I seem to be really obsessing over trivial things lately. I can't seem to concentrate my head on the things that really matter and get any real work done. I meant to clean my dirty house today, I really did. But I instead ended up trying on probably 50 pairs of pants in 12 different stores trying to find the perfect pair of wide-leg linen pants. Which I never found. I mean really, why is no one selling linen pants? Anyway, I got no grocery shopping done, no clothes folded, no floors mopped. Add to that list, no reading done for my research, no sewing done for the ka-zillion projects I have in my mind. Then I came home and took a nap. I've got total summer brain drain it looks like. I've literally spent the last hour surfing trying to come up with the perfect tote. I'd love to make it myself, although these very talented seamstresses also deserve our money. Not to mention it'd probably hold up so much better. But then I find myself wondering why in the world do I want to carry a tote bag around for school? I'm sure it will kill my shoulder with all my books. I just love the look of it is all. It's not really practical. So I'm spending time looking for things that I don't really need, that aren't either relevant or practical for my life. I could be reading a book, or making something. Here's the inspiration I've amassed.
I'm definitely seeing a trend here, I like natural fabrics and colors, a fairly boxy look and pretty short straps.
By the way, all of these bags can be found at etsy
any opinions are welcome, about the bags that is- not my ennui.
okay, that's it! I'm making a vow. No surfing, no TV, and no shopping for one week. Let's just see if my productivity increases. I should add to that no drinking, but seriously- it's summer.
