ABOUT THIS LOOK: I've liked the idea of mixing vintage items, Americana goods and designer apparel. Plus, I really wanted to type out "Marc by Marc Jacobs" and "Pendleton" in the same blog post. I wanted to create a faded and dusty look for the field. Warm colors, like the 1901 camel colored shoes and MBMJ warm mauve undershirt, were already being drawn out from the Pendleton shirt.
This leather bomber jacket is one of my favorite pieces that I own. I'm always scared for some reason to pair it with dress shoes and think I need to wear it with boots of some sort. However, I've been rocking it with my bucks, wallabees and even Sperrys a few times. Why not, eh?
ABOUT THIS LOCATION: I grew up flying kites in this field. It's at the bottom of my street from my childhood home. Besides, dodging cow shit as we ran unto the ends of the earth (or so it seemed), I loved looking down the hill—the hill that I hated to bike up so much. But I became so thankful for where I grew up. I didn't have to stare off into an endless suburban wasteland of cookie cutter houses nor at any brick apartments outside my window. The cows down the street in the field, the airport farther up the road a couple of miles and a general store up the street near my elementary school.
