Once again my outfit plans were foiled by the weather! This weekend I went to South Moon Under's 1st Anniversary event with Lydia. I was hoping the weather would be nice (aka not raining or snowing) so I could wear my fun printed Carven skirt (seen here) with a tee, suede jacket, tights and sandals to show off my second Orox Leather Co. handbag! Unfortunately, it was flurrying/raining all day and really cold, so I had to resort to wearing a dress with an over-sized sweater and I look a little dumpy...not pleased.  On the plus side, I had gotten my hair done on Thursday night at a party and was amazed to find that it wasn't totally ruined by Saturday morning, so I let it have one more day before taking it out and washing my hair, ha ha.

Other than that, the day was great! I broke a promise to myself and bought a pair of pants (only $23!), had some Chinese food for lunch and finished reading The Cuckoo's Calling.

Back to the bag. How adorable is this Merces Petite purse Orox Leather sent? It's made of the same leather as the laptop sleeve I shared on Friday. It has an adjustable double knot shoulder strap so you can wear it short or as a crossbody. There is even a little sleeve compartment inside perfect for storing a cell phone (my iPhone 6 fit great!)

Dress: Diane von Furstenerg (Coco's on the Green), Sweater: Inis Crafts (Marshalls), Boots: Grandma's, Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet, Lumo 'Rope', Bag c/o Orox Leather

Today I'm featuring a beautiful piece from Orox Leather Co., based in Portland, Oregon. Orox sells a full line of American made bags, belts and small leather goods, crafted by hand in their Portland workshop. They use only the highest quality, American­ sourced leather and other sustainable materials. Orox is a proud leader in sustainable consumerism, standing by their low­ impact production process and quality US made products that will last a lifetime.

We love handcrafting exceptional leather goods that last just about forever. Perhaps the only thing that makes us happier is seeing our products well used, cherished, and passed on to the next generation. As a fourth generation family business, we’re in it for the long haul. We’re very excited about 2015: creating new products, discovering new materials, and sharing our vision and craft with more people around the world.
Orox kindly sent me their Macbook sleeve in tan to style for the blog! I chose it because it can do double duty as a clutch, which is how I will use it most of the time! You can tell the piece is skillfully handmade, the quality is excellent. I can just picture this a few years from now, beautifully worn in and weathered from lots of love.

The leather was giving me a Ralph Lauren-esque feeling, so I decided to style it with a Lauren Ralph Lauren dress. Unfortunately it was REALLY cold when Lydia and I met up to take these pictures so I improvised and turned the dress into a top and wore it with jeans.

Make sure to come back next week when I'll be featuring another bag from Orox!

After yesterday's outfit it was back to cold weather again! Mother Nature clearly cannot make up her mind. At least I'm getting to wear my chunkier sweaters more.  Like this one, super warm and one of my favorite splurges. I don't wear it as much as I should, will have to rectify that next year and wear it at least once a week! I'm also wearing my newest bargain - a pair of Diane von Furstenberg flats that I scored for $18 at Marshalls, regular price: $250!

Cardigan: Burberry Brit (Net-a-Porter Sale), Sweater: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Pyo' (Saks Off 5th), Jeans: Free People (eBay), Flats: Diane von Furstenberg 'Emma' (Marshalls)

I wore this last week on a slightly warmer day when having holes in my pants wasn't an insane idea. Sadly the next day it was cold again and the following day we had snow. On the first day of Spring. When will the madness stop?!  This is one of my favorite sweaters, I've worn it so much that the sleeves are permanently bent at my elbow and the sleeves have shrunk a bit because I stupidly put it in the dryer once.

Sweater: Madewell, Jeans: Current/Elliott, Flats c/o Joie

I've been getting rather tired of the snow so it was a nice change to have some rain a couple weekends ago. Surely that means Spring and flowers are not far off! On this day I did some grocery shopping in the morning, read a book by the fire and then did some "fun" shopping with my mom! Woohoo!

Sweater: Cocogio, Tee: Banana Republic, Jeans: Current/Elliott (The Outnet), Boots c/o Joules, Umbrella: Totes (Kohl's)
