Yay or nay?
I say: Are you effing kidding me! If this is the newest handbag trend, then I may as well expire today.

Did I mention that for our anniversary, the Husband got me a handbag he picked out himself. Those of you that don’t know him in real life cannot understand the significance of this, so I’ll tell you that it’s HUGE. Like a REALLY BIG DEAL.
Although he’s a great gift giver, he’s never actually picked something out for me to wear or carry on my person. And the best part is, I love it! It’s red. The Husband decided I need a red handbag! It comes from Anthropologie. Another smart move on his part. He figured if I didn’t like it, I could return it for the million things I love at that store. But it’s a keeper and every time I use it, I think how sweet it is that he picked it for me.
Tell me, what’s the most thoughtful gift you’ve ever gotten?
This is what the right side of my brain currently looks like.
The left side is on a diet.
I’ve already started to mentally pack for my upcoming trip to Fiji. I’m thinking all I need is a couple of swimsuits, sandals, shifts and totes to take me from day to night. I’m drawn to busy patterns and primary colors at the moment.
1. Printed bandeau bikini 2. Colbalt leather shoulder bag 3. Crochet swimsuit 4. Yellow sandal 5. Striped tote 6. Printed cotton kaftan 7. Woven sandal 8. Oval sunglasses 9. Straw floppy hat 10. Wavy stripe coverup.
I wear black about 88 percent of the time mostly because it makes me feel more expensive, but editorials like this have me longing for ruffles, brights and blush tones. Spring needs to officially happen. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go find more affordable versions of my below picks.
1. Malene Birger lagassi silk asymmetric-frill blouse $265; 2. Lee Angel chantal embellised opal drop earrings $155; Kenneth Jay Lane 22-karat gold embellished bangles $375; 4. Gucci square framed metal sunglasses $295; 5. Versace large leather trimmed raffia tote $1,295; 6. Anita Ko infinity 18-karat rose gold diamond ring $5,280; 7. Stella McCartney satin contour bra $140; 8. Miu Miu perforated patent leather peep toe pump $650; 9. Zimmermann ruffled strapless suit $345.
