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!

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.
