I hope you all had wonderful times ringing in the new year!  I don’t have a sparkly NYE outfit to show you because B and I opted out of parties and bars to have a chill evening at home with steak dinner and a movie.  I have no regrets.
Instead, here’s an outfit from the earlier in the weekend.  My husband gave this tote to me for Christmas.  I’m on the go a lot or traveling, so I often have quite a load to carry, but the previous totes I’ve used have been inexpensive and couldn’t cut it.  Since I broke a record in discovering new ways you could break a tote, B decided around my birthday last year that it was time to invest in a quality tote for me.  He had my friends pitch in for one as a birthday present, but when I found out how much it cost I couldn’t bare the thought the money could have been used on so many other things.  I made him return it.

But for the next few months I kept mentioning how my bags were breaking, and B regretted returning that tote ever since my birthday.  He insisted that I let him give me a good tote for Christmas, and here it is.  This is well made and the leather is buttery, and I believe it’ll last for a while.  As much as I kick and scream about it, sometimes you do just have to invest in quality.  I’m learning!
