Go, Go, Go!
This summer we did a lot of traveling. As a family we took a road trip stopping in West Texas, Albuquerque, and ultimately the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Next, the hubs and I took a quick date night/day date to San Antonio and Austin. And finally, I traveled to my neck of the woods, Northern California and San Francisco, for a little leisure/work time.
The Leather Common Denominators
Well, as I was editing pictures for the blog, I found a common denominator throughout all of my pictures. There were two pieces that I clearly couldn’t live without, and found myself wearing over and over again– my Mamuye Tote and Simple Leather Choker by FASHIONABLE.
The Bottomless Leather Tote
Before traveling to the Grand Canyon, I knew I needed a durable, yet beautiful tote that would have to match all vacation outfits, plus be able to hold all traveling necessities like… baby wipes, makeup (for those blog touch ups), pull-ups, extra toddler clothes, bottled water, snacks, camera, phone–you name it! I had the ultimate mom bag goin’ on! Ha! The best part (don’t judge me) was the rich leathery smell! Talk about leather! No, talk about QUALITY leather!
The Everyday Leather Choker
Another leather accessory I wore on default was my Simple Leather Choker in cognac–the
same color as my tote. This choker’s simplicity is what makes it so beautiful. I can literally match this choker with almost everything casual, which is why I think I wore it so much! It just seemed to finish my outfits so effortlessly. Now, would you believe me if I told you it was only $20 bucks? Yep! I’ll be purchasing my next one in black, thank you very much!
Fashion with a Cause
If you love companies that are all about great causes, you’ll love FASHIONABLE! This is
another company that gives back to the community on both a local and global level. With
FASHIONABLE you’re not just investing in a quality piece, but you’re also investing in a
heroic woman (see their about page here). “When a woman is empowered with work to do, whether in the home or office, she not only experiences the joy of developing a skill, she also impacts her family and community.” ( FASHIONABLE).
Take a look at my photos below… You’ll immediately see that I’m crazy over my leather goods from FASHIONABLE. I’ve taken both my Mamuye Tote and Simple Leather Choker with me from the West Coast to Texas! Ha! Even with my teacher summer vacation coming to an end, I will continue to use both of these pieces because they’re timeless and perfect for all seasons.
