Style File: Bucket Bags

images via 1/2/3/4/5/6/7

I'm absolutely in love with the bucket bag trend that has been going on these past couple months. I think it all started with the iconic Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. I mean, it doesn't get more perfect than this bag, does it? I'm also loving this Shinola version, which is a more budget friendly option. Some of my other favorite picks are below - some as low as $30!

This week has been insanely hectic, so much so that I didn't even have time to create a post yesterday! Sorry for the absence... I will do my best to keep up this week. Hopefully things slow down soon.

Isn't this necklace so gorgeous? I love the crystal detail (which is actually the clasp of the necklace). It's such a versatile piece... you can wear it like I am doing so here, double it up, or even wrap it around as a bracelet. It's not available on the Bella Beads Studio page right now, but it's for sale, so either message me or the owner (Kris) here! If you haven't already entered the giveaway for another gorgeous Bella Beads necklace, make sure you do so HERE!

I hope you're all having a great Wednesday!

We had a warm spell here in Columbus a little while back, which was great, because I actually could snap these pictures and not be teetering around in the snow in my heels. I always feel a little idiotic doing so, but hey, anything for a good picture, right? Now, we have about six inches of snow, and it may be a max of 10 degrees today. Talk about some ridiculous weather. Yesterday, it was a level 2 emergency here, which in Ohio means that when you get more than just an inch or so, the plows can't handle it! Back to boots and big chunky sweaters it is, but hopefully not for too long. I'm about ready for Spring.

This clutch is a new favorite of mine. I just discovered recently that J.Crew offered a monogramming option for some of their bags. Needless to say, I was quite excited. I love a good monogram on just about anything, and it's only an extra $10! Not sure if any of you have checked out J.Crew's handbag collection, but its pretty awesome. The leather is incredible, the bags are really well made, and better yet, they're affordable.

Hope you all stay warm and dry today. Happy Monday!
