Wow, I have been acclimating to something new...it's called cold weather and rain. Who would have thought in Texas? I almost forgot how to layer my clothes or put any warm outfits together. It didn't take long to get back in the saddle though. I have been having so much fun this week pulling out jackets, scarves, riding boots and sweaters. Finally! Oh, the little things that make me happy, as shallow as that may sound.
I picked up this stripe sweater and camel tote during the Forever 21 20% off sale. I almost wish I would have gotten a smaller size in the sweater. So, if you want to grab one for yourself, consider going down a size.
I also want to talk about this bag. If you have been reading for a while, you know that I have had some pretty good luck with purchasing items from Forever 21. I understand that some of you would rather spend extra on a few "quality" bags and keep them for years. I am the complete opposite. I only own a few higher end bags, none of which cost more than $200. I would rather have options and buy five items for the price of one. Plus, I am a chameleon when it comes to my personal style and tend to like and want different things each season and year.
I have always been super happy with the bags (and most everything else) that I have spent money on at Forever 21. You may beg to differ and think it's all fast fashion, but if you stay consistent about getting on their website you will be surprised at what you can find at great price points. I am by no means saying that the leather is real or the quality compares to higher end bags, but this one that I just grabbed is my new go-to. The proof is in my recent Instagram posts. Plan on seeing plenty more of it.
