a casual chic outfit finished with a leather saddle bagSeems like I’m on a roll with the casual looks lately. I mean, you seriously can’t go wrong with a tee and jeans…ever! I think a lot of people underestimate the two and frankly, miss out on a world of outfit possibilities. Who says a casual look has to be boring? I usually like to play with my accessories to elevate the look a notch and make it more me.

Speaking of accessories…I’ve had this Mari Lassa saddle bag for only a few days and already can’t stop wearing it. It’s definitely a piece you want in your closet, timeless, classic, versatile & cute.

Mari Lassa is a family owned brand of handmade bags located in Bend, Oregon and ran by my sweet friend,  Anne Scott (@mari_lassa on Instagram) The brand is inspired by her late great grandmother, Mari Lassa (hence the brand name) who migrated to America in hopes of a better life, from a tiny town in the south of France at the tender age of 18. Her story is beautiful and so inspiring♥  You can read more about it here.

This bag is seriously everything plus more! Made from a buttery cowhide, the bag is designed with simple lines and an added raw edge meant to highlight the beauty of the leather. And the color you guys, a beautiful berry color! I love that it is very rich but at the same time subtle enough to be treated as a neutral. Because like I said, I’m obsessed and literally want to wear it with everything. Anne says that her bags are meant to be effortless, unexpected, cool and functional, and I truly believe they are!
