I'm a stickler for details. I'm not much of a maximalist, but I do like the things I wear to make some sort of statement—for example, this beautiful clutch from DC-based brand, Matine Studio. It's one of my favorite pieces! The simple, scalloped detail is perfection, and the matte finish of the leather is so soft, and dreamy. I love how minimalist it is, but it adds just a little texture and interest to any look. 

This elegant bag can be dressed up or down—so, in my case, I dressed it down (kind of), for a quick coffee date in the city—I paired it with jeans, a silk top, scarf, and my trusty Perspex boots. I love the idea of adding just a few special touches to a denim look, it's so interesting how a few things can totally change the personality of an outfit—I was going for that off-duty look—you know, trying, but not really.

Casual-but-not-really is my jam, forever and always.



PS. Five other fabulous DC babes styled this bag, and if you want to see how they did it, head over to Matine Studio's blog!
