I have really been feeling the soft pink color lately. This hue usually gives a more feminine vibe, but when I saw this chevron sweatshirt I thought of incorporating a street style element to bring a casual outfit idea to life. I received this Botkier Trigger satchel in the mail (thank you Botkier!) and when I saw it I was so stoked because it was just the thing I needed to finish off this look. I have a lot of soft pink pieces in my wardrobe, and I often find it can be difficult to accessorize them. Soft pink is such a delicate color and unless you’re wearing all black with it (like in this post) you can’t really put a black or brown bag with it (just my opinion). Needless to say, I am happy to add this Botkier bag to my collection because until now I did not have a bag in this color. If you haven’t heard of their brand, definitely check them out. I originally found out about Botkier through Lauren Conrad (you remember The Hills, right?) as she was bringing awareness to the brand by rocking their uber trendy bags and the images were showing up in trendsetting magazines that I was reading. I am a bag lover at heart, so I am always looking for the next stylish bag that hasn’t quite gone mainstream (i.e. Coach, Michael Kors) to the point where you can’t walk through a mall without seeing at least ten women wearing the same brand. I have always liked being different and having something not everyone else has, or has heard of yet. That being said, I took to the internet and did my research. Turns out this brand was pumping out some fresh and edgy pieces in some fun and funky colors. One of the things I love about their bags is the zipper feature, which tends to be a common thread that runs through most of their designs. To me the zipper says young and on trend. I also love the texture of the leather they use. I am super picky about my leather, and I refuse to wear anything that looks plastic and cheap. This leather makes the cut in my opinion. You can take one look at it and see that quality is taken into consideration when their bags are designed. I hope today’s post has inspired you to play with some non traditional color and has given you some casual outfit ideas.
