pattern mixing plus new bag and watch

Hi friends! Happy Monday! Today’s post I’m showcasing two of my birthday gifts (that I gave myself because I’m a diva like that and I like to treat myself) AND mixing fun prints.

I found this lovely Dooney & Bourke briefcase from the Alto collection at a strange, large thrift store in Winston-Salem. It was a bit more than what I wanted to spend but as a bag aficionado, I couldn’t part with it.

The Nixon Kensington watch was a little treat to myself from Piperlime. I had gift cards plus a birthday coupon so I got it for $15. Sad to hear though, that Gap Inc is closing Piperlime in April. I had no idea that the store wasn’t performing well. Anyway, I’m loving the sleek watch and am loving its larger size.

  1. Happy birthday to you! I love your diva sensibilities– I always give myself gifts as well 🙂 Although you spent more than you expected on that briefcase, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment! It looks very very well constructed, and the style is timeless. Great find!


  2. TREAT YO SELF on your birthday girl!!! It’s the one time of year when it’s socially acceptable, although we both know that small gifts for ourselves throughout the year are also necessary 🙂 You picked out some great stuff, and you look absolutely beautiful! The bag and watch are so classic. I’m jealous! And the patterns go nicely together! And I love the shoes. GAH there is nothing I don’t love about this.

    -Your rambly friend,

    1. Dear rambly friend, you aren’t that rambly, promise. As we all know, I love to treat yo-self (myself) 🙂 I love the bag and I’ve been carrying it to work with my laptop in it:) Keep thrifting girl, you’ll find some cool stuff! Thanks so much for the kind words!!! xo
