I’ve always been a sucker for these amazing South American patterns. I came across these Brazilian Ipanema Bags from some artisans (which you can buy online for $25) and I thought they would make the perfect summer accessory for runs to the farmers’ market, picnics at the park, and outings to the beach.
Aren’t these fabrics amazing? The next two are some of my favorites…
As a New Yorker, you can never have too many bags. That’s one thing I noticed when I moved here. EVERYONE was carrying a bag on the train, containing anything they needed to transport for the day. Instead of having cars and trunks to transport things, we have bags.
Also, I’m going to try and get better about taking bags from home to pick up things at the market. I know it’s just a little thing and saves a little bit of plastic trash. But every little bit helps.
P.S. Ever since my surgery, I’ve been LOVING wearing Danny’s jeans. He retired this pair so they’re all mine now. (I just looked them up and they’re the Uniqlo Slim Fit Straight cut. Size 31×34.) I just wear them kind of low & roll up the bottoms. They are SO comfortable. Now if I could just get him to tire of that belt I keep borrowing. 🙂 Also, the shirts from Uniqlo are still my favorite. I never had a white shirt until Danny – he insisted I get one because just loves the way it looks and fits.
