A Good Run

I feel like I’ve had a really good run of outfits that made me happy lately. This was another.

It’s basically the same outfit I wore a few days before, but in different colors. Same leggings, same blouse.

The cream color of the blouse is something I would normally avoid, as I am an accident waiting to happen, but when the shape is so perfect, I can make an exception.

It’s not super easy to see, but I’ve got my watch pendant on, I’ve just tucked it in my blouse so that you can see just the chain. I like that for when the watch is overwhelming an outfit, but I don’t want to be without it. I’ve gotten used to having a watch on most days pretty quickly!

I got these shoes at least 2, maybe 3 years ago at Target. The leather still looks really fresh and they are comfortable. It is not always easy to find nice, comfortable leather shoes at discount stores, but it can be done!

I love this bag, the shape is so classic, the color is interesting, it’s a great size and it’s really well made. But on the downside, it’s not coated at all, which means it’s as hard to keep clean as suede. Which means I almost never caryy it, and that's not OK for what I paid. Can I have it treated somehow to keep the color but have it be more of that “sealed” leather I’m used to? Or if that can’t be done, can it be dyed a darker color? I’d love to carry it more.

I loved the outfit before, and I love it again with the new colors :)

Perhaps you might be able to find a product at a shoe shop to treat the leather? It's such a nice bag it's a shame it doesn't get more use! I think my favorite part is the handle- so different!

I adore those shoes - such a happy color. And I agree with Jess - maybe take the bag into a shoe shop and see what they recommend.

I guess I am just going to repeat what everyone else has said so far. Adore the shoes! And go to a cobbler or a leather shop.

You are a walking advertisement for Target, with the determination to save the $ for those choice key pieces. You look phenomenal.

If you love something, buy it all colors! You look great!

Isn't there a leather or suede sealant in a spray can? I bought a leather sealant for a coat. I thought they made the same for suede.
