This week begins a new season of life for me. For the first time in three years, I am a stay-at-home-mom. When I went to work three years ago it was out of sheer boredom and loneliness, as we were still relatively new in town. With Macy’s deciding to discontinue Elizabeth Arden (which eliminated my job), Audley and I decided together it was a great opportunity for me to return to our home. My teenagers are actually thrilled over this, as is my husband, but mostly I think I’m relieved to have turned the page on that season of life.
So, I have shed the Macy’s black and brought back a little color to my life! For me, blue and white is the quintessential color combo of summer. Recently for an evening out with Audley to celebrate this new freedom of mine, I chose a pair of white Miss Me jeans paired with a blue and white striped top from INC (Macys… it was good for some things), and a fabulous pair of tan wedges by Steve Madden. To complete my look I carried a denim clutch with red pom poms and a tassel from Kustom Klutch.
Designed by Jordan Fish, girlfriend of NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin, these cute clutches are handmade in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Once you design your clutch and place your order online (click here to check out Kustom Klutch) your custom bag arrives in just a couple of days packaged so adorably cute and included a hand-written note.
My daughters wanted to tear right into it…. Oh wait, Madeline did!!
When you purchase your clutch, not only are you supporting a small and young business (these went live in June), you are also supporting a charity. Ten percent of each purchase goes to a charitable organization of Jordan’s choosing each month. When I purchased both of my clutches (couldn’t make up my mind…) in June, the charity of choice was the Denny Hamlin Foundation which is “committed to raising awareness and funds for the specific needs of children with cystic fibrosis.” For July her charity of the month is Pit Stops for Hope.
I was able to choose my bag and then added the tassel for a little whimsy. The clutches are very well made and perfect for a night on the town. You can easily fit your keys, a change purse with id and money, and of course a lipstick inside.
When your out for an adults night, leave the mom purse at home and go cute!
As I mentioned, I did purchase two of these fun clutches; the denim and red as well as a floral print (which looks fabulous with a royal blue sundress!). So much fun for a summer night out!
