Something Old, Something New



Tank - Gap, Skirt - J Crew, Shoes - Shoemint, Sunnies - Forever 21, Bangle - Orelia via Asos, Necklaces - Envy, Simons, Bag - Marc Jacobs (via Simons)

About a week ago, I went on an impromptu trip to Ottawa and Quebec City. I met up with a friend who was driving back from out west in Ottawa, and we made our way back home to the east coat by stopping and visiting friends on the way. I think there's something special about a last minute trip - no anxiety, no planning. I loved winging it! I had only been to Ottawa once for work, so I got to see the city a little better this time. And on Canada Day!

I only bought one thing on my trip and it is the Marc Jacobs bag in this post. This little gem was reduced from $800 to $100! I love that it's a pop of color and quite unique. And I'm surprised at how versatile it is. I've worn it to work for the past few days and found it pretty much goes with anything! If you live nears a Simons, check out their designer bags section (if that's your thang). I saw a Phillip Lim 31 Hour Bag (this) for $400! It was quite a steal, but way out of my price range.

Happy mid-week slump! Anyone else feel like it's Friday?

  8. An impromptu road trip sounds amazing right about now! And to be in Ottawa on Canada Day... what an experience. I've been to so many capital cities but never the one in my own country, which I'm so embarrassed to admit; I really need to fix that soon! Although based on the deals it sounds like they had a Simon's, I'd be tempted to keep driving to Quebec City. I mean, an $800 bag for $100?! That's unheard of. And what a gorgeous little piece it is, too!
