Ruffled Shoulders

Blouse: LOFT Outlet
Skirt: Tucker for Target {try here}
Heels: Chloé, thrifted {last seen here}
Purse: Chloé "Paraty"
Necklace: Vintage
Earrings: Made by me
Ring: Kendra Scott "Tela" {here}
Watch: Michael Kors {similar here}
Sunglasses: Chloé "Ammi" {here}

Happy Monday friends! As much as I love this Chloé bag, it's really one giant black hole. Readers, do you have any recommendations for purse organizers/separators? I should mention that I already use small zippered pouches to hold small things - I'm wanting some kind of insert with divided sections/compartments.

PS - Also bought this top on super clearance at the LOFT Outlet in January, but just pulled it out to wear for the first time recently! I frequently shop out-of-season to score the best prices.

I love this outfit! I use little zipper bags/pouches to store different things like gum, lipstick, etc in my big bags.

Love the outfit! I have a similar issue with my large bags, I make sure all items are colorful - ie my wallet, iPhone and makeup bag. Helps finding items in the black hole, IMO.

I love pairing that ruffle top with your awesome skirt (a favorite of mine). That color is beautiful on you!

I will be looking back for purse advice since I am the queen of dumping EVERYTHING out to find my keys!

Beautiful! I love the tones of this outfit! I also use smaller zippered bags or makeup bags to keep a large purse organized.

This is a gorgeous outfit. Very ladylike. I love the ruffle detail on that top!

Amy said...

Great grown up look!

Louisa said...

I love the ruffles, so pretty and the top is such a gorgeous, rich colour. I don't have any tips I'm afraid, I just just use smaller zippered bags like you mentioned!

Ally said...

Very chic outfit. I love the bag. I don't know anything about separators, though - sorry.

I love this top! Great clearance find!! :) As far as organizers.... not sure! I am horrible with mine. I have a Vera Bradley key chain small little clutch thing wear I keep my debit card/licence/work id so I am not always having to look through mine.

That necklace reminds me of something from an ancient tomb...something a queen would have worn! I love how elegant and dainty it is...and the ruffled shoulders on that top are so beautiful. Plus you've got those great dancer ankles :)

Jill J @ Classy with a Kick said... purse is a black hole too! I was just made fun of for all the things I keep in it! I usually used zippered pouches as well (love the ones from Baggu) but I do keep a small Louis Vuitton Pochette to keep key items. That way, I can use it as a clutch if need be! :)

Love shoulder details and these ruffles are so playful and feminine. Perfect with a pencil skirt.
So two things:
1) Sounds like your Chloe bag is a problem. I'll email you my address so you can send me this problem and you don't need to worry about it anymore :)
2) My purse is the least organized black hole. What makes it worse is that I change purses inevitably I forget to transfer over something important.

Lovely post Mary Ann!

What a gorgeous outfit! I really love your style!!! That top is so pretty! Sadly, my purses are also black holes so I don't really have any advice. I too use zippered pouches but still can't seem to find anything!!!

mmm that bag! but you do have to hate when they become bottomless pits. i don't have many recommendations sadly. my favorite bag is one i got off etsy that has pockets on the outside and i organize that way. i used to do zippered bags as well. purse organizers seemed to be a pain.
anyhow, this outfit is so sophisticated and beautiful. you look amazing.

Ruffles and I have a hard time getting along... you look good in them, though. (: My bags are ALSO black holes.
