outfit details: Tote: Michael Kors (TJ Maxx)//Dress: Michael Michael Kors (old, MK outlet)//Pumps: Maurices (Plato’s Closet)//Arrow Necklace: Total Betty Society//Gold necklace: unknown//Fedora: Virtis (Plato’s Closet)//Sunnies: uknown brand (Plato’s Closet).

If you follow me on instagram then you have seen where my hubby finally purchased me my Michael Kors Birthday purse, as you see I am in love with above.  We found it at TJ Maxx actually for under the set $200 budget, and it was love at first site. I am IN LOVE with my tan Hamilton tote, so when I saw this mini Hamilton in white (actually my hubby spotted the purse first and suggested our trip to TJ Maxx to look) I was just ahhh speechless, jumping in my new pump shoes.  I thank many of you who encouraged me to go back to TJ MAXX and look again, since last trip was a disappointment, this time was well worth it, of course.

I also love my new Maurices pumps that you see here (from Plato’s closet), and know I will get a lot of wear with them, as they are comfortable and just so darn cute. My dress is an old Michael Kors, so it felt nice to have my hubby tell me I looked like I had a million bucks (especially with my new purse). The fedora hat is a staple to my everyday wardrobe to see how I have styled it before go here.

Anyway, we had a whole day to ourselves, so we shopped for my purse, bought some décor to change up the living room colors, sat in starbucks and discussed future book plans (we are aspiring writers by heart) and believe it or not I went to the library to write my Mall of Style review and giveaway which you can view here, and enter the giveaway below. Now how is that for a day without kids?

      God is just so good- my hubby had a big part in picking out the right purse and sticking with me on my search. I am loving it. The fedora is probably my go to accessory now more than jewelry, well almost.

  • Marianne June 12, 2014 at 2:11 am

    Oh yay!!! You picked a fab one! See! Good things come….. you know the rest! That bag will go with anything! Can’t wait to see what else you will style it with! Looking good!


    • garaytreasures June 13, 2014 at 12:26 am
