My Must-Have Bag Of The Season + My Favorite Bell-Sleeved Top

Happy #FASHIONWEDNESDAY!  Today, I am BACK with my style guide posts. I had taken a break from doing consistent style posts simply because it has been like 10 degrees outside and WAY too cold for shoots. Luckily, it’s finally reached about 45 degrees so I braved the chilly spring air because I was WAY too excited about this outfit. I bought this sweater last week in preparation for my trip to Connecticut next week and I just picked up this bag at Michael Kors this weekend. I am OBSESSED with blush, red and florals for spring (groundbreaking, I know) – so this outfit is the perfect love child between all three of those things. Let’s dive into this.

SHOP THIS TOP + BAG:

My Must-Have Bag Of The Season + My Favorite Bell-Sleeved Top

Conrad Swing Sweater – $24.99

This top is from Kohl’s – aka my absolutely favorite fav store ever – and is from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. If you are like me, you LOVE the cold-shoulder trend that has been sweeping the nation for approximately 2 years but don’t feel comfortable baring your shoulders for all to see (for modesty reasons but also #alwayscold). This top is the top FOR YOU. Is reminds me of the trendy cold shoulder situation that I love but covers my actual shoulder.

The bell-sleeve detailing with the little bows actually GIVES ME LIFE. I think it is SO CUTE and so trendy and it’s perfect for spring because the sweater is light enough that you aren’t going to be hot when it starts to get warmer, but it isn’t quite time for a short sleeved shirt. It’s like a little spring-time hug. Bonus points go to the fact that it’s SO AFFORDABLE.

Michael Kors Bristol Floral Appliqué Leather CrossBody – $328.00

My Must-Have Bag Of The Season + My Favorite Bell-Sleeved Top

I am obsessed with this bag. I am not even kidding you. I LIVE FOR THIS BAG. I have this embarrassing love affair with floral bags and all things floral. Floral shoes….floral dresses….floral tops….#cantstopwontstop. This particular bag is buttery soft and has a great cross body strap. I love the clasp at the front. It SEEMS very well made (which is good to see because not every MK bag I’ve come across has lasting power) and at this price point, it better last me the next 40 years. I rarely spend money on “trendy” items, but I feel like florals will never go out of style.

I also like how at the bottom of the bag, there are little feet so that the leather doesn’t get scratched on the bottom. That’s one of my problems with my Kate Spade bags (but don’t get me wrong: Kate Spade has my heart forever and always) – they don’t have little feet so after a while, the bottom is all scratched up just from setting it down in public places. I also love that the accent colors to the red is blush and gold. Any darker of a color would lean this bag more into the autumn or winter spectrum – but the blush and gold really pop and make it the BEST spring accent.

Here are some bags that are similar in style but a lot more affordable if you don’t want to spend almost $350 on a bag:

(FUN FACT: that last Steven Madden bag was a b-day gift to me from Erica from Coming Up Roses this year and it has been my go-to bag every day since my birthday basically. 10/10 would recommend)
