Buy me maybe?

 Hey hey it's Thursday!  But it's another Friday for me.  I know.  You're all thinking, does this girl ever work five days?  I have a lot of time saved up and my employer is very generous with it's time off program.  This is my last short week for awhile though.  Back to normal next week.  Anyway, since it's my Friday and since it's cooler outside, it's time for the return of my favorite plaid pants!  Those who have been following my blog for awhile know how much I love these pants.  And patterned/printed pants are totally on trend this year, so I know I'll be wearing these a ton again!

So, I'm showcasing my new purse a little bit more today.  I've been trying so hard not to buy purses you guys, but when I was up north this weekend we went into one of my favorite little purse boutiques and before I knew it, I had this one in my hands.  I don't listen to a lot of pop music, but I am familiar with Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" - partly because of all the parodies of it.  Anyway, this purse went all Carly Rae on me.  It said "hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but you like purses, so buy me maybe?  All the other girls will want to take me, but you love purses, so buy me maybe?"  And I couldn't resist.

It's crazy versatile though, which is becoming more and more of a requirement when I buy a bag.  I like that it can be a shoulder bag or a crossbody.  It has a bajillion pockets.  I love the flap that folds over the top of it. And burgundy is perfect for Fall.  Can you blame me for taking it home with me?  I did get rid of a couple of purses when I cleaned out my closets last week.  I have two more I'd like to sell, but haven't had much luck consigning - they're both Coach, but slightly loved.  If anyone is interested, I'm willing to sell them pretty cheap.  Message me and I'll send pictures.  I'm not joking.  They're nice purses, they're just not my style anymore.

See what I mean - this purse just draws you to it and says take me home!  My mom and my music director loved it too and bought one in other colors.  So we're purse triplets now!

  1. Happy Thursday/Friday! I'm off tomorrow too :) You look great Beth! Love the plaid pants and your very feminine blouse. The color of your purse is so in trend for the fall. Love it!

  2. Totally cracking up with your parody of that song! That really made me smile :) This is a great purse so no wonder you purchased it. Loving the plaid pants too. They just scream fall. Heather

  3. Great pants! I love the check.

    The bag is nice - is it leather? I'm not much of a bag person, but I like a well-constructed practical (and yet pretty!) bag.

  4. Lol! It is a very cute purse though!

  5. That bag is great for the fall in that popular burgundy shade! The title of this post made me laugh :) Happy "Friday" again to you! Can I work for your company? haha.

  6. Great bag...I love that colour!!

  7. Hey! I love your trousers too- never mind the bag ;-) I'd love a pair of those! (The bag is pretty too, but those trousers...)

  8. Yay for extra long weekends - they really are the best! And those plaid pants are so fun! I love them for fall. They'll be great with a scarf and sweater as the weather cools down!


  9. YAy for short work weeks and long weekends! So jealous girl :)
    That is a great purse, maybe I'll see it saturday :P

  10. I love the pants! I can't wait to pull mine out, mine are wooly though and have to wait for cooler weather. I'm kind of in-love with your burgundy bag (to the point that I just googled the shop). I think it was a great purchase. A good way to do a trendy color in a functional piece that will stay classic as long as you carry the bag.

  11. The new purse is cute. I'm taking tomorrow off too, and I'm excited for a long weekend.

  12. Haha! This post made me laugh today :) I love your new purse! I'm kind of on a purse kick right now though, so I'm right there with you on your addiction!
    Your necklace is SO PRETTY. I love the flower detail!!

  13. I really love those pants - and girl I would love to work Mon - Thurs every week... Enjoy your weekend!


  14. OH I adore the bag! I would not have been able to resist it either! Haha :) I love your pants, those are so cool!

  15. I loved your parody- It's echoing in my head now!

    And I would have taken that bag home, too... there is only so much a girl can reasonable be expected to resist!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
