The weather has been exhibiting such a split personality complex lately that it has made getting dressed appropriately quite challenging. Over a week ago, a simple outfit such as these Hudson jeans paired with a lightweight blouse and open-toe wedges was a perfect choice for the unusually warm fall heat wave we were experiencing. Most of us were praying that those pleasant days were an indication that maybe we were going to have a normal fall season and a mild winter. That fantasy bubble got popped this past weekend when the temperature drastically dropped into the 30’s and it now feels like winter! Brrrrr.... On the brighter side of things though, I’m thrilled to have finally found a crossbody bag that carries enough of my essentials for the day without me longing for my oversized bags that I tire of lugging around. What I especially love about this compact bag is the contrast of the tan pony hair (that I constantly pet) with the black vegan leather, the gold chain strap and the turnlock closure – making it a major eye-catching fashion statement. It sure has become my BFF this fall season.
