If you’re a teacher on the go, mom on the go …. (or anybody on the go!) … you really need a durable and roomy everyday handbag in your life. And of course it must be fashionable! Mellow World sent me this Mia bag and it’s all those things and more.
Isn’t the little gold lock cute? There’s even a cute little key for it!
The black and ivory goes with everything, but check out the other cool colors too.
My very favorite feature? It’s so roomy and has so many compartments! No more tough decisions about what to bring with me. It will ALL fit!
The Mia is so practical. For one thing, it’s water resistant. And you can even wear it with the cross body strap when you need to be hands free.

Mellow World has such a variety of handbag styles that I just had to include a few more of my favorites here for you to check out:
It’s time for this teacher to go back to school! Remember when school didn’t start until after Labor Day? Me too! Oh well, we get out in May, so I can’t complain.
Thanks to all my Instagram followers who voted on what I should wear for the first day of school! This outfit was the winner! I did change from a white tee to this dressier black top, realizing that the jacket probably won’t last long in the heat, so I better have something nicer on underneath.
The heels might not last all day either, so I’ll stick some flats in my book bag!
Details: Karen Kane blazer (Macy’s), Calvin Klein tank (also Macy’s, also worn here), b.i.y.a.y.c.d.a. skirt (thrifted), Apt. 9 pumps (Kohl’s), & London Fog handbag (Marshalls).
And a doggy photo bomb shot …
So, if you were a high schooler, would you want to learn literature from this lady?!
What if I brought the dogs with me?!
Wishing all the teachers and parents a very happy back-to-school transition!
There’s a time in every teacher’s summer when the new school year starts to loom large … we start thinking of lesson plans in the shower, planning what books to teach while doing laundry, and wake up in a cold sweat from nightmares about uncontrollable kids! Then there’s the deciding what to wear on the first day of school. If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ve probably already voted for a first day outfit, but if you’re not following me … well, why not?! Follow me! (@fashionshouldbefun) We’re having fun over there!
I’m sure to do several posts on back-to-school outfits, but I felt like doing a fun outfit post today! And what’s more fun than leopard print, purple suede, and a new fav designer bag?!
Wearing an Old Navy perfect tank and distressed Flirt jeans, Merona (Target) leopard print cardigan, Aerosoles “Dolled Up” pumps in purple suede, Ralph Lauren sunglasses, and my new fabulous MK bag!
These new suede pumps are so comfortable that I could wear them anywhere.
Of course I added some arm candy, including vintage cuffs, a J. Crew gold cuff, and a wrap bracelet from Jest Jewels.
I love the color of my new Michael Kors Fulton Chain bag.
MK calls it “vintage yellow” … what would you call it, Dolls?
Aww … the calm before the storm that is the first week of school. I’ll try to keep up on my blogging, but if I do fall a bit out of the loop, you’ll know why. And I will be back! I have some fab collaborations just around the corner … think FALL!
Didn’t quite make my mark on this last shot, but I liked the photo anyway. You can see our little cabin nestled in the California redwoods!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog …
and enjoy every precious moment of summertime, my sweet fashion dolls!
