stripes & plaid

Ann Taylor, who knew? I found this perfect little coat there a month ago during a shopping adventure with my mom (who has always loved the brand). I'll admit I didn't think I would find anything for myself, let alone fall completely in love. My plan was to patiently wait for my mom to finish looking. But those stripes! The little collar! It's proof that you can find something good practically anywhere if you look hard enough, and I always try to keep an open mind.

Liz and I started shooting these photos before meeting up with Veronika for brunch, and hilariously she stumbled upon our little photo shoot in the alley with the same intention of snapping some quick photos. Ah, bloggers! I will forever be amused by this world that I'm part of, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

All you ladies look so pretty. Serious dress envy! And I may just have to steal that idea of lettered brooch on a coat. So sweet.

Oh, how I adore your style.

Funny, but I never realised you were tall. I presume eveyone is short (like me).
