happy tuesday, everyone!
another weekend has come and gone –
i am currently at my desk, chugging coffee, attempting
to be productive, and ultimately longing for
another summer day to enjoy outside (wearing shorts;
sipping cold brew). am i right?
despite babysitting for the majority of the
weekend, i had the opportunity to visit family,
celebrate a friend’s birthday, and consume far too
much ice cream and tacos. i also stopped by
wow wow hawaiian lemonade, new to kirkland (!!!).
i sampled the traditional lemonade, watermelon-
basil lemonade, and the original acai bowl.
let me tell you, these treats were well worth
the 45 minute+ wait we endured. i cannot
wait to go back and try additional smoothies,
varying flavors of lemonades, and bowls!
disclosure: crystal of anguay reed designs graciously
provided me this clutch at a discounted price. as per usual,
all opinions are my own!
as an aspiring seattle creative, i greatly enjoy
supporting local brands and small businesses.
women-owned businesses are particularly inspiring, and i am
grateful for the opportunity to share locally made
products and designs on my blog.
today, i am thrilled to be partnering with designer,
crystal of anguay reed designs. not only is crystal the
cutest (and most genuine!) designer, she has an immense
talent for designing and crafting statement handbags
‘we design and hand-make accessories
and ready-to-wear fashion in washington state.’
i am styling the revolution clutch in earthy pink
rose. this clutch is handmade from vegan leather –
it is the softest clutch i own! anguay reed designs is
renowned for their attention to detail –
from the delicate hand stitching, to the gorgeous
lining inside the bag and printed cloth
bag the clutch is placed inside prior to shipping.
crystal, you are one talented lady!
to my fellow fashionistas, anguay reed designs
is graciously offering my readers a special
discount! simply use the code ‘diaryofmegan’ for
25% off your order here! i am currently lusting after
this adorable ‘liberate’ clutch.
purple is one of my favorite colors,
and i was immediately drawn to the dusty
rose ‘revolution’ clutch. the color compliments a
variety of my purple, navy, and gray (and many
printed!) tops and dresses. i cannot wait to
style this bag in other ways. denim shorts and
rompers, i am looking at you!
today, i chose to wear a lavender drop-waist
dress and leopard trench. this jacket is light
enough to casually throw on, but provides a bit of
warmth on a chilly summer evening. sandals,
stud earrings, and an array of delicate rings
complete the outfit.
