downtown denim on denim

skirt: stitchfix  //  denim jacket: way old - SJP Bitten // sunglasses & chambray:
necklace c/o nspottery //  bag c/o conversation pieces // watch: fossil

Outfit inspired by this pin and this challenge by Jen of Arizona Russums.  It's called the Closet Challenge (read more about it here).  I've been doing lots of cleaning and have a HUGE bag for consignment and good will.  A lot of the stuff I love, but I never wear it, so its time to let someone else love it.   

One thing I realized I wasn't wearing much was my old trusty "jj."  Since denim is a safe "in" thing I figured there must be several ways I could wear this thing instead of leaving it in the back of my closet. I pulled out my handy dandy pinterest (too bad that doesn't rhyme) and got inspired!

Thrown on top of some current faves (chambray, maxi from stitch fix, and my NS Pottery necklace), I was ready for an impromptu Saturday family outing to downtown Franklin in my forgotten JJ.  It was the perfect day for a stroll and window shopping.  We sipped (way to sweet) starbucks lattes and let M wander around the toy store and pick a stocking stuffer.  My heart could live for days off of afternoons like this.

{Notice the ever-so-handsome David sporting a Live fashionABLE scarf -- yes, boys rock 'em too.  great gift ideas for everyone on your list. and if you wait till cyber monday you can get free shipping!!}

I mentioned my necklace from NS Pottery -- man i love this Girl (natalie), her blog, and her shop!!  I met het at Influence and my goodness does she have a sweet heart and some talented & creative hands.  She throws pottery -- beautiful mugs, baking wear, and more, plus she also makes really awesome ceramic jewelry too!

Please check her out.  You will love her - promise!  Annnnd... she is having a black friday sale (see code below).  Get stocked up on goodies for you and your mom and your best friend and your babysitter and your... you get the idea!
