Retro Urban Cowgirl?

Denim Shirt: Sarah Jessica Parker for Steve & Barry’s 
Daisy Blouse: Goodwill
Skirt: Proenza Schouler for Target
Boots: Anthropologie
The denim shirt! How trendy of me. Actually, I think I got this shirt in 2007 and at that time I had no idea how to wear it. Typically I would throw it over a sundress and call it a success. Then I moved onto buttoned with black skinny pants and a scarf. That was a big deal. Now I'm allowed to wear it with whatever I want- even more denim! Whaaa? That's crazy talk. (still havent ventured there... not really sure if those magazines are just trying to trick me into looking like JLo) 
I have loved this skirt for a while too. Sadly, I think it needs to be retired. Its lining has almost completely disconnected from the rest of it, forcing me to reach up there after approximately every 50 feet, trying to be subtle but maybe screaming 'Dont look at me!' to a swarm of students might not be the best approach... Sigh! But I love it. 
Notice how two of my clothing items are from special designer lines. I used to get really excited about them- especially the Proenza Schouler. Now it seems like you could pick 1/10 people from imdb or 7/10 people from mtv and they'd have one. Give me DVF at Forever 21 and maybe I'll start paying attention again. (and by maybe I mean 'HOLYCANOLE where is my purse')
Also, for anyone that actually  knows my life and notices the post dates seem a litte off- it's because I recently switched my blog from tumblr to blogspot. So these were my posts from there. Tumblr looked great but quickly became limiting so I'm really happy I made the switch over to here. Improvements will keep happening. Yay for blogging! And not doing homework.

  4. your shoes are truly beautiful ! and i love the tied up denim shirt :)

  5. yes i agree with everyone above, those shoes are so cute! and just so you know, i do use a tripod during my photo shoots. it's actually life changing. i mean, you don't have to wait on anyone being available to take them for you and you don't have to risk breaking your camera (yes i've done this) by positioning it on a rock or tree limb or whatever for the wind to blow over. tripod is the way to go.
