Happy Monday everyone! Sorry there’s no new outfit post today, last week I literally only wore sweats (that’s the only thing I feel comfy/fit into right about now). So instead I’m sharing a few past outfits wearing one of my favorite bags! I bought this Saint Laurent bag last April and have gotten so much use out of it over the last year (actually a lot more use than expected)!  I was a little hesitant to purchase it at first because it’s so bright but I can’t believe how easily it pairs with so many different colors and how often I find myself wearing it!

The silhouette of this bag is still available but unfortunately, you can no longer purchase it in this same color. I was on ShopBop a few nights ago and spotted an almost identical bag and I wanted to share with all of you in case you’ve been trying to hunt down a neon bag.

I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

xo, Rach

  4. Thanks for sharing Rachel :) I am loving neon bags this season! I bought a bright bag myself a couple months back that I wasn’t sure how much I would use, but I’ve gotten so much use out of it. I feel like a bright bag can really tie a look together!

  36. Aww Rachel we totally understand sweats being the comfiest for you right now. You could even do an outfit post in sweats and I’m sure it would look glamorous :)! I love your Saint Laurent bag and all the many ways you have styled it. Top of my wish list is the Rebecca Minkof version.

  39. I have a neon crossbody from J.Crew that you’re right- it’s amazing how much use you get out of a neon bag!

  40. Such a cute bag… I hadn’t realized how many looks you style it with. For such a bright color, your outfits flow so seamlessly that it’s hardly noticeable that you wear it over and over. Love it!

    Love that bag and I enjoyed how you shared different pictures/outfits of when you wore it. I feel like I struggle with pairing bright accessories with some of my outfits. I fear that I will only wear it once, so it was nice to see how you styled this purse. By the way, loved your instagram picture of you and Dasher going on a walk. So cute :)

    Stay Styled,

That last week is miserable-the only thing you are motivated to do is have that baby!!:-) You have done such a great job keeping up on your blog and staying positive throughout the pregnancy. Definitely give yourself a break over the next few weeks (and months)!

    Rach, this is one of top favorites out of your handbag collection. I love neon! It really does go with so much. I have a Marc by Marc neon bag that will help me achieve some of these amazing looks that you collected. I think it’s lovely to do a round up of the many ways you can style a particular item. Keep relaxing in those sweatpants/tees!! Your baby girl will be here so soon!
