the lexi satchel

Oh man. I've woken up super late two days in a row now, meaning that I didn't have time to snap any outfits of the day for yesterday or today. Apologies! I did end up showing up early to the office both days, though. I don't even know how that works.

On another note, being the spend-happy person that I am who cannot resist a good sale, I got this lovely thing during J.Crew's 20% off promotion:

Lexi Satchel from J.Crew

I couldn't help myself, especially when I was hurting for a bigger bag and my coveted Kooba Jacinda is nowhere to be found. And this one just has some precious details! The tassels! The messenger-style capability! The lush dark grey color! Love, love, love. It's scheduled to arrive on my doorstep next Monday, and I hope it does not disappoint in person. Come on, J.Crew, don't fail me now!
