My seven year old had her work in an art show this weekend. She was part of a small group of young artists from our local community. I was over-the-moon proud and thrilled about it. She was most excited about the snack table.
I found this Seamingly Maxi knock-off at Ross for $11.99. It’s jersey, unlined and all-around not as substantial as the Anthro version, but with a little bit of tlc, I’ll get a season’s worth of wear and that’s alright with me.
Necklace: LC for Kohl’s
Bag: Dooney & Bourke Florentine Satchel
I popped into Payless for a few minutes last week and found these great leopard wedges. Dexter is new brand for me, but I’m impressed so far. I wore these wedges for my kids’ joint birthday party over the weekend with no problems (with this top and these bottoms).
They’re on sale now too!
After a year of hard use, I upgraded my beloved Melie Bianco Maurissa satchel. It is well known among bag fans that the Maurissa is “inspired by” the Mulberry Alexa. Pretty sure the Alexa was part of the long-term satchel plan, but I just lost interest along the way and started searching for a less pricey alternative.
Here it is - Dooney & Bourke Florentine Small Satchel. It looks a lot less like the Alexa than the Maurissa, but that makes it fresher and more interesting for me. It’s beautiful thick leather, is well-built and has a digestible sticker price. Plus, it’s an early birthday present, so the guilt factor is negligible.

Long hair is easier for me to manage because of its thickness and wavy texture, but this Katie Holmes style has got me thinking about chopping the locks.
This maxi may look bright and a bit over the top, but I felt happy in it. Vibrant colors do a good job of bringing joy. The synthetic fabric feels natural and it has a soft lining to keep warm. I wore it the very next day to the local park with flip-flops. This works dressed up or dressed down.
p.s. it’s under $40 in store
