Go for the Gold

Sloane Ranger varsity gold stripe tassel tote

See it here first. Fashion blogger Marianne from The Happy Closet Blog is sharing how she styled her Sloane Ranger Varsity Gold Tassel Tote (try to say that three times fast) on The Modern Prep Gazette today! She’s here to tell us how she styled it for early spring and how she plans to style it for the summer.

Happy Friday, Sloanies! I am so looking forward to this weekend. Hoping to squeeze in a day at the beach here in sunny South Florida before it’s back to the grind on Monday. Before we begin, I have a confession. I love any and everything gold. I’ve been known to not buy a top or bag if the hardware is silver. I just can’t do it. I’m a gold snob and I’m not afraid to admit it.

When I spotted this gold tote I had to have it. I knew I could style it now while the weather is still temperate and later when the summer heat arrives. I think I may even be able to wear it into fall! I do live in South Florida where seasons tend to blur together, so wearing something summery past Labor Day is perfectly acceptable.

For right now I styled the tote with a simple gingham top, my go-to dark wash skinnies, and a stacked heel sandal. It’s the perfect outfit for running a few errands, meeting with clients or friends, or for an evening stroll through downtown.

For summer I ditch all varieties of denim. It is far too hot and humid for such a heavy material. Instead I opt for lightweight dresses or a tank top and shorts combo. I’m really loving this dress. I think it pairs perfectly with the tote too! Add in a pair of wedges and the perfect sunnies and you’re set for a day out with your girlfriends.

Now that you have some styling inspo for now and later go scoop up your own tote!  And when you do, make sure to tag @sloaneranger on instagram.

We can’t wait to see! Thanks, Marianne!
