Dagne Dover Medium Landon Carryall in Dune

Hi y'all! With switching jobs from public accounting to industry, I was in the search for a new work bag. I'm able to workout during my lunch break at work so wanted a bag to double up as my gym bag. I've been a fan of Dagne Dover for several years and own one of their wallet on chains. I wasn't super crazy over it but I love the styles Dagne Dover has come out with in the past few years, including their collab with Marianna Hewitt (style muse). I have been wanting to purchase a bag of theirs for a while, I love how organized their bags are plus their history. Originally I wanted to get their signature tote and a backpack but after realizing that would cost close to $400, I looked for other options. After a bit of research, I decided on the Landon Carryall in the medium size. This color, Dune, is seasonal (and currently on sale) and I took a leap of faith hoping it wouldn't end up being brown and I'm so glad I did! It is a beautiful, muted plum shade that I am going cray over.... mayhap it will be added to my color combo?

I filmed a full review plus what's in my work/gym bag on the channel. If you're coming from there, hello & welcome :) Hope you will come back soon for more posts. I wanted y'all to see the color a bit more for those interested. Scroll down more for what it looks like in direct sunlight. Snatch up a carryall while you can during their sale!! P.S. I bought it myself during their Black Friday sale.

How to Know When to Switch Jobs

Hi y'all! As some of you may know, I recently switched jobs and obviously while I was deciding whether to do it, what I wanted out of life, etc., I wasn't able to share my rationale. So in addition to sharing this super cute outfit, I wanted to give you a few of my thoughts. Maybe it will help you if you're in the same boat.

Also, FYI - mom jeans = thigh toe. Own it girl!!!

Dressing Room Update - Elfa Closet System

Hi y'all! It's been about a year since I did a dressing room update and I have a hankering to move things around in the next few months so might as well share how the dressing room looks right now.

Since my last update, we have added an Elfa / Ikea system to the other wall of the room. I mainly use this side for longer pieces (like my maxi dresses and dusters), blazers and jackets. I added a few drawers to hold my lady garments and athleisure wear. I bought this valet rod from the Container Store and use it to hang the following day's outfit, during the days I actually plan ahead which - let's be honest - are far and few between :) It gives the dressing room almost like a store feel, so I can trick myself into shopping my closet and not an actual store hehe.

Knowing what I wanted this wall for, we designed and purchased a custom Elfa plan during one of their sales. I actually purchased everything over a span of 3 visits, whenever they had their 30% off sale. Took a bit of patience but it was well worth it. To border the Elfa system, we bought the skinny versions of the Billy bookcases from Ikea. The Elfa system definitely cost more than the other side of the room but I wanted some versatility in case I changed my mind. I can always add more drawers, add shelves, more hanging space, etc. with the Elfa system.

Mike DIY'ed this island from three Ikea bookshelves. When it's not piled high with clothes, I like using it to showcase my perfumes and jewelry. I plan on adding a glass or mirror counter-top soon.

I've been spending this holiday weekend decluttering and reorganizing my dressing room and office. It's crazy how much stuff can accumulate over the years! Does anyone else have a hard time parting ways with things? I just posted my Christian Louboutin Decollete pumps on Poshmark if anyone is interested in purchasing. They don't get any loving from me so I think it's time for them to go to a loving home :) Anyways, hope y'all enjoyed my little update, now going back to decluttering!
