Old Friends

sweater: madewell (similar here) // jeans: one teaspoon (available here)// jacket: old, similar here // bag: 3.1 phillip lim (similar here) // shoes: sam edelman (here) // sunnies: ray ban (available here) // necklaces: tiffany & co and stella & dot

Day 8 of the Who What Wear 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge was "wear an item you haven't worn in at least 6 months"…..which just so happened to be my Sam Eldelman Okala pumps. On this particular day I was super busy with 2 meetings and event (and obviously Doodle was with me)….so I needed to look put together yet still be able to chase around a crazy 2 year old. A leather jacket, boyfriend jeans and interesting (yet comfortable) shoes helped me pull the entire day off…..with a little help from some coffee and Kashi granola bars. 

Speaking of keeping busy….. This Sunday March 9th Belk and the Junior League of Raleigh are rolling out the red carpet for spring fashion with a private fashion show and shopping gala at Belk of Crabtree Valley Mall from 5:00-10:00 featuring a personal appearance by renowned fashion designer Trina Turk.
