{recap} French Wardrobe Challenge - October



  Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
This month started off with some free clothes thanks to my Mom taking me birthday shopping! For the rest of the month I tried to resist buying clothes but, as we all know, I'm a shopaholic so I did a bit more shopping. I bought a purple leopard sweater, how could I resist two of my favorite things?! 

I also splurged on a Lo & Sons bag after seeing one featured on Jessica's blog. I have a few vacations planned for next year and it will definitely come in handy for those as well as weekend trips! I've already used it a couple times since buying it, so handy!



THE RULES
  1. Just five seven standout pieces per season.
  2. Quality over quantity.
  3. Basics don’t count.
  4. Accessories don’t count, unless you’re spending a lot more than usual.
  5. Socks and underwear don’t count.
  6. Shoes do count.

  4. I could live off of my cozy navy sweater, jeans, and black ankle boots right now. I've had my eye on a classic bag like yours though!

    Sincerely,
