i’m wearing: tart tank, loft animal print shorts (check your local store), steve madden wedges (not shown), h&m fringe necklace, house of harlow mixed metal stack chevron rings and my new kooba kristen tote.

are you guys tired of hearing me complain about this heat wave? we have been getting a little marine layer in the morning but then it has been right back up in the 90’s and ridiculously humid with overcast skies. that is like a triple whammy. ok…enough about the weather. let’s talk about my new bag!!! every few years i get a new quality bag that i know is going to last because i am not a big purse changer (unless it is date night and i don’t want to carry a suitcase to dinner). i had never heard of kooba bags  until i moved to nyc and a girl that i worked with introduced me. come to think of it, she also introduced me to shopbop and david yurman jewelry. i’m not sure if i should blame her or thank her. =)

      Great look! And great bag, especially for the price. You usually don’t get a lot of bag for that money, if you don’t want plastic…

    Your shorts are stunning! I love leopard print when it is done right, and I must say, you have done it right, girlie;)

    Jenn, I love the whole outfit. Looks chic but comfy too. Exactly what we all want!!

    And I love the new webpage look. It is much easier to read your post and what you list you are wearing. Good job!

    I love your new kooba bag! I also bought one for Fall too, the Camden Satchel. I love it except I wish the shoulder strap was removable, it’s only adjustable.

    It’s cold in Chicago…74 today, absolutely too early for such a low temp! Hopefully your heatwave will come by. Love the layout! Enjoy your wknd Jen.

    Yeah, how amazing is that bag?! Perfect timing too as we transition to fall…not that you can tell by the weather (consistently upper 90s and humid here in Houston too…ugh). Loving your fringe necklace!

    I’m not much of a bag changer indeed, except maybe between seasons I change. Love the lil leopard shorts on you! And I hate the heat too!

    What fun shorts! I always shy away from animal print but these seems so wearable. You look great!

    Beautiful necklace. It makes a statement without being all bulky and making your neck sweat. Perfect for summer!
