I've been looking for a black leather jacket for a while now. Ever since my vegan version bit the dust, I've been seeking out the perfect replacement. But I've run into a conundrum: they're not cheap. And most of them aren't as streamlined as I'd prefer. But this gorgeous option from Elk Accessories meets all my style must-haves. The price point is reasonable for a leather jacket ($310), it's unfussy, modern, and feminine. No buckles, zippers, or unnecessary details. Just pure and simple. Exactly what I'm looking for.
A girl can never have too many purses, right? That's my personal fashion philosophy. And so, I introduce to you three of my new must-haves, all by Baggu. These beauties are part of the spring '17 collection that Baggu just released last week and among my many favorites, these are three stand-outs.
The Petal Drawstring Purse is a perfect all-around piece. (I have it in the saddle color and I use it all the time.) But even though I already own a different color, I'm tempted to invest in this piece—the color is a beauty.

I'm a minimalist for the most part. I hate clutter and knick knacks. But when it comes to bags and purses, that's the one thing I enjoy collecting. You really can't have too many, right? (That's what I tell myself when the credit card gets swiped.)
Baggu has lately become my go-to bag line. With a modern practicality, streamlined design, and pretty artistry, this line never does wrong in my fashion book. And when it comes to the new spring '17 leather offerings, I've been wowed once again, especially by the new style the brand has introduced to its line: the Box Purse. One part tote bag and one part traditional purse, this new carryall is the perfect all-purpose bag.
Use it for a jaunt to the city when you want to look (and feel) chic, but you don't want to shoulder a boring backpack. Take it to a meeting, followed up by a coffee date with a girlfriend, and a jaunt to your favorite boutique. Fill it up with a notebook, water bottle, book, iPad, snacks, and lipstick.
My favorite of the four colors offered is the petal, seen in the first image.

If you're looking for some new baubles, Poketo has you covered. This innovative store in Los Angeles constantly wows me with their smart, original, modern offerings in jewelry, home decor, and more. What makes these beautiful earrings even prettier? They're affordable. The triple dots are $40 and the open circles are $32. While you're visiting the shop (online or in store) take some time to peruse everything else. You won't leave empty-handed.
My "go-to" item when I'm on a shopping spree is to find an innovative top—something with smart and creative details that sets it apart from all the other tops out there. Something like one of the three tops seen above.
These beauties from Need Supply have a burst of individuality and charm. Bell sleeves, scalloped hems, and a sweet tie at the waist make these pieces stand outs that will add a touch of artistry to your wardrobe.
