i didn't mean to, but i fell in love

I was in Burlington VT yesterday and my Mom and I bought Tess the most darn adorable clothes I have ever seen! (by my Mom and I, I mean I was there, she was buying!
gotta LOVE grandmas!)
Baby Gap was having this amazing 50% outerwear sale (Tess didn't have anything warm enough for our arctic weather yet). I also finally found the most perfect buttery soft worn in jean overalls for her (lined in soft soft grey cotton), in the boys section.

Yes, I know, she's a girl, you might be saying, stop with the jeans and tees,
But I can't ok? I just can't!
I am a jeans freak myself and I am not about to dress my baby girl in frou frou party dresses when her favorite activities are drooling, rolling around on the floor and rubbing just about everything on her gums (which comes full circle, back to the drooling)...oh, and did I mention that she LOVES intercepting the spoon full of green mushy organic peas as it is about to hit her lips so that she can then crinkle up her little nose and laugh while she spreads the green mush all over the place? yep, she LOVES doing that!

So, here are a few more of the fabulous purchases that
grandma made for her absolutely perfect grand daughter;

an adorable green empire waist tee
a chic cordoroy button up the back top.

Over at Old Navy we found these 2 adorable thermal button front onesies!
I would have happily snapped pics of Tess in all her new things,
but she is busy doing this right now:

But Wait! The baby clothes are great,
however this post is about falling in love.
I walked into
Sweet Lady Jane on Church Street,
(a store I have loved for many years)
and as I am still not doing much me shopping,
because I am still feeling pretty blimpy with big ole' nursing boobs
(that was probably TMI, sorry), accessories are key at the moment...
Well let me tell you, even skinny, I would have fallen in love with
this wonderfully gorgeous OMG!!!
(I am calling it an OMG because bag, in this situation will just NOT cut it!)

(especially in the dark brown!, though all the colors are fabulous!)

it is unbelieveable!
the most buttery soft leather you have ever touched (with amazing detailing and worn-in goodness) and there is a shoulder strap you can hook on for a more messenger style
(yeah, messenger? who am I kidding? ...)
It is actually the most sophisticated "comfort piece" I have ever seen!
Anyhow, I just can't get it out of my mind and it is just not in the budget and that totally sucks and so I will simply covet right now while I share my anguish and heartache over it with you!
(the photo does not even do it justice!...and it might even make me look kind of skinny because it's huge and so beautiful that you focus on the bag and not my chubbiness!)
(had never heard of the company before
Monserat de Lucca, apparently Anthropologie carries some of their pieces too).
