Bag Lady

Tote c/o Neena & Co // Parka // Jeans // Booties  Similar Here
There’s nothing like a hot bag with an honest mission. This tote from Neena & Co is not only aesthetically pleasing but serves a greater good. Girl boss, Ali Hynek, behind Guatemalan textile and bag company Nena or “darling” as her mother fondly calls her, has been gracing young and old with her bags since 2013. Nena & Co sports textile designs that are not only hand loomed by locals but one of a kind that don the likes of totes, day bags and weekenders. One of their recent collaborations with Sadegua was born out of the need to lower the infant mortality rate in the Guatemalan highlands by educating women to deliver babies. In addition, you can follow their Peace Pilgrim blog to keep updated on how they’re giving back whether its providing purified water or auctioning off a day bag to donate school supplies to remote village children in Guatemala. I love the merging of fashion and mission. Thankfully, this tote’s multiple colored patterns easily styles the blackest of parkas and its supple leather takes a good beating (or just some toddler love) for the greater good.

Love this look! I don't think the link is working for the shearling coat :/ But super cute as always.

Thanks for the heads up, I removed it since it won't seem to work.

I really love how my bag is light and doesn't feel heavy even when its loaded with things of course. It is very fashionable and I love using it to school.

Your style is impeccable! I love how you manage to look chic while toting 4 kiddos – not an easy task.

That "flame" coat is now on my wish list thanks to you! Keep doing what you do!

Happy Thanksgiving! Love the grey booties! Do they run a size small, like the website says? Or did you order your true size?

Happy Thanksgiving! The kiss the dirt boots run 2 sizes small and the Kivers I also linked are TTS. Order a 1/2 size up if you're in between sizes xo
