Style: hoop purses

style trend comment

Style: hoop purses | see all the picks at

Theory introduced a new handbag line last fall and the Whitney bag has become quite popular. What’s not to like about a bag that can hold all the essentials and can be worn as either a crossbody or a clutch that dangles off your wrist with its simplistic hoop detail? There have been quite a number of inspired designs as a result of this. I’ve rounded up some great options for you below!

Black hoop handle purse {comes in pink, too!}

Tan leather hoop pouch {4 colors}

Faux-suede ring bag

Red ring convertible crossbody bag

Black embossed ring bag

Brown hoop purse {11 color/styles!}

Monthly budget finds under $50

Budget finds under $50 |

During the winter months, I tend to live in neutrals. But, I am looking forward to Spring and to help make the easy transition, I’m opting for neutral pieces but appropriate for the warmer weather. Here are some budget friendly finds that can also help you make that transition:

Black wide leg pants: How cute is the belting detail? Pair it a fitted top to balance out the bottom and pointed heels to elongate the legs.

Petal chandelier earrings: these would be perfect to pair with an otherwise neutral look to dress it up.

White and black contrast shirt with embroidered collar: I’m always on the lookout for a white blouse since you can pair it with anything. The contrast piping and collar detail add some fun to the top, and gives it a more sophisticated feel.

Navy herringbone scarf
: if you’re looking for one scarf to add to your closet, this might be the one. It’s a classic look overall: blue, white, and stripes – what more can you ask for?

Black accented ankle boots: these boots are only $32 but they look so much more expensive because of the metallic accent at the toe.

Military-inspired wide leg pants: the military look is going strong and these pants are perfect. They’re under $20 and meet all the chic factors: wide leg, metallic button accents, slimming!

Black lace heels: I bought my first lace heels from Banana Republic (last see here) and fell in love! The lace detail adds so much to an outfit. Since they are only available in grey, these black ones would be a great 2nd pair for me (and not to mention, they’re under $20!)

Pink ring purse: this bag is the perfect shade to prepare for the spring season and its versatility as a handbag and crossbody make it worth the buy!

Striped hem pencil skirt: can you believe this Vince Camuto stripe pencil skirt is only $24? Perfect for a daytime look – keep it classic by pairing with a white silk or cotton button down.

The moment I spotted this top, I knew it would be the perfect piece for Fall. Is it a tee? Or a sweater? It’s actually both! The relaxed fit is perfect and the heavier material makes it warm enough that another sweater or coat isn’t required. I paired this wonderful find with a pencil skirt and gave it a pop of color with these wedge sandals. Have you found any new additions to your Fall wardrobe?
