The Cutest Purse Ever?

by Heather

Is this the cutest purse ever?
Not the most elegant or the prettiest...the cutest.
I was in the Coach store at Scottsdale Fashion Square
and this little grey and yellow Willis purse caught my eye.
There was just something about it...fresh and clean...happy...perky, perhaps.
It needed to come home with me.

And talk about a classic style; 
I still have two vintage Coach Willis purses from the late 70s. 
Will this one stand the test of time as well?

And look, it matches the new yellow and white striped Loft cardi that was already in my closet.
Target grey roll-up pants
 Temps are expected to reach 100 today but a cardi is still needed if one is going out. Air-conditioning in restaurants and shops can make it feel downright chilly at times.
Kenneth Cole silver and yellow necklace; Loft eyelet peplum top
 I've had the white eyelet peplum top in my closet for several weeks but this is its first time out.
I'm thinking it will get a lot of wear this summer.
The Loft and Ann Taylor have been having 40% off  everything in their stores recently and I've taken advantage of that to add a few things to the summer wardrobe.

For all of you educators out there (if you didn't already know):
Both Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft, as well as J Crew and Banana Republic,
offer a 15% discount to teachers.
Isn't that nice of them?!
 My impulse purchase last year of those Target grey and yellow wedges has paid off.
At the time I wasn't sure how much wear they'd get, but they seem to be matching up to
a lot of outfits this year.
And I'm sure this purse will get a lot of action, too. 
I'm ready to pair it with two sweaters from past posts. Remember these two sweaters?
 Ann Taylor scarf

I'm going to have some fun figuring out what else will look good with this purse. Any ideas?

What's your latest happy "find"?

Have a sunny, happy week!

Love,
Heather

  7. Wow! You sure are good at this! Love the purse and your pants, shoes, sweaters, etc.! What great colors. You are so tiny and you look so good in everything! I never keep my purses. I guess I should consider that. Things do come back around!

  8. Liz, you are too funny. Tiny and looking good in everything aren't phrasess that come to mind when I think of myself. You're good for my self-esteem -- and I thank you for that.

  9. I knew it was you, the minute I laid eyes on the picture, who else would find such a CUTE purse? I've been sharing your blog with my husband so he won't think I'm the only crazy woman out there that thinks of shopping as a hobby (lol).I simply love how you added those fun bracelets and your collection of scarves is amazing. I have afeeling that cute little purse will take you on many fun adventures.

    1. Oh, Trina. Too funny. Don't be getting me in trouble with your husband, too. Mine is bad enough although he's used to me dragging home clothing or accessories on a regular basis. His funniest remarks, though, are about home accessories. He keeps wondering how the storage boxes in the garage keep increasing in number.

  11. LOL...I thought the same thing as Trina, I knew exactly whose post it was just by looking at the photo and the caption!!!

    That peplum top is crazy good, I'm jealous of that. And DAMN girl you are tiny.

    To answer your question, I think that purse begs to be worn with denim as well as your "Matchy Matchy" versions. Hey....you should be the real Matchy Matchy!!! ;o)

    xo,

    1. Hi Alyssa,
      Love your comments! I've loved the title of your blog since the get-go; have always enjoyed the matchy-matchy look even when it isn't in "style." I'm definitely going to try the purse with denim. Thanks for the suggestion!

  14. Really a classic combination (anything with gray!) that we don't see often enough. Really sets a more cool-girl tone with brights that works well for us "more widely experienced" women.
    So pretty.

    1. Thanks, Jan. I like the "more widely experienced" descriptor instead of just saying "old"!
