Get Dressed (See Jane Borrow)

Zara top (similar) + shoes, J Brand boyfriend jeans, borrowed Givenchy bag
I was thrilled when the gorgeous Samantha of Could I Have That approached me to be a part of a project that involved a certain Givenchy bag.  Dressed Boutique of Santa Barbara allowed some of us bloggers to style this gorgeous bag and I jumped at the chance.  I wouldn't dare try to compete with this bag--it's a look all in itself; rather, I kept it simple with a fitted peplum top and boyfriend jeans.  Check out how the other ladies below styled it--I think you'll be quite impressed!

Tara of The Wonder Girl
Audrey of Casual Glamorous
Kiara of Tobruck Ave
Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps 
Christine of My Style Pill



Enjoy the (long) weekend, everyone!
