Now that it finally feels like summer has arrived, all I’m reaching for in my closet is white, white, and more white. There’s just something about a crisp, all-white ensemble that makes you feel a bit more carefree. (But, like, overly cautious and extremely anxious at the same time! 😂) Clumsiness aside, white on white on white typically ends up being that easy go-to for me during the summer. Kind of like wearing all back in the winter, you know?
If it’s not white on white, it’s white and blue. Last summer, my navy blue crossbody bag went just about everywhere with me. While she’s still one of my absolute favorite bags, I wanted a little white crossbody to carry this year. Admittedly, I almost pulled the trigger on the white version of my navy crossbody bag, but you know… budgeting. Whomp, whomp. Especially with the bag being light-colored and probably worn with many of pairs of jeans and put through many rosé-fueled weekends, I figured a budget-friendly buy was a bit of a better idea. So responsible of me, I know! 😉
I was browsing the $200 and under category at Nordstrom and was instantly drawn to this little white number! I love the square shape, I love how it’s big enough to fit all of the essentials (plus a few extras!), and I love the gold hardware against the white saffiano leather. And if you’re not familiar, it’s much more difficult to stain/ruin saffiano leather… It’s super durable!
Get the Look…
Here are a few other handbags under $200 that caught my eye!
I found this dress a few weeks ago and couldn’t believe it when I saw the price tag… $108!! No brainer, right?! It looks so much more expensive, especially in person. It’s got just the right amount of stretch, too, so it’s unbelievably comfortable and perfect for hot summer days. I’ve already worn it multiple times! I originally bought it to wear to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New York this past weekend, but I ended up wearing a blue dress instead… Outfit post coming soon!
