Winter Classics :: Plaid coat & White bag

by wendy

Happy Monday everyone and greetings from Los Angeles!  I’m currently in LA right now, but this outfit and photo story was taken right before I left.  When I left New York, it was 32° and it’s currently 78° in LA!

With so much warmth and sunshine, I left all of my coats behind but what I did take with me was this charmer… my Senreve Mini Maestra bag!  It’s incredibly versatile and can be worn as a satchel, tote, or backpack, which is great for traveling.  Even though it’s a ‘mini’ size, it fits quite a lot.  With a micro suede interior, it has pockets inside for an iPad, phone, wallet, card holder, keys, love notes, cat treats, and more.

In addition to the pockets, water-resistant pebbled leather, sleek design, and Italian craftsmanship, this bag has another component that I greatly admire.  It’s a young San Francisco-based brand founded by women and their mantra resonates with me deeply.  They believe in the strength of women.  While understanding the challenges that come with juggling many roles and responsibilities, they do believe that women can achieve it all.  The caretakers, the entrepreneurs, the executives, the nurturers, the advocates… the many official and unofficial titles that women hold.  And these roles together create a symphony of meaningful relationships and social change.

When it comes to color and styling, I’m a huge fan of this cream color.  With a slight beige undertone, this bag is a great neutral piece that is sharp but still tender.  And it’s a beautiful color for spring, summer, fall, and winter.  Yes, winter!  I actually love wearing white and cream colors in the winter.  Maybe because it reminds me of snow =)  With this bag, I love pairing it with an all-black outfit for an off-duty look, an oversized high neck sweater and boyfriend jeans for a relaxed weekend look, and a sharp blazer and slim-leg pants for a tailored look.

Cream, black, blush, forest, mini, large, doctor, and clutches… with so many beautiful colors and elegant designs, Senreve has something for everybody this holiday season (after the Mini Maestra, my favorite is the Doctor bag!).  Happy holidays and thank you so much for reading!  And special thanks to Senreve for partnering on this post!
