Sail Away :: Layered tunic & Magenta clutch

Sail Away-1

Happy Wednesday everyone!  As I was finishing this post, I realized that my obsession with lace didn’t end at the last entry.  Three in a row!  I promise it will be a lace-free post next time =)  For these warm summer days, I take comfort in breezy layers by adding a light lace moto jacket over a long tunic.  I consider this jacket more of a layering piece than an actual outerwear item.  It’s quite thin so it keeps me cool during the summer, and for autumn, I’m planning to add a sleeveless leather vest over it to create a full jacket look.

I wanted to reserve colors for the accessories – jewel tones against black and white.  Both are vibrant pieces with loads of personality.  When we saw this bag, MM and I immediately thought it had two eyes (the gold hardware pieces at the handle) and a mouth.  It looks like it’s grinning!  This might sound strange, but I love accessories that look happy!
