This is a Ransom Note

ransom note
works cited: j. crew tee and skirt; clarks wedges; scarf c/o le mode; belt from my mom (but "borrowed" from my sister, who is currently its possessor)

My mom has a great collection of vintage belts from the 70's that my sister and I ransacked a few years back. Rachel came away with this one (it's vintage Coach) and I've since coveted it. So this weekend while I was "helping" my sister pack, I "borrowed" this belt from her. It's not just my greed and older-sister-bossiness that made me swoop down on this belt; I have other, more sinister plans for it. I will hold it at ransom until she books a plane ticket to come visit me. Hear that, Rachie?--if you want to see your belt alive, you better come visit, because I miss you already.

lolol, I often "borrow" things from my sister as well, but she has to travel a little bit farther (she's currently living in Australia).

And I loooove this outfit - the scarf perfectly pops off the gorgeous summery neutrals!

Love the all white and the belt is to die for! I'm sure your little sister doesn't mind that you borrowed it (for eternity, possibly!).

Loren said...

I get super jealous every time I see someone wearing a cute brown leather belt, I can't seem to find any that fit me. I also love your skirt/scarf combo here.

Good idea on the "borrowing" things from your sister! Hopefully this will help her to visit you more often.

this is so easy breezy and simple, i love it. you look like an off-duty archaelogical scholar traveling abroad or something, and i mean that as a compliment because that's about as cool as it gets in my opinion :)

Ashley said...

LOVE the white outfit, your vintage belt and amazing colorful scarf and comfy looking wedges are the perfect compliments for this outfit!!

I am a fan of whatever fanciness you have worked with that scarf, there. Verrrry cute! I would never think to do the white-tan thing, but it really shows off the scarf and belt! Mad props to you, yo.

That is a GORGEOUS vintage belt. I've been scouring Etsy and Ebay for a really nice, classic leather belt but haven't had much luck. If only I had older sister's closet to raid!

Love how you wore your scarf too, by the way :) I need to involve more scarves in my life!

Renee said...
