What I've Been Wearing


There is a young teenager at our church that has these shoes. I'd noticed them a couple times before but hadn't had the chance to tell her we were "twins". Then, after service this past weekend, her Mom came up and told me she was excited that she had the same shoes as "the cool lady". It left me feeling flattered and, for some reason, old at the same time - maybe because now I'm a "lady" and moms talk to me but teenagers don't. 

jacket + belt + shirt: thrift, pants: anthropologie, shoes: restricted via dsw

Black, white, green is quickly becoming one of my favorite color combinations.

I wore this outfit to galavant around Chicago and was pleasantly surprised with how well the skirt held up. Not only did it stay wrinkle fee all day but after taking a little pit stop at a beach the sand brushed right off.

Both the dress and shoes in this outfit are old - over five years old. The dress is one my favorites but I don't wear it much anymore because it's starting to show a little wear - I hope to keep it for a bit longer. The shoes are ones I got when I found out Big Buddy was going to be a boy. Together they made a perfect date outfit.

  5. I love the red dress, too! All your outfits looked great - i can definitely see why you're the "cool lady". And really, to teenagers, any one over the age of 20 is considered old!!
