I was doing a little window shopping with my kiddo the other day when I stumbled upon my dream purse(s). See, I’d pinned the bigger Marc Jacobs bag in black months ago, and I loved it so much that I created an outfit around it. But now it comes in the perfect pinky peach? Be still my beating heart.
Ah, but then I saw its smaller but equally lovely counterpart. So I did what any rational person would do; I slung one on each shoulder and took photos in the mirror with my cell phone while my tutu clad toddler ran circles around me.
What? She was totally fine. She had a balloon to keep her company.
