Brandon told me the day before my birthday that my gift would be late and he felt very bad, but I am the most meh person when it comes to birthdays so I told him, “Don’t even feel bad! You know how meh I am about birthdays.” Anyway, the next morning he told me what he had gotten me so I’d have something to look forward to. 
AND IT ARRIVED TODAY 
It is Cuyana’s short leather tote and I feel good about having been recommending it blind to you guys for the past year or so because it is glorious. It is so well-made and appears to be very sturdy (I will report back after a month of use or so) and the monogramming is the icing on the cake. (It takes longer to receive the bag and it’s an extra $10, but it is the best $10 you will spend.) 
Here’s the thing I really love though: the color. It’s the richest shade of caramel. Caramel bags like this go with everything: They look good with denim and black (and I wear a lot of both). I love that the shape is so minimal and clean. No frills except the monogram. 
I am eyeing the tall leather tote ($150) next (when is the next gift giving occasion I can drop hints for—Mother’s Day, yes). If you have to take a laptop back and forth to work, the tall one might be a better choice. (Although I could easily fit my laptop in mine. It says “Short,” which may make you think it is small but it’s not.) 
Anyway, if you’ve been looking for a basic (NO BASIC BAGS ALLOWED) minimal leather tote that can work for commuting, weekend, diaper bagging, whatever—I am over the moon for this one already.

A great gift for coworkers, sisters-in-law or the generally difficult to buy for: Anthropologie’s $22 monogram bracelet. It’s affordable, cute and who doesn’t love a monogram?!

If you’ve started hunting for Christmas gifts (UGH), Nordstrom has these new Moon and Lola personalized monogram stud earrings for $48 each. So cute.

I just ordered Isobel this adorable little customizable lunchbox from Brickyard Buffalo (MONOGRAM!). So cute, right? They’ve got other kids things, like those BlaBla dolls everyone is obsessed with and button-on bow ties. It’s sort of a flash sale site for Etsy products, but they mix it up with indie products or boutique products too. For the adults, I like this infinity scarf and this watch

So, this is a diaper bag and that’s neat, but I won’t hold it against you if you don’t use it as one because it’s damn cute and combines so many loves into one little tote-able package.
P.S. Diaper bags make GREAT handbags. Lots of handy little compartments.
