On This Shrunken Globe

I wore this outfit on my last day in New York, but was far too exhausted to take a picture of it then and decided to re-create it once I got home...aka now. I threw the sweatshirt and blouse into my suitcase at the last minute on a whim and I'm so glad I did. The sweatshirt (shirt too actually) has appeared on my blog a number of times before, but it was awhile ago! It was my sister's sweatshirt from when we lived in Germany and we were both quite young. In some ways it's rather embarrassing that I still fit into a kid's sweatshirt even in a "shrunken" style, but I love the emblem so much I still wear it.

  3. Very cute! Don't be embarrassed about wearing a kids sweatshirt, because you wear it so well!

    I think the mary janes were a perfect touch. Something very simple and childish about this, but also very street.

  6. I love seeing you in pants. This outfit is both really interesting, and really, really cute. You're so adorable. I've been really intrigued by the German Language as of late.

    The studded Deux Lux bag is stunning.

  11. Aw, adorable! There's nothing wrong with sporting childhood duds-- believe me, if I could go back in time I would reclaim my old Club Monaco sweatshirts and NKOTB tees! *sigh*

    I LOVE that bag, checking out their site now!

  15. I think it's so sweet that you still have and wear the sweatshirt. I love it over the button-down!

  16. I really enjoy the rare occasions when you wear pants and we get an entirely different silhouette. And the sweatshirt logo is super-cute... I still have some pieces from my childhood that I can squeeze into (usually because they were pretty oversized to begin with however). : )

  24. This is adorable! Also this is pretty awesome because my family and I also lived in Germany when I was young (military) and I have this red Heidelberg sweatshirt that I always like to pair with a blouse. Long live sweatshirts and button downs!

  26. I know you love dresses more than anything, but I really must say you look lovely in pants as well! Would you ever consider wearing the high-waist-with-a-rolled-up-hem trouser trend? I'm so curious so see how it looks on you! (:

    And it's ALWAYS okay to still fit into kid's clothes -- they give you (or US, I should say) more possibilities for dressing up! Plus, that really is an awesome sweatshirt. I love how you made it "grown up" with those heels! <3

  27. oh my gosh you are not the only one!! I still have a bambi sweater that I refuse to give up - even though it's a little ridiculous to wear it now that i'm well, not 11 anymore.

  29. I really love this. You always look completely stunning but it threw me for a loop that you were more casual. I think this is great and the heels make the outfit.

  34. oh wow. how long did you live in Germany for? that's pretty cool. You can certainly tell that sweatshirt was probably a little big on you but it is cool that it fits you even if it does fit small...
