new month + new adventures of the Le Mode Accessories Traveling Bag!!

tee: can't remember / jeans: GAP / shoes: c/o Blowfish Shoes / glasses: Urban Outfitters 
neon bracelets: c/o In Honor of Design / necklace: Le Mode / satchel: Le Mode Accessories

as weirded out as i am that summer has flown by as fast as it did and that today is the first day of a new month, i am looking forward to so many things in August. new months are kind of like new days, new weeks, and new years - like a blank canvas, ready for something fresh! i'm excited about new shop goals, one last road trip with the family, visits from relatives and Ryan, and more wedding planning! i personally plan to soak up every single bit of this month.

and speaking of kicking off a brand new month, i have the privilege of kicking off Le Mode Accessories' brand new Traveling Bag adventures! you might remember a couple traveling bags making their way across blog world (visiting Sydney, Kendi, and Chelsea to name a few lovelies). when Adrianna (creator of Le Mode, who seriously is the sweetest thing ever!) contacted me about kicking this project off, i told her heeeeck, yes!? i mean, come on - see that bag up there? how could you say no to that? no, you cannot. it's roomy with the coolest inner lining and the neutral leather straps make me swoon. and it actually comes with a sweet shoulder strap but i always have a tendency of taking them off - so i modeled it without it. (with other bloggers following up with it, i'm sure you'll see one or two rock out the strap.)


and because i'm in love with this bag so much, i'm really sad to let it go.
i think i'm gonna need one for myself - to keep. forever.
it's making it's next pit stop right on over to Jen of Jen Loves Kev,
so be sure to track the bag as it keeps making its away around blog world! 
it's totally gonna be so fun to see how everyone styles it up.

and as you are swooning over this bag, be sure to enter the Le Mode giveaway for a $25 gift card if you haven't yet! just one more day left, folks - so have at it! and if you are a blogger, do not miss out on the Yellow + Savvy Design giveaway!

much love.
[happy monday, friend.]
