Small Town Charm (See Jane Wear)

J Crew sweater + skirt (worn here), Gap button-up + tights, Bakers shoes, sister's scarf
Ignore that the first photo is out of focus and that the face I'm making is...embarrassing and just take in the image I'm trying to convey--a cold day in a charming, midwestern town (Perrysburg, OH).  So many things were happening on this Thursday before Christmas:

- a visit to the yarn shop (my mom is knitting me a throw)
- babysitting my nephew, William
- lunch with my parents and sister
- quick trip to the mall with my dad to buy presents for my grandpa
- and finally, an impromptu picture taking session (observe)

I love this skirt and these shoes.  At first I thought they wouldn't necessarily pair together, but ultimately threw caution to the wind and did it anyway.  Turns out, I like it.







And my wonderful sister + photographer, Emily..

  2. I absolutely love how you paired this outfit. It's giving me inspiration for a skirt I have that's similar to that one.

  8. Is there anything better than a great pair of brogues? I think not. I love them paired with the darker tights. It makes it a little bolder and quirkier.
