    • I never fully appreciated a chain strap on a clutch until I lost one by leaving it in the front of a shopping cart. Now I have to have my handbag attached to me somehow at all times ;-)

    LOVE how you styled up a basic tee with a statement gold piece to make it look fresh. All about the collar trend! And thanks for the tip about Lydell jewelry. Never heard of them before, but such cute stuff…
