Yes, you read that correct, backpacks are back! As you probably have seen in many stores, using a backpack instead of your handbag is becoming a new trend. I know. I know. You may not love it, but it is a hit for me. I picked up this fairly inexpensive backpack from Target recently for some traveling that is coming up soon. It will work great for traveling or strolling in the city. The upside is my “big kid” camera will be able to fit in the backpack and not weight down my shoulder like it does with a normal handbag. I did look around for a while before taking this plunge to purchase this beauty. Who says beauty in fashion can’t be inexpensive? By the way, I passed it up the first time I saw it at Target and it was on my mind for weeks. I went back to Target with my husband so of course I told him I had definitely slept on it for weeks and was ready to place it in my cart! Plus using a gift card I had was a bonus.
I must add, this sweater is so cozy and was perfect for our date night Saturday when temperatures were a bit warmer, no coat needed! And who can say no to the color? I am a bit in love with all things olive colored. But not olives! Okay, enough about that before I get off on my many tangents. 🙂
Try out a backpack you love for those days you are traveling, hanging out at a theme park, or just strolling in the city. You can kept it cute while also keeping it functional. Yes, this backpack will be on my packing list for our vacation next month to the Caribbean.

Happy start to the weekend friends! Its Friday! So glad the sun is deciding to stay out a bit more these days. You are probably wondering what all this white coat non sense is about? Lets face it, this as close as I will get to wearing a ‘white coat’. You know, in doc terms. Ha! Well, if you have been around the blog a while you know I love a good blazer for the office. Today was no exception, I needed something to bring light to this outfit since the dress and boots were dark. I am still not to sure how I feel about this combo, but all that matters is I rocked it thinking it looked pretty edgy. What do you guys think? Yay? Nay? By the way, olive green is one of my favorite colors to wear in the fall and winter months, but for some odd reason I do not have many pieces in my wardrobe.
Ladies, might I add that these boots are on sale for $30! Yes, a pair of black over the knee boots for $30, score! I absolutely love these boots. They are a bargain compared to the $500 plus pair of Stuart Weitzman we have all been drooling over. As for these new beauties, my sunglasses, I was so happy to find them this past weekend at TJMaxx. From the moment I saw Karen Walker’s awesome sunglasses I was in love, but could not cough up that kind of cash for sunglasses. Lets be real, over $200 a pair does not fit with my ‘real girl’ budget. Who is with me?? So these beauties will work just great and only cost $10! Awesome! Be sure to check back early next week to see another great deal I scored on a winter coat!
Have a great weekend!
