You're still the one

"You're still the one I run to, the one that I belong to, you're still the one I want for life" 
-Shania Twain

First of all, you're welcome for getting that song stuck in your head all day.
Second of all, yes, I love country music, I grew up in Texas - it's kind of a thing there.
Third of all, don't get excited, this love song is dedicated to cobalt.

Yes, cobalt. I just did a search on my blog for "cobalt" and up popped 13 posts. I was actually quite surprised there weren't more than that because I feel like it's the one color I always turn to. It's quite funny actually because red is my favorite color. Yet, cobalt is my favorite color to wear apparently. It just makes me so incredibly happy and I feel like it's relevant through all seasons.




Sunnies: Gucci | Necklace: Stella and Dot (option) | Earrings: Francesca's (option) | Top: Express (in Chelsea Blue) | Belt: Gifted | Bracelet: J Crew (option) | Skirt: The Limited (no peplum option) | Laptop Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Heels: Kate Spade (option, sea foam green option on sale here)

I recently bought this laptop bag and it's changed my life. You see, I've come to realize that I have quite a handbag collection, and that if I didn't have to carry a ginormous workbag everyday, my handbags would get a lot more daily use. Sometimes, I end up turning to my smaller cross body bags or a clutch that I can simply throw into my work bag so that I'm not having to carry two huge bags everyday. It doesn't help that my laptop weighs more than me. Ideally it would be as small as my MacBook Air which I could easily fit in one of my bigger purses.

So, I ordered this laptop bag, which is exactly that - big enough to hold a laptop and that's basically it. Yes, that does still leave me with two bags to carry, but at least it's slimline and not bulky and I'm able to use my other purses more! Why didn't I think of this years ago?

  1. Hee hee, love your song dedication. Shania is country-pop so no disclaimer required. :) I think I would dedicate that song to black if I had to pick a color for it. Love your Ms. Classy Professional look here (cute detail on the skirt!) and the laptop bag is verrrrry nice!

  6. I love all the different colors of blue in your necklace! And now you have me thinking about a laptop bag like that - too many times have I switched between small purses and the large laptop bag and forgotten something!

  8. I love cobalt, and it looks great on you! Those shoes are fabulous, especially with the bows! Also, you reminded me that I desperately need a new laptop case. Not one of those sleeves, like a real case like yours! May have to look into this one!

  11. Cobalt is one of my favorite colors to wear as well. Really, anything in the blue family is what I normally pick even though green is my favorite color. When I look in my closet half of the clothes are a shade of blue. I am trying to branch out more. i love yor shoes!

    1. Isn't that funny? That our wardrobe preferences for colors differ from our actual favorite colors? And I wouldn't even say blue is the most flattering on me, but it just makes me so happy - especially cobalt!
      Thanks for stopping by!
