wear: copying bee.

hey! do you guys read atlantic pacific
or...rather, look at atlantic pacific? she's short on words but not on style.
 (was that cheesy? that was cheesy. i'm sorry.) 

anyway, i love checking out her blog and, though it's unlikely i'll ever afford the type of clothes she wears, i can still draw inspiration from her and try to incorporate some of her style in my own way. 
when i saw this outfit i immediately pinned it to my "wear that" board. (are you guys on pinterest, yet?) i knew i had the basic components of this outfit, but i had to make mine iowa-friendly. we have had unseasonably warm weather, but i think bare legs (though cuter) might have been pushing it a bit. 
also, converse that aren't ten years old might be cuter, too. 
but hey, these babies have stood the test of time & i'm not giving up on them yet!
jacket: heritage
dress: french connection / von maur
shirt: banana republic
tights: target ?
shoes: converse
