I wanted to pick up a backpack purse for my trip to Seattle, and of course found so many in stores that I couldn't decide on just one. I recently picked up two (both under $30) and the picture doesn't even do them justice. They are gorgeous. I decided to take this chic black backpack with gold zipper details on my trip to Seattle and couldn't be happier. I love backpack purses because even though it's a "backpack," (which hasn't always been the biggest fashion statement), you can find designs that match your style (like a purse), and have your hands free to shop, or grab a Starbucks (or cocktail) in the airport and still have plenty of room for all of your essentials. In this $29 black backpack, I had room for my iPad, a book, wallet, headphones, cell phone, small make-up bag and keys with a little more room to spare. I bought this to travel with, but now find myself taking it to work with me as my purse. 

I plan on using this pretty Madison West metallic grey backpack in the near future. It's so  beautiful pretty I'm afraid to set it down and get anything on it. I can't believe it was only $29.00. I picked this up at Marshalls. SCORE!

I'm very happy with these two purchases, and am thrilled I could grab two trendy accessories for under $30 each.

I love the pleated skirt trend, and plan on rocking these all Winter with chunky heel booties (once it gets cold enough here in Vegas). The midi length is my favorite because it can be worn so many ways for all types of occasions. Below I've picked out my favorite pleated midi skirts for the season.

Leather is of course a staple for Winter, so you can't go wrong with a pleated leather midi and some gorgeous booties to stay on trend. 


Even the lightest fabrics (like Jersey) can be layered with a chunky cardigan and OTK boots to keep you nice and warm. Living in the desert, we're not used to the Winter you east coast fashionistas are, so having light fabrics like this are great for layering in Fall and Winter and wearing solo in Spring and Summer.


In the past, I haven't been a huge supporter of wearing velour and velvet . Turns out, Winter 2016 clothing lines are full of both and I'm shocked to say, I couldn't be more impressed. Today there are pumps and skirts and jackets in every color of velour and velvet you can think of. . . This pink velour midi skirt for example is gorgeous. I may start with purchasing some velvet booties, baby steps (haha).

Free People Sunnies, Sold Out (similar

The Vegas pool days of Summer 2016 are dwindling. The wind is blowing everything that isn't stuck in the ground into our pool and while the 80 and 90 degrees are still happening here and there, the pool water is barely warm enough to get two feet in :( With that being said, we desert girls are finally ready for REAL transition outfits. I found the softest jumper for fall at my favorite Salt Lake City boutique, Flight. I see furry boots and a leather jacket with this jumper in my future. . . But for now, I'm wearing it solo along side my favorite booties

Tunic || Choker || Watch || Leggings || Bucket Bag (sold out), Similar 

We've had some crazy wind in Vegas the past couple weeks, which only shows off flowy pieces like this Free People Tunic even more. It comes in two gorgeous colors, blush/mink and a smokey purple/wine shade. I was so excited to put this on, I forgot to tuck in my hanger string (whoops). Lately I've been loving to wear this tunic with leggings or wide leg culottes. The materials is super light weight, the design is very flowing, a.k.a. super flattering and can be worn casual or dressed up. I will be using this to layer my sweaters this winter :)

As always, thanks for stopping by! - Crystal Marie

I'm jumping on the floral dress train and I don't want to get off.

Who doesn't want a floral dress sitting in their closet this fall. With this dress, I found I've been able to wear it to work, to a wedding rehearsal and for date night. I love the length of midi dresses. And because they are so versatile, it makes me want to keep styles like this in my closet that much longer. 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week!  - Crystal Marie
