fun stuff

So, this morning I was doing a little blog reading over on Waiting On Martha. It was a post about How To Start Investing. {Side note: 2016 has been a much more disciplined and grown-up-feeling year for me so far — a whole three and a half weeks into it, ha. I’ve been tracking my spending and my calories, and it’s been eye-opening to say the least. *huge-eyed emoji* Anyway, so now I am apparently the girl who reads posts about investing and recently started dabbling in just that, via the Acorns app.} But this post here isn’t about anything cool like investing, it’s about fashion {much more “typical me”}. As I was reading the post about investing, my attention was completely derailed by this photo in the slideshow.


It was from a post by The Sartorialist. I do peruse his blog regularly, but hadn’t seen this particular shot when he originally posted it. But I’m glad I came across it today, because I’d like you to notice the cute beaded bag here.sartorialist girl w same bag…And here! Yep, that’s me, in a pic from my own blog post here exactly one year ago today. What?! {Okay, I actually just now noticed this post was one year ago today. Coincidences are so weird. What are the chances I’d see a blog post today that was actually posted yesterday, with a pic from another blog post that was posted months ago, and then go back and find the pic from my post and notice it was one year ago today. Anyway.}me with pretty bagI love Scott Schuman’s work {he’s pretty much the O.G. of street style photographer bloggers} and my whole style-life would be made if I ever landed on a post at The Sartorialist. It’s never gonna happen, those people are so much cooler and classier than me. But I can now say I have a bag that’s been featured on there. I noticed her drawstrings were white instead of black, and my bag has blue dots while hers doesn’t, but close enough. And I got mine secondhand! :)

It’s funny, because I talked in the post about how the handle of my bag started falling after a month or so of carrying it, and I noticed the girl in the pic is holding her bag by the drawstring loops, so maybe that’s what I should do — since a year later, I’ve still never even attempted to sew it back together.

Anyway, I just thought this was a fun, cool thing, and I wanted to share it with y’all. Happy Tuesday!
