Is it me or has walking out the door for work these past few days been feeling a bit more brisk than usual? Fall is that you boo? Summer flew by. I blinked and here it is September. I was JUST celebrating my sons last day of Kindergarten in June. TIME slow down pleaseee. I barely had a chance to break in any summer style and I am already getting my fall wardrobe together. Over the past couple of years my style has really “grown up” and I find myself less concerned with trends and more focused on creating a solid wardrobe and curating pieces from indie, conscious, and–my passion–brown girl owned brands. Supporting my brown girls is what. I. do. and I want to translate that in every area of my life. Including my closet girl.
I believe I was surfing the gram when I came across style blogger Cortnie and learned that aside from her dope blog she creates her own line of bags: Love Cortnie. Forever a clutch enthusiast I was excited when I came across this large leopard clutch on her site. LOVEEEE.
For me, an oversized printed clutch is a staple in my minimalist-afro-chic wardrobe (yes that’s a thing don’t debate me on this). Since most of my outfits are pretty simple, accessorizing is key. Skinnies, tee, and blazer = simple. WITH an large leopard clutch = girl you better werk.
Check out Love Cortnie for a pretty irresistible collection of printed clutches including the one on my wish list which is the Ashleigh. Handmade fashion by a brown girl. Get into it. As for me, I’m off to selectively place the link to this post in the hubs mentions ;).
What’s on your current style wish list? Any brands I should be checking out?
Stay Blessed Beautiful!
