30 for 30: Shabbos Edition - Outfit 20







Occasion:

 2/3 finished with the 30 for 30 challenge!! Yay! I must admit, it is getting much harder not only thinking of new combinations for the 30 pieces, but also because the weather has been a bit nicer and I am ready to dump these winter duds for some springy pieces:)

This past Shabbos D and I had my chevrusa (learning partner) from school, R, come to stay with us. We had a blast:) We hosted both meals at our apartment with our good friends C & E, and new friends S & C for dinner and R & R and their adorable (k"h) son, A for lunch. I absolutely love R and was so thrilled for her to come meet D (since I talk about him all the time to her at school) and my Teaneck friends. We learn all day together at school, puzzling over difficult Hebrew and Aramaic texts, and we have developed a very close friendship. D was also excited to meet R since I talk about her so much to him. It was great to spend time with her outside of our typical school setting. I can only hope that she enjoyed her Shabbos in Teaneck as much as we enjoyed having her and we hope that she will come back soon!

Keppie LOVED R and I think the feeling was mutual:) After we took R home on Saturday night, D and I were cleaning up and a raisin from a shabbos dish fell on the floor so I called Keppie over to eat it and I told her a raisin was on the floor. As soon as I said "raisin" she jumped up from laying on the couch. I don't think she actually knows what a raisin is, so I can only assume she thought I said R's name (yes, her name sounds a bit like raisin!) Keppie was dissappointed when she figured out all I had for her was a shriveled unappetizing morsel on the floor...but then she got over it and ate the raisin.

I wore a similar version of this outfit earlier in the week to a synagogue Sisterhood event, but I didn't get to take pictures, so I rewore it:) I paired this simple black turtleneck with my camel colored corduroy skirt and dressed it up with some neutral accessories. I wore 2 multi-colored necklaces, my brown braided leather belt and my black fringy moccasins.

I am so excited to have found your blog...I JUST discovered the concept of capsule wardrobes. I've been dressing modestly for a while, but relying on t-shirts and shells...which is convenient for a stay at home mom...but...I've decided I needed to jazz things up and my closet has a few things that deserve to be worn. THanks for sharing your journey!
