Monograms are a huge weakness for me. It really doesn’t matter what the item is, if it’s monogrammed, I want it! However, since getting married a few years ago I’m always a little lost on which letters I should use. Middle name? Maiden name? Or just AJ? I’ve actually done it all three ways which is probably super confusing, but I like to have options. With this bag I went with my middle name, which is Constance (my mom’s name) if you’re curious.

This bag is hand painted and I got to customize it with Leatherology – I went back and forth for days before I decided on this color combo. I’m usually overly decisive but some things (like a handbag) are worth the over analyzing.

Let’s also talk about this dress. It’s been really hot here lately so I threw it on over the weekend to run errands. Jeff commented that I was probably the only person who goes grocery shopping in a LBD, his words, but it’s really comfortable! It’s cotton and I found it in the back of my closet at the end of my pregnancy. Literally the last week. I loved tight dresses that showcased the bump and was really surprised when I tried it on last month and it was still flattering. It’s a few years old but

I’m linking some really similar options that I think would be just as versatile/flattering!
