New bag

Friday, I went on (another) road trip to a different college town. Let me tell you, the town was so adorable! I felt like I was cheating on my own college by how much I loved this other college's town. Too cute.

Well, while I was there I of course had to go shopping! They had so many adorable shops, one of them was a small boutique that had a variety of beautiful things. There were adorable sun dresses, tunics, frye boots, among other things.

I ended up falling in love with this nautical bag, although I love my Vineyard Vines tote bag, this one was just cute! Well I looked at the price tag... $38... not expensive, but not the cheapest either. So I decided I'd continue to shop and if I didn't like anything else, I'd come back for the bag.

Later that day, after a day of shopping, I still didn't find something that I loved as much as that tote bag. I decided to go back and buy the bag before I left to head back to my college.  Well I did and here it is:
The bag is soooo cute in person! It's a navy blue and white striped canvas tote, with rope handles.  It has an enormous amount of room  and the quality of the fabric is fantastic! Even more, the tote's nautical theme is wonderful for the upcoming spring season!

Now the bad part, and my tip for you! Always be aware that there may be a greater deal on a purchase somewhere else. I was looking online for the bag (you can find it here) and ended up finding it half off! Oh well, at least I can find comfort in the new Sperry shoes I purchased Friday as well (with a gift card). I'm looking forward to wearing them, they look perfect with the new tote bag!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
