Good Morning and Happy Friday Loves!!
My apologies for not posting yesterday! What can I say, I was enjoying my time in Charleston just a little too much! I can’t wait to share the whole trip with you guys!
Funny story though!
Before heading out for this trip, I knew that I wanted a fun summer straw bag to take with me. In general, I had been on the hunt for one, but I just wasn’t sure which one I wanted to purchase for the season. Between this trip, a beach trip in June and my Bachelorette party in August, a straw bag has been at the top of my wish list.
I’m sure you guys have seen this other purse all over Instagram recently and while I think it is BEAUTIFUL, I am super over seeing it. I didn’t want to purchase a bag that every girl had, so I went on a hunt for a different one. I wanted to find a summer bag that was equally as cute but I also wanted it to be super efficient and at a better price point. So when I found this bag, I was so happy!
I was like “Heck yeah, this purse is perfect! No other blogger has it and it is totally unique – go me!!” Well….. haha I show up in Charleston, we check into our hotel, change our outfits to go explore the city and as we were walking out the door, Dede and I noticed we were wearing the exact same bag! So all week, we were total twins. It was so funny! So much for being unique lol! I mean, we took turns wearing it so we weren’t totally matching but we still thought it was so funny. All I can say is that at least it reassured me that I wasn’t the only one who saw this bag and thought it was too cute to pass up! I love Dede’s style, so it honestly made me 10x more happier with my purchase 🙂
The straw woven purse is from J. Crew and originally came with two little poms on it, but Dede and I both took our poms off so that it could go with more outfits! It has a card holder inside and the strap makes it perfect for wearing while exploring and being out and about. I am so bad with purses that I have to carry in my hand. That’s why all of my purses either have to have a strap or handle can fit on my shoulder. Everything else is just totally inefficient.
That’s why I love this bag so much! it goes with everything and it just in general so stinking cute.
Any who, I hope you all have a great weekend ahead! I’ll update you guys more on what we have going on this weekend on Monday!
