Maxi Dress From Day To Night

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this pregnancy it’s that a maxi dress is your best friend.  I’ve always worn them but never have I appreciated them as much as I have these past couple of months.  Besides being the comfiest thing to wear in between sizes, they’re SO versatile and great for post baby as well.  This one from meet mark has been sitting in my closet forever because it was too big but now it’s a real life saver. I LOVE the blue and its lace cap sleeves.  I’ve worn it a ton of times in so many different ways for day and night.  For day I wear it with my green anorak, chain link necklace and my one of my favorite lucky brand bag (which comes in handy to when switching out heels for flats when your feet can’t take it anymore). For night, I just added a sparkly necklace, metallic satchel and took off the jacket.

Although lately I’ve been adding more and more color to my outfits , I always gravitate towards black and white.  That’s why I’m so happy that this spring season is seeing a lot of black and white mixed in with all of the bright, fun outfits.  Sure, the black and white trend is as basic as it gets, but when you pair them with spring florals and bright items, they become statement pieces.  One of the easiest ways you can wear the black and white trend this spring is right in your hand with a designer handbags for less!  From a color blocking satchel paired with jeans, or a striped clutch with a floral dress to a black and white tote for work or a fun polka dot bag – it’s sure to be the eye catching accessory in your wardrobe.  Check out some easy ways to incorporate these basic colored handbags into your wardrobe for spring below.

Totes can pretty much be worn with anything, anywhere!  Carry this black and white tote to work and then on the weekends with a pretty maxi dress and sandals.

Dolman Sleeve Cardigan | Sequin Collar Tee | Red Trousers |Polka Dot Bag | Rhinestone Flats

Polka dots give any outfit a fun touch but when paired with a cute casual outfit it’s double the fun!

Angela & Roi Handbags

I don’t know about you but my handbag is a pretty important part of my outfit, and when I pick one it has to have every detail to fit my needs because I wear it all day long and it’s usually filled to the brim!  I was recently sent the Square Dark Orange Tote by Angela & Roi to review and immediately fell in love with the bag AND the company!  It’s a roomy tote that can easily carry an ipad or books and has separate pockets on the outside (essential for people like me that lose everything). It also has a detachable strap making it not only stylish but super functional.   Angela & Roi offer a wide variety of vegan made handbags with a vintage feel that have a luxurious look without the hefty price tag.  Their classic selection of bags and colors make them closet must-haves that will never go out of style.  I also think it’s brilliant how they incorporate charitable endeavors via color. How does the Donate by Color Mission work?  Different medical issues relate to specific colors. For example, Colon Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color blue. When customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.  Check out my tote below and for more info visit – www.AngelaRoi.com

Top 5 Handbag Trends for 2012

November 19, 2012 by  
Filed under Accessories

Forget sugar daddies and designer watches – there’s only one thing you really need on your arm this season, and that’s a trend-hitting handbag. So get ready to cart your life about in style with our guide to the very best choices out there now:

Vibrant

The beauty of a good bag is that it can bring a delicious pop of colour to any outfit, and that’s just what you’ll get when you make a beeline for the latest neon treasures. The best way to rock the look is on a night out; pick a micro handbag and let the colour bring the big attitude.

Look to the future

Silver, shiny, studded and sparkling – the futuristic trend is your chance to have a love affair with all things metallic. Choose bags with unusual shapes and features – padlocks, clear panels, whatever you want goes, as long as it’s got that space-age edge.

If in doubt, oversize it

Oversized beauties by designers like Alexander Wang and Chloé are an indomitable presence in the style world right now, so who cares if your bag is only half full? Throw the biggest one you can find over your shoulder and strut your stuff.

Classic cool

Investing in a classic handbag is always the right move to make, but this season the ladylike glamour of a soft leather number in a timeless barrel shape is just what you need to finish off any look. Don’t be scared to coordinate with gloves and shoes; if you’re going to do the classic look, you may as well do it properly!

The briefcase is back in town

If you don’t want the responsibility of looking too grown up then opt for the briefcase’s cool cousin, the satchel. Henry Holland’s purple checked version, available from the range at Debenhams is perfect, and the print means you’ll be ticking off this season’s huge heritage trend, too.
