At the end of August I was talking to my sister on the phone and she mentioned these great bags we'd both been obsessing over at JCrew, and how by some miracle our Grandma had two Coach bags from the early 90s tucked away in her closet that had a really similar vibe. She also mentioned that she'd nabbed the navy one and had saved a dark brown bag just for me! I was beyond excited to receive my new-to-me Coach bag and I've been carrying it around ever since. I think it's perfect for the fall and matches almost anything without fail.
The most prized position in my prized bag is the Tumbleweeds sunglasses I picked up in Chicago from the amazing Beca! I wear them everyday, and keep them in a vintage eyeglass case I picked up at an estate sale this summer. It's important to keep your valuables safe. Alongside these jewels lives a random instax photo from our hotel in DC and an old grocery list. No editing the contents for this post.
I love packing and unpacking my bag throughout the week to remove receipts, and look through the scraps of whatever I've been up to lately. It's a little therapeutic for me. Besides the slightly strange and fabulous items there are always the standards; a wallet, my planner, lots of keys, my iphone, rose balm, gum. I've also been carrying around a postcard or two with birthday discounts to some of my favorite stores. October is just the best month (at least for me). As autumn moves further in I'll probably add a tied scarf to the strap and a loose pair of gloves just in case. I like preparedness as well as organization. I totally sound like a mom. Happy weekend everybody! big kiss, bekuh
