I've had this outfit pinned for such a long time, but I didn't think that my light blue striped top was the right top for the look. Flash forward (or backward?) to this summer when I visited my parents. My mom asked me if I wanted a striped top because it no longer fit her. Um, yes, yes I do want it. (Thanks, Mom!) So when the weather unexpectedly dropped twenty-three degrees overnight, this outfit came to be. Am I allowed to say that I really like how this turned out? Because I do. I also discovered today that I like fried jalapeno slices. And now I'm in the mood for jalapeno poppers. Danggit.
