I'm all about being a minimalist. Less is more, right? And in the case of jewelry, I think that's often true. But sometimes, I like to make a statement. How do you do that as a minimalist? By finding a dramatic piece of minimalist jewelry, like this $25 ring from COS found here.
Anyone who knows me knows that I can't seem to own enough bags. I have a thing for them, obviously. This pretty (in) pink Gathered Suede Shoulder Bag from COS is a beauty, and at $125, it won't break the bank. Style tip: Pink is a fabulous neutral. Find it here.
After spending a little over two weeks in Europe, I discovered that a necessary item to bring is a stylish backpack or cross body bag. I had both...and neither. I had a backpack that wasn't all that stylish, and a cross body bag that was equally unstylish. I used the backpack to lug my stuff onto the airplane, and then used the cross body bag when traipsing around Paris. It was a functional approach, but I could have saved some time and luggage space if I'd had one all-purpose bag. And this one from COS might have just been the kind of bag that could have taken care of all my needs. Grey, suede, big enough for a water bottle and iPad, and small enough to still be "cool,” my eye is on this backpack for my next adventure.
