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!

Enjoy the (long) weekend, everyone!
