Spring Handbags I am Loving

Spring Handbags
The light is at the end of the tunnel…Spring is almost here!! Three cheers for warm weather!!
What I love about Spring is the reintroduction of pretty, pastel colors! Here are a few new purses that have caught my eye.
I love this blush pink handbag from H&M. it is so pretty to pair with spring dresses or even a layer back look of capris and a flow shirt.

Longchamp Leather Purse
These Longchamp bags are so cute and are big enough to match any outfit. This deep pink is a great pop of color for the warmer weather of Spring.

Herschel Supply Co. Foldover Clutch
I have had my eye on one of their book bags for a while and while visiting their site I saw this beauty. I love the two tone color blocking effectย of this clutch.

Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody Bagย 
Absolutely love this Rebecca Minkoff bag. The teal bag would be a great addition to any outfit. I also like how big the bag is to fit everything I need during the day.

Women’s Reversible Tote Handbag
Tote bags are a great addition to everyone’s wardrobe. Not only are they reversible but the bags are affordable as well.

Kate Spade Lily Avenue Carrigan
There is nothing I love more than a new Kate Spade bag! This one is gorgeous!! I absolutely love the scallops on this one and the bright blue inside of the bag.

New Workout Clothes for Motivation

New Workout Clothes

More than anything else one of my biggest motivations in working out is to wear cute, fun clothes while doing it! Lately, I have been collecting some new workout clothes that are fun and different to wear. It has definately helped push me to get to the gym and feel good about myself. It is always fun to get a new outfit but there is something even better about getting a new workout outfit.

Here is one of my favorite new outfits!

Whenever I really wanna push myself at a workout or just wear something nice as a pick me up I am always wearing these ‘space inspired’ pants! They are so much fun!!

Recently, when going to Dick’s Sporting goods they were having a huge sale and I was so excited to get some new undershirts to workout with. I love these because they are stretchy, tight (aka hold all the fluff in) and collect all my sweat.

Anything Lululemon = amazing…am I right!? Having some new items from there has definitely motivated me to wear them to go workout and look cute too!

I am loving these headbands lately! They are the best at keeping the flyways away from my face when working out.

Last, but not least, I recently got this neck warmer on super clearance at Gap for only $6 dollars! It is great for wearing around my neck and even up to my nose in the chilly, winter weather when going on a run and etc.

Happy First Blogiversary!!!!

Hi lovelies,

It is my 23rd Birthday and my first anniversary of my blog all TODAY!

Sassy Sapperstein's Blogiversary

Today I started off the day doing something I have NEVER done before; going to a 6am spin class!! This year I am making it a goal to lose at least 30 more pounds in an effort to be healthy and fit.

As I am now, I am healthier that I was last year, but I still need to lose some of the weight on my frame to get into the right area for my body type. Unlike last year, I am excited about this journey and look forward to doing all I can to push myself and become fit, gain muscle, and confidence in my fitness abilities.

This afternoon I got all dressed up and went out to eat with coworkers! It was so much fun to laugh and see them. Below are pics of my ‘Outfit of the Day’.

Friday Favorites for Fall

Hello lovelies,

It is finally FRIDAY!! Having Monday of this week off was wonderful, but by Tuesday I was sick and had to stay home from work for two days. I am feeling much better but being sick is no fun!!

This weekend Paul and I are going to Virginia to visit both of our families. On Sunday we are ending the weekend with a friend’s wedding! So ready for the weekend to begin!!

Here are some of my favorites this fall. Also, arn’t you loving the cooler weather!?

Fall Favorites

Plaid

Plaid is a much loved fall favorite! Plaids are perfect to pair for any occasion. One of my favorite outfits is an over sized plaid shirt paired with leggings. It is cozy yet still in style!

Leopardtory burch

Leopard is almost a year round favorite for me! I love how versatile the pattern is to fit with many different outfits. A big thing on my wardrobe wishlist are leopard shoes. Ooohh, the outfits I could make with them! ahah ๐Ÿ™‚

Gold

Lately, I have been loving gold jewelry! Nothing is better than a timeless piece of gold jewelry from Kate Spade. …And they just so happen to be having a family and friends sale right now with 30% off a purchase with this code: F14FFUS

Blingunnamed

 

Any outfit can be jazzed up with a little bling bling! Statement pieces are really in right now and can be found at many stores like Target, J Crew, Stella and Dot, and Baublebar. Specifically, Baublebar has been on point lately with their jewelry. Currently, I am eying this beautiful statement neclace with crystal flowers. This is elegant but blingin’.

unnamed2Cozyyy

There is nothing more desirable in fall than to be cozy by the fire, in bed, or in a comfy chair reading a book. When doing those things I love a soft, plush blanket and cute thermos with a hot treat inside.

