Shades of Blue & a New Bag!

Hello, loves! How was everyone’s weekend? We had a great time at Sunset Beach with our college friends! It was so much fun to catch up, laugh a lot, and enjoy each other’s company for the weekend! I feel like I need a few days to recover though haha. Unfortunately, this is a short week for me and I have a lot to do before I fly to Dallas, TX for the annual rewardStyle conference on Thursday.

I am so excited to share today’s post with you all! This past fall I launched the GiGi New York Mini Taylor tote in a new color. Today I’m launching a brand new style with GiGi New York, the Grace Satchel. If you’ve been reading Life With Emily for a while then you know that GiGi New York is one of my favorite handbag designers. Their customer service can’t be beat, their quality is impeccable, and the bags are timeless. The added personalization is always a great bonus, too!

I was absolutely thrilled when they asked me to launch their new Grace satchel! As soon as I got this bag in the mail I was immediately in love! This bag had my name written allll over it! It reminded me a little bit of the Gates Satchel (styled here) but on a smaller scale and a bit more personality, with the added tassel!
