a real Paige turner.



So I was talking on the phone earlier this week to one of my little sisters, when I had the idea to create a series of outfits attempting to personify each of my family members. Its still cold and raining,  but I was actually really happy about how this outfit turned out, even though it’s waaaay outside of my comfort zone, and makes me look slightly milliaryish (new word. Ha).


Striped Shirt: $2 thrifted
Olive Cargos: Anthropologie online sale $20
Military Boos: Aldo $25 via eBay
Belt: Kohls
Purse: Vintage $3 via eBay
This outfit is for my second to youngest sister Paige. When she gets dressed, she likes to be comfortable, and have clothes she can move in. That is why I chose the cargo pants and the oversized shirt. They are unbelievably comfortable.  Paige is by no means a girly girl! She is tough, and smart, and extremely witty, but an extremely loyal person. That’s why I went with monochromatic colors, and tough boots.
This is me marching because my outfit is so military-ish! Don't you know all soldiers march with their lips like this?

Above all though, Paige is fun, and funny, and will always surprise you! 
That is why, wait for it….


I wore this fun, 

 FISH PURSE!!!

YAAAAAAAAAAAY! Even though it is absolutely ridiculous, and a 24 year old girl really has no excuse to be wearing it, this purse makes me so happy! I’ve named him Steve!
Justin seriously laughed out loud when he saw my getup today (mainly at Steve I think). I suppose just like Paige, I too am full of surprises!
