Don’t need, must have

These Day of the Dead correspondence cards from Smythson are simultaneously badass and elegant.

Tuesday trifecta

VereVerto circle bag—Tuesday trifecta

I keep seeing circle bags everywhere, and I’ve decided they’re kind of fun. They don’t take themselves too seriously, but at the same time aren’t perilously wacky. A good bag for bopping around on the weekend. This first one is rather sleek.

I like the neutral hue here.

 

Madewell circle bag—Tuesday trifecta

A nice, slightly rugged option.

Things I bought, things I want

Eytys sneakers—Things I bought, Things I Want

I’m pretty much over splurgy sneakers—give me some Vans or Nikes and I’m perfectly happy most of the time—but I did go in for these, because they are dead ringers for a beloved Isabel Marant pair I have that is now completely busted. Plus, they’ve got a subtle platform, which is nice for a little height. And they’re wicked comfortable.

Everlane silk blouse—things I bought, things I want

I think the blue on this silk button down is to die.

Frame Denim jeans—Things I bought, Things I want

Just a nice pair of boyfriend jeans in a good wash.

Karen Walker sunglasses—Things I bought, things I want

Lately I’ve gotten it in my head that I need a pair of pale pink sunglasses, and I think these would do just fine (there are also these, which are a good bit cheaper).

Shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

I like the idea of a backpack a lot—they seem like the choice of smart, cool women who have more important things on their minds than what bag to wear. And if you’re shlepping a lot around, they’re so much more comfortable than a big, heavy purse. I think I will go crazy if I try to write my entire book in my apartment so I’ve been scouting out other places that I can work, and thinking about bags I can carry my computer in too, and a backpack just seems to make a lot of sense.

Herschel backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

There is something quite appealing about a super-basic, no-frills nylon version.

Rebecca Minkoff backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

But this buttery leather pouch-shaped option is quite nice too.

Kara backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

Extremely minimal and super-chic.

Mansur Gavriel backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

A gorgeous, splurgetsatic blue suede choice from Mansur Gavriel.

Mango backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

This one kind of looks like the one from Mansur, but it’s super-cheap.

Elizabeth & James backpack—shall we take a moment to consider backpacks?

And I like that this looks like a bucket bag.
