Peter Pan Collared Top + Chunky Heels

What a relief is to have my sister-in-law, Elyse, taking my photos again. I love my camera, and I always like how my pictures turn out with it, but it's always nice to have someone who actually knows something about photography helping me rather than me just pretending like I do. I still miss my college days of having my photographer friends help me, so whenever I get to take advantage of Elyse's skills, I jump at the chance. I wore a similar version of this outfit last weekend when it was raining, but now that it has finally warmed up, I was all too excited to break out these Hello Holiday heels for the first time in months. Hello again, bare legs and chunky heels. I've missed you.

This weekend was a special one, as Jon and I celebrated our one year anniversary. It's kind of crazy; we've been close friends for about eight years, so it's hard to believe that we've only been dating for a year. I feel so strange getting sappy on the Internet, but it honestly has been the happiest I've ever been in a relationship. Everything is so easy and natural with him, and I've become that giddy girl who I've always ridiculed by being with him. It's disgusting. All of my cynicism is gone. Someone slap me.

This skirt is definitely wrinkled in these photos, but that's what happens when you stuff an outfit into a tote bag to bring to your parents' house so that you can take multiple sets of pictures in one sitting. I may look sloppy, but it's really just an example of my killer time management skills.

Top, cardigan: Thrifted
Skirt: J. Crew


  1. I really love the top and skirt together. Something about the daintyness of the collar with the bold geometric pattern of the skirt. They work well together.

  2. I'm so happy for you (and for Jon too!) Sometimes it is hard to remember that almost every relationship you have except for a few, really, is going to be not the right fit, and it is so amazing when you find a person who changes how you see love. Congrats!
