If I could wear this outfit to work every day I would. I love the comfort and flattering shape of a wrap dress, and simple, classic accessories make me feel extra professional. Even though I’ve had this wrap dress for awhile, adding the new tote and pumps made it feel fresh.
I have been incredibly picky in my quest for a work bag, so you can trust that this Nine West cognac tote meets some incredibly high specifications. I wanted the bag to be big enough to carry my laptop (13″) and it needed to have a special compartment for it. There are a lot of totes out there that have no dividers, which really sucks for keeping yourself organized. Second, it had to be the perfect neutral. Initially I wanted a tote with a mix of brown and black so that it matched everything, but ultimately this cognac won out. I love the richness of it, and the gold hardware goes perfectly with it.
And see that little zipper sleeve? It’s removable and acts as a little clutch for when you want to downsize. Great for going straight from work to out on the town. So basically this tote is all around perfect.
I guess it’s pretty obvious that I’m a big fan of Nine West. I own several pairs of their shoes, and when I was looking for a lower heeled nude shoe for work this pair was the top choice. I’m a big fan so far!
Do these photos look a little different to you? They do to me! These were taken by Kayla Williams of Heart and Soul Photography and I am so impressed! This was my first time working with a real photographer (no offense, hubby) and I love how she captured the whole look. Even though it started raining she still got some great shots. You can see more of her work on her Facebook page and Smug Mug.
