Friends and Books

Je' Suis and I officially agreed that we feel much less silly taking outfit pictures of each other rather than ourselves. They turn out so much better, take much less time, AND when we're out n' about, some nice gentleman is likely to come by ask if we'd like him to take a picture of us together. "Why, yes. That would be so nice, thank you."

Elaina hadn't been to the James J. Hill Library in downtown St. Paul since she was 14, so we made plans to check it out. It's such a gorgeous place...(sigh)...I love the city.


I'm not always happy with my outfits, but I was this day. I couldn't wait to wear my lacy 'grandma' sweater from Ross. And it was my first time wearing this ivory, corduroy skirt I picked up a G2. And also my first time wearing these shiny reds. They're sooo cute, and comfy too! Had I found a yellow brick road, I may have been inclined to follow it.



Sweater: Ross, $10
Skirt: J. Crew via Goodwill Outlet, pennies
Tights: maybe Target?
Shoes: Connie via Famous Footwear
Coat: Target brand, free from clothes-swap
Purse: Indeed, thrifted

Is there really a Ross in the Cities?! Or did you pick that sweater up out of town and my hopes are dashed again? ;)
