Bring Your Beau To Work

When my fellow blogger-friend Meggie from Meggie July contacted me about doing a collaboration regarding our Kate Spade 2 Park Avenue Beau bags I couldn't possibly turn her down. The plan was to come up with a workplace style that revolved around our Beaus. I purchased my Beau last October after much hemming and hawing. It was definitely a big investment and I wanted to be a smart shopper but I eventually convinced myself knowing that the classic black leather bag would never go out of style. I've definitely gotten my money worth since I made the purchase and I was excited to feature it in this collaboration.
Now onto the styling of the bag. Black isn't necessarily something you would associate with the summer months so I knew that I wanted to add a pop of color with this fun Vince Camuto skirt. It was very hot the week I wore this outfit so despite my office being freezing, I had to be sleeveless. Luckily I always keep a blanket and a jean jacket in my office in case I get a chill. I tend to gravitate towards outfits that transition well from out of the office to after-work drinks. It's important that I buy pieces that are versatile so I can mix and match.

Necklace Ralph Lauren (similar) // Sunglasses Ray-Ban

Here is a sneak peek of how Meggie incorporated her Beau bag into a work outfit, be sure to check out Meggie's blog to see how she styled her gorgeous cream Beau bag. I'm not going to lie, when I saw that she purchased the ostrich egg and cream version of my bag, I contemplated buying a second one for myself because they bag is so pretty and perfect for summer.
