Friday Favorites Fashion & Home Bits

{ Crossbody Bag | Mirrored Glass Top Accent Table | Turtleneck Stripe Dress | Green Bodysuit  | Over the Knee Boot | Diamond-Tufted Upholstered Bed }

I wasn’t able to do a Wednesday’s Wish List this week because I was in Las Vegas. So I’ve decided to post about a few items that caught my eye recently…my Friday Favorites.

I’ve been on the hunt for a larger crossbody bag in black for several months. I think this Rebecca Minkoff one is exactly what I’ve been looking for! When I run errands and/or I have my boys with me, I want to be hands-free. I’m sick of fussing with my bags as they constantly fall off my shoulder. The crossbody style is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, and when they look as chic as this one does… perfect.

I found this Mirrored Glass Top Accent Table on the Joss & Main site. Although their featured sales only last several days, they always have items like this and the tufted bed for sale (and at crazy affordable prices!). So that’s why I chose to include them here. This accent table would look great in between two sofas, next to a great chair, or even in a bedroom sitting corner – next to an accent chair or chaise lounge. I love the mirrored glass top because anything you put on top will showcase better because of the reflection. The bed is so pretty. My husband and I just bought this exact one for our guest room.

If you haven’t checked out the site SABO Skirt, you should. You can find such great outfits and sexy items for an amazingly affordable price! And this stripe dress is a perfect example. It’s a good transition piece to have in my wardrobe. If I travel to colder places this Fall or Winter, I can still wear this dress with tights, booties and a coat.

Ok…It’s not often that I find (or even look for) a good bodysuit. I remember wearing them when I was in jr. high. But when I found this drapey, wrapped v-neck bodysuit It made me (oddly) very happy. Obviously you can wear this in the warmer months with some cut-off shorts or a pretty skirt. But moving into the cooler months, I invasion myself wearing this layered with a cute chunky cardigan, a cool leather jacket and jeans.

These boots though. Need I say more?

Have a great weekend!

Major bag trend heading into Spring 2015: the Bucket Bag!

I’m so loving this style bag. As a mom of two little ones, I need to carry bigger handbags. The bucket bag is a little departure from my usual hobo or tote styles I tend to use.

Designers have amped up the look of the bucket this year. You’ll be seeing pops of color, fun prints, cutouts and beautiful leathers. I’ve got my eye on a few that I personally like and thought I’d share them with you.

For starters, Gigi New York just launched their Jenn Bucket Bag in new colors for Spring. I need it (not really. but who cares?), I want it! I love how pretty and classic it looks. The ‘Jenn’ bucket is made of embossed python, comes in array of beautiful shades + you’re able to personalize it with your initials if you like. I’m just a huge Gigi NY fan!

Others include this pink one. I love the pop of color (I just bought it in black though. I needed a black bag). And lastly, this pebbled leather one with a pull-through chain strap so you can wear it as a shoulder bag too.