Summer to Fall: Fashion

I am so excited for colder weather! There is nothing I love more than starting to layer clothes with sweaters, button downs, scarves and more! Here are a few essentials from fall that are brand new in the stores!

Summer to Fall Fashion

Graphic Tees to Graphic Sweaters

C Wonder Sweater

 

This past summer was all about the graphic tee. A great way to transition into fall is with a cute graphic sweater. I love the cat sweater on the left from C Wonder. Also, one of my favorite things to do with a graphic sweater is to put a button down underneath to add depth, a pop of color and to dress up the outfit.

Crop Tops to ScarvesOld Navy Scarf

Crop tops have about the same amount of material as a scarf…maybe even less, so they are the perfect transition from a summer staple to a fall must have. Scarves are the perfect addition to any outfit this fall. Even with some hotter days still slipping in you can wear a light-weight scarf to layer amp up the outfit.

Dark Denim from GapShorts to Dark Denim

Now that summer is passing, it is time to put away the funky, bright shorts and make room for a nice, dark pair of jeans. Wearing dark denim is a classic look that is a staple in a fall wardrobe. Investing in a pair that does not have holes or any distinguished stitching is essential. Personally, I prefer to wear skinny jeans in the fall as they easily fit into booties and boots.

Sandals to Booties

Jack Rogers BootiesAs the weather gets colder so do my toes when wearing sandals! I am so excited to bring out my pair of booties. Booties are the perfect addition to a fall outfit. They are shorter than boots, look great paired with dresses or denim and give you some extra height, think closed toe heels. These new booties fromย Jack Rogers, to the left, are adorable with the scalloped edges!

All Things Fall Wishlist

All Things Fall Wishlist
Lately I cannot help myself from surfing the web and looking at everything in the different fall collections. I love colder weather, can’t wait to bundle up in sweaters and drink a ton of Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

Mossimo Cardigan
I am so excited to start wearing cardigans for fall! I love how flowy this cardigan is and how it can even be dressed up with a waist belt.

Kendra Scott Earrings
Kendra Scott earrings are beautiful! I cannot wait to get my hands on my own pair.

Tortoise Persimmon Collar
BaubleBar has so so many cute necklaces out right now. I think that this tortoise shell one would look perfect in many fall outfits.

Too Faced Cosmetics lipstick
These lipsticks are brand new and I have been reading really good reviews on them. The pigmentation is supposed to be amazing and long lasting! I love the deep purple for fall.

Essie nail polish
Essie has so many great polishes in their fall collection. I love this shade of green. I think it is neutral, yet perfect to pair with outfits I like wearing in the fall.

Plaid western shirtdress
I can’t wait to bring out all of my plaid! This plaid dress would be a perfect dress to transition from summer to fall with.

Kate Spade New York: Lola Avenue Rollins
I am addicted to all things Kate Spade. I saw this recently on the sale part of the website and I have not been able to get it out of my mind. The deep brown leather looks perfect for fall!

Ambrose Quilted Bootie
It was not until last fall that I got my first pair of booties. Since then I have been hooked. I love them with dresses, jeans and more. These from Sperry are gorgeous.
To continue all of my love for fall I will be doing a Summer to Fall Series on the blog next week! Look out for my posts related to the transition of summer to fall makeup, fashion, food and fitness!

Outfit: From Work to Going Out

Outfit

 

Versatility is so important when building a wardrobe. I always try and look for pieces that can be worn many different ways to get the most use out of them.

Above I love how this outfit can go from work to hanging out with friends with a few adjustments. Also, depending on your jewelry you can totally change the look of an outfit with different pieces.

A tip is to always have a running list of items you are looking for to amp up your style or basics that can go with everything. This way, when you are shopping you are doing so with a purpose.

Right now I am looking for the perfect neutral, cream blazer that can go with many different dresses and skirts in my closet.
