ALDO Alvito tote and H&M outfit

ALDO Alvito bag, h&m shortsHello my lovely friends! I think it is no secret that I love ALDO. I love them! Their designs are always a hit with me, from shoes to handbags. I love their things. Well, I am writing to today to talk about this beautiful faux leather beauty.The ALDO Alvito tote is a bag that brings that island feel, cute animals, and pineapples to you for your ultimate arm candy. All of those things make this bag a fave for me!

I first noticed this tote a while ago when out shopping for me for my mommy “me” time.(you can read that blog post here) And fell in love with the giant Cockatoos on the front and pineapple. I knew I wanted this bag, but I walked away from it. Only to think about it more later. Then finally I went back and huzzah it was on sale! SALE! I snatched it up! And I love it! This bag adds interest to summer outfits and it will be my bag of the summer.

ALDO AlvitoThis bag oh this bag! It is quirky and it is cute! LOVE it! Well done ALDO! Well done in deed. The inside of the bag is lined and has quite a few pockets even a pen holder. This is a great shopper tote. Big enough of a tote to hold my crap, my son’s crap, and my hubby’s crap. A tote of all totes and a cute one at that!

I styled this bag with a simple outfit for summer. A few days ago at H&M I found some really comfy shorts and got a nice powder blue top to go with them. I decided to wear them with some leopard printed ALDO Olivia flats. The leopard print kept with that animal theme since there two giant Cockatoos on the tote! I kept the outfit simple as it was so hot and humid outside and since we were zoo bound I didn’t want to sweat to death outside. So comfort and style played a key role.

I am going to go back for a few more pairs this weekend. Can you blame me, the shorts are super soft too! They have an elastic waist and pull string for keeping them on better as well as for that jogger look.

I didn’t tuck my shirt in because, well I was lazy?

I am always looking for places to shoot pictures and this was a spot I eyed a bit ago. I think next time I will fiddle where I place the camera, as I got a lot of glare back from the stark white bag. OK, and my pale ass legs.

My son just doesn’t want to sleep all night. He gets up at 2AM and thinks it is morning. Well, I mean it is but not the kind of morning where you get up and play till you can not play no more. It was dark out, it was 2AM! So, after some how, just letting him play to death for an hour I got up made him a cup of his Lactaid milk and put him in the bed with us and his blankie. He fell asleep.

    You’re right. That tote is adorable. I love the colors and fun birds chilling with the pineapple. Though I’d take that puppy with me anywhere, how appropriate that you took it to the zoo! Those shorts look so comfy and the pocket is def a BONUS! Thank you for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
