Happy Tuesday!!!

Another week is upon us.
So many things happened this past weekend, it's crazy.
First, the news of the Zimmerman case being acquitted (So unfair. I don't know what's going on with the jury. He was obviously guilty!), then came the death of "Glee" star Cory Montieth (So sad and unexpected. I was a BIG fan!). And apparently Kyle Massey (That's So Raven's Cory) has cancer?! WHAT?!

This weekend was just so full of bad news, I think we all need a bit of cheering up.
I don't know about you guys, but when things in my life gets a little too dark, I like to dress up COLORFUL!
It's just really makes me happy when I see bright colors.
Don't you agree?

The Nica Vanessa Shoulder Bag is a stylish and practical bag that has a statement textured finish and contrast panels. A sleek Nica fitting gives this bag a chic finish that would work both casually and in the work place. There is one large section which is secured by a large flap and twist lock. Inside, the main compartment is secured by a zip has plenty of room to keep everything you need and more and has a zipped pocket along the back wall and 2 open drop pockets on the front wall. On the front of the bag there is a large open pocket which can also fit plenty in and will help keep you organised while on the move. The bag is fully lined in a high quality cloth material and features a stylish floral pattern

Chris from Bagable sent me this beautiful handbag.
I think the CORAL color is just absolutely perfect for the summer!
It's not too big. nor too small: just the PERFECT size. I can even use it as a school bag.
It features a long and short strap. Meaning you'll be able to carry it via "forearm" or "shoulders" (pictured above). Haha.
It also has a floral-like quilted detailing in the front, along with a gold twist lock.
It's very roomy. I can fit A LOT of things inside the main compartment. 
It's made out of high quality cloth, which is very important when it comes to handbags.
It also comes in 3 other colors: MINT, BLACK, and BEIGE
I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH. It's definitely my new go-to bag. ;)

To add more liveliness to the outfit AND to match the "floral-like" detailing in front of the handbag, I wore my new floral cropped tee that I purchased from a local boutique.
It has a low back, which I thought was really cute.
I paired it with my Forever 21 navy blue cotton skirt, exposing a sliver of midriff skin. ;)

For accessories, I wore my 2 owl necklaces. Aren't they so cute? 
And for my shoes, I wore my trustee snake skin sandal flats. 
I've had these since I was in 8th grade.
Can you guys believe that?! For some reason, I just cannot get myself to throw them away! Haha.

I hope this post brought somewhat of a SMILE on your faces.
Have a great week!!! :D
