Winter Challenge: Decade or Region

The bangs, they need a trim. Expect me to get on that in approximately three months. I am very bad at getting these kinds of things taken care of.

I realized when I was getting dressed for this challenge that I have quite a lot of clothing from around the world, because my lovely mother keeps traveling and then instead of bringing home huge, hideous t-shirts that I would never wear, but probably use to clean my toilet, she brings home awesome items of clothing that I very much enjoy wearing.

This scarf was from a service trip she took with my dad and younger brother to Honduras a couple of years ago.

Dressed and done. 

Shirt: Old Navy, Scarf: Honduras, Skirt: Downeast Basics
Tights: Kohl’s, Shoes: Payless

I’m participating in Kayla’s Winter Challenge. Check it out on her blog:

    That skirt is so pretty! It's perfect paired with the red shoes and teal scarf.

    Those shoes! I'm pretty sure I now will die if some red wedges don't come into my life. I love the red and the grey together as well.

    I love the double layer hem on your skirt. And the scarf is the perfect pop of color.

    Hi Janssen, I enjoy peeking at your lovely blog sometimes. Just read your "about" section and found a couple of connections. My sister is getting her Masters in library science in Boston, and my family and I are preparing to move to San Antonio. I hear there is a lot of fun going on in Austin, so I'm sure we'll spend some time there!
