Better Together

Jumping off point: new blue button-up.

I have watched other bloggers rock simple button-ups for the last several months. Under a thin sweater, under a pretty pearl bib necklace, this staple can look great in oh so many ways! (But not if you don't have one.) I didn't, until last week. I had a lovely Old Navy gift card and with it, I obtained the perfect trench coat (which will definitely be showing up in posts shortly) and a great new shirt.


Shirt: Old Navy. Necklace: NY&Co. Belt: Thrifted. Shorts: Old Navy. Shoes: Call it Spring.

"Just ONE outfit picture?" you say? "But you usually put so many pictures of yourself on here!" you say.

True. But it just wasn't working for me the day I took these. The pictures that really came out great are of some other little posers in my house that day. My family came down to visit! Look what a little model my sister is:



I know, right? And yes, she just looks like that. 5'9". Yup. Exactly model-size. And here's my "little" brother:


I was so thrilled to see them last week! There's nothing better than being surrounded by family.



  1. you and your sister are both beautiful!! and i've got to get my bum to old navy--i love that button-up.
    it's funny that you left a note about dot--she just wrote me a few weeks ago saying that she knows two friends who live just a block away from me (katie adams), whose husband studies in my department.
    small world indeed!

  2. Ahh! I love that button up. I want a classic blue button up oxford shirt...just haven't found the right one yet. Or, rather, the right price. :) And I can't wait to see the trench! I'm obsessed with trenchcoats.

    Also, your sister really is perfect model size. But hey, you're pretty gorgeous yourself! :)


  3. Oh I looove those shoes! And button ups are the best- they are so versatile! =)
