When: Monday November 21, 2011

Beige top: ? (Panama)
Floral skirt: Saks (Panama)
Brown belt: Zara (Panama)
Coral wedges: Pull & Bear (Europe)
Brown clutch: Via Vai (Panama)

Work + My usual night of working on a cazillion projects that I will never finish (I like to always be busy busy!)

One of the many things I have learned from following other blogs is that clutches are very very chic! The same outfit can look drastically different with a big brown bag or with a smaller brown clutch. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love big purses (they fit absolutely everything inside!); but something about clutches just seems so much more polished to me.

So, I am making an effort to buying a couple more clutches (since I used to have not one!). I don't think I will wear clutches everyday since they aren't as practical as big bags, but I'm happy to have them available for when I want to look just a little more polished.

Do you wear clutches or do you prefer larger bags?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this beige top:

  1. Clutches have made an awesome comeback this year. I really love them, and have incorporated them into my wardrobe.  Love yours, the sandals and that skirt. :D

  2. I do not own a clutch because they always seem so small to me.  However, when I go out and need just a little something to hold lipgloss, money, etc. I wish I had one!  Maybe that should go on my holiday wishlist :)  You are so right though, they do make an outfit look polished.  Heather
