Forever 21 Haul

Happy Saturday everyone! Ok, I really can’t believe Christmas is less than a week away. The holidays always make me thankful for my friends, family, and all the good things I have in life. It is always frustrating to hear people complaining, or being miserable during this season (or in general for that matter). So, I wanted to share a little motivation for this lovely afternoon…

As we head into the new year, my mindset is positive vibes only. Positivity is beauty after all!

I digress. Back to my latest haul! In between last minute Christmas shopping, gift wrapping, and all around holiday craziness, I wanted to share my bag/jewelry purchases from Forever 21. I purchased 3 bags, a necklace, and lots of new midi rings all for less than $100…thank you Black Friday deals and free shipping!

Forever 21 has stepped up their bag game in recent years. I have gotten a lot of bags that look much more expensive than they actually are. The quality for the price is pretty decent as well.

The first bag I got is the black Faux Leather Weekender. If I’m being honest, this is a Christmas gift for my mom…but let’s just say I may be borrowing it from time to time. I’ve noticed some “weekender” bags end up being an oversized purse, but this bag has lots of room. We’re going on vacation in a week (!!!) and I thought this bag would be perfect for flying, and fitting all my mom’s travel essentials for the plane ride.

The second bag is the black Faux Leather Duffle. Also another purchase I made with upcoming travel in mind! It is a tad bit roomier than the weekender, but I prefer a duffle sized bag and this one looks so sleek.

My third and final bag purchase is the tan Pebbled Faux Leather Tote. I like this bag a lot, the faux leather material is actually super soft and the bag has lots of room inside. My only complaint is that I wish there were more interior pockets!

I also made a few random jewelry purchases including this gold Mesh Bib Necklace…

And this set of silver Etched Midi Rings…

I like the set of Etched Midi Rings because it came with a couple regular sized rings, and I like the contrast between the two. P.S- I am wearing OPI “Lincoln Park After Dark” matte polish in these pictures if you’re wondering.

I also wanted to share my outfit details. I randomly threw this look together this morning while getting ready to run errands, and I have to say I like the way it turned out.

My “Forever After” shirt is from Old Navy, which I got on sale for $4.99 a couple weeks back. Major score. The faux fur vest is Ann Taylor Loft and it also has the best knit houndstooth style detail on the back…

I paired these two pieces with black leggings, grey suede boots by “Studio Works,” and a gold bangle which I believe may also be from Forever 21 a while back.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, and getting their last minute holiday preparations finished up!
