What’s In My Closet

Not sure if I mentioned, but Dan and I closed on our house in September! We are undergoing major renovations and will move sometime in April BECAUSE I will be going to India in January for 3 months (for work). I know. Crazy, right? So between construction, the holidays and packing for India before stowing away all of my warm-weather wardrobe, I need to start packing up my belongs for the big move. First stop: my closet.

The first haul already made its way to goodwill, with a second haul awaiting its fate at the consignment shop. As I dug deep into my closet, I rediscovered a few items that I actually forgot I owned. Exhibit A: gray suede boots. I bought them a few years ago in Freiburg, Germany. I remember, they were on sale too. Exhibit B: Alexander McQueen scarf. Dan got this for me as a Christmas gift early on in our relationship which happen to coincide with my skull and crossbones phase. To make darn sure I wanted to keep these items, I test-drove them, along with my new utility top, on my brunch date with Laura and Mo. We chitted and we chatted over coffee (tea for Mo) and corned beef hash (x3) at Steel And Rye. Have you been? It’s a must; add it to your list! Oh, and the verdict on the scarf and boots? KEEPERS!

Outfit Details:

Dual Pearl Studs: Ily Couture, <$10. I bought this during a sale right before I left for Italy, so I can’t recall exactly how much it was. Currently, there is the dual pear studs in silver or hematite, $22.

Eiffel Tour Necklace: Blue Lemon Paris (bday gift last year from mon ami).

‘Skull’ Chiffon Scarf: Alexander McQueen.

Soft-Wash Denim Short-Sleeve Shirt: Banana Republic. I found this on major sale at $9.99. Currently on sale for $29.99 with an additional 40% off by using code BRSALE.

Chain Cuff: Bauble Bar, $32 (bday gift).

Leggings: Forever21, $3.90.

Messenger Crossbody: Furla (Flair in Barolo), c/o.

Suede Boots: Total find in the closet! If you are in the market for a pair, check out Sole Society’s tall boot, $139.95.
