my new purse baby

jacket: Gap Outlet // dress & necklace: Target // sandals: Steve Madden // purse: J.Crew Factory gift 
In true knowing-me-better-than-I-know-myself fashion, Dago surprised me with this beautiful J.Crew clutch that I didn't even know I needed. I've been a crossbody bag 4 lyfe kind of girl, but every time I have an event or something a little fancier to go to, I struggle to find the right bag to carry my essentials. Since we were both really strapped for cash on our anniversary, we decided to surprise each other with gifts throughout the rest of the year when we had more slack in our bank accounts. Dago eyes J.Crew Factory as often as I do and bought this baby during their recent flash sale. He's a keeper.

PS. I didn't dye my hair. For some reason brick walls do weird things to my hair/complexion in photos. Womp womp.

PPS. If you're in Austin today and support women's access to healthcare in Texas, please consider testifying this evening at the Capitol to prevent SB5 from being passed by the House. Find more information here. I hope to see you there!


  1. I used to have a couple of clutches for fancier occasions (one was definitely left over from my prom) and I must have lost them in a move or given them away or something, because I definitely no longer have them. It's not something you ever want to spend money on because you don't need them that often but when you do, it's embarrassing to have the wrong bag. Such a nice purse, and it looks so versatile! Jealous!

  2. gorgeous. its perfect.
    what a man. he's a keeper.


  3. You go Dago!! What a great gesture. I like that you guys just left this open-ended gift idea out there. I think "love you" reminders throughout the year are way better than anniversary gifts/dinners... especially when they come in the form of a JCrew factory anything.

  4. Way to go, Dago! I instantly smiled when I read that about him because it sounds like something my boyfriend has done too. Yay for us for finding such keepers and for them being so awesome!
