I actually just bought the Palermo Tote this past weekend. It’s really light (which I love) and plenty large enough for my laptop and all the things I need for work. It has a soft bottom so the shape will be more flexible when full of all my “junk” than a bag with a reinforced bottom, but it was also a great price for great quality. I really like that it’s not heavy even before I fill it up!
Just about anything from the Cole Haan lines are a great investment if you need something new, and the Flash Sale is a nice way to make a wonderful investment more affordable. Stop by and check it out if it strikes your fancy! Use code EXTRA40
I rarely say this living in downtown Chicago not far from Lake Michigan, but we’ve had several days recently of pretty solid heat. Summer has arrived!
It’s not heat like those of you in the South experience. It’s warm enough though that I’ve been determined to stick to simple dresses made of light fabric to beat the heat.
To up the ante on the outfit, I included a small pop of color with a little belt. It gives the outfit just a touch of added finish (without, of course, packing any heat – the temperature kind, not the explosive kind, by the way).
If you’re a fan of simple black and white looks, check out a few from the archives like my houndstooth dress with a bit of red trim, my refashioned black and white striped dress, or the time I took inspiration from little girls and wore sparkles with my argyle dress.
Don’t forget to share what you’re wearing this week to the office!
