Briefcase Bags and Market Runs

Procrastination is looming. Over 2 hours spent making a playlist to keep me company while I clean my mess of a room? Definitely the height. Going gaga over interior design ideas for another 2 hours and coming  up with a million and one ways to revamp the flat? Definitely solidifies it.  And now, messy room intact, the question at hand is whether or not to jet on over to the antique market. I doubt I'll find a lot seeing as it's been open since dawn, but it's worth a shot and will make for a pleasant walk since we're enjoying a relatively mild day here.

The scarf was a Christmas present that does a terrific job at keeping my neck warm. Given the amount of wool in that thing and how much time it took for me to get used to it, it better keep me warm. I've wanted a briefcase bag for a wee bit now and this one from I Miss You perfectly satiates that. The crocodile leather, rich green colour and gold clasps make it my absolute fave. 

Okay, I'm off to the the market now. Feist's remake of Francoise Hardy's l'amour ne dure pas toujours is coming along. Having a clean room will have to wait. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Talk soon.

oh dear, how well do I understand you on the 'procrastination' subject- it is all because of too much work to do! and the pressure to do it well...
... I do LOVE that briefcase bag. It is quite perfect. Love the colour, the material and the handle... couldn't even believe it was golden at first!

I hate to sound like a broken record and just repeat what everyone else has said, but I love that bag!
The best thing is it's the sort of thing that will just get better with time, I love aged leather.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

That bag is amazing, Abi... and I quite like the song too. Took me a while to hunt it down in a version "available in my country," which weirdly seems to have a video of a Neighbours montage. Random...

Kavery said...

What a smart bag. I think its what everyone noticed right away!

Ria said...

Love the look and I love the scarf. Favorite is the briefcase bag and the coloring of it.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Procrastination can be a good thing - especially when it adds to bigger playlist. This is a wonderful outfit, and I adore the bag!

Angelica Ng said...

Ooo loving this outfit so so much! That scarf is the perfect Christmas present. Wish I got something like that!

Abi said...

@April Rose: girlie, I'll gladly trade in all this snow for a ray of sunshine

@Emily: glad you found the song. I just realized it's been restricted here in Canada too. Pooey! I don't see the correlation between the song and Neighbours. Random indeed

@SabinePsynopsis: true that. Bigger playlists for the win. Clean rooms can take a back seat

JoaNNa said...

I love the green with the neutrals here - just wonderful. I love the subtle patterns too.

And I'm so pleased someone else can put off the inevitable cleaning. That makes me feel better about the fact that I do the same.
