designer bag

No outfit posts again today as I'm just going to the cottage where the attire is always jean shorts, a tank and flip flops. Instead I have B A G S !!!
I am likely being sent to Vegas at the end of the month for an interior design blogger event (!!!!) and was thinking that I should take this opportunity to scope out some designer bags, and maybe come home with one. I have a hard time thinking of ordering one online and not being able to check it out in person before dumping so much money into it. (Although to note, I just bought one from a blogger's "cleaning out my closet" shop - more on that when it arrives from Switzerland). Here are some I found online that caught my eye. (Balenciagas are still my all-time favourite)

Fluevog sale!!!

I just got an email that Fluevog is having The 5th Annual John Fluevog Thinks You're Awesome Sale‏. I got all excited then went directly to the site to start checking out the new sales. NOT BAD! I found the following shoes that made my heart skip a beat. I think the Defen is my favourite.

Boo Boo

leaving, again

Off to the cottage we go, and this time for 9 days! I'm really excited and a tad nervous as I've never spent that long up there before, and never alone with Gia. We are lucky enough that Husband can commute to work and join us in the evenings. I've got visits from friends lined up, and am pretty sure it'll be one of the best weeks ever!

wednesday at the office

blouse ~ Spotted Moth (I think) {last seen here}
jeans ~ Citizens of Humanity Avedon low rise skinny via Aritzia {last seen here}
booties ~ Jeffrey Campbell's Arizona Python booties via Shopbop (these look AMAZING on and are comfy - but note they are super small. I'm an 8.5, bought a 9 and if they had half sizes a 9.5 or maybe even a 10 would have fit better - but if they really bug me I might get them stretched)
skinny belt & ring ~ ALDO
bracelet ~ gift from Greece from mom
necklace ~ F21

we're back!

Random things I discovered this weekend:
- cheap fireworks suck
- I am crazy allergic to deer flies
- we have a giant turtle living under our dock; his name is Mr.Tuttles
- Smores are even better when made with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- Caesars are a completely acceptable alternative to lunch
- hot dogs stuffed with cheese and jalapenos are AMAZING
- forgetting to put a top coat on your toes is not a good idea when spending 4 days in sand

(I walked around half the morning without noticing the random frayed string hanging off my shorts.)

tank: Urban Outfitters (also worn here)
shorts: AE
shoes: Toms

tuesday at the office

Sorry for the iPhone pics, I forgot to take my camera out of my backpack once cottage festivities were over. And I had to get a gratuitous tattoo shot (turns out you can see 2 of the 5...one of these days I should contort myself so you can see 4 of the 5...5 out of 5 would be impossible).

shirt, necklace, bracelet ~ Mexico
cropped linen pants ~ Winners
flats ~ H&M

I've been a fan of the Toronto shop Bookhou for a long time, and stumbled upon their Etsy shop recently so I thought I'd share their wares with you all. They have a very cool selection of bags that are graphic, kind of match with my new tattoo (LOL) and are perfect for everyday use. They've got pouches, clutches,  totes and bags (they also make gorgeous tea towels and storage boxes for those into some coolness for the home). You can find their goodies in their Etsy shop bookhouathome or their online shop. When they get back from vacation I think I'll finally get myself a tote or bag. :-)
