Just a random outfit I wore earlier this week and didn’t post – I just love the Black Crane tops I got; the cotton is super lightweight and really beautiful. In fact, the pleated dress in this color (large) is on sale at La Garconne with an extra 20% off sale items with code 99SUMMER20. I was so tempted to get it in medium, but I don’t really like elastic waistbands or waistbands on dresses at all anymore. If you do, and you like the color, I’d recommend it – although it is final sale…
In my Marsell 4 Dritta Bag:
Comme des Garcons wallet | similar – mine is 5+ years old
Comme des Garcons luxury large pouch | similar – mine is 7+ years old
Jerome Dreyfuss popoche | similar – mine is 5+ years old
Baggu bags (regular and mini)
As I mentioned last week I ordered the Agnes Badoo crossbody bag with credits from Garmentory (when you use my referral link and sign up for an account you’ll get a $20 account credit and so will I) because I had been thinking about it forever. I love the brand for the structured look and that it has NO HARDWARE AT ALL – I dislike hardware on my bags now. And, I love the designer (woman) behind the brand. I also mentioned that I have a VERY hard time carrying/using small bags, which is why I don’t have any.
So. I carried it once running some errands last weekend, and I loved being hands free, but felt a little naked. I don’t have to carry everything I usually carry in my larger bags (image/details above), but I do need my wallet, at least one baggu bag, car key, lip balm, hand sanitizer, mints and my sunglasses. Out of everything, my sunglasses are the biggest issue, literally; my glasses themselves are HUGE, and I always use a hard case to protect them and my glasses when I’m not wearing them. This bag is too small for the case AND my wallet and the other things I need. Actually everything fits, sort of, but the flap doesn’t close all the way, and the bag is stuffed full, which is annoying because then I have to take everything out to get to my wallet. UGH.
Sometimes I can just keep my sunglasses in the car, but I don’t like to do that now because of the heat, and since I’ve had cars broken into several times before, I don’t keep anything out in the open anymore. And I know, maybe this is lazy…but it’s just too much to give up switching out wallets, etc., and rearranging everything to fit into a smaller bag. I want to have everything I need with me all the time.
Oh, actually – if I go back to emptying out my bag every day, Marie Kondo style, I could make this work!
I LOVE THIS BAG SO MUCH, so I will keep trying to find a solution, but when will I learn that there’s a reason I keep selling my smaller bags??
Still slogging through The Source (it’s getting better), but also reading The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes for my book club tomorrow. I will admit, I wasn’t very excited to read this book because, cue world’s smallest violin, I don’t get an overwhelming amount of invitations that I have trouble saying yes to, or no to, for that matter. And, I honestly don’t FEEL like I have trouble in this regard. But, I could stand a bit more fun in my life, and maybe I will learn how to say “yes” to doing things that might be quite outside my comfort zone. Anyway, I’ve wanted to be part of a book club forever, so I’m going to read it and go, if only for the community.
I purchased The Unit to read when I finished with everything after reading a blurb about it somewhere. It’s basically about a dystopian future which considers specifically women without children, and how they fit into society. It is written by a women without children, and I think it’s meant to be a statement that women have value themselves, separate from their ability or willingness to procreate. Should be interesting 🙂
No significant plans for the weekend, aside from book club, and lots of reading. I’d love to finish The Source this weekend and move on…
How was your week? Anything exciting planned for the weekend?
