Last Wednesday’s post was just a lot of outfit planning from me with several flat lays. Well, today I’m going to show you some of those exact same outfits actually on me. I thought they looked so dang cute laying on the table that I decided to throw them all on and see if they were going to live up to all the hype (in my head).
Well, good news girls..they totally did.
Now, before we get to the outfits, I want to talk a bit about the Barrington bags you will be seeing in this post. I’ve been working with Barrington for a little over 3 years now, and I love both the bags and the company. (You can click HERE to learn a bit about who they are as a company.) If you’ve never played around on their site, then you’re missing out. But be warned, you can fall down a DARLING RABBIT HOLE very easily. I think it took me a solid 2 hours to settle on the bags I got this time. But I enjoyed every dang minute of it.
Here is the first outfit from last week.
And yes, it’s my sister’s bag, which explains the initials. But I still threw it on with the outfit. #icouldnthelpmyself

I’ve received some questions about the quality of the bags, so I thought I would address those now. Barrington quality is EXCELLENT. Several of you have expressed concern about the fact that the straps are thin, but I can assure you that they hold up very well and can carry lots of weight. I stuff A TON of items in both my St. Anne and my Savannah bags. We’re talking wallet, make up bag, water bottle, a sunglasses case, and then a variety of other things which can include: a denim jacket or cardi, my calendar, and often times my lap top (in a laptop case). I’m telling you, the straps hold up beautifully.
This pineapple tote I’m showing is the St. Anne, even though it comes in the Savannah too. My sister and I typically prefer the Savannah because of it’s size and zipper….but for the summer collections, the St. Anne was the only tote that had the choice of blond leather (instead of the standard cognac). And Conner and I thought the pineapple was screaming for the blonde leather. So we listened to the pineapple, and I’m so glad we did! #thepineappletoldusto
If you do a lot of traveling, you might prefer the St. Anne since it’s bigger. And FYI, there’s a St. Anne diaper bag as well!!!!

Remember Outfit #2? A simple tee and cut offs jazzed up a quite a bit with accessories!
The Madewell tee I’m wearing is my favorite tee (I seriously think I have 6 because it comes in tons of colors). The colored tees are fine to wear on their own, but the white one will require a cami ( you can find my favorite $12 cami HERE). I sized up to a medium in the tee. If you prefer a fitted look, go with your normal size. If you want the fit to be a bit more slouchy (but not messy), size up! I’m wearing my regular size 27 in the shorts.
Again, for an everyday bag, I personally prefer the Savannah tote to the St. Anne. It’s a little bit smaller and it has a zipper, and I appreciate a zipper. It has great interior pockets too: one zippered pocket, a cell phone pocket, a larger pocket next to the cell phone pocket, and a pocket on each end which makes for lots of great storage. And although not as big as the St. Anne tote, it can still accommodate a laptop among all of the other regular stuff you typically carry.

Let’s take a close look at the sunglasses case. Because it’s awesome. This would make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift and/or a perfect graduation gift! I absolutely love giving personalized gifts, and Barrington has so many choices from totes, to travel bags, to make-up bags, to laptop cases…they have it all!
And for those of you that are confused by my monogram…my middle name is Sheaffer! My parents named me Lauren Sheaffer, but always called me Sheaffer.
Here are some more of the Barrington items you can choose from:
And here’s Look #3.
Look #3 starts with one of my favorite combos: white denim, chambray, and cognac. And then I added pops of colors with the accessories again. This outfit would look MUCH different with a cognac bag. It would still be cute…but with the turquoise and palm print, I think it’s a WOW!

That’s it for the outfits from last Wednesday’s post, but I have some more. If you follow me on social media, then you might have seen some of these next outfits over the weekend. The agate necklaces I talked about last week are sold out in every color, except the brown. And I’m TOTALLY surprised that the brown is left, because it’s an awesome neutral that will look great with so many different outfits. Look how pretty it is styled with my favorite tee (the white one needs a cami) and these dark distressed denim shorts.
When I was doing my Denim Shorts Review, I wasn’t planning on keep this dark pair (since I got the $39 pair), even though I liked them. They were actually in the “take back” pile, but when I styled the outfit below on Friday morning, the $39 shorts didn’t add enough color contrast to the outfit…but these did. So I took the tags off of them. 🙂
And I loved how the brown agate topped off this all neutral outfit.
white tee / $12 cami / short necklace (type in “engraved bar”) / agate and pave necklace / dark distressed denim shorts / guitar strap / cognac sandals (size up 1/2 a size) / gorjana small stud earrings

But for those of you that prefer bold and vibrant colors, I took the same white tee and denim shorts outfit, and then switched up the look with just the accessories. Sadly these next necklaces are no longer available, but I still thought I would show the outfits to give those of y’all who got these necklaces before they sold out some styling ideas!
And if you got the pink one, look how cute it is with the palm tote!
And if you still need more convincing on the brown agate…I have two more looks for you with it….
With a blush pink tee, white jeans, and my must have denim jacket. Yep, I love a neutral outfit.
That’s it for today, y’all! See you back here on Wednesday, where you’ll finally get to see my mom’s new skincare review!!!
Oh, and if you own a Barrington bag, I would love for you to leave a comment with what product(s) you own and what you think about them! Sometimes readers want to know what other people think, not just me.
In fact, let’s have a little fun! A name will be chosen from the Barrington comments below, and that person will win one of their new monogrammed sunglasses cases from me! I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday, so make sure you come back then. 🙂 You know, a sunglasses case would be a great way to get the darling pineapple print for yourself, without having to commit to a huge purchase!
