Hey there. So in honor of it being 46 degrees today I decided to do an outfit of the day for you since I’m not hiding under six layers of sweaters and jackets. Forty-six degrees may not seem warm to you, and previously it didn’t seem warm to me either, but after almost two weeks of the temperature hovering in between the single digits and twenties it feels kinda mild out.
For today’s choices I decided to focus on handmade things. My bag, which is my current favorite, is handmade by a small company out of Australia. My jewelry, aside from the map watch, is also all handmade. Two of the bracelets are crafted by various artists out of the states and the necklace is made from a lovely beach gypsy that lives on the coast of Australia.
I toyed around with getting the gypsy bag for a realllllly long time. It was very pricey and my thrifting mindset was not about to spend $$$ on a bag. After a year went by I still wanted it so my boyfriend offered to buy it for me as one of my Christmas presents. Funny thing is, when he got it in the mail he passed it around for his family to touch and feel because of how amazing the quality is. It’s the softest thing I’ve ever felt – including Cassyus, my persian kitty cat – and the quality of leather is gorgeous. Ever since I’ve been all about this company and you can find their website here. I have the large version – they do sell smaller versions – and it fits everything I need such as wallet, phone, makeup, reporter’s notebook and maybe one or two other things. The strap is really, really long which is cool because I’m tall. It’s not adjustable.
As for other details, here’s the makeup I’m wearing if it makes a difference. I got some questions about it before but to be honest I really don’t wear that much. My routine takes me 8-10 minutes.
