30 for 30 day 4: Prep

When I woke up yesterday morning, I decided to wear jeans, a baggy sweater and ballet flats.  So one may ask, how then, did I end up in a skirt, a fitted sweater and 4 inch heels?  The answer is, I don’t know. I walked in to my closed this morning put this skirt on “just to see how it feels”  and kept on adding from there. Next thing I knew, I was dressed and impressed. Seriously, I should just let my subconscious dress myself everyday because I love this outfit. I think it’s the perfect amount of whimsy and prep.
I got the vintage pins on a recent trip to Boston and have been dying to wear them but I could never find the right outfit to pair them with (until now!). Speaking of jewelry, it’s become a tradition of mine that every new place I go, I get to buy myself a new piece as a souvenir. They’re usually not very expensive pieces, but just enough to remember the trip by. Today’s jewels had me thinking of Boston, Fort Worth, TX and my very best friend. Good reminders for a good day!
Do any of you buy yourselves fashion-oriented souvenirs when you travel?

    I do that too! It is so much better than having 1,000 Ft. Worth/Boston/NYC/London/Whatever tshirts. It always takes me back to vacation when I wear the jewelry I bough.

    I love the preppy jacket with the fun skirt. Definitely artsy-cool school girl.

    I like to buy fashion souvenirs too. Heading to Iceland for my honeymoon this summer and very much looking forward to bringing home a suitcase of “souvenirs”!
