I toyed with naming this post “Something Old, Something Blue” but thought I’d cut myself a little slack.  I’m not really old after all!  I’ve tried to do an all-navy post for a while, but always seemed to have an issue with pictures turning out for one reason or another.  I’m glad we were finally able to make it work.

This top and cropped pants combo are actually the same dark blue but the top looks a little lighter in the pictures.  This particular style is sold out unfortunately, but I’ve linked a couple of others, especially a good long-sleeve option to help you head into fall.

Ann Taylor is having a fabulous sale right now: sign up to receive their emails and receive 40% off your entire purchase!  The cropped pants come in regular, long and petite sizes as well as a couple of different figure-flattering fits so finding your perfect size shouldn’t be too difficult.

How great is this reversible bag?  I wanted to show both colors because they both went well with the navy look.  The bag reverses in a snap and has a cute little wrislet you can use either for it’s designed purpose or as a small bag within the large one.  I’m using it as the little bag.  After a summer using mostly small, cross-body bags this large tote is almost overwhelming.  I use several little cosmetic bags to help sort and group the loose items that fall to the bottom and get lost.  But seriously, if I had two items in my bag I’d have a hard time finding the one I needed at any given time.

By the way, I’m part of a fun Starbucks giveaway loop so please head over to Instagram and check it out!

It’s Friday, lovelies!  We’re having a little wine soiree after work today which I’m really looking forward to.  Have a wonderful weekend!
