Autumn Obsessions | Crossbody Craze

My bag lady streak continues! As I began to compile some of my favorite fall finds, I realized that 99% of the links I’ve saved over the last few months were for crossbodys. Where does it end? Can this crossbody craving be satisfied? Why is one bag never enough!?

Because that’s just how the fashion industry works. Our aspirations seem possible when our desires are filled, but the fashion machine continues to produce more goods, and more fantasies, and just when we think we’re fulfilled, we begin to want something new, we begin to dream, and pretty soon we have new wardrobes and handbags and mountains of shoes and still feel empty inside.

In short, I love these bags. To death. That is all.

Why are HGTV shows and sites like The Coveteur or Into The Gloss so popular? They provide avenues for us to connect with others. They fulfill our curiosity. They give us ideas.

Mint, burgundy, dark grey, gold and brown… this is seriously my favorite color palette ever, so I had to document the outfit last week on my lunch break during work. I also can’t get enough of Q-Pot’s jewelry… the line is exclusively sold in Japan, and sadly the one U.S. store location on O’ahu closed. I guess I’ll have to cherish the pieces I have!
