day 30

This Raj brown leather fringe tote doesn’t get excessive use, but I’ve had it a long time. I got it at TJ Maxx around 15 or so years ago. It was fun to use today while out and about shuttling the girls around the world and back.

day 29

Fossil colorblock at Music Hall for West Side Story: film with orchestra. It was excellent. So is this pebbled leather. This is a bag that once I start i carry it for a long time. I’ll miss it tomorrow. I did get this at the St. Vincent de Paul for $12.50 I think. A fave.

day 28

Woven bag that I use as a purse and a book bag. Here it’s loaded with books for church tomorrow. I’m doing the children’s sermon, and I can’t decide between the three books in the bag. I’m sure I’ll decide by tomorrow morning.

day 27

You would not believe how soft this leather is. I could sell tickets. Usually, I’m not into chain straps. I made an exception with this DKNY black quilted bag because it has a leather strip threaded through the links so it’s not so loud. Only thing that doesn’t fit is my water bottle.

day 26

Today this Rebecca Minkoff tote called me. What a hottie. I’m tired. But this bag is always on.

day 25

Dumped the contents of the orange Latico into this coated cotton Fossil. Got this one at goodwill a few years ago. I love the retro flowers and the keys. This bag is an instant mood boost. Note the cute feet on the Latico.

day 24

Another rainy day calls for a bright orange bag. I got this leather slouchy hobo from Latico at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the moment. It offers that pop of color when you want to wear blue or other neutrals – although I don’t ever wear it with just black. It was perfect today with my favorite Calvin Klein blouse and black and white checked pants. Yes, i wore two patterns and a bright orange bag today. And it was amazing.

day 23

Calvin Klein in chartreuse made my rainy day brighter. Many of you know that I’ve changed my attitude about the weather. It’s going to do what it’s going to do, so i get the right gear and head out with a thankful attitude for the gift of another day. I have colorful purses that I save for rainy days. Gotta use my red umbrella so the buttery leather doesn’t get wet.

day 22

Devi Kroell for Target from maybe 12 years ago. Looks just as great as when I bought it. Hobo style, snakeskin pattern, fits well on my shoulder – an overall great bag.

day 21

baggalini gold

I have a few baggallini bags because they’re lightweight, well-made and often found at thrift stores. This one is a cute crossbody in gold that I’ve had for around five or six years. baggallini bags are great for travel and can be found in lots of different styles and colors at TJ Maxx. But why pay $15-$40 when you can find them at the thrift store for $4-$10?
