just a small town girl

I found this jumper at a thrift shop years ago. I still love wearing it year round, whether it's layered on top of blousy tops or by itself in the summer. I am convinced it must have belonged to a librarian, either that or came part of a school girl uniform. I'm going to go with the later, just because I was once forced to wear stuff like this in my youth. Take that Catholic school girl upbringing--look whose wearing fur and five inch heels now?

I must have channeled my inner Britney Spears- circa "Hit Me Baby One More Time", since I busted out the knee highs and oxfords on this irregularly sunny winter day. And don't even get me started on the Dutch girl braid crown in my hair. What can I say; I think I have a complex.

{cat blouse: purchased in Paris, jumper: thrift shop, jacket: GAP, knee highs: F21, oxfords: Steve Madden}

  7. I love this look! You look so free-spirited, and kind of equestrian. It seriously looks like you're one of those very well-off individuals that do competitive horseback riding as a hobby.

  12. The dutch girl braid crown rocks! Those purple buttons on that navy vintage jumper make it add the 'extra' in extraordinary with the knee-highs too!? *kiss* mad perfection.
