Most of you probably don’t know this, but one of the reasons I started SMC back in my wee baby blogging days was that I’m a chronic overshopper. Give me a task, a specific piece to search for, and I’m like an obsessive-compulsive dog with a bone – I simply cannot stop until I’ve unearthed every possible option, in every possible shape and at every possible price. With a blog as an outlet, that pesky little personality flaw just turns into “content research.” This is why we all need jobs doing what we love.
Case in point: now that blue is the bag color this season, I’m finally ready to take the plunge. Mind you, I’m no fair weather convert to cobalt. I’ve been eyeing those baby blues for at least three years now. But this year, I think I’ve finally got it. My elusive white whale (well, it’s a blue whale I suppose, really) is right here:
Top Row: Gym Tote in royal blue, Reed Krakoff, $990 / Ruby in royal, Gryson, $695 / Edie purse in vintage navy, J.Crew, $238 / Center Row: Grove Court Large Maise in Yves blue, kate spade new york, $468 / Mini Gracie shoulder bag, Anya Hindmarch, $294 at The Outnet / Winged pushlock tote in navy, Topshop, $90 / Bottom Row: Atlantique satchel in royal blue, Reed Krakoff, $1,090 / Madison Isabelle in bright marine, Coach, $398 / Louiisa messenger in Tory Navy, Tory Burch, $435
