mad love for designer handbags+ supporting women around the globe (and psst! a GIVEAWAY!)

 oversized tee: c/o Lamixx /shorts: GAP / gypsy wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes / guava earrings: c/o Le Mode Accessories / bag: c/o amykathryn bags 

so i am your typical girl when it comes to shoes and bags. i loooouuuurve them, especially big and colorful ones like this one i'm rocking around town. the pop of magenta pink makes my eyes go ga-ga and the number of pockets that line it would make any neat freak...well, freak!

and my favorite part? amykathryn's My Bag is Her Bag program where they support women in poverty around the globe by teaching them the trade of making handbags on their own! in purchasing their clutches and bags, you support these incredible women and their families. 

{meet amykathryn.}

amykathryn a designer handbag brand that mixes animal-friendly faux leathers and organic cotton canvas.  Each season features a beautiful new custom print design on the cotton canvas.  Designer Amy Hall is inspired by nature, her travels around the globe and all kinds of art, old & new.  Fans love her bags because they are colorful, unique, and always very functional & stylish.  amykathryn recently started My Bag Is Her Bag, in which women around the world are supported and empowered by making handbags for the amykathryn line.
