Something Borrowed (See Jane Use)


I headed back to the homeland to see my parents and sisters this past weekend.  The best parts about going home (rather than the obvious company of loved ones) include:  the abundance of food in the fridge, suburban malls, roads without traffic, and raiding my sister's closet.  We are similar in size and build and I don't think we've ever been together without swapping something in our closets.  In fact, I usually don't put a whole lot of thought into packing when I visit home, as I know I'll always find something to wear.


sister's H&M coat, sister's UO jeggings, sister' Luella for Target button down, H&M tank, Zara boots

(...And clearly see above some flour got on my pants.  I also love baking at home because my mom has a stocked pantry.  I will show the the fruits of my labor later on this week.)

Also, thank you for the suggestions on how to wear the Zara boots!

You look so cute! Visits home are the best, no? You're lucky that you and your sister can swap clothes; I'm still trying to get mine out of college sweatshirts. And love how you wore the boots -- adorable!

I always wished for a sister for that very reason. Lucky you!! You got some serious scores on your wardrobe adventure in her closet. I love the way you put it all together with the boots. Those things are swooners!

cute cute cute.

I'm going to assume your motherland is not Florida, like mine is, because then you would be bemoaning the existence of suburban malls rather than enjoying them. :)
