Some of the components that make up this outfit come from some very special times in my life.
I bought it at a Banana Republic in 2006 in Charleston, the day after running my very first half marathon on Kiawah Island.
I bought them on my very first trip to New York in 2008. Brad took me. I looked for boots I look far and wide and finally settled on these about an hour before boarding the bus back to Boston (where Brad was working at the time).
I think they do a nice job at dressing down an otherwise too-dressy-for-work skirt.
The rest of the outfit is less sentimental.
But isn’t it funny the things that you remember?
I’ll be cheering on the UNC-Chapel Hill men’s basketball team tonight as we face our biggest opponent: Dook. Even though this is a style post, I couldn’t help but mention it here. I’ll add that I’m not wearing the above outfit, but am instead donning a Carolina blue sweater, on my way out the door to join some very loyal alumni…probably about 300 of us.
It’s going to be rowdy good time.
If we win.
Which we will.
