Is it Spring yet? It feels like the question of the moment much like the dreaded car trip’s, “are we there yet?” It looks like we might’ve skipped spring and headed right into summer. With the last few day’s weather though, it’s really too hard to tell. One moment it’s hot as can be and I’m breaking out my sandals and the next it’s too cold to go outside with a coat. The one thing that isn’t weather dependent in my wardrobe? A new purse!
I had a very exciting life moment happen yesterday: an essay I wrote was accepted by The Rumpus. The Rumpus is a very popular website and one that I hold near and dear for my dear Cheryl Strayed’s advice column, Dear Sugar, was featured there. It truly feels like a huge honor and I wanted to mark the day as such. Some people like I really tasty champagne to celebrate a big moment, I like investing in something I’ll have for a long-time and can use time and time again. I follow a lot of fashion bloggers on Instagram and one bag I kept seeing was Gucci’s beautiful GG Marmont shoulder bag. At first sight, I wasn’t sure if the bag was for me, but after a lot of looking around and hinging on such a celebratory day I felt like it was indeed the perfect fit. I love the beautiful peachy color, as well as the swoon-worthy hardware.
I’m excited that I can wear it as a shoulder bag, something I’m really attracted to because I usually have my hand’s full with a leash or a coffee, and I love that I could afford to mark yesterday in such a special way.
I will definitely be styling and photographing my personal bag when it arrives, but until then here are some images of lovely ladies out and about with theirs.
