My new bag has finally arrived and its just at cute and chic as I had hoped! I didn’t see it in person before ordering at the store since this particular colour has been sold out everywhere in Canada. I’ve been carrying it for a couple days now just to see how I like it, and I’m officially in love. I don’t tend to buy bags of this size because I’m more of a large tote person, but I’m already getting used to the smaller size. Its actually nice carrying a bag that doesn’t weigh like 10 pounds lol!
I took this picture for comparison of the size beside a regular medium coffee cup, as you can see the bag is quite small but it does fit all my must-have purse essentials. My wallet, sunglasses, keys, hair brush, moisturizer and lipsticks fit perfectly inside.
Mercer Bag Details:
- 100% Full-Grain Pebbled Leather
- Interior: 100% Textured PVC
- Lining: 100% Polyester
- Gold-Tone Hardware
- 4.25” Handle Drop
- Adjustable Strap
- Interior: Center Zip Compartment
- 8.5”W X 7.5”H X 4”D
There are two different sizes of the Mercer bag, I purchased the crossbody version but there is a large version as well… I think I might need to invest in that one for the fall (don`t tell Peter!).
I never really reach for bags with silver hardware since I`m more of a gold kinda girl, but I do love the way the silver looks against the pearl grey leather. The bases of the handles on this bag are very similar to the `Givenchy Antigona` tote, which I think gives this bag a higher-end feel but at a much more reasonable price!
I love that this bag has a middle zippered compartment that breaks up the bag into sections. I`m very OCD about having an organized bag so this works great for keeping my essentials in easy to find spots. I put my wallet and keys in the back compartment, sunnies and phone in the zippered pocket and then a little pouch of beauty products in the front compartment. This makes my life so much easier and saves me time rummaging around in the bottom of my bag for my lipliner, or keys.
The only thing I wish this bag had that my other MK bag has is a key fob on the inside of the bag that I could clip my keys to so they don`t fall out. Not that I think they would but I just love the idea of having them secured and not having to worry, since this bag is kind of shallow. Other then that I love everything about this bag and can`t wait for the weather to warm up so I can start carrying it more!
Thanks so much for reading,

Happy Friday everyone!!
I`m really excited to share today`s post with you guys because it consists of 4 of my favorite pieces at the moment. This over-sized sweater that I`ve been wearing on repeat for the past two weeks…oops! If you`ve been following me on Instagram you`ve definitely seen it make an appearance or two haha! The same goes for this Miranda Frye necklace, I mentioned a few weeks ago in this post that I was loving dainty gold necklaces and spoke about this one in particular. Well…I sold myself on it and ordered it a few days later, and now I refuse to take it off -its too perfect (insert heart eye emoji).The shipping was fast and the quality is exceptional, I`ll have to order another one of her pieces when it gets a little closer to summer!
I know I always apologize for talking about the Rockstar jeans because I rave about them so much on here, but here I go again… I promise ill make it quick. These are the highwaisted ones made with the `Sculpt` denim and they`re not as see-through as typical white denim, which I think is a huge selling feature! They are thick and flattering, and believe it or not I was wearing black undergarments and you couldn’t even tell, which is unheard of! Okay, moving on…these Adidas sneakers are everything! They are super comfortable, have great arch support(a must for me!), and because of the neutral grey and white colors I know they will go with so much! I did size down about half a size because they run a bit big, but other then that they`re perfect.
Okay I`m off to watch the new Riverdale episode (#obsessed), and then to the gym with Peter! I hope everyone has a great weekend and I`ll talk to you in Mondays post.

Todays post is the first of probably quite a few ‘transitional’ outfits I’ll be posting, since the weather is at a weird in between point where some days it’s mild and other days it’s freezing. I picked up this vest at a boutique in my local mall (which unfortunately doesn’t have a website!), and thought it would be a perfect third piece for transitioning into spring/summer. I love the way it looks layered over a turtle neck for the colder temps we are experiencing now, but I also tried pairing it over a fitted dress for later and it looked so good! I’m also picturing it in the summer with a pair of drapey shorts and a tank, to add a trendier vibe to an otherwise basic outfit.
On another note, I bought two silk neck scarves today, the trend I wasn’t sure I would try for myself, but I tried it and fell inlove! So you’ll definitely be seeing that trend popping up on the blog sooner or later haha!

Todays outfit is one of my favorites because I’ve been coveting this Zara jacket for about a month now and finally got my hands on it! Peter and I spent the afternoon in a little town just a short drive from where we live and it was so cute and festive there that we had to stop and take some outfit pictures. Although it was absolutely freezing and the wind was blowing so hard it made the cold weather feel even colder. Neither of us dressed for the weather (typical) so between each shot we had to keep running back into the car before we could take the next picture, it was quite the experience haha!
Is anyone else watching the Bachelor this season? I wasn’t the biggest fan of Nick on Andi and Kaitlyn’s seasons but I really loved him on BIP and now I’m really rooting for him on his season of the bachelor. My Final 3 guesses as of right now are Rachel, Vanessa, and Liz!
Do you guys agree? I’d love to hear your predictions!!
