{recap} French Wardrobe Challenge - October

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!

  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.

  3. I love the bag! It looks super roomy.

  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!


  5. I love the ankle boots, Vince Camuto is probably my favorite shoe brand!
