I’m so excited to show you this darling basket bag today!  Meet the Cult Gaia Ark Bag.  It is the It Bag Handbag for Spring and Summer.    This sweet basket bag is actually a traditional Japanese picnic basket.  Get this bag quickly because I was wait listed twice last summer and never received mine!  Plus, because of demand, it has gone up in price $40 but at $128 it is still very reasonable for an It Bag.

I’ve carried mine every day this week and have gotten so many compliments!  I brought it to Sea Island last week with the intention to carry and photograph it there but it was just too cold.  I am carrying the small size and it is perfect for my wallet, Big-O Key Ring, favorite gloss and iPhone.  The large is slightly larger but at 5’2″, I didn’t want it to look too large for me.  It also comes in black acrylic, pearl white acrylic (sold out currently), malachite acrylic and a darker stained bamboo.  The malachite is truly gorgeous if you are a green gal.

I’m so happy that spring has arrived and I can begin to wear all white.  I’m wearing this outfit to a fun event for Paws Up at Star Chef Kent Rathbun’s tonight.  I love to wear one column of color as it makes me appear a bit taller. 😉  This great ruffled one shoulder top is from a designer that is new to me.  I actually have both colors of this Devlin Vanessa One-Shoulder Blouse.  You know from yesterday that I love navy and white is always fresh.  The fabric is thick and feels much more expensive than $88.  I’m wearing the XS.  I honestly love a one-shoulder top and think they are easier to wear than an off-the-shoulder top (although I love this one.)  The ruffle is totally on trend as I shared with you Monday.

I’ve curated a cute boutique of other basket bags and one shoulder ruffle tops below.

TGIF!
