Two weeks ago, I blogged about how bugs are in right now as spring accessories (here). I particularly love these beetle brooches from Banana Republic. They were my inspiration for the “What’s In” post. I like that you could use them dressed down in denim or dressed up in an evening gown. I do not like real bugs but I love them as adornments.  I love the placement of the bugs on my knit vest. They are crawling on me in opposite direction and a little angled.  Bugs do not crawl in a straight line.  When I had the bug on my left pined to my jeans, my son Jordan thought it was real. He tried to brush it off and was a bit startled when he realized the bug would not come off. LOL! The baby was jumping and pointing while yelling “Bug, bug, mommy, bug.”

As long as it is not a cockroach, I can handle it. I have seen enough flying roaches in boarding school to keep me fearful of them for life. Eeeeww!
