Rose Pink Stripes + Saint Laurent Sac de Jour

Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Small borrowed from Rebag, H&M; skirt (current), Ann Taylor top, Kate Spade pumps

Happy first day of September! It’s starting to cool down around here, and I’ve been slowly transitioning my outfits to richer hues and weightier textures. I can tell rose pink is going to be one of my favorite colors this season, like a Fall version of the soft blush I’ve been loving so much. Here I also paired a satin-finish skirt with a knit sweater, and topped it with a woven jacket. I love the combo of varying textures, and can’t wait for it to be cool enough to add suede and faux fur to the mix!

For this post I’m partnering again with Rebag, an online boutique that offers authenticated, pre-owned designer handbags. I’ve personally had a smooth process both purchasing and returning with them before, and also heard positive feedback from a few of you after my first post. Rebag gets new stock in weekly including Chanel flaps, Celine totes, and several other designer classics.

This is my first time toting around the Saint Laurent sac de jour so I wanted to share some quick thoughts. For lovers of structured bags, the style is classic and structured, with elements that take inspiration from some of Hermes’ signature totes. The sides are accordion-style so if you un-snap the two tabs on either the front or back, you can open the sides up wider to a roomy interior cavity. There are two large zippered compartments and two open pockets inside, plus the bag comes with a detachable (non-adjustable) strap for wearing on your shoulder.

This bag also comes in several material types – the one I borrowed here is in a beautiful rose pink smooth leather with suede lining. Both the leather and lining feel thick and sturdy with lots of interior detailing, and as a result the bag is on the heavier side. If you’ve tried on a Céline luggage tote in mini, I would say the weight feels comparable. The Sac de Jour comes in 4 sizes: nano, baby, small, and large in that ascending order – for reference the one I’m carrying here is the small.

    Hi Jean! I love your blog, I've been following you for some time and I want to know your opinion about.. tights. I think you don't wear them with skirts or dresses (sheer ones) and you still look stunning. However, it sometimes feels odd not to wear them, especially when you work in the office. I think many women would like to read your thoughts on this, so would you consider writing a post about tights? 🙂

    Hi! I use my Goyard totes all the time with sneakers and jeans or leggings. I also like the reversible large faux-leather totes that are very popular, sold at Nordstrom or Urban Outfitters.

    Sorry for the late response, Serena, but there aren't many good ones! Most are just extra discounts on top of sale items, and I'm eager for sales on new Fall merchandise.

    For long, thin / delicate necklaces, I thread them through a straw (for slightly thicker necklaces, you can buy wide straws too) to avoid tangling with other necklaces. For statement necklaces, I often store them in individual zip lock baggies to keep the air out so I just use those same baggies to transport them. You can also use a small, long towel and roll up necklaces – lay 1 necklace flat on the towel, roll it once, lay another one on, roll it again, and so on.

    Hi! It's from H&M; as well. They still have the same collar-less design but I haven't seen it in white recently. I'll keep my eyes peeled for similar white blazers!
