Off the Shoulder Top & Grey Skinny Jeans

I love this top and these jeans so much, I wore this exact outfit two times in three weeks. The first time I wore this outfit was to dinner with my alumnae advisor council. I volunteer as an advisor for the Delta Rho chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi at DePaul University here in Chicago.

This is the street I grew up on in Quincy, Illinois. Something seemed right about shooting my new outfit posts in the place where it all began.

Classic Duffle

I admit it: I love the smell of new leather. Just like some people crave new car smell, I crave new leather smell. It just smells so clean and full of possibility! I got the sense of new possibilities when I unwrapped this lovely birthday present to myself back in August: the large Coach duffle from the revamped Legacy collection. I choose this camel color as the perfect neutral addition to my ever-expanding handbag collection. The long strap gives great conversion to a cross body position and the tassel is just adorable. The cream sweater and suede boots were easy and comfortable with the bag. Threw on a tri-colored necklace and I was ready for my day. Enjoy all!
