Grungy Green & Sparkly Bling

 

 
Oopsies, "grungy" green has been making quite the appearance on the blog lately! I think it's a great color to take your wardrobe into fall so that's probably why I've been gravitating towards it.
 
 With the grunge color of pants, combined with the leather, I had to "girly it up" with some sparkly bling!
 These pants were another purchase from when I was in Chicago recently. I love, love, love the leather and zipper details. They're also the perfect length to wear with ankle strap heels like these.
 
 Tank: Express | Pants: F21 [also love these that will be on their way to my door step soon] | Earrings: F21 [similar here, here, here] | Necklace: Ebay [similar here], Vintage [similar here & here] | Rings: H&M | Bracelets: ILY Couture, J.Crew Factory, t+j Designs, Vintage [similar here] | Clutch: Malibu Bows via Etsy | Heels: Zara

Did everyone make their way to Target to scoop up some 3.1 Phillip Lim pieces yesterday?! I got a late start but was happy upon arrival when it appeared that I was probably the first to scope out the collection.

I ended up buying this bag, and then went back [because I'm a psycho] an hour later, and bought this one. I'll have to admit, when I first saw the mini satchel, I thought to myself, "Aw, that's so cute ... for a seven year old girl..!" because the bag is so miniature. Then I left the store with just the black tote in hand and couldn't stop thinking about the mini satchel. I've seen other girls with the Pashli Mini Satchel and always drooled over it, but seeing the bag in person didn't have the same affect on me.

Just so I wouldn't regret not buying the mini satchel and then it selling out, I raced back to Target to give the bag a second chance. I stood in front of a mirror and tried the purse on with the cross-body strap and instantly had a change of mind. It no longer looked like it was made for a child. The next question: which color do I need? Black? Or taupe?

After about ten minutes of looking like a dork in front of the mirror and texting pictures to my sister asking which bag she liked best, I settled on taupe because it's such a rich, pretty color and I have nothing else like it! I also tried on a few things, including the boom sweatshirt that I wanted, but didn't fall in-love with anything so I passed.

What did you guys walk away with?!
