Good morning lovelies and Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re all having a phenomenal day so far. I’ve just been working on ideas for different and unique content and listing various ways to execute that. And of course, working my full-time job in marketing that I just got promoted for, woohoo!

Today I wanted to share a very chic, modern prep look and I wanted to really highlight these shoes and bag. I can’t say enough things about this fantastic and sturdy-as-hell bag from Aldo. It’s a serious dupe for the Gucci Sylvie bags but of course it’s a fraction of the price, so it’s a total steal. And the silky scarf wrapped around the handle comes with the bag. Ugh, I can’t say enough things about it. It keeps its form and shape so nicely; it’s just a great, high quality bag and makes any outfit pop. It reminds me a bit of a nautical look with all the colors, so that’s why I paired it with my blue and white anchor blouse – such a cute combo and the blue on the bag and the blouse matches so well!

Now… the shoes! These pumps are such a cute dupe for the Valentino Rockstud pumps and again, they were a fraction of the price. Such a chic and loud way to dress up a plain or neutral look, especially because the red is so bright, I really love it. I’ll link similar shoes below as I can’t recall where I got these, but I promise it’ll be worth looking into!

    Girl, those shoes! Omg, I have hearts in my eyes for those shoes since the moment I laid eyes on them. I just the structure, the straps, and studs. The purse is fantastic as well, I love the nautical theme. All in all, this is yet another classy outfit from you Martina!

      Thank you Gigi! I had such huge heart eyes for the shoes as well. 😉 I borrowed them from my friend Ali and unfortunately they’re no longer made where she got them (and they were SO cheap too, ugh) but that’s alright. I got to borrow them for a shoot so I’m grateful. Thank you so much for the comment!
