Favorite Spring Trend – Straw/Woven Bags

Are you ready for Spring yet?  We have actually had quite a cold Winter down here in Florida, I know it doesn’t compare to what the Northerners have endured but our heat has come on more times that I can count.  Now that I’m out of maternity clothes I am ready to revamp my closet.  I do say that lightly because just about every shirt I wear ends up with something from Patrick on it.  I just love wearing black tops around him apparently.  Every site right now is all about Spring.  One trend that was big last year and making a full comeback is straw bags.  I was obsessed with this bag last year and it sold out so quickly.  Well, this year it’s back in stock and I snagged it.  It is such a great size to make a statement to any outfit.  I love how lightweight it is also.  I also grabbed this little crossbody.  It’s a great price point and adds a great pop of color.

I shared this story on Instagram but life with an infant now.  On Saturday I was all ready to shoot some new Spring content.  I had my hair curled, actual makeup on and a husband who was willing to shoot multiple looks.  My first indication as I tried to put him in his car seat was his pants were a little wet, I was like it’s okay let’s power on.  Then he spit up a little bit….still I was like it’s all good and wiped it up. As Mark was pushing him to put him in the car, he unloaded a HUGE spit up/throw up all in his car seat.  Well…..clearly he did not want to go out and take blog pictures.  I cleaned his whole car seat and we went for a walk in the neighborhood instead.  This kid wins and rules the roost for sure.  I’m 100% okay by it but it’s funny all the little things you take for granted before a kid comes into play like painting your nails or having a nap ;-)

    I definitely like the woven bags a bit more than the bamboo ones that were popular last year – I still dont know how you fit stuff in there!! Love how much you can fit in the black woven black!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    That story sums up motherhood perfectly! I love how you styled these bags and now I feel like I need to snag them immediately because it will be warm weather before we know it!

    I’m a big fan of this trend! I have that little square crossbody from amazon, and I absolutely love it. Perfect for vacations and the warmer months.

    I love that bag you have!! It is so cute, and such a great price point. I really need to hop on the AG jean train too.

    Love that dress and both of those bags!!! Those jeans look great on you too! Sorry about Patrick and the car seat incident. He is SO precious though and I love seeing your Instastories with him! :-)
