Whats Behind That Smile?

I'm looking particularly happy here.
Why I am smiling so? Because after waiting for nearly two months, my Alexa bag from Mulberry arrived. Along with my mom, of course.
I've used this bag pretty much every day this week - one of the reasons I wanted it so badly is because of it's versatility. The long straps mean the bag can be worn several different ways - across like a messenger, looped around short like a shoulder bag, or tucked in for a school bag look. The brown leather is soft for comfort yet sturdy enough to hold heaps of things. This is going to be my It-bag for all those plane and train rides in Europe.
All good reasons to smile. And of course, some TLC and pampering from Mom too goes a long way. =D

So tell me, what's your go-to, It bag? Or better yet, what's making you smile today?

I love everything about this post!
Then that bag.... I'd be wearing it with everything possible as well.

And my penguin print sleep shorts never fail to make me smile =P
