I love what a pop of color does to a monochromatic look. Whether it's with a shoe, a lipstick, or in this case a bag, a little pop of color goes a long way. This color block clutch is so perfect for me because it represents my 3 favorite colors. When I was young I was all about red, as a teen is was pink galore, and now as an adult I love everything purple :) So a thumbs up to my aunt who gave me this for Christmas ;)!
I purchased these checkered pants over the weekend from H&M. I thought the pattern was pretty cool and they're the perfect pair of pants to dress up and down. I wanted more of a streamlined look that allowed the pants to be the focal point, so I opted for a black top and blazer.
 My sister got me this statement necklace from Bauble Bar for my birthday and I LOVE it!! I couldn't wait to wear it. It brought out the black and silver accents from the outfit perfectly. Thanks Jess! <3
