I should not be trusted at The Grove alone. I went there for a specific item at Sur La Table and ended up with a new Anthropologie dress and J Crew bag. I actually prefer shopping on my own because no one is there to tell me no…I know, that’s a bad sign.

Anthropologie dress:

Please don’t judge me/the dress on my embarrassing self pic, but I couldn’t tell if I loved it just from the mirror and had to take a pic and send it to a girlfriend to approve. I think I’m going to shorten it a few inches and possibly put thin straps at the top. I have absolutely no occasion to wear it yet, but I know it will be a great addition to the closet.

J. Crew bag:

This picture doesn’t even do her justice (yes I am referring to my bag as a her). I went in looking for this purse that I saw on Elise’s blog and on Cardigan Junkie, but I was swayed to this hobo. I love that there are hand straps and a larger strap so you can throw it over your shoulder/across your front like a messenger when you don’t want to hold on to it. I’m the type of girl that carries one purse for 6 months with every outfit, ¬†through every type of weather and on every trip. So I know I am going to get a lot of use out of this baby.

Happy Monday!
