Street Smart (See Jane Wear)

                                                               H&M sweater, UO striped top, J Brand jeans, Bakers shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses
I used to tell my family growing up that I was "street smart."  I honestly thought of myself that way and I'm guessing it was my wild imagination.  In reality, I was raised on the mean streets of rural Ohio.  My "street" growing up was actually a long, winding road until we moved to a cul-de-sac.  Now that I've lived in a big city for a few years, I can once again (truthfully) claim that I have street smarts.  Now, please know that this doesn't necessarily equate to having common sense--case in point: I left my coat in the car on this blustery day.

(Note that I'm wearing the Carrie bun thanks to B Jones Style again--I'm addicted!)

  16. it's funny, once you gain big city street smarts in one city, you can pretty much go to any city and walk around like yo know what you're doing

  22. I love that mural. Fine, I love your outfit too!! Especially the cropped sweater and the blogger bun you have going on. I don't think I have thick enough hair to pull off the bun the way it was intended. I tried it the other day and mine just looked a little sad. Woe is me.
