My Dream Bag that I Finally Splurged On!

I found my Chanel dream bag for a great price used! - M Loves M @marmar

I have some VERY exciting news! I finally tracked down my dream bag! If any of you love designer handbags, you know how big of a deal it is when you finally can hold the bag you’ve been eyeing and thinking about. So some backstory: about 5 years ago Matthew and I were in Seattle and I went into a Chanel boutique just to take a peek at their pretty bags. You know, for fun! Chanel has always been the epitome of classic luxury and their handbags are incredibly lovely. Anyway, I saw this one bag that I immediately loved. I thought about it over our trip and then decided I couldn’t justify the high price tag. I absolutely loved it, but when you’re buying your first designer bag you can really talk yourself out of it. At least I could. Even still, I thought about it for years afterward. Years! I’d go into boutiques to see if they had it- no luck, and I’d browse on resale sites online – still with no luck. Then the other week I looked and I found it on a pre-loved designer website. The price was sooo much better than it had been when I was in the Seattle boutique, and the condition was “excellent,” – a few slight marks that I honestly didn’t notice or care about. Even still, I thought about it {for less than 24 hours mind you!} before I was like no I have to get it. I patiently waited for it to arrive, and I think my heart stopped for a quick second when I opened up the box. I have absolutely NO regrets – the bag is gorgeous, so classic, and I know I’ll wear it for years and years to come – and hopefully Corinna will wear it one day too! Sharing some photos of my new little beauty below, along with some other gorgeous handbags I have my eye on {all that can be bought significantly lower than retail if you find it pre-loved}.

Cute sweater and pants combos for fall!- M Loves M @marmar

Fall fashion can be really fun. It can also be really un-realistic. Especially if you look at the runway shows! Which is why I wanted to come up with a good professional outfit that you can wear that still feels stylish, but office appropriate. Not to mention warm, because I know no one wants to freeze their booties off at work!

Our best potty training tips! - M Loves M @marmar

I’m not going to lie…I was very nervous to potty train Augustine. We wanted to wait until after Corinna was born to help make the whole process less hectic, but she was still pretty young when we took the leap. While it was definitely a few taxing weeks, the whole process went so much better {and faster!} than I thought it would. Augustine adapted so quickly and we are so proud of him! To help make the process less intimidating for my mom readers, I wanted to share our best tips for potty training!
