Do you girls LOVE scallops? Because I love scallops. Like I realllllllly love scallops. I’ve been drawn to them since I was a little girl, and it’s no different today. I think they are feminine and pretty, and I think a scallop detail added on just about anything is a nice touch! So, when Nordstrom asked me to talk about Spring items, as soon as I found THIS TOTE, I knew I would be talking about all things scallops!
Last week I met a girlfriend in downtown McKinney for a birthday lunch at Snug (one of my favorite spots on our downtown square – get the Bacon Pimento Melt! Yum!), and I was carrying my new scalloped tote, so I thought it was the perfect time to snap some pics!
Y’all. THIS TOTE is FABULOUS. And hold on to your scallops ladies…it’s ONLY $48.
The tote really is WOW worthy. It’s a great size (not too big, not too small), the tote has enough structure to stand on it’s own, it has little feet on the bottom, the scallops are obviously DARLING (total bonus that they are perforated), and I love the contrast of the white lining! It’s a great tote. And like I said previously, IT’S ONLY $48!!!!! And if we’re being honest, I love it so much more than THIS one from Kate Spade….and it’s $298.
As you can see, there’s a whole lot of room on the inside! There’s one interior pocket that’s great for a cell phone and keys, and the rest of the tote has plenty of room for a wallet, sunglasses case, and make-up bag…which is what I was carrying in it this particular day. I’ve also had a water bottle and my Erin Condren planner in it without any problem. AND my denim jacket. And y’all, the white lining makes it so easy to find things!!!!! Total bonus! Click HERE for the tote. (Also, THIS is my wallet. It needs a post of it’s own one day, because I love it.)
Here’s the entire outfit! It’s TOTALLY simple, but I thought it was SERIOUSLY cute all put together. And come on, THE BAG makes the outfit! But let’s be honest, the shoes don’t hurt.
Here’s what you need to know about what I’m wearing. Pay special attention to the $18 tassel necklace, the fact that my favorite sunglasses and favorite watch are both ON SALE, and the initial necklace the the gold bracelet would both make FANTASTIC Mother’s Day gifts. And so would the tote, obviously. Oh…and the shirt has tiny little pleats on the back!
pleated back shirt / similar cuffed jeans from same maker / $18 tassel necklace / initial necklace c.o Moon and Lola and available at Nordstrom/ sunglasses 25% OFF RIGHT NOW!/ ribbon wedges / blingy hoop earrings / watch 20% OFF RIGHT NOW!/ gold bracelet / similar enamel bracelet
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the shirt, so it’s true to size. It comes in black, white, blush (LOVE the blush), a couple of patterns, this soft coral one is on sale, AND THEY HAVE PLEATS ON THE BACK. I’m a fan of pleats just as much as I am of scallops. (THIS pleated dress from the same maker of the top has me swooning.)
Here’s a closer look at everything up top!
And at this angle, you can get a little peek into the store behind me…more on it in a second!
So after lunch, I had about an hour to kill, so I walked around a bit by myself. I absolutely ADORE our town square. The entire square is incredibly charming, and I thought ya’ll might want to see some quick shots of some of my favorite spots! Ignore the dirty mirror. Please pay attention to the complete joy on my face. The kind of joy that comes when you are casually strolling through antique stores without a care in the world BY YOURSELF.
See ya’ll back here on Wednesday for What’s Up Wednesday!
