I know I just wrote about totes in my most recent building blocks post, but I thought I would share with you the bag that was in the image I used for the post (image source via See (Anna) Jane). I’m slightly obsessed with the styling of the shot – the ripped jeans, hydrangeas, the silver shoes – they all make that shot so perfect. The most perfect piece of it though? That tote from Cuyana! I love the look of the leather, the simplicity of the shape, and the sweet gold monogram. A meld of prep and casual.

While browsing Cuyana’s site I read about their philosophy and decided I’m a fan for life. Their less is more outlook is something I really strive toward in my daily life. I definitely get carried away at times because I love to shop, love a good sale, and sometimes just can’t say no, but with all that I do tend to think I live pretty simply and delight in the small things in life.

Also, if you have some time check out their Lean Closet Movement. Inspired? Head to my wardrobe consulting page and let’s make it happen.

I sourced some similar totes below for your perusal. Happy shopping!shopthepost
