Throwing on a tee and jeans is the easiest and by far my most comfortable pairing while rushing to arrive by 8am (being told last week to not be late!) and detouring slightly to buy a mocha on a Monday morning. Trust me, I needed the few extra minutes to buy a mocha then trying to find something else to wear. This was only possible because my wardrobe is now no longer a mess of clothes I barely wear. Instead, it consists of essentials that can be paired in an instant, allowing one less thing to worry about! I finished the outfit off with Nike sneakers knowing that it was going to be a long day and chose the amazing "Stitch and Hammer" leather tote to carry my day's worth of things.
I only found out about Stitch and Hammer towards the end of last year after finding them on Instagram. I instantly fell in love with their handmade leather goods. The process of buying the leather tote was a lovely experience, from the amazing customer care by Amy who is the designer and maker behind Stitch and Hammer to the simple yet beautiful craftsmanship of the tote. In addition, the personal touches such as a the wrapping and little note made this experience even more worthwhile. Thank you, Amy!
