Black and Gold and Red All Over

I had to run several errands yesterday. I have "pop-up" visits at one of the kids' school everyday and then I had to run to the bank, meet a friend for dinner and then go post some mail before doing the after-school routine.  I didn't feel like wearing jeans, but I wanted to be comfortable so I wore this.

Sunglasses: Ralph Lauren; Bracelet: Kenneth Cole
Earrings: White House | Black Market

Top: Rhapsody; Wayward Bra: On Gossamer via Gilt Groupe

This bag is from  I am always suspicious of all of monthly shoe clubs like ShoeDazzle, especially when you read the horrible reviews.  When HauteLook launched SoleSociety, it seemed like another shoe club.  My dislike of these shoe clubs is that they claim to design the shoes, but they seem to all be selling the same ones.  I was reluctant to try, but when they offered the IFB Conference attendees a $39.95 credit, I thought it would be worth it to give it a shot.  I don't buy shoes without trying them on and feeling the fabric and getting to know the designer enough to trust my sizing, but I found a great necklace and earring set (which I will show you later).
As they were having their 2/$39.95 birthday sale and I remembered that Morgan wanted a turquoise bag, I went ahead and ordered two bags.  I ordered a larger turquoise bag for her (which she will review later when I finally give it to her) and this one for me.  As you can see in the photo above, the stock photo looked very yellow.  The reality is that the bag I received was more of a golden or mustard color.
Red Bracelet: c/o BaubleBar BaubleVault; Clutch:
I really like the size, I thought it would be smaller, but it's large enough to fit all my daily items and it also has a chain that allows me to wear it like a crossbody bag if I want to.  The pockets and compartments make it easy to stay organized and even though the color is more mustard, I think it goes well with the red and gold with this outfit.  Not bad for $20.

Pants: Zara; Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti

Did I mention the running around? No way I would have made it in heels! I love my Giuseppe Zanotti flats and they are so comfy!

What do you wear when you are running errands but don't want to wear jeans?
