Road Trip Red-dy

I am traveling to see my brother and then my family today.  I needed something that was comfortable to drive in for long periods of time, but didn't single me out as a broke (and tired) college student during my trip.

I am Wearing:

Camisole: Nordstrom Rack
Sweater: Gap
Jeans: Vince
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Earrings: Macy’s (gift from cousin)
Wallet: Proenza Schouler

I used to love these Vince jeans.  When I purchased them, they were the best skinny jeans I'd ever purchased.  I think they've since stretched out because although they are now super comfortable, they are nowhere near the great skinnies that they used to be.  If the leg wasn't tapered, they'd be the perfect boyfriend jeans.  I don't know if I should get them tailored or let them go.
The earrings are very old.  A cousin of mine bought me this pair  of sterling silver and czs maybe 5 or 6 years ago. I wore them all the time until I tragically lost one of them about a year and a half later.  I didn't want to admit that I'd lost one, but I was desperate to replace them because I loved the lever back and the dangling cz.  I liked that they weren't trying to pass for the real deal as most cz studs try to do.  When I couldn't find them, I finally called her and asked her where she bought them so that I could replace them.  She just laughed and directed me to Macy's and since it was the holiday season, I was able to find a replacement pair right away.  Wouldn't you know that I lost one about six months ago? I remembered that I never got rid of the original, so now I have a set comprised of one that was gifted and one that was replaced.  I've had a real version of these (with real diamonds) on my wishlist for years, but I will apparently have to save up and get them myself if I ever want to actually own them! These will have to do for now.
I've worn these Giuseppe Zanotti flats before, but I think they are great for driving and walking and sitting and...I think they are great for everything!  I originally bought them because of the big croc buckle, but I've kept them for so long because they are so comfortable!  It doesn't hurt that the color is so versatile in my closet as black and red dominate a great deal of it.

Happy Wednesday!
