I recently attended a trunk show for one of my favorite local designers - Lady Sophia! ( See my coverage of her debut runway show, here ) The Kenyan-born designer's latest line features beautiful handmade jewelry, colorful dresses and skirts, and my personal favorite - these drop-dead gorgeous calfskin bags. After drooling over them at the show I was able to pull a couple of my favorites to style here on the blog!

This one in particular is the perfect size and style for summer and it goes with everything. Although it can be difficult for me to operate out of such a small purse, cross-body bags have become my go-to accessory this summer. 

I chose to pair the bag with a pair of flared jeans and heeled clogs, but I'd also style it with an LBD or some textured shorts and t-shirt. I love how adding an unexpected print to an outfit can really amp up the 'luxe-factor'.  I'm also a huge fan of any kind of animal printed piece paired with something red. It really makes the print POP. To compete this look I accessorized with some simple gold statement jewelry to compliment the hardware of the bag and some basic brown mules. 

Thanks so much for reading!
