I was introduced to Vera Bradley’s new leather collection a few weeks ago and have been pairing this gorgeous little Harper bag with just about every outfit since. I’ve never had a “LWB” (“Little White Bag”) before and I’m amazed at its versatility. One LWB is all you really need to bring a clean POP of spring into your look. And it goes with LITERALLY everything!

I’ve had this nautical sweater dress for a few years now — it’s a simple fit, cozy yet polished with a sense of dressy whimsy that I just adore. Throw it on with this classic LWB, some comfortable wedges to walk around in and BOOM, you have a polished look for business meetings, brunch dates, etc. It’s become my go-to outfit when I just don’t know what to wear. Yes, it may be a bit on the dressy side but, as Kate Spade herself says, “playing dress up begins at age five and never truly ends”. Amen to that!
