Things I'm learning from looking at these photos: I like the cowboy boots more than I thought. They're probably 3 years old now, but look brand new. I LOVE leggings, they're so comfy. This sweater was a find, when I was shopping with my mom she picked it off an Ann Taylor sale rack for $14.99 (killer! I wish I had a pic of sleeves to show), and then a wool jacket from Banana Republic that is also probably 3 years old.
Before I met them for lunch, I was shopping in Anthropologie (the sale rack, with my 15% birthday month discount in hand*), and Jen, an employee, told me how much she loved my outfit. Funny thing is, the main pieces of this outfit are at least a few seasons (years) old! But she thought it looked fresh and new! Love that!
To ALL those of you who made my 23rd a great one, both friends and family, thank you, it means the world. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I feel so loved.
What I did learn about this outfit: it looks slightly European I think, and maybe a little less bulkiness on top, and my hair looks like a mop - - gotta tone it down! But its not like this is a hair blog. Maybe it should be. And also, don't look at my face, I didn't know what to do. Thanks for the previous comments and advice! I need it!
*get an Anthro card, they send you deals! and if for any reason you need to return anything, you don't need your receipt if you have one...very handy. and - if its your birthday, they send you a fancy card in the mail with a 15% off an entire purchase - yes please!
