here, there, and everywhere

July 25th, 2011

Sometimes there’s a trend that you can’t help but become a little obsessed with.  For me, this neutral python print is the bag for fall, and for months I’ve been dying to get my hands on one just like this. 

When Coach invited a group of bloggers to preview their Chelsea handbag collection, I fell in love with at least half the bags there.  But when I saw this one, I knew there was a giant gaping hole in my closet that this bag needed to fill.

One of the amazing things about great accessories is that they completely elevate the rest of your outfit.  This top is Calvin Klein via T.J. Maxx, and the skirt is Zara — neither was over $50, but pair them with this beautiful bag and some killer heels and you’ve got an outfit that’s going to seriously turn heads.

And… it’s that time of the summer when everyone suddenly realizes that Fashion Week is right around the corner!  Six weeks away, and I’m already starting to plan my outfits — and I’m thinking this might well be one of them! 

Gifted Coach Embossed Python bag, Calvin Klein top (from T.J. Maxx), Zara skirt, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Ben Amun lucite bracelet; Forever 21 earrings.

I used this hair tutorial that Keiko posted last week and love it!  Perfect for those days when I haven’t flatironed or curled my hair and still want it to look special.

    Katie, love the outfit.  So love coach and the fall collection.  My mom is there so often they shoe her great stuff before it is released and I am going to ask her to check this out for me!  Their new line with the “classic” coach clasp is gorgeous, too.  Nice update.
    And you hair looks sweet with the braid!
