lemon lime + santogold

My search for the perfect envelope clutch ended when I laid eyes on this Matt & Nat Santogold Clutch. I can honestly say, it was love at first sight. The Ikat print in orange, dark turquoise and green with the black background was so...beautiful! My feelings only grew stronger when I saw this bag came with two additional straps, so I could wear it over my shoulder as well. Opened it up, and the lining is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Could this be, the perfect bag? As if I weren't already won over, I found this little baby at the Dakota Group Blowout Sample Sale. So she was a fraction of the price. I'm so sorry Visa, this one was a no brainer! And no, this was not sponsored by Matt & Nat. These words come straight from the fashion loving heart :)

  2. Your clutch is gorgeous!
    And you look GREAT!
    Would you mind if I saved one of your pics as a Summer Inspiration outfit? It's so lovely! And I have similar trousers.
    It's winter in South Africa at the moment.

  8. I love everything about this outfit! Patterned clutch, Wayfarer eyeglass frames, big ruffle front on the blouse, AND you're getting more wear out of your Anthropologie trousers.

    Have a great weekend Alicia!

  11. I'm sure that Visa (or Mastercard, as the case may be) understands our need for beautiful things, and this clutch was clearly justified, seeing as it's practically perfect in every way- particularly the added bonus of straps. How awesome. I have to admit, though, my favourite part of this look is your amazing glasses. You make even minor geek chic look so enviable :)

  39. love the whole look, but the clutch is to die for. Anything tribal is my obsession and reminds me of touring the Masai market in Nairobi.
