Sweaters and Shorts-Not an Oxymoron

Our weather has been bi-polar over here in Fresno but I'm not gonna lie any time I get warmth I'm in love.  It's been perfect this last week for a light sweater, cut off shorts, and my favorite fall booties.  Sweaters and shorts sound like a total oxymoron but I totally love the weather when I can mix summer and fall pieces.  Two of my favorite colors this fall are plum/Merlot and slate grey.  In this look I was able to incorporate both so that's a win-win for me!

This is my favorite new staple piece!!!! This purse from Gigi New York is the total package- crossbody, snake skin, slate grey, gold accents, and a tassel!!!!  I couldn't ask for a more perfect purse.  I have been wearing it with nearly everything and I get so many compliments on it.  It works with so many looks and it's so functional because it's a cross body.  Being functional and gorgeous is like the holy grail.

I want everything from Gigi New York from all their gorgeous bags to their wallets, notebooks, jewelry rolls, and duffle bags.  Gigi New York is a family run factory defined by Bennett Glazer, the Graphic Image Founder who never designed a bag but left his footprint on the company.  Gigi New York credits its survival through the Great Recession to bloggers who could reach millions of people when they had very little advertising budget.  I love how the advertising world has changed and I'm so curious to see how this will continue to evolve.  It's one of my favorite parts of being a blogger to share what I love with so many people.
