The last bit of shopping for a while

DH and I are looking into mortgages and a big fat down-payment. As such, this is my last shopping trip for a long time. (Except for dresses for weddings. Because I need those, duh.)

Hit up the J.Crew outlet and found all the headbands on crazy sale. I got most of these for $4 a piece and one for a dollar! I thought the madras one was my favorite but now it's the wide black and white cameo print. I wore it with a soft pink sweater, black pencil skirt, and pearls. Adorable!

I also love love love the jade green linen cable-knit cardigan. The perfect weight for the office and then out for drinks with the office folks. DH also gave me permission to buy a new (bigger) beach bag. Now that we have the 7' Whim beach towels (pictured below) we needed a bigger bag to accommodate their bulk. Took this madras bag to Mission Beach on Sunday while DH was surfing and it held: 2 Whim towels, 2 bottles of sunscreen, DH's large sandles, a Nalgene, a novel, 2 magazines, and our waterproof "pouch" that holds keys, wallets, phones, etc. All in all, I LOVE this bag.

*whispers* But is it wrong to still want the LL Bean lobster tote?

I have that J.Crew madras tote and it's awesome! It's also really humungous, so I don't think the LLBean lobster tote is an unreasonable want. Different size = different purpose!

Love, love love the headbands! And the tote is totally fabulous! And as for the lobster tote....that just might fall into the "need" category.
