9 or 29

I dressed so fancy yesterday, I felt the need to be casual today.
 Jean jacket - thrifted GAP kids, overbleached by me
T-shirt - thrifted
Jeans - GAP
Boots - Seychelles

I finally remembered to take a coat and bag photo today... this is pretty much what I look like when I go to work every day (well since the beginning of March, when it started to warm up and I could put away the REALLY thick coats). I tried to rock this coat indoors, but I've come to terms with the fact that it's more of an outdoor coat and a good transition piece for when it's not freezing but not warm yet. Oh, yeah, it is snowing today. Snowing. Today. And I have a bad attitude about it.
I found this vintage bag on Spool 72. I've been waiting for the PERFECT brown vintage leather school satchel for like three years. I kept being tempted to buy a new Cambridge one or something similar but waited and waited and waited instead. The shape of the bag looks a bit funny in the photo 'cause it's stuffed full of paperwork and my lunch and whatnot, so here is the glamour shot from Spool 72:
When I saw this one I knew it was the one. The girls from Spool 72 found it at a barn sale in Kentucky. And now I will carry it to work for THE REST OF MY LIFE. And when I die, people will fight over it. Which is too bad, because I'm going to be cremated then BURIED IN IT.

Dude. That bag is so utterly perfect in everyway, it actually brought a tear to my eye.

Well, maybe the SNOW IN APRIL brought a tear to my eye, but still. That bag is amazing.
