We’re headed to the Keys next week woohoo!  Granted, we are photographing TWO weddings while we’re there, but we’re also staying a few days before that at a pretty sweet resort and I’m excitedd.  We are going to try to sneak in some family photos so I was browsing around for a cute maxi dress and found this one.  Who’s ready for a frozen drink?

Organizing My Purse

So I like big purses… and up until now I’ve just had all of my random belongings thrown inside.  It gets pretty annoying having to take everything out piece-by-piece until I find what I’m looking for, say my lip gloss, a hair tie or sunglasses.  I decided action needed to be taken and planned to devise a system.  The solution?  Bags within bags.  Sounds easy enough right?

A wallet that can also be a wrislet is perfect for when you need to run into the post office, when you need money but not your entire purse.  I don’t care what anyone says, I love me some Vera Bradley — plenty of compartments, durable, colorful and easy to spot in a deep purse!  This wallet is big enough that I can zip up my keys and phone within it, making it like a little clutch.

Every woman’s purse has an assortment of cosmetics, hence the cosmetic pouch or bag.  I keep things like hand sanitizer, lotion, hair ties, lip gloss, etc. within it and it’s easy to pull it out when I need access to any of these items, because usually when you need a brush you’re gonna need some lip gloss!

Another little bag (thanks to the free gifts from Estee Lauder) contains office type materials… a case for business cards, little notepad and pen and a mini accordion book of some family photos.  I also stash a little ear bud set in there mainly in case Amelia wants to play a game on my phone and I don’t want to annoy everyone around me with Dora the Explorer music.

I also keep a little coupon case in my bag where I file receipts, gift cards or gift certificates and coupons.  If only I could remember to use coupons before they expire, I’d be really efficient.

So there you have it, bags within bags… simple, effective and organized!

Stella & Dot’s Fall 2013 line debuts today!  I always get excited to see the new pieces, and there are a few I can’t wait to wear!

haley

I’m a sucker for long necklaces, so naturally I love the Haley.  It’s neutral, so wearable with tons of stuff, and it also has the option to be worn short!

kahlo

This statement piece would be amaze over a long black dress but I could also see it worn under a plain button down and jeans.

Stella & Dot | Oasis Bib Necklace

I love a good bib necklace.  The colors are so unique and unexpected and make for a fresh piece.

others

This assortment of pieces piqued my interest when browsing through the new line. Not sure how often I’d wear the Peacock Earrings but I sure do love the colors and that you can convert them to studs.  The Twila Drops, Adelina Cuff, Eden Ring, Ivie Drops, Portia Bracelet and Isla Drops would all be great everyday accessories.

somervell

This ensemb is actually three necklaces – the Somervell, Christina & Mae.  Love the layered look.

trinity

The Trinity Pendant comes with TWO chains… wear it long, wear it short or wear BOTH… genius.

sutton

The Sutton Necklace is by far my favorite piece of the fall line.  You can wear it countless ways.  I’m obsessed with how you can remove strands, wear it different lengths, etc.  It gives you endless looks that are all cute.  Check out the video to see it in action.  I’ll instagram a pic of it when I get it next week!

So stop by my Stella & Dot site to take a look at the new stuff.  If you live close by and want to host a trunk show, you’re sure to get lots of free jewelry credits, and who wouldn’t love that?!
