Lillian

Denim shorts: Vintage (get similar here). Top: TopShop. 
Sandals: TopShopBag: Chanel.

I splashed out on a new bag (instagramed here). I love that it's a modern take on an old calssic. The leather is matte and the hardware is tarnished so it gives what can be quite a preppy style a bit of edge. I like dressing it down with cut offs and flats but it will work great for cocktails too.... I am totally justifying a very expensive purchase!

  3. I love that purse! It's the one thing I want to splurge on! Someday I will get one, and because it's a timeless piece & goes with pretty much anything...I don't plan on feeling an ounce of guilt! Is mixing designers ok? Cuz this bag would look fabulous with my Jackie Onassis style REAL Dior sunglasses that are also timeless. Love it!
