How to Accessorize | Stripes & Brights

Stripes & Brights
There are 2 brands that I’m in love with right now in this outfit post. Let me start with the most obvious (and bright), my day glow yellow leather satchel, courtesy of the Leather Satchel Co in London. A timeless classic shape but in a totally nontraditional color. I picked the day glow yellow (of course I went vividly bright) but there is of course a rainbow of colors of this bag – and don’t worry I’ll do a full review once their Amazon.com store in the US is up and running. I decided not to build outfits around the neon but to see how well I could incorporate the neon into my already existing wardrobe. I think it settles right in and I plan on doing some contrasting with bright blues and even wearing neon with neon!

The second brand I love is Lands’ End Canvas – I mentioned them the other day. I picked up this Heritage Boatneck Sailor tee in navy and ivory along with a cardigan the other week to replace 2 pieces I wore to death. Quick shipping, there always seems to be a sale on what I already consider a great price, the fit is great AND I came home yesterday to a handwritten thank you note from their Customer Service team. That was the cherry on top of my sundae (and I do love those cherries on top of sundaes). I’ll definitely be purchasing more items from their site and soon! I’m also quite in love with my Target sandals and got lots of compliments on them on the street. They’re super comfy and a great price! It’s a simple outfit but probably one of my favorites this week.

  1. I LOVE that bag, so great and the color amazing!

    I have that same top, such a classic and well made. You know I heart Lands End Canvas, they really know how to make quality classic pieces and their customer service can’t be beat!

    • @Allie you and a couple of other bloggers made me go to Lands’ End Canvas, I love it! And I needed a new striped shirt, so this one was a winner.

  2. You defiantly master the art of accessories. The yellow bag with the red chain necklace complements the subtle colors of the clothing.

  3. I’ve been eyeing that bag for a few weeks now. It’s amazing! I’m still debating if I want yellow or green. ASOS has some great exclusive ones (by the same brand) as well…there’s a two-tone one I’m lusting after.

    You know Kate Spade also has something similar, although I’m sure the price tag is much more expensive.

  4. OK so what size is your bag in this picture? I got an email from the company & they are offering a GOOD DEAL on price & shipping.
