my new bag.

My purse straps were beginning to crack, probably because I carry way more things in it than I should and it probably couldn't handle the heaviness any longer. I'm pretty picky about purses. It has to be big enough to act as my "diaper bag" but not look like a diaper bag. I like leather but am really picky about the colors out there, it has to be just right, and not shiny or thin looking. I like canvas bags but I don't like them plain Jane or look like it's a beach bag. So I decided to create my own purse/bag/carry all.

I've named it the Taryn Tote, after the girl I will most likely never have... I'm in love...

Chambray because recently I've been in love with it and it's neutral enough to go with everything but isn't boring looking. Durable canvas on the inside to keep it sturdy and ready for anything and everything I seem to have to carry around with me all the time. Real leather straps to help hold the heavy duty. A magnetic snap to offer some closure.

And a good sized pocket on the inside to hold my new i-phone {I'm no longer the only soul on Earth without one}, chapstick, and a fruitstrip from Target brand, they're my new obsession, I think I eat about 10 a day, I seem to have to carry those around with me too now, I won't confess how many I have stashed in my bag at the moment, but try some, really their good! {And yeah I'm pretty sure that's the world's longest run on sentence, but that's how I'm feeling right now}.


So what do you think? I can't wait to wear it out, I may go run unnecessary errands tomorrow just to show it off! You can go here to learn more about it.

I love this bag! It's simple, yet so sophisticated. I've been toying with the idea of making a lap top bag and retiring the plain black company issued one. This is sort of what I've had in mind for that. Thanks for the inspiration!! :)
