well, it’s a new year and i’m back at home after the holidays slowly transitioning back to my usual routine. whenever i visit my hometown of redlands, i always imagine that i’ll have all this time to snap outfit photos in from of all my favorite spots, but relaxing in the warmth of my grandmother’s home with my brother and sister, aunts and uncles, and cousins, usually lures me away from my usual antics. but i did snap these photos on the last day of the year in front of the historic a.k. smiley public library. i have many memories in this place, hudled on the marble floors flipping through books.
i’m also wearing what i can easily say is my current favorite outfit. if i could get away with it, i’d wear this every day. the little tunic is handmade out of a velvety soft fine wale corduroy, and it matches so perfectly with the embroidered details of this vintage blouse. and the pièce de résistance is my new carven coat which i scored on super sale as a little christmas gift to myself. it has quickly put all of my other coats to shame.
