typography and midnight blue...

ok, so i have to start off by talking about my favorite piece in this outfit- the crossbody bag!
i have been dying over this marc jacobs bag for so long.
so when i saw the one in my pictures on sale at h&m for less than $10- i could not resist!
it looks so much like the marc jacobs bag that i have been drooling over.
so naturally, i like to pretend that my h&m bag is actually marc jacobs.
but really- when i was at h&m last weekend they had so many cute, cute bags that were on sale.
seriously, go there. 
and this blouse i also got from h&m for $6! 
and these pants were from rue21 for less than $10 also.
and these steve madden shoes that i've worn in a couple of posts already i got at a garage sale for less than $5.
so this entire outfit was less than $30!
bargain shopping is the absolute best... 

top: h&m
pants: rue21

bag: h&m

and just a side story-
and looong story short....
we took our little dog with us while we took these pictures.
we left him in the car with it running and he stepped on the lock button and locked us out!
our cell phones were in the car and it was a sunday so businesses weren't open to let us use their phones!
we also don't have a spare key to this particular car.
oh and it was below freezing out and we weren't dressed appropriately. 
luckily, we found a hispanic mini mart that was open and they actually came to the rescue and drove to our car and helped us open one of the doors without having to call a locksmith. 
it was a crazy adventure!
we were so beyond grateful that they were willing to take their time to come out in the cold and help us.
being kind goes soo far...

so these pictures were taken after all of that happened and i was just about frozen.
a lot of the pictures were actually blurry because i couldn't stop shaking! 
so yeah- don't ever leave your dog in the car while it's running without your phones or a spare key! 

have a good week- it's almost christmas!
