When I went to the Vera Bradley store to buy my Go Round Tote I picked up a few other things and qualified to get the free gift with purchase. I love the Ditty Bag and decided that I wanted to pick up an additional one. I picked Island Blooms, but they were out of them, so they offered to have one mailed to me and it arrived at the end of last week. I just cant get over how much I really love this print! I think that the bright colors really make the print pop and it just makes me happy :)

Veronica from Huston, TX sent me a photo of this really cute pillow that her aunt made for her for Christmas out of Happy Snails material. I love the big yellow flower in the heart.
Thanks for sharing Veronica! If anyone has something they would like to share, you can email me at email@example.com.

I decided to get a Go Round Tote in Island Blooms since it was on sale over the weekend. This is my first Go Round Tote and I am excited about it. I think that it will be great for going to work since I normally have extra stuff with me. All the pockets will help me keep everything organized too.
In San Diego I didnt have to worry about season (mainly because we dont have them, haha) but here in DC this bag might be a bit too summery for winter. It looks a little out of place in the snow. I guess I will have to wait a few more months.

As I mentioned yesterday I made it to the Vera Bradley store last week to go check out the new colors for Spring 2012. I picked up a few things while I was there too!
I picked up a Go Round Tote in Island Blooms, Petite Photo Duo on Rosy Posies and Thank You Cards in Ellie Blue.
I love my new tote! I had never really looked at the Go Round Tote before, but since it was on sale I decided that it was worth checking out. I love the pockets on the inside and outside, plus it zips shut so I can put important stuff inside and keep it safe when I take the metro to work.
I loved these thank you cards. They say, "little card, big thanks."
This is the Petite Photo Duo. I am not a huge fan of Rosy Posies, but I like this cute frame. I am going to put a couple photos from my trip to see my sister in it and take it to work.
The photo frame folds in half.
I spend enough to get the gift with purchase. I choose a Ditty Bag in Island Blooms, but they were out of them, so they had to order it. It should arrive in a few days :)

I made it to the Vera Bradley store on Friday after work. I was excited to go see the new styles since I had seen the colors back when they previewed them in August.
This is a photo of the outside of the store...very welcoming like heading to a friends house!

A friend posted a link to ebay for a pair of Jack Rogers Vera Bradley Peacock Sandals and I bid and won! I couldn't be more excited! They are brand new!
People in California (well my friends, I guess I shouldn't generalize) don't wear Jack Rogers sandals. I didnt even know what they were until I moved to DC and saw girls wearing them throughout the spring and summer. I think that they are so cute and can be casual or dressed up a little. I had tried them on at Nordstrom but wasn't ready to pay full price for them. I looked on ebay over the summer a few times, but had pretty much forgot about them since I havent been able to wear sandals for months. Good thing I waited because now I have the best of both worlds!
An Island Blooms bag will go great with my new sandals!!! I can't wait for summer!
