Bags, Bags, Bags!

Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to share my favorite bags at the moment with you all.

I have a thing for bags. Something I don't feel guilty about since that is one of the few accessories I am consistent about actually wearing. I tend to forget to put on jewelry or makeup sometimes now that I am living a SAHM life, but bags, I mean....

First off, we have this wonderful backpack style bag that I recently snagged from Crystal Faye's shop a few weeks ago. She has a pretty current IG account on items on her website and as soon as I saw her post this bag, I knew I had to have it. I have shopped with her before and love her products, and this one did not disappoint!

I ordered it and a week later it was at my doorstep.
I have been using it more and more in replacement of my diaper bag as it is hard for me to carry my bag plus the diaper bag on my shoulder. A backpack is practical and it fits most of what I need for the twins. 

You can find this bag here!

Next up is the traditional Longchamp LePliage, I rarely use this bag, but love it nonetheless.
I feel like I don't want to get it dirty or spill something on the inside, so I keep it stored away. I did use it on several trips I have taken and really did like how easily it hung on my shoulder and how I could find everything so fast. 

This next one was a quick snatch from the Park Cities Yard Sale FB group.
The owners of an embroidery online site posted that they had a few of these bags left and they were on sale for around $55. I have seen several bloggers post a similar bag like this, and it was priced around $200, so I jumped on this one since I knew we were making a trip to Florida a few weeks later. I love how wide it is, and it fit most of my beauty products that I needed for the trip. All in all, I love this bag!

As you can see I also love the color navy :)

For months before having the twins, I was browsing the net for a perfect diaper bag that was gender neutral, and could fit enough items for both babies. Enter Kate Spade's New York Diaper Bag. I like this bag, but I don't love it. It serves its purpose, but I get annoyed at how easily it slips off my shoulder, and it fits most stuff I need for quick trips out of the house, but definitely need an extra bag when we go on longer trips... It's beautiful, and it has not gotten as dirty as I would have expected so far, but I guess I have only used it for 6 months so we will see.

This next one is not just a bag. It is a symbol of something that represented a very busy and draining part of my life. I taught extra lessons, played weekend gigs, and recruited at more fiddle fairs for my colleagues than I would like to admit, but it happened!

We purchased this beauty for my 30th birthday and I have been in awe since the first moment I held it.
It is soft and light, it holds its shape completely on its own, and I could not be more proud of what I considered a big accomplishment for myself. 

What are your favorite bags you can't live without?

Do you also have a shoes/bag obsession like I do? 

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
