Seven Things:

IMG_0912

I’ve always loved internet round ups so I thought I’d start doing them at least once a month. I’ve made a few before, but this time I’m making a format and going to try to stick with it. So here are seven things from around the web!

  • Since I’ve started working again I suddenly need to wear less of my beloved denim and more dress pants. These slacks are going to be the only ones I buy from now on.
  • It’s a dream come true! Joanna Gaines is opening a line at Target. Excuse me as I go buy things for the apartment I have yet to move into.
  • If you’re a bookworm and/or a writer, this twitter feed has been making me laugh recently. It’s been a wonderful addition to my timeline, because I’ve recently done a lot of unfollowing to get rid of politics and bring in things I love.
  • I saw this seven year old being a fashion CEO on my Facebook timeline the other day and started laughing very loudly in my cubical. This is basically how I imagine the fashion world works.
  • This song off of Thomas Rhett’s new album is sublime. I’m obsessed with it.
  • My last blog post on mental health got featured. It’s the first time that’s ever happened, so I was beyond excited to see it. I’m really glad I added that category to my blog this year.
  • I love good satire news, I recently found the Christian version of the Onion.  I didn’t expect it to be so good.

Bags, bags, and more bags:

Recently I’ve been looking for a really good tote bag, and I couldn’t decide if I liked leather or canvas more. I’ve been keeping my eyes out in stores, but nothing around here seems to be carrying anything close to what I’m looking for. So I turned to online. A ton of department stores have similar bags,  but I found that the small home-made ones won out this battle of the bags. Both Leah Lerner and Julia Marco have amazing bags on their Etsy store, so I thought I would share both of them with you.

I’m really into the classic clean cut, and I think these bags are timeless, not to mention made of a nice enough material to last a while, the four here run between $62 and $170. I wish leather wasn’t so expensive. Everything I owned would be leather if it weren’t.
