I have been wanting the perfect crossbody bag for a long time.
I don’t need a small bag often, but sometimes my outfit just calls for something somewhat casual, but still polished enough to wear for a night out.
This Chloé Marcie crossbody bag has been on my want list for a long, long time. Sadly, at this price point, it’ll probably stay there much longer.
This great Marc Jacobs bag, however, is far more reasonable. I love the detailing on the closure and while, I don’t love it in black, I do adore it in this bright blue color. And since I wear so much black and navy anyway, it’d be great to have a pop!
Friends and fashionistas, my apologies for the spotty posting over the last year.
A third baby and a new post at a boutique public relations firm has kept me from doing what I really love to do most often, which is BUY STUFF, of course.
But I had to make time for this amazing Issey Miyake Prism Rainbow Tote. I am truly in love with all things “totable” as my young family is constantly on the go.
From business trips to playdates, I am always on the hunt for fabulous totes that make me look like I put some effort (even if I didn’t) into what I am wearing… and toting. This makes my skinny white jeans, t-shirts and Chuck Cons super chic in an instant!
I hope you took me seriously when I said that this blog was going to be heavy on the shoes and handbags for a while. They are a pregnant girl’s best friends after all.
It’s so nice when you’re as big as a house and it all still fits.
Today, it’s this Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag with a top handle. If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you may have gathered that I have a “thing” for patent leather. And this structured bag is no exception.
This little Gucci bag-that-could isn’t too big, and isn’t too small. It gives me a little bit of a Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-pillbox-hat feeling, but is still a totally modern bag with it’s slight hobo-style silhouette. And you can hike it up on your shoulder while on a spree for more shoes and accessories than one could ever wear during a single pregnancy!
A crossbody bag, the perfect accessory for spring.
While I love big handbags, I’m really not one for filling them up.
That’s why this Burberry Berkeley Crossbody Bag is perfect for a girl like me. If I were to be honest, I regularly carry my wallet, lip gloss and my phone. While I may have other stuff in my bag, it’s not stuff I use often.
I can totally see this bag being the perfect size for a concert, the Summer Arts Fair, date night or dinner with my girlfriends.
Pair it with an eyelet sundress or white jeans and a flowy top, and it’s the perfect carry-most!
He’s excited. I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day. He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate. my Tomas the Train enthusiast. my personal shopper. my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!
