There's no denying that winter is upon us...and it's cold...like really cold. Like I wish my dog would learn to use the restroom, so I wouldn't have to take him outside. Although most days the freezing temperatures make me want to just curl up in a pair of sweats with my softest blanket, at some point we all have to bundle up and head outside! And if we are going through all the trouble of putting on pants with actual zippers and buttons....then we may as well look cute doing it! I bought this coat last year when I was working at Nordstrom. It was one of those items that came in, I immediately was modeling it in front of the store mirror, and two seconds later I was in line purchasing it. I absolutely love the red and black plaid and the way the hem swings lower in the back. And obviously the perfect coat deserves the perfect handbag to compliment it. Enter this gorgeously understated black leather Rebecca Minkoff bag. I am always heading somewhere...so I basically live out of my car...and my handbag! This oversized tote has more than enough room for everything you need - wallet, cellphone, make-up, snacks...you get the drift...it's BIG! Stay warm friends!
