My life this week has been consumed by Downton Abbey, end of year school prep, baby prep, and completing this glorious crossbody bag. I have given up all searches of a bag until after the baby comes, and have returned all 3 of the previous options I had bought. Instead, I made my own to get me through summer. Isn’t it cute? I wanted to add some studs, but nothing too edgy or industrial, so I used the pretty flat gold studs and I think it’s the perfect little touch. Me and this bag are going to get along just fine. After baby I may have to shorten the straps since I made these extra long to fit over the belly. It’s funny to think that even purse straps have to be adjusted in consideration of a pregnant belly.
And is it weird, or just extremely immature of me, that whenever I say “belly”, I can’t help but think of the Austin Powers quote “get in mah belly!” On second thought, don’t answer that. Whoa, pregnancy delirium! Okay, off to watch an episode of Downton Abbey. I can’t believe they brought back that SOB Thomas. Linking up to WIWW & Monday Mingle.
