Over time, I’ve learned to trust my instincts when it comes to style (and a lot of other things too!), and avoid over-thinking or over-complicating an outfit. I like to keep my clothing simple, and rely on accessories to zhush up the look.
This post is sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue and ShopStyle. All ideas and opinions are my own.
When Saks Fifth Avenue asked me to select and style a couple of accessories that are included in their Sneak Peek Sale, I was totally on board! I chose a bag and shoes that both have the kind of modern, relaxed style that I love.
This is a look I’d wear for a casual evening out (and most of them ARE casual) here in LA.
I can’t begin to tell you the number of times I’ve wished I had a little metallic bag that wasn’t formal or fussy and wasn’t a clutch. This is it! (Gifted) It’s incredibly lightweight, a nice size, and very functional. It can be carried worn over the shoulder or crossbody, thanks to the optional longer strap.
Ankle boots are one of my favorite footwear styles. I’ll wear them almost year-round. I’m always on the lookout for non-black options, and was so happy to spot these from 3.1 Phillip Lim. (Gifted.) That nice low heel makes them a comfortable choice. (They run true-to-size.)
In addition to major designer labels, Saks carries a wide selection of the Contemporary brands that suit my more casual style. The Sneak Peek Sale is a great opportunity to save up to 40% on designer styles that rarely go on sale. Saks offers free shipping too, with code FREESHIP. If there’s a store near you, can also arrange for in-store pick-up. (Speaking of stores, if you’re in New York you MUST visit their shoe department! It’s amazing and their service friendly and fabulous.)
