Cross Body Bags

neon cambridge satchel

I love shoulder bags/cross body bags. They are so convenient, and hassle free. Perfect for shopping, traveling, running errands, even a night out. They're usually the perfect size in comparison to tote bags, which means you have all the essentials you need for a worry free outing. They come in so many patterns and colors, that a neutral, classic one can be a great basic to always have, while a neon or more edgier version is perfect for accessorizing your outfit the right way, or adding a pop of color. 

Below are some of my picks that seem like the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
The Cambridge Satchel and the Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C's are two of my personal all time favorites that so far have not seemed to disappoint in either practicality, quality, or design/aesthetics!

(everyday neutral version // add a little edge with this fun color and stud detail)

The Cambridge Satchel
(great to have in a fun color, and neutral ones are great as well)

A DVF Harper for a fun twist on the classic cross body
The 'connect' version allows you to carry your iPad around in style

Laughter, It's the Best Kind of Medicine

Instead of the weekly quote, I decided to put up a few funny & relatable phrase this week! Something that 'someecards' is very good at doing! I love reading through them. Although I do think their often 'inappropriate word choices' could be swapped out for more 'appropriate' ones. However here's a list of some I found over the week that were too hilarious not to share. Enjoy, and hope this gives you the chance to see the lighter side of things, especially if you've had a busy or crazy week!

Style Crush: Olivia Palermo

There's something about each and every outfit she puts on. They always look perfect, and they're effortlessly yet perfectly coordinated and balanced. The key to her style is balancing simple with statement pieces, and making even a simple set of skinny jeans & sweater look great. 

She always compliments her outfit, with well made hair, even if that means a simple pin backed look, and accessories, even if that means a necklace or a couple bracelets. Those few additions can take your mundane look to a olivia-palermo-esque one. Keep your make up natural and minimal-looking on an everyday bases to accentuate and bring out your natural features & beauty. Never be afraid to wear a statement piece or pop of color!

Another Picture Perfect Wedding

Purple Dusk by Carousel
Location: Ritz Carlton DIFC

Yet another amazing wedding by Carousel
Held at the Ritz @ DIFC, the simple ballroom was transformed into a sunset-esque beauty in just 48 hours. The tables and chairs perfectly alined, the satin napkins adorned with the couples logo in a beautiful metallic Arabic calligraphy print, the flowers, the curtains, the candles, the indoor trees, personalized chocolates, decorated bathrooms complete with perfumes and candies, and not to forget the flower cloud of baby-breaths! The best part is seeing the final look after watching each element coming into the room, hour after hour, when it all fits perfectly together fitting the bride's, Zainab, and Leena's vision!
