Classic, Casual Elegance

It’s finally starting to feel like spring!

We’ve done daylight savings time, and the temperatures have been above freezing for several days in a row – here in the Tri-state area, it’s starting to feel a lot like springtime (and just in time, too). And though it may not be time to pack up all of your sweaters just yet, it is time to start working in some lighter layers and less heavy pieces.

This week’s Goodwill gem, a darling little purse in a timeless style and nude hue, is just the right kind of piece to be pairing with your lighter spring wardrobe additions. Its petite size and simple lines gives it an elegant and ladylike look, while the light beige tone will be lovely next to bright, bold spring and summer colors, like blush pinks, sunshiny yellows, and lively greens.

Keep it chic.

This stunning nude handbag will look fantastic next to an array of vibrant colors, but it will also look equally elegant when paired with other neutral, go-to pieces in your wardrobe. For a totally sophisticated (but entirely effortless) casual look that will have you channeling your French girl charm, try stepping out in your favorite pair of slim-fitting jeans and a loosely fitted tee in white and navy stripes (or in another classic and neutral combo, like black and white). This pretty purse, in its nude hue, is still different enough from the darker, bolder pattern of the top to stand out and make a statement – an extremely classy and understated one.
