Neutral Territory

I’ve been dreaming of this Celine bag, so when I saw this fun little satchel at Zara for a fraction of the price, I was all over it! Ya know, one of those situations where I make myself look like a crazy person when I tell the dressing room employee that I will cry if she gives the bag to someone else while I’m trying on clothes and to make sure she’s watching it at all times. Not like that happened or anything… 😉 (PS – Also comes in yellow, cobalt blue, black, and a larger version, too!)

    I love these shots of you Jessica and I can’t believe that cute striped tee is from Old Navy. I must have been underestimating them this whole time… love it!

      I don’t mind the material. I know that it’s faux leather but I don’t expect a lot from Zara!
