tan & black surprises

{pants: J. Crew chambray top: J. Crew sweater: J. Crew (similar style here) clutch: Love, Cortnie shoes: Zara (similar style here) necklace: Forever 21 watch: Michael Kors (similar style here}

Tan and black surprises, you ask.  Let me explain, this J. Crew sweater flew off the shelves not only in store but online, as well, I missed the boat on them.  They were gone.  Christmas arrives and surprise! there it was a lovely gift from my Mother who tracked it down for me.  Next, these Zara heels, I had been eyeing them for some time, but (for some reason) never purchased, then they went on sale and of course sold out of my size (that's what I get!) I called around and voila! I had tracked them down, the store would not hold them for me (they had one size left) because they were on sale.  So I took the drive and finally made the purchase!  Next time, I won't hesitate, lesson learned!
