Remember when Loeffler Randall sent these pretty raffia pieces my way a few months back? Well, not surprisingly, I haven’t been able to wear them in Dallas since the weather has been so crazy and cold this winter. The second I knew I’d be coming to Carmel, I immediately packed this purse and sandal combo. Aren’t they the cutest? The bag is great and so versatile since it can be worn as a clutch, crossbody or shoulder bag. Since it’s black, it also goes with everything. Some other Loeffler Randall favorites of mine this season include these cobalt perforated espadrille flats and this fun colorblock bag. If you’re looking for a bright statement purse for spring/summer but don’t want to spend a fortune, this cobalt Rider bag or this citrus-printed clutch are both fabulous. I am also dying to get my hands on these gold-heeled sandals.
If you’ve been to Carmel before, you’ll know that it’s not nearly as warm as its southern California counterparts. I suck at packing, so of course I brought all the wrong things and had to improvise with my outfits a little (i.e. wearing a dress over pants). It’s just too chilly to wear bare-legged, but I liked the idea of triple-layering my new OTTE dress with my favorite white jeans and new Rebecca Taylor vest (sale find!). Thoughts?

The best outfits are usually the ones we didn’t plan, this is really cute the dress looks like a tunic. And great deal on that vest.
That sandal/ purse combo is perfect for a warmer vacation destination. Great idea to pack them. They look great with the look.
Those raffia pieces are stunning. Carmel really is beautiful, but it’s chilly! I did a road trip up PCH a few years back in June. I didn’t realize I should have packed sweaters!
Love how you layered the vest and the dress – I hear you sometimes I pack on how I wish the weather was vs reality :) Thank you for your sweet note yesterday Merritt:)
Love this look! Gorgeous bag!

I love that vest!! and the clutch and sandal combo is so fresh and summery. You look great as always.
Love the shoes and bag! Perfect for a Spring vacation…I’ve never been to Carmel before, but your beautiful Instagram posts make me want to add it to me “to-go” list!
I am awful at packing, too! You definitely recovered well – great look – until I read your post, I thought it was a planned look of the dress over the jeans.

I love love love love this outfit!!! So classy and chique! Being a blonde you look very good in black and white, wauw (I’m also a blonde and I think it makes me look so pale, don’t know why). And that bag is so amazing as well! xx
I just met your blog and is so pretty. I invite you to visit my blog and if you want follow me on blogger! Kisses :)
I knew I would love this post just by the name! A raffia clutch has always been one of my staples to have! Great look! Have a beautiful weekend!
I’m usually so impatient to wear new things! Love your printed dress & amazing bag : )

I love all things Loeffler Randall and I may have just bought two new pairs of LR shoes (one ebay, one poshmark) that i soooooooooooo don’t need, like my shoe situation is nauseating! Ha!
Lovely look! It’s awesome and I love that the bag matches perfectly with the shoes!
