there's no other love like the love for a brother

Today I wore this to work...I wanted to combine the casual denim and sneakers with the black dress (and I actually found out later in the day that my tights were navy and not black...that's what I get for dressing in the dark!), and I love the result. I also did a super high pony tail which I haven't been able to do in such a long time!

Here's the necklace my grandma gave me at Christmas. It's a shilling design from 1928.

I like that I'm posting more pictures of my accessories lately because it makes me want to put on things like these buttons which I had been neglecting in my jewelry box.

I've gotten really good at timing these jumping pics, but today I was so off! I took almost four before I got one where I was actually in the air. That's ok...does it count as exercise?!

I also want to give a shout out to my awesome brother who's going through a rough time right now. I love him so much no matter what.

I always look forward to your jump shots!
I love that little telly pin, I've been really craving brooches and pins lately, to put on sweaters and lapels, so those close up shots are totally on my wavelength

a) I always admire your relaxed dressing in the cold. Will the snow never leave where you live? b) A remote control would probably make things easier (but reduce the excercise). c) I recently posted a picture of my brother (and his gorgeous baby daughter), too. Not sure if he liked it, but I did ask his permission first.

I like that you used a denim shirt as a jacket, it really makes the outfit look so casual chic!
