Day 25 of 30: Last Day of Vacation

Dress: self-made; Scarf: Boston Store; Purse: Michael Kors via TJ Maxx; Sunglasses:; Bracelets: Mexicali Blues

Boo, I don't want to go back to work on Monday and then to the dentist. Why can't vacation last forevsies?

Recently, I decided that I need a new purse. All mine have been falling apart one by one, so I wanted a quality, real leather purse that will hopefully last me years and years and years. On the hiking expedition yesterday, I kept upping the amount I was willing to pay for said new purse, and it got up to $1,000. Haha. I didn't actually spend that much, but I did pick up this snazzy Michael Kors bag for $180. Yeah, pricey, but it was half off the original price. Isn't it puuurdy? I dig it.

Besides shopping, hubs and I took a little joy ride in his family's '77 MG Midget (teeny tiny car pictured behind me below). They recently replaced the transmission, so I didn't mind the shifting part, but the lack of power steering and power brakes definitely took some adjusting to on my part.

And tomorrow, very early, we begin our trek back home.


  1. I love that bag! The style and shape is so classic but the cobalt blue is modern! And I think you paid a really good price for it. Quality construction and material pay for itself.
