The weather has been so depressing lately, I don't think the sun has come out in two weeks. And our house is flooding because of all the rain. Awful!
But this gloomy weather gave me the perfect oppurtunity to don this vintage plaid cape I've been wanting to wear.

Worn with Levi's jeans, J. Crew pleated bib shirt, and Prada spring 2006 booties.

While walking around that little swamp to take these pictures, my Pradas were invaded by a swarm of ants. Ouch. 

These shoes are the best though, I swear. I wish I had them in 100 colors. LOL. No, really...I do.

This is such a great outfit, I'm really digging the mix of everything, love the plaid with the boot color especially. I also love the locations you've been using lately so much! So random since I got home from school to check your blog and when I do you post a new post? LOL. Same brainwaves Jane~ :p

you didn't answer my question, do you even read your comments? isaid:

"DO YOU OWN EVEN ONE PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES??? just wondering, i know id get tiered of heels all the time, no matter how gorgeous they are... dont you ever just throw some jeans and an old tshirt on??? do you ALWAYS have to look fabulous??? seriously, its making the rest of us look bad ;) "

and i wasnt the only one to ask if you owned any shoels without heels! please do answer my question! if you did that would be grrrrrrreat! :D

Hi, saw your blog on teen vogue, while ago. You have great style: Playful, modern, young, and chic.
Those bright red lipstick is stunning on you. Kinda like lolita in a good way. I have no shoe fetsih, more like a dress fetish. Your blog inspired me to try to explore them more.

P.S:1st time commenter.
P.S 2 : Your mom is too cool to be true :) I wanted top look like her when i'm her age. Say hi to her.
P.S 3: This kinda mother daughter relationship is not always common. Treasure and cherish it!

You look like an editorial. The cape is awesome--it reminds me of a vintage nurse's cape that I found once but didn't buy. Sad days.

I think of hunting on the countryside when I see the boots and plaid cape combo!
This outfit is so smart.

I agree about our dreary weather - where did the beautiful sunny days go?
I love this outfit Jane. It looks like you are posing for a Ralph Lauren ad. Did you lighten your hair? It looks very pretty. And I so love those Pradas!

Have a great week & good luck on your finals. :-)
