Each month Samantha of Elah Tree, Megs of Rivers & Roads, and me (Elizabeth of Oak + Oats!) join together to share three ways to style the same clothing item & your invited to be a part it! Our goal is to encourage, awaken, and celebrate the inherent beauty in each one of us as we live in community.

For the month of May, we are featuring a new way to carry all your things – the POPBASIC Paloma Leather Clutch. I love only bringing a small wallet when we are going out but I always find I’m still trying to hold my cell phone, sunglasses, keys, lip gloss, gum, etc. When I discovered this large clutch I swooned! I can leave the house with just one small bag BUT everything fits inside! This helps my losing things percentage drop way low 🙂

Bruce and I went to the Broadmoor to walk around for a little after dinner date. We tried to catch “magic hour” but we were just a little too late and the sun disappeared behind the towering mountains. Because the sun was still up (just hidden behind the mountain casing a huge shadow) we still got some fun and dreamy photos! We’ve been playing a lot with our photography styles and learning how to capture images the way we hope. We are learning to become photographers and we’re having a blast doing it!

YOUR MISSION: We’ve shown you how we are styling the Paloma Leather Clutch and now it is your turn! We want to see how YOU style the clutch on your blog, facebook, instagram, or twitter! (You can get $15 off when you click here to purchase!) Make sure to use the hashtag #TryStyleCo so that we can see your wonderful creations. We will do fun shout outs on social media with our favorite looks!
