online browsing

While waiting for assignments and phone calls, I've had a considerable amount of time to spend on the internet. This, paired with my slowly recovering bank account and love of new summer clothes, has become almost deadly. Hours have been spent browsing store after store, adding new shorts, sandals and shirts to wish lists. In my own little head, I imagine they sit there like the aliens in the claw machine in Toy Story, waiting for my next payday to free them to arrive on my doorstep. Needless to say, I've formed quite a bad habit, quite extensive wish lists and quite the material imagination.

One product, however, has really caught my eye. While cruising for a potential new purse, I found this beauty of a shopper bag in Zara's online stock.

This fun, summery white bag is everything I never knew I wanted. The perforated look gives it the retro feel I was searching for and the color makes it different from any other bag I've owned. As basic of a color as it is, white anything is always adventurous to someone known for accidentally spilling coffee or having pens burst in the dark crevices of my purses. Call it a journalist's curse.

Either way, this bag just jumped to the top of my list. I can't wait to tote it to work, the pool and the lake this summer. The bag costs a pretty penny for a college kid, sitting at a cool $79. But shipping and returns are free, and the use of the bag will outweigh the price in the long run.
