Weekend wear in a casual plaid top and a fringe cross body bag drinking a starbucks

Well, hello - happy Thursday! I'm back with an outfit post - woo hoo! Having twin babies has been a whirlwind, so it's a miracle that I actually have time to write a blog post.

The boys are currently taking a nap, so I have a few minutes to spare. And by few minutes I mean seconds, so imagine me typing like a maniac to get this written before someone wakes up. Ha! I'm sure Liam is already watching me with one eye open.

Have I mentioned I love these little guys? Anyway, that's not even what today's post is about. Let's get to it.

Italian Leather Fringe Cross body Bag and Plaid Top

My mom style is in full effect these days. It's either cozy joggers, a basic tee, or an easy throw on-and-go type of look. That's exactly what this one was! Chris and I had a ton of errands to run the day I wore this, which also meant pumping in the car to stay on schedule, so a button-down it was.

Here's a tip to all of my new or soon to be mamas - buy button-down tops. A LOT of them. They are perfect with new babies. This plaid button-down has been on major repeat in my closet, and it's finally back in stock! Check out how I styled it with booties and cute accessories (perfect for Thanksgiving!), or with leggings and tennis shoes when I was running back and forth to the NICU for the boys.

And then there's today's look, which is more of my typical. I love a good plaid, skinny jeans, and flat booties, but I love a great purse even more.

What I love about this fringe bag from Positive Elements is that it doubles as a cross body like I styled here, or you can also remove the strap and carry it as a clutch. That means, it's a day to day bag, a great accessory for your holiday looks, or perfect for a night out on the town. I don't mind spending a bit more on purses when I know I can style it multiple ways, and get the most for my money.

Did I mention it's 100% Italian leather? Smells SO good, y'all. Does anyone else love the smell of leather? I can't get enough! If you're curious on my exact one, it's called the AG Cross Body Fold Over in Navy. It's $176 (not bad!), and available at Positive Elements. You can save 20% + free shipping now through 12/10 with code: LOVE FRINGE. The 20% off applies to any order, so browse their site and grab something you like.

If you're looking to treat yourself, or spend a little more on someone for Christmas, this would make the perfect gift! I'm sure there isn't a girl around that will complain about getting a cute new purse. Just sayin'.

And speaking of gifts - I am preparing some gift guides for this year. I've gotten some feedback that people would like to see a Gift Guide for Him, and a Gift Guide for Babies. Anything else you wanna see? I will do specific guides for a few categories, and then link the rest of the products that I'm loving through the blogs top navigation bar. Check it out when you have a free second - there is some cute stuff out there this year!

It's getting close y'all. Eek! Can't wait to start decorating for my favorite time of the year!
Until next time.
