Sunny Disposition

My trusty Kate Spade work bag has gone everywhere with me.  My dad bought it for me when I was in law school and now it holds all my goodies and court files. Ordinarily, I would have worn a handbag that perfectly matched this outfit but I don't always perfectly match when going to work. This bag is so functional that I don't even think about whether or not it "matches" that day or not. I call it my Mary Poppins bag but I'm constantly reminding my husband that it isn't a backpack as he hands me tons of papers and crap to stuff in my bag for him.  Maybe I should get him a man bag?  Hmmm... :-)  If I'm a little slow answering emails/comments please accept my apologies.  I have big things going on at work but will be back to my old self after Wednesday!

Sweater: The Limited  /  Skirt: Loft  /  Shoes: Aldo  /  Jewelry: Necklace gifted, H&M, David Yurman  /  Bag: Kate Spade


  1. I think the bag adds a nice contrast:)! Love the yellow sweater and polka dot skirt! Great look Maria!

  2. I am often way too lazy to switch my purse. I do have a work bag that never changes. It's a black Coach diaper bag that I love.

    Love your yellow sweater!


  3. You're so pretty Maria! You look great in yellow! I love the bag, its classic. I actually love the look of mismatched accessories, especially shoes and bags. You gotta go with what works!

  4. So classy & pretty! I love you in yellow!!

  5. That yellow sweater looks so pretty on you! There is nothing better than a large tote, and that one is so classic and versatile!

  6. I love yellow- it's my favorite color! So jealous of that bag, it's such a perfect "everyday" bag.

  7. This is lovely. I love the sweater and pleated skirt look.

  8. Love the skirt! I have been eying a Kate Spade bag at TJ Maxx for probably a month. I FINALLY told myself I couldn't live without it and it was gone. :( I always love a nude shoe!

  9. That's such a classic bag, it goes with everything. What a gret piece to have and hold on to too.

  10. Ha! I carry the same coach bag like everyday! It big and functional! Love this outfit! The yellow is so pretty!

  11. Wow love you look without the sunnies on Maria....you should do that more often!!!


  12. Hi there!

    I can attest to that! I think every lady has that one bag that fits everything, but doesn't exactly go with everything!

    I adore your outfit, polka dots are my favorite print and these are wonderful!

    Great blog!

  14. I'm obsessed with your polka dot skirt! And I love gray and yellow together. You look so pretty!

  15. That yellow is so gorgeous on you! I love this outfit. I carry the same bag to work with me everyday. I cannot be changing it each day. I'll just switch out my purses to go with my outfit, if I go somewhere after work.

  16. Look! You have eyes!! ;)

    Love this look.



  17. Hi there Maria. My name is Ada, very nice to meet you. I just found your blog yesterday and have been reading along the way till I got here. I must say for an attorney you have beautiful, elegant, colorful, chic style. Today I love the polka-dotted skirt paired with the bright yellow sweater. Yellow is definitely a color that looks great on you. And you cannot go wrong with pearls and nude pumps, either. By the way The Limited & Loft are two of my most favorite stores and I love their sales, too.

    So hopefully you will stop by my blog, check out my style and follow me as well. I appreciate meeting new, fun, stylish bloggers through blogging and having their support as I support them as well. Thanks a lot, Ada. =)


  18. Your skirt is the cutest, love the dots!

  19. Yellow is for sure your color! You look great!



  20. You are so cute WITHOUT the sunglasses - love to see those big brown eyes more often :)

  21. I know I commented earlier, but I just picked you for an award over at my blog!


  22. Hey, it's good to see your gorgeous peepers!! Don't you love how a classic bag can stand the test of time? Good bags and polka dots... :)


  23. I absolutely love this yellow on you, brightens up everything and flatters your skin and hair tone. AND I must admit you look so much prettier without sunnies as you have beautiful eyes. I dont know why all bloggers where those sunnies all the time!


  24. LOVE these photos of you!! You are so pretty and your eyes are STUNNING! Yellow is definitely your colour!
