Nasty Gal Lexie Crossbody Bag

This ‘Lexie’ bag has every ingredient that makes for an essential—an item you can go to without fail when you’re in a rush or don’t know what to wear. The black and nude color combination creates depth but remains neutral, while the parallel zippers add a visual element that takes this classic design towards edgy. This purse is a true hybrid that can adapt to anyone’s personal style. Plus, the proportion is ideal for fitting what you need and avoiding what you don’t.

I had to pull my hair back midway through shooting this post because it was so windy my face kept getting covered (#eastcoastbloggerproblems). It was a full-blown Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz dilemma. But, one of my favorite new ways to wear it is in a deep side part with the opposite side pinned behind my ear. I just think it’s a little edgy and interesting. It’s also a great way to show off the Bing Bang delicate ear cuff I can’t seem to stop wearing (it makes it look like I have three cartilage piercings when I want to feel punky).

This grey 525 America sweater is one of my favorite pieces for fall. It’s soft, has the perfect high-low cut and the billowy sleeves are flattering. If you’re searching for a cropped knit to wear all day every day, trust me, this is it.
