Freshening Up Some Basics


In college I went thru a stage where I wore a headband almost every day. I had all types and colors. They were an easy way to keep my hair looking polished with minimal effort! I guess I burnt myself out on headbands because I haven't worn them much in the last few years, until now. 

On a recent shopping trip I found this headband at Anthropologie.  When I tried it on, two of my friends immediately complimented me on it so I had to take it home. I love how it adds interest to a simpler outfit. 

Let's talk about this purse! It is part of Tory Burch's fall line. I picked it up during the Nordstrom's sale as a fall preview. It is convertible and can be worn as a shoulder bag and as a crossbody. It is going to be on constant rotation this fall. It is the perfect size bag for times you don't want to carry a big purse!
