SoChick! Style Guide {with SoChick's Savannah Tote}

Pin It
Happy Monday!  I hope you enjoyed the weekend, we did!  I got a lot of sewing done to catch up from time missed for sick days, I feel like i'm getting back on track again and that's always a welcome feeling!

Today I wanted to share one of the newer bags in the SoChick! Shop, but in a different-to-me way.  You may remember my post about this cool site, Polyvore, where you can style outfits, rooms, and whatnot... well, after having SoChick's spring photo shoot rained out, I thought Polyvore would be a great way to share how I envision my SoChick! Handbags being part of your life!

Today we are going to look at The Savannah Tote in Aqua Spring:

While Eloise, my dress form, is a very cooperative model (and classy gal, I must say), these Polyvore outfits really portray The Savannah Tote's possibilities, as I envision it:

Dress it up [Lady's Lunch & Shopping]

The name says it all, "The Savannah Tote", it's a classy bag that wants to have fun, too... just like the city it's named after.  This would be my outfit choice for a classy, springtime, girl's lunch downtown followed by shopping, shopping and shopping!

Because The Savannah Tote is nice and roomy, at four inches deep with four interior pockets, you can stash all of your necessities in it as well as some purchases, you know... to keep your hands free for the larger shopping bags. What's great about this style is that it can also pass for the office, in which case you can drop your planner and iPad in your bag, too!  Or, you can swap the dress for linen pants and add a cami under the cardigan for another great wear-to-work look!

Go Casual [Running errands & play-dates with the kids]

SoChick Tangerine/Aqua Casual

Like, 98% of the time I'm a jeans and flip-flops kind of gal, so this is a great example of my idea of "Everyday Chic"!  Comfy cuffed boyfriend jeans with a basic, yet feminine, white cotton tank, dressed up with ruffly leather sandals, a necklace with "pop" and a gold cuff... I couldn't resist topping it off with the sparrow earrings to play into the sparrows in the tote's "Aqua Spring" print! Fun!

You can wear The Savannah Tote at the elbow, but also hike it up to your shoulder when running after the kiddos; again, since it has so much room, you can toss in a few diapers, a travel wipes case, juice and snacks along with all of your necessities, too! 

Of course these outfits highlight some of the season's hottest colors, ahem, Tangerine Tango, however, I think this color combo is super timeless; always a great pick for Spring and warmer weather.

Wasn't that fun!?  Okay, so now that we're all daydreaming of shopping in Savannah... time to get back to work!

Note: Some of the items I chose for my Polyvore outfits are extremely out of my price range, so if you really love them I'd recommend hitting up a place like TJ Maxx, to find similar styles.  Of course, SoChick! Handbags can only be purchased through my online Shop.  XxOo~M
