Vivacis + White: OOD 5.11.09

Despite it being gray & overcast out there again, and being pretty cold, I am fully committed to my Spring wardrobe now and refuse to go back to big sweaters and warm shoes until the Fall!  Thank goodness I have so many cotton cardigans...

Anyway, today I'm going to wear my new Steve Madden Vivacis that I ordered from endless on their $25 off $100 promo, paired with basic jeans and all white so I can easily add my Mother's Day present - Coach's Op Art Madison Sabrina in Lavender.  

It was a fun and relaxing weekend but today starts a busy week - and the busy several weeks of May and June - getting ready for all the end-of-school activities, recitals, parties, and planning and preparing for summer vacations.  Happy Monday!

(IRL my cami is diffferent - it is a J Crew pintuck-style in a cotton/silk blend from about a year ago.)

I love that you can cinch the sides down on this bag and carry as a satchel...

...or uncinch and carry as a roomier shoulder bag.  There are leather straps on the bottom that unsnap on one side to hold the shoulder strap neatly underneath when it isn't in use.


  1. Gorgeous bag! I love the fact you can convert it from satchel to shoulder bag. V. cool!

    It was warm in San Diego yesterday. My sister had a Mother's Day brunch by her pool. I hope it warms up in the north soon!!

  2. Still loving your bag! Great oufit. It's chilly here, too, so I pulled out the beechwood Michelle. It's "beech-y" or "beachy". Close enough for me, anyway.

  3. Jillle - brunch by the pool sounds so great... it's a hard time of year here weather-wise... I get sooooo tired of the gray! We will be hitting FL this year -hooray- but not till August...
    Heidi - I think I'm going to have to go for beechy over beachy for now too. I like how you look at it!

  4. Yay! You got your bag! Happy belated Mother's day!

    I love white on white like that too. Classic and fun to accessorize. I am committed to my spring summer clothes too. Thank goodness for layering!

  5. Love the purse in shoulder bag style:) cute outfit----yes, i agree---between now and June 23rd, lots of bday parties, a wedding, and school stuff to get done!!

  6. Agh...I love the cardi, top, jeans, shoes, look so cute!!!

  7. Love that bag. I've been eyeing the navy Ikat color/print. I so don't need it though. :( At least I'm trying to convince myself of that. You look cute as always!

  8. Thanks so much y'all!
    Julie - that Ikat print is cute! The Sabrina is just such a perfect satchel!
