The Practical Bag Every Girl Should Own


I used to be an "oversized" handbag gal to the core. My purse fit everything I could possibly imagine within its expansive pockets, though I only used a third of the space. On a recent trip to NYC I knew I would need a more practical option to get me through the hustle and bustle of the city. Once I purchased a crossbody from Target, I never looked back. It's comfortable, lightweight and perfect for being on the go. I love being hands free! It allows me to easily get through the day without lugging my big statement bag around. Although, those definitely have their place too! Here are 6 crossbody purses that are all under $40 and all from Target:

Crossbody purses are not just practical, they are ultra stylish. A bright coral bag can be just the pop of color that your outfit needs to really shine!


Hope you enjoyed this post and find the bag of your dreams!

Happy Shopping,

Styling 101: Weekend Picks


The Summer of long days by the poolside and being school free are coming to an end. Although we are trading our swimwear & fashion forward days for uniforms [some of us business attire] we MUST not give up on our weekends. In other words ladies, we cannot forget that we still have the weekends to dress in remembrance of our carefree days.

So without further ado, we now deem every weekend a reTREAT! Here are two of our favorite -completely different- picks to get your weekend started!

First up is the infamous nautical themed look. We chose to play with the contrasting shades of blue, the lighter hue to brighten the look, and the darker blue to be the root color of the outfit. Add simple studs and fabulous sunnies to complete the head-to-toe style.

 For the second look, we are taking it to the streets (or the mall, dinner, really wherever you like). The tank dress is casual, but the pop of yellow in the sandals and the matching crossbody adds pizzazz! Did we forget to mention this eye-catching China Glaze polish in Caribbean Temptation?!

Have a great weekend. Be sure to TREAT yourself!
