STYLE STORY: THE MUST-HAVE BAG


There are few things better than a versatile handbag. Am I right, ladies?

It's so essential to have an everyday bag especially if you are constantly on the go. All the handbags I've ever owned never really translated well from school to work to weekend-wear AND to a night out. That is, until Jordana Paige designed my new favorite go-to bag that translates beautifully for every & any occasion!

Jordana Paige's Cora bag is everything you wanted and more! I know you will fall in love with each brilliant detail of this bag. The storage compartments are plentiful and spacious, with a special pocket for a tablet! But my absolute favorite detail is that the exterior pocket can be detached and used as a wristlet! What! Hence, why I have labeled this "The Must-have Bag".

You can get this bag and any other Jordana Paige design for 10% OFF with code GIS0515 (Code expires 5/1/15!!)

This weekend I'm taking my Cora bag for a casual day in the city. Since Chicago has been gracing us with such wonderful blistering cold weather, I'll be layering with this comfy sweatshirt from Unlock Hope.


I love the message, "Love relentlessly," since it's pretty radical. I know I've caught myself picking and choosing who to love especially when it's someone who is hard to love. But "relentless" means "continuous, constant, unyielding, persistent." Love is patient, kind, not envious, not boastful or prideful, not dishonoring, not self-seeking, not easily angered...can you imagine how beautiful the world would be if we loved others relentlessly? It's not easy to love like that, but it's something I'm learning!
