The DIY ruler clutch purse styled today is one of my favorite Hands Occupied projects of all time. Since the clutch is so bookish, and the theme I’m following this month on the blog is back to school and getting ready for college, I wanted to go all out with this one. The tights, light scarf and cardigan are perfect layering elements for early fall weather, and the cheeky glasses print dress of course jumped out to me with my librarian sensibilities. Finally, the play on a primary color palette only seemed appropriate for back to school time.
