What I Wore Wednesday- Two Outfits, One Bag

Rarely do I build an outfit around an accessory. Usually I'm inspired by a recent top or sweater purchase, perhaps by a cool pair of pants. This week however, I was inspired to build TWO outfits around an accessory-and you'll see why.

The satchel that inspired my outfits is versatile and chic- easily transitioning from everyday casual to nighttime sassy. Since my life (and the life of almost every woman I know) has occasion for both sorts of outfits, owning a handbag that saves me the time it takes to switch the contents of my purse from day bag to night clutch is invaluable.

As is the case almost every week, I created a funky nighttime party look and a casual relaxed daytime look. The two looks don't use the same color palate, but both are complimented by my beloved neutral color block satchel. Which look is your favorite?

Look One:

Tank- Banana Republic
Vest- Forever 21
Shorts- Urban Outfitters
Tights -CVS
Ring- Festival Find
Bag- C/O Pixie Mood

Look Two:

Sweater- Express
Tank- Victoria's Secret
Pants- Forever 21
Earrings- BonTon
Necklace- Festival Find
Bag- C/O Pixie Mood

If you love my bag as much as I do, learn more about the wonderful company that made it in my recent feature post here.
