I think both of those pieces would really add something to the space and act as a central focus without being hard to match because of the color. Anyway, thanks for the giveaway opportunity and would be elated if chosen!!

    Lacey says:

    I am OBSESSED!

    I have been looking for an awesome weekender bag but this one is absolutely perfect. I wear a lot of black and white and would love this neutral weekender. Going to NYC in October and this would be perfect.

    I love neutrals but almost all of my furniture is white with bright art all around! This pillow is the perfect pop of color!

    A pouch to match the weekender? What could be better. I love ARA Collective’s whole aesthetic. And tassels are the best (:

    I would be so happy if I won this amazing giveaway! Thanks so much for introducing me to ARA!

    nikki says:

    the indigo weekender is the perfect bag for me. I’m often back and forth from my boyfriend’s house and find it hard to find a bag that offers utility (need clothing options!) and fashion (a big bag in the big city that doesn’t look like I’m an actual bag lady). this weekender is both stylish and functional and I couldn’t be more excited if it’s soon on my arm!
