Trendy x Chanel

Happy Tuesday, all! I feel like this weekend was a complete whirlwind and I am still right in the center spinning. We have so many things going on in our house right now (all exciting... yet, stressful) and these last few weeks have been pure chaos. I used to thrive on crazy, but lately I find myself preferring the calm and paced life. I guess when you throw a 1 year old into the mix, its natural to prefer the calm, especially considering life is crazy as it is without all the extra whirlwind! 



We had a pretty eventful weekend, if you follow me on Snapchat (theSCMovement), you probably got a nice little glimpse of it; we visited my family, participated in a cancer Relay for Life with my mom, celebrated birthday parties... the list was endless! I wore this ensemble to my sis-in-law's birthday brunch on Sunday in Laguna Beach at Skyloft. It was a great day, and D and I had family in town so we left Raj for the day so he could get some quality time in with his grandparents and so we could get some alone time. We love having our Sundays for family time with just the 3 of us, but I will admit that it was nice having some time alone with D. I honestly love spending time with him, he is my husband, but also my best friend and I appreciate that when we are together, the jokes and laughs are endless and that special feeling is still there. 




Ok, soooo I have been dyyyyying to share this new handbag with all of you because, ohh my gosh - 
CHANEL-OOOO!!!
How cute, gorgeous, and chic is it? I am honestly so in love, and have been wearing it everywhere! It is so great to have crossed over and on me at all times, and I use it even when I am carrying around the diaper bag because I love having my credit cards, ID, chap stick, and car keys in it and easy to find and grab. I scored this gorgeousness from a website called Trendlee. Trendlee sells preowned designer handbags for a fraction of the original retail price. Everything is 100% authentic and in fantastic condition, super trustworthy! What I love about their site is that even though the bags are preowned, you can barely even tell because of how great the condition is. Also, have you ever had your eye on a handbag and by the time you were brave enough the pull the trigger and purchase it, it sold out worldwide in the company? I have, it totally sucks! But, whats awesome about Trendlee is you just may stumble on that bag you missed out on... I have already narrowed down my next pick that I have my eyes on from one of those situations. 






I have been loving and gravitation to the clean and simple black and white look lately. It is so easy to feel confident in both colors, and since I do swim twice a week with Raj since January, I have had a pretty early start on my tan this year (even using sunblock) - so I feel extra motivated to throw white on already. This look was so easy to dress up just by adding the sexy strappy heels, but as mentioned, D and I spent the whole day out, so after brunch I ditched the heels and added flat sandals - it completely changed the look up. I loved it both ways, though, which makes ensembles like this the best!





Make sure you take some time and browse the Trendlee website! It is definitely my new go-to for designer handbags and has helped me feel a teeny tiny bit less guilty for purchasing them... but not enough that I am not already picking out my next one, oops!! Haha! 

Even better... I have a code for all of my readers to receive 5% off their purchase!!
