature was somewhat mild. We're suffering the Midwest's polar vortex once again this week. Just the thought of going outside makes me shiver =)
What I am wearing:
Top: Express embroidered lace tee - size XS
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla
Tote: Everlane the classic tote c/o
A quick review on this Everlane classic tote - I stopped carrying my work laptop home with me since Madelyn was born. I typically don't do anything work-related when I get home. Between Courtney's school bag, my work bag, Madelyn's diaper bag, the last thing I want to carry in the morning is another work bag. On rare occasions when I need to take my laptop home, this tote is the perfect solution. It weights next to nothing but is extremely durable. It fits my work laptop with room to spare (13.5" H, 3" W and 17" L). The tote has an inside pocket which is handy to store your essentials. It also has a snap button closure to keep your belongings secured. Made in USA.
I definitely like the comfort and feel of the genuine leather straps on my shoulders. This tote can be folded when not in use for easy storage (which is also great for traveling). All in all, the classic tote is perfect for anyone on the go. I use it for work, on the weekend as my diaper bag and also as my workout bag. It is truly the perfect minimalist tote. The charcoal is currently sold out online but the burgundy, black, maple, denim and military are still available if you're interested.
