BookBags (1): Brand New Feature!


Monthly feature where I pair books with bags or share what's in a bag (mine or otherwise!) est. 4/2013.

New feature alert! So obviously I love books but my other love? Definitely bags. I never thought about putting the two together until a couple months ago when I noticed a book on my shelf would match perfectly with my new bag. (Anyone else ever get this thought? Just me? Yeah, I'm not surprised.) I couldn't stop thinking about this idea so I finally decided to give it a try. Here are my first bag + book picks!


The bag and book that inspired this feature! Yellow is one of my favorite colors and this is without a doubt, one of my favorite bags. It's just so bright and happy. I get a lot of compliments when I use this one.

I don't own this bag but there is a Kate Spade store right by my office. Last week, I noticed this on display and it immediately made me think of Fingerprints of You (review coming soon!). 

(3) The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa + Jessica Simpson Katie Satchel
I was staring at the many bags hanging on my door when I noticed a bit of purple peeking out. I grabbed it, stood in front of my shelves and my eyes zoned it on The Iron Daughter. When I held the two up side by side, I knew I had another match.

What do you guys think of the new feature? 
Think it's something I should keep doing?
I would love to hear your thoughts!

  3. I lovelovelove the Coach pairing. Firstly because Coach is on of my favorite bag brands, and also because it's such a cute combination! They all go really well together, though. I love this feature! I think it's fun and creative and totally the kind of thing I'd do with my life.

  8. Oh my goodness, I adore this feature! I don't have a huge bag obsession (more like I get obsessed with one and carry it for months and months & then find a new bag to obsess over and repeat the process) but I love looking at your pairings. Seriously, they all match so perfectly!
