i tried to be wordless, i really did try. but the silence would just not come to me.
in fact, every time i see my new purse, i want to sing the hallelujah chorus.
the first time i laid eyes on this baby, i was walking through target. and was like whoa. look at you hot stuff. i kinda felt a little unfaithful toward my faithful old yellow purse.
the yellow purse i got 3 years ago for my birthday. as a present to myself, of course.
the yellow purse i bought at target for $22 and expected to last forever.
the yellow purse that was completely unraveling and falling apart at the seams. and still got compliments everywhere i went.
i was convinced i'd never find a purse that cute again.
until i saw the new purse. i admired her every time i walked through target. which is like two times a day, i kid you not. did you see they were hiring seasonal employees? i should really apply. i live there anyway. "follow me ma'am, to the party aisle".... i could totes pull off the red shirt and tan pants.
however, i never bought the new purse, because i'm kinda cheap like that. besides. i'm saving for a couch.
so you can imagine my glee when one of my dearies, alisha, surprised me with this purse for my birthday last month!
apparently, she could not stand watching me carry my dilapidated purse everywhere. she's kind of fancy like that. she's also my fashion advisor because she's so young and hip.
as soon as i got my new purse, i chucked my old yellow purse in the trash without even a 'how do you do". not even a picture of her. may she rest in peace.
i pretty much love how this new purse goes with everything in my wardrobe and house, lol.
dresser + purse is one of the first sights i wake up to every morning.
this purse almost hopped on my little sister during her christmas card photo shoot because it looked so cute with her outfit ensemble. did you know it's that time of year? christmas card picture time? for reasons beyond my comprehension i think it's so entertaining and interesting listening to people's wardrobe selections for picture time. fun stuff. tell me what you are wearing. now. haha.
ollie's flannel with mama's green sweater. our layering uniforms during this wishy washy weather.
i love this flannel-clad boy so much.
we've been listening to dumbo lately, fyi. am i being random today? i can't really tell. twain is crying loud so i can't think.
another little goodie is this clutch from Lorieloo. isn't it just darling?
made by the little green thread. it likes to hang out with my new purse above and can often be found snuggling inside her.
getting a new purse and clutch is kind of a big deal around here.
ok, time to get ready for awana and small group!
