Hand Me Downs

5 Dec




Dress: Express (similar)
Jacket: Unknown
Boots: Madden Girl
Watch: Micheal Kors

As the oldest child with few older cousins who lived nearby when I was growing up, hand me downs weren’t a common occurrence. As a kid, hand me downs seemed like a luxury, something special and loved that you could then make your own. So now when my cousins offer me clothing for one reason or another, I’ll gladly take them up on the offer.

This jacket was one such piece. Though it was originally a trendy suit jacket, I see it more as a flattering feminine layer with an edgy twist. Here I’ve paired it with one of my all time favorite dresses (which you’ve also seen here)

Really enjoying the cool weather as of late because I’ve been able to break out all of my snuggly warm clothes.
