Friday Favorites!

Hi everyone! Happy FRIDAY!! Hope you all are doing well. I recently had a hair appointment and decided to bring up my length (my stylist cut about 2-3 inches – much needed!). Plus, I opted to go back to a side-swept bang. Some days I feel like the below illustration captures me perfectly! lol Can anyone else relate? 😀

Talking favorites today, so let’s kick things off with this fabulous satchel from Old Navy. Originally $39.99, the cognac (also a black option) is on sale for only $19! The third option is a powder pink, which is on sale for $28.

Don’t let the size of this handbag deceive you. It can hold a lot more than you may think. It can accommodate a full-size wallet, phone, and a lot of your essentials without things getting lost in an abyss.

Outfit Details: Faux Leather Dome Shaped Satchel // Unfortunately my top from Loft is no longer available. // Modern Slim Pocket White Skinny Jeans (wearing 25)

It has double handles, a zip top closure, an interior patch pocket plus a zip pocket. It’s cute and keeps your look polished and pulled together. Love it!

How adorable is this bicycle sweater from Loft! It’s a fine knit sweater with 3/4″ sleeves. It is not sheer at all. It has side slits and ribbing detail on the crew neckline, cuffs and hemline. It’s a neutral sweater, but has pops of pinks, golden yellow, orange and white flowers in the basket. Great option as we transition to fall.

In regards to sizing, I’m wearing my normal XS, but I think whether you go with your normal Loft size or go up a size will depend on your proportions and desired fit. Most of the reviewers have suggested sizing up one size. I personally didn’t feel the need to do so. But, something to consider if you’re thinking of purchasing this top. This lightweight sweater can be dressed up or down. I tucked it into dress pants for a more work appropriate look. But, it would certainly look cute with shorts and sandals.

Let’s talk tech for a minute. For our upcoming vacation, I don’t plan to bring a camera. I’ll just use my iPhone camera. To prevent a low or dead battery situation during the most inopportune time, I was in search for a device that can easily power-up my phone quickly and easily. Enter the Luxtude PowerEasy Portal Charger.

Product Details: Luxtude PowerEasy Ultra Slim Portable Charger for iPhone

This charger is awesome! It’s very thin and compact and fits nicely into a side pocket of my handbag. It has a short built-in cord to charge your Apple device. The built-in cord is short, but pliable so that you can stack your iPhone on top of it to charge (so long as the cord remains plugged into your phone).

It comes in two color options: pink and black. It is made for iPhone 5 and newer models, plus the iPad Pro, Mini, Air and iPod Touch (5th and 6th generations). It charges your device lightening fast! This is the perfect travel companion. Highly, highly recommend it!

If you have an Android phone, the Yoobao Portable Charger received good reviews and looks quite comparable to the Luxtude. This could be a good option.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blog world. XO ~ Michelle
