Giveaway :: Jennifer Ladd

{please visit Jennifer Ladd here}

My everyday bag is functional, simple, large, and roomy. I carry a bag that fits my lifestyle (note how the word ‘style’ is in there!) While it is necessary to have a large enough bag to fit my daily needs, this doesn’t mean I carry around a huge bag full of stuff. Rather, I am quite meticulous about the organization and tidiness of my bag because there is nothing worse than not being able to find what you need, when you need it. My solution? Clutches and coin purses and pouches. I meticulously seek out gorgeous and vibrant smaller bags to carry the essentials in my larger bag. It works, believe me. And the plus side? If you find the right clutch, you can pull it out to carry to an al fresco dinner on these last warm nights of  “Endless Summer.”

I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Jennifer Ladd. Ladd creates sophisticated yet fun clutches, wallets, coin purses, and handbags with vibrant and modern prints. Each piece is handmade and the chic simplicity of each design adds exactly the right amount of whimsy your fingers wish for. The Blue Birds and Kumquats Clutch is favorite of mine. To be perfectly honest, I am quite particular about my clutches and pouches and I am so excited to share this find with you. This “Endless Summer” is all about giving.

    A classmate whom I had never spoken with once approached me after class and told me I had great diction and a wonderful speaking voice. It made my day and gave me a surge of confidence!
    A close second is that a stranger once tapped me on the shoulder and told me I had a beautiful laugh. It made me happy to think my laughter made some one else happy!

    I’ve been told I have strange eyes. In a good way of course.

    The daughter of my father’s friend told me at our first meeting that I had a beautiful smile (complete with my crooked jaw and mouthful of braces that I was rather self-conscious about). As an impressionable and still immature 13 year old girl it made my day and taught me that when we have true joy, our smiles are always beautiful to the people around us :*) (that’s my braces shining haha)

    I really value a simple “thank you” when holding a door for someone, helping someone in my apartment building bring in their groceries, etc. It shows that in a world where many of us are busy with our own concerns, a helping hand is still appreciated by many!

    A man once told me my nose saves my face from being beautiful. I’ve always taken that as a really perspective altering compliment, because I had a longstanding love-hate with my nose and had never thought that it might be one of my most interesting features.

    I was driving back to work from a doctor’s appointment and I had asked my husband the night before if the car needed gas and he said no, it should be fine. Then, about a mile from work, on a busy road during the beginning of the lunch rush, my car sputtered to a stop at a light and wouldn’t get going. Out of gas, oh no. I had never had this happen to me before and had no idea what to do. Angry businessmen in convertibles were leaning on their horns while I tried to wave them around me. I was really starting to freak out (and tear up, because I cry when frustrated) when an older man approached my car. He walked me through how to put the car in neutral and offered to steer it while I pushed it (we just had to get it around the corner to a side street). After he helped me get my car out of the way, he told me that this sort of thing happens to everyone and not to let it or the angry people who had been honking and yelling ruin my day. It was exactly what I needed to hear as I locked my car up and started walking to the gas station down the street. That man’s kindness made a real impression on me!

    I was grocery shopping when a complete stranger walked up to me and told me I had a beautiful smile. It was a wonderful compliment that made me feel great.

    when strangers told me its inspiring how beautiful I interact with my family- we were out all day- and decided to have a dinner out. There was nothing around but one upscale restaurant – candle lights, etc. – I was so stressed out that someone would start  making noise or something ( 3 children under 6;)  and perhaps ruin another couple’s romantic evening- but instead the little ones were acting like angels chewing on calamari;) – and  our “next table neighbors” gave us a complement and put me at ease.
