My favorite souvenirs

Top: Ann Taylor (similar & similar), Jeans: Express - 40% off now!, Belt: old, Boots: old, Bag: gifted from India

I love traveling. I mean who doesn't? When I was little every time we traveled somewhere my mom would collect either a magnet or a Christmas tree ornament from the new place we had visited. I tried to continue her tradition but in a different way. My new tradition is to get an accessory from a new place, a new favorite souvenir. I have a few requirements; I prefer it to be smaller, colorful and something that represents the culture as much as possible. I like to have a little taste of that country and culture with me here in NYC. This clutch is exactly that. Colorful, culturally rich and the perfect size. My sweet friend Jasmine gifted me this amazing handbag from her family's native home. India! I've always been in love with the bright and vibrant color and styles of Indian clothing and accessories and was absolutely in love when she gave it to me! I found it to be the greatest accessory to this all black look. 

On my off days, I tend to wear tons of black which is ironic because I find color so visually stimulating and love it so much. My boyfriend can't understand and always prefers to see me in colorful pieces. He says I always look happier wearing color LOL 

Anyway...these are my new favorite black ripped jeans and can I just share my insane excitement that Express now has petites! I ordered 2 pairs of jeans from their petite collection and they fit like a dream. I get so excited when stores expand their lines to include petite sizes. Each new expansion feels like a victory for a shorty like me! Does anyone else feel the same way?


 Hope you're enjoying this lovely Thursday!
