Weekend Rewind. What's in my Bag?

It's that time again... for another edition of Weekend Rewind. I was lucky enough
to travel to the Gulf Coast of Destin, FL this past weekend with the parentals and
my friend Alison and her 2 year old Gabe. We had SO MUCH FUN!! Were not ready to come back to Alabama last night! :(

So, on the way down Thursday afternoon we stopped by Durbin Farms in Clanton to pick up
some fresh produce and I ran across some really cute clothes on clearance in their little
boutique shop. This romper was marked down and I love the print. I feel like you could even
wear it into the fall with tights, boots, and a cute jacket.

Up close view. The ruffles on top are so cute!

Sporting the Romper in Baytown Wharf with Al.

While in Baytown we popped in this cute boutique shop called Coco's. They mostly
had jewelry, handbags, and a few accessories. I grabbed this headband. Lovin it.

If you like oysters and are in Destin do yourself a favor and go to Acme Oyster House
in Baytown Wharf. I don't do raw oysters.... YUCK... can't get over the texture and slim, but
these are chargrilled and have a parmesan topping. This is the third time I have had these
oysters and I think they just get better and better! So yummy.

Posing with my oyster! :) And my romper!

On the beach!! It was such a gorgeous weekend. Perfect weather, water, food, and company!
Sportin my fedora hat that I got in Daytona last month.

So, while I was in the boutique shop, Coco's, I ran across this bag. It's by Tano... you may
have heard of them before. They are mostly sold at boutique shops. It's an Italian leather
bag that is kind of known for the glaze they put on the purses. I debated on getting this purse.
Even went back the following day to look at it one more time. I LOVE the charcoal gray color.
LOVE the edgy look and the hardware on the strap, but wasn't sold on the size. Tano
bags are larger bags. Very deep. Just felt like it looked a little too big on me. I'm still not
convinced that I won't end up ordering it online. I have been wanting a gray bag for over a
year now.


Have a great week!


  1. How about a link for that purse because I totally want it! I only use one strap purses because I find myself getting annoyed when one strap falls off. Also, I have to be able to put the purse on my shoulder without any elbow maneuvering. This looks like it would meet all my demands! :) Although I kind of want it in white...

  2. Um, I agree. Gonna need a link to this bag.


    It's sold out on this website and I can't seem to find it anywhere else!

  4. I think the bag is super cute! And as a momma of 1 (and a 1/2), I love larger bags. BUT! The big kicker is, what's the inside like? Does it have any pockets or dividers to help me stay organized inside the suitcase I like to call a purse? If yes, then I'm sold. If I'm going to spend tons of time hunting my keys or fruit snacks for the little babe, then I'm out!

  5. I love it. I want it. I am like Rebecca-- tell us about the inside!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
