To say I love my new Roots bag from their Pop Art line would be a massive understatement. In the few days since receiving this luxurious leather number, I’ve toted it around effectively every day. The Little Brooklyn, as the is called, is literally the perfect size for my day-to-day life: enough room for a notebook, wallet, cell phone and the countless array of pens and lip balms I always have rattling around in my bags, but also petite enough to still feel ladylike and easy.

If you’re looking for a new addition to your bag collection, definitely stop by Roots’ Pop Art page: as modern and sophisticated as the bags are, the real pull for me is Roots’ always exceptionally luxurious raw leather, sourced from one of the most amazing tanneries in Italy. Definitely an investment worth making!

Anyway, I really wanted to let this stunning bag take front and centre in this look, so the rest of my outfit is pretty restrained: some fave skinnies from James Jeans, muted grey heels and a soft, floral silk top from Zara Canada. All in all, the perfect look for a day that consisted of Jen and I gorging ourselves on macarons and cake at Thierry – still pulled together but comfortable enough that no one can see the little food baby I had growing (I really have always found the “food baby” thing kind of gross but it so aptly captures what was going on with my poor distended belly here).

    I know I'm totally biased because I have this, well, thing about black and white but seriously, pally, neutrals totally suit you! You are looking just fabulous here… it took a while for those James Jeans to win me over, but I am now officially convinced of their awesomeness, and all because of you 🙂 Miss you!

    I love this whole look! shirts like the Zara blouse never seem to fit me correctly. I tried on the kimono style dress from Zara and it was just so big in the front and i already had on a small. But you are working it. And i love the contract of the motor style jeans.

    Love this! I love the contrast of the feminine floral blouse with the 'tough' details on the jeans. Very cute!

    Roots bags have been getting better and better the past few seasons. I was toting my little red Roots clutch in the photo that appeared in People StyleWatch's April 2013 issue.

    Ah, I'm so ecstatic that I came across your blog!

    I love this look. The contrast with the silky-ish top and your rocker chic pants really is styling genius.

    I would love to hopefully see you visit my brand new blog!

    That bag is a beauty and so on trend in black and white. Although you kept the rest of your look understated, there's so much visual interest going on with the floral silk blouse and textured motorcycle jeans that it's far from boring. As for your food baby, yay for flowy tops that hide any signs of a bulging belly!
