Daily: Coin Purse

Some days I just feel like doing things out of the box. For instance, at my university, all the girls carry around a small pouch in which they put their cellphone, ID card, gum, maybe a little lipgloss. I was rummaging through some boxes in my dorm room yesterday and completely forgot I had this little coin purse with an actual strap on it, so I’ve decided to tote that around with me all day rather than my typical Vera Bradley pouch. Cute, right? Here’s the breakdown:

Top: Garage sale (Banana Republic)
Vest: Garage sale
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Payless
Bracelets: Garage sale/my grandma’s
Earrings: Garage sale/Peebles
Coin Purse: Garage sale

I’ve decided to really start pulling inspiration from magazines this week instead of my typical “What do I feel like wearing this morning” approach. It’ll be nice to have my outfits planned the night before. I was really good about doing that last year. Time to get back into the habit.

My vest is super warm, and I love the fur trim around it. It wasn’t warm enough to wear just this all day, so I slipped a leather jacket on while going from class to class. I thought the fushia was a nice pop of color, considering I was going to go with all black. I think I made the right choice.
