Grab a Clutch and Go

Ignore the look on my face. I think I was trying not to laugh at something. And then when I came across the photo while editing them, my look cracked me up and it was the best one for my outfit, so into the blog it goes - even if I do look prissy! Just call me Little Miss Priss. My mom certainly did when I was a kid!

I've been carrying clutches to work the last few days. Now that I am an old married lady, I don't "go out" like I used to and my clutches just don't get much use. It's all totes and handbags full of copious amounts of gum and kleenex (that's what old ladies carry in their purse, right?). I decided that I needed to bust out some of my clutches from their sad and abandoned life on my purse shelf. Do you ever carry clutches to work?

I carry way to much stuff to and from work to even think about carrying a clutch. Heck, I carried one out last night and didn't have enough room. They are super cute though.

You look great in this outfit!

Personally I never use a clutch, I like a handbag to hang, leaving my arms unencumbered to do other things!

I love today's outfit - the brown and pink look fantastic together :-)

Love the color combo in the outfit...looks great on you! Haven't carried a clutch in ages...do have a vintage 1960's grey leather and may have to dig it out of the closet.

Ooo look how tiny your waist looks! Nice. This outfit is fabulous on you!

Sheila said...

Ha, I use a backpack most days!

I love this look on you, Tina - Sherylyn's right, your waist looks SO tiny in this!

This shade of pink is wonderful on you too - I just love that ruffly top!

Oh I love this look! It's so curvy bombshell. And your hair is gorgeous.

Branka said...

I adore huge bags, so I carry one with me all the time. You've inspired so many of my outfits I feel like I should pay you:)

PS I gave you a Stylish Blogger Award. Please come by and copy and paste it on your blog if you like :)

This is one of my favorite outfits on you! I have the tank in gray and was trying to figure out how to wear it. You have inspired me! I have clutches but don't carry them much.

Melissa said...

What a great outfit! I agree with the other ladies, your waist looks super tiny. I love that the ruffles peek out of the cardi. The shoes are fantastic too!

I cheat by stuffing a clutch (or other small purse) into my humongous work tote. I pull it out and carry it to lunch or wherever I go after work.

Sarah said...

I love the ruffles on your shirt - they work so well with that cardigan!!

As for clutches - I do not carry them to work. I use the same purse and put it into my closet every morning and don't touch it again until when I leave. I do use them when going out to dinner - even if it is casual because I like them so much.

I commute to work on the T so I take my life with me. Clutches wouldn't get me thru the day BUT you just gave me an idea. What if I throw a clutch in my tote bag and use that during the day! Ooh yes. Ive never "gone out" so until now I had no where to wear them. (I met my husband in highschool) he is a sucker for clutches too so he keeps buying them for me.

hillary said...

Hahaha just read the comments. I should do that before I type one in huh? I forgot to subscribe and say this is my favorite outfit on you!

Joan said...

Another cardigan that I love! I have decided that I'm just going to have to come to Texas and raid your closet!

This is so funny that you would be writing about clutches. My daughter and I were talking about clutches yesterday after I was trying to convince her to give me one of hers that I love. I was telling her that I carry way to much "stuff" around for work to carry a clutch but love them for going out, date night with hubby and church.

Kasmira said...

The ruffles go beautifully with the argyle.

Emily Kennedy said...

I LOVE this outfit on you. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Tina said...

Thanks, Everyone!

I also do the clutch stuck in a tote thing. I don't know who first came up with the notion of doing that, but I could kiss them b/c it works so well!
