Put It In Neutral


Have you ever stalked an item in a store because you wanted it, but didn't necessarily need it?  Well, this is what happened with these pants.  I really, really wanted them but didn't see the need to pay over $30 for a pair of taupe, zippered, elastic-waist pants.  Lol.  However, good things come to those who wait because they went on sale and along with my 35% off Facebook web-deal, I ended up paying a whopping $7 for these pants.  Now that's what I call a steal.  I decided to go low-key with the pants and wear a somewhat neutral palette because, honestly, I tried several different colors and/or patterned shirts and wasn't feeling any of the combos.  When all else fails, keep it simple, and accessorize.  As far as my handbag is concerned, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this Celine-inspired tote at Ross.  One thing I don't skimp on is a handbag but when I found this quality inspired by (knock-offs are a no-no) handbag, I had to have it.  This is another reason why I love Ross.  By the way, I saw a stylish young lady in Walmart today with the cognac version of my handbag.  She also found hers at Ross and while she wanted my black one, I was dying for her cognac color.  Us ladies are never satisfied.  Headed to Boston this weekend and looking forward to being inspired by Beantown's fashionistas.

  1. I have the same bag in green from Ross which I featured on my blog a few weeks ago. I would love it in black!

    1. OMG...I just saw the green version on your blog. I know my chances will be slim but i'm going to check out a few more Ross locations to see if I can locate the cognac or green version. Thanks.
