blazer: vintage (loving this one) // jeans: current/elliott (available here) // shoes: valentino (available here)// scarf: madewell (similar here)

It feels like I was just typing this same post from last year…..tomorrow I'm heading to my annual outlet Christmas shopping trip for the 10th or 11th year. It also happens that on this very day 3 years ago I found out I was preggars with my sweet Doodle man. The shopping trip means so much more now because of that discovery.

 Last year I racked up with 3 pairs of sunnies and a pair of leather opera length gloves…..this year the only thing on my list is another pair of wayfarers. As you can tell it finally got cold here in NC and I'm lurving it. I just picked this vintage blazer up from the tailor (it cost more to have it altered than the actual piece itself but totally worth it) and I couldn't wait to wear it.  Anywhos, if you would like to keep up with my shopping trip shenanigans (btw this is the first year my husband is actually coming with us from the past 4 times I've gone while we have been together) then be sure to follow along on instagram…… @doodlesmom812
