My summer bucket it-bag

Bucket / fabric / raffia / wicker bags have been such a strong trend since last summer and continue strong into this year too. So many choices to pick from, if you’re looking to get one, but I fell head over heels over this Zara bag you see here… I love slightly different style of the handles (horizontal and wooden) but really it was the colors that I just LOVED! So no surprise there LOL! 

The rust orange and blue complement each other so nicely and I love the very laid back style of it, slightly bohemian and definitely very summer-like.

I will carry it with me and shoot more content with it, so bear with me haha! I hope I won’t bore you to death with it.

Mind you though, that now it’s in stock but when I first saw it, it wasn’t. It just said ‘coming back soon’, so I of course checked the website like a maniac, because I just HAD TO have it. Luckily it did come back in stock as promised but if you would consider getting it, I’d say hurry up, because who knows how quickly it will go this time too!

Wearing: Zara fabric bucket bag; Forever21 cardigan (old, very similar here and here); AN Design white jeans (old, similar here and here); Chloe boots (gray here; beige here).

Random life facts:

So I’ve decided that I will start adding on some random facts or stories to my posts. If you don’t want to read them, you can stop right here, but if you’re interested I will add them on to the here.

Sometimes I have more things to share, but they have nothing to do with what I write about above and it feels random that I would mention something off the subject. So, this here, will be a good place to start sharing these…

1. In the summer, we love just hanging out in our hammocks out in the backyard. We have two, so no one has to fight over it LOL. The boys and myself, usually, are in one (it’s huge) and my husband in the other. Sometimes, on a very hot day, mosquitos can ruin it haha, but other than that, on a cooler day, there’s nothing better than relaxing and lounging in the hammock underneath a blanket if need be.

2. Weather forecast could not look better for the upcoming long Memorial Day weekend. Typically it’s a cold one for us, but looks like it will be a summer weather!

3. I recently watched ‘Madame Bovary’ with Mia Wasikowska. Always wanted to read the book, but somehow never got to it, but I came across the movie on Netflix and finally watched it. I love period/ historical movies with all the grand gowns and fashion from an old era. Next on my list: ‘The Duchess’ with Keira Knightley. I’ve seen it before, but a long time ago and want to watch it again. Have you seen it?
