Fall-ing into Fall With GiGi New York

Around this time every year, I get really anxious for fall. Between mornings where it's 65 degrees  and the new fall clothing taunting me in my closet, I just get this overwhelming excitement for the season! 

This year I got a jump start on adding fall staples to my closet thanks to the #nSale. I added comfy wraps for layering, great basic sweaters, and a few pair of my favorite booties to ramp up my fall wardrobe. 

But perhaps one of my favorite additions to my fall wardrobe is this GiGi New York Mini Taylor tote  that I am launching today. As you all know, I am a huge fan of GiGi New York and have been for quite some time. I love their handbag styles, their color choices, the impeccable customer service, and of course the personalization. I was thrilled when I was asked to be part of their fall launch and introduce the Mini Taylor Tote in the new fall color, wine

I have the Mini Taylor Tote in black python and it has been one of my favorite bags. So of course I was excited to add the wine color to my GiGi collection. I love that even though it is a bold color, it is still very versatile and can be worn with a lot of colors. Head over to GiGiNewYork.com to see more from the launch!

The Best Weekender Bag

This summer for me has consisted of a lot of two and three day trips. Whether they were for business or for pleasure, the one thing I have come to appreciate is a good weekender style bag. While I own a few different styles of weekender bags, none seemed to fit everything, so I would always end up carrying multiple bags...which then defeated the purpose. 

Right before I headed to Charleston for the Southern Blog Society conference I got this Barrington Gifts Weekender Bag. Being able to customize it's color and print was what initially drew me to this bag, but after it arrived the quality and size continued to impress me. The leather handles and cross body strap are very sturdy and the bag can hold everything I need for overnight & weekend trips. If you have been on the edge, I highly suggest purchasing this bag. It will not disappoint!
