Rose Pink Stripes + Saint Laurent Sac de Jour

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 Trendlee, 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. Trendlee gets new stock in weekly, so I’ve curated some favorites on there similar to what’s in my own closet, including Chanel flaps, Celine totes, and several other designer classics. You can take 5% off handbags site-wide with code EXTRAPETITE5.

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.

    Jean, could you tell us where you got the jacket? If it's an older piece, do you think you could share some links to similar styles? Thanks!

    A little of topic, but — do you have any advice on how to travel with long necklaces/statement necklaces? Thanks!

  • Serena September 3, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    Hi Jean! What are your favorite sales for this labor day weekend?

    Hi Ashley! I'm wearing my usual size 2 in H

  • Jean September 5, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    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!

  • Jean September 5, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    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.

  • Jean September 5, 2016 at 8:59 pm

    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.

  • Jean September 5, 2016 at 9:00 pm

    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.

  • IT Girl September 6, 2016 at 12:48 am

    Thanx for your suggestions! Will check them out 🙂

  • Neha September 6, 2016 at 2:17 am

    Hi! Do you have a link to that skirt or something similar?

    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? 🙂

  • Anonymous September 9, 2016 at 7:28 am

    Love this skirt 🙂 pretty 🙂

    Naelle from paris..!

  • Unknown September 11, 2016 at 8:14 am

    Hi Jean,

    Where can I find that sleeveless top? Feels like it would go with everything.

  • Melissa Bodo September 11, 2016 at 8:15 am

    Hi Jean,

    Does Ann Taylor still have that top? I love it! Thanks

  • Sarika September 12, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    Do you think the new york and company ribbed sweater mock neck shell will work? Also will h&m; blazer with black button work?

  • Sarika September 12, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    H&m; fitted jacket, textured jacket, textured weave jacket are the 3 available.

  • Chloe Tang September 14, 2016 at 1:06 am

    Really love the Rose pink color of this Saint Laurent bag!!!!
