Yes, I know this outfit isn’t original – I’ve worn it before with different heels.  But sometimes, you don’t have time to think about what to wear.  And that’s when I repeat!  It was a last minute decision to go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day so I was rushing.
But the jacket IS new.  It was a somewhat impulsive and now-very-well-worn purchase from New York when shopping with these ladies {Ashley, Bethany, and Dominique}.  We were at the cutest boutique, WiNK, in Soho and this fabulous jacket was on sale.  You can unzip the bottom faux fur portion off so it’s technically TWO jackets in one!  And you know how I feel about multi-way pieces!
*Enzo heels were found on clearance at Marshalls.

P.S.  Lots of fun things happening on the home and adoption front!  I’ll catch y’all up soon!
