“As far as I’m concerned, leopard is a neutral.”
When Jenna Lyons spoke those words, I think there was probably a collective “amen!” uttered by fashion-centric girls the world over, and that group absolutely included me. So it should come as no surprise that it was an instant love connection when I was introduced to Canadian handbag label HYM – not only are all the pieces drool-worthy, but the brand is fond of and particularly brilliant at creating leopard print pieces, including this cross-body bag that I literally can’t stop wearing these days.

As you guys might know already if you’ve been reading the blog for awhile, I’m a pretty classic dresser – I like my pieces to feel lived-in, comfortable, easy but somehow, they all need to have a stylish edge of some sort to make them special as well as functional. HYM‘s offerings completely fit this rather tall order, from the wear-with-everything cross-body The Oracle pictured here to The Jester clutch I’ve been drooling over. I also can always get behind a brand that not only offers exceptional products, but a heart-centred message that drives the brand forward – HYM’s philosophy is all about creating products with love and if my experience with my cross-body bag is anything to go off of, I’m definitely feeling the love from this amazing Canadian brand.

Speaking of love, I am absolutely loving life here in Maui. We’ve had a couple rainy days right at the onset of the trip but in all honesty, it’s been all good since it’s given me a chance to run some errands and do the road trip to-do’s I always feel guilty doing when it’s sunny out (heading up to Kula County, picking up all the things I inevitably forgot at home like sandals and a hat, etc). Today’s supposed to be blazing hot and sunny all day so be sure to follow along on Instagram with the hashtag #mauiorbust to see my day by the sea! And finally, congratulations to Jenn Erin! You’re the winner of my Keltie Leanne giveaway – thank you so much to everyone for entering and Jenn, keep an eye out on your inbox!
A big thank you to Hym for partnering with me for this post.
