Rock Star

First off, let me answer a few questions:
We're leaving Philly on the 22nd, leaving the country the 11th of January, and I'm looking forward to avoiding wintery weather. Oh yeah!
And I do plan to keep blogging after the move, though I don't know exactly when I'll pick up again once we're settled in Costa Rica. Let's just say the internet/housing situation is still a little up in the air. If you're the praying type, prayers are welcome.

And now, on to the fun stuff:


Accessories remixed
Top: Kohl's - gift from my mom
Jeans: J Crew
Pumps: Nine West
Earrings: Turkey
Bracelets: gifts from my aunt and uncle

I wore this outfit last Sunday for church and also for a Christmas get together with friends and I felt like a rock star in it. Part of it is that I got these J Crew matchstick jeans on sale for $19.99 (five years ago), part of it is the studded shoulders.


See the studded shoulders? Fancy, huh? Ignore the fact that my hair is all fly away-y and everywhere in this picture. Focus on the studs. They totally kick, don't they?


Also rock star worthy? These bracelets. I've had them since I was twelve. My uncle gave me the middle one, the one with the stones, and I've always loved it. He gave my aunt, his sister, the other two, and that same Christmas that I was in Puerto Rico, I was looking through her jewelry box with her and she gave them to me. I love them together, all silver and chunky and tough.


And since there's a story about each of the things I'm wearing, can I just tell y'all that these are the shoes I wore for my wedding? B got them for me for my birthday and I wore them for our wedding six months later. I love that I can wear them all the time and that they're bright yellow. Yellow shoes always make me happy.

    You will do fine in CR although if I am not mistaken all the internet and phones are run by government meaning they are not that efficient...
    Good luck.

  16. The studs are a nice touch to your shirt. I wore blue shoes when I got married but I lost them forever ago. It's nice you can still wear yours.
