2/15 | Stuck in the Middle


Here's Nummer Zwei (making use of my 7 years of German class)! These pictures are the first (and only - so far) taken with my new remote! It took a little getting used to but it's nice not having to run back and forth between my camera. I'm not so good at hiding the remote so I'm pretty sure you don't see my right hand in any of these photos.


(shirt dress [remixed] h&m, cardigan h&m, belt forever 21, wedges seychelles, necklace forever 21)

These pictures were taken at my middle school. I decided to take a nice drive over and snap some shots. I have some pretty damn amazing (and bittersweet) memories there. It was weird being back and remembering everything - middle school friends, my first boyfriend, detentions, places I've cried, places I've laughed...I could go on forever. I'll never forget those three years of my life but let's just say I'm glad they're over!


So recently I've decided that this shirt dress was one of the best purchases I've made in the past year besides my new camera lenses. It's ridiculously versatile and I've worn it so many different ways! I hope I can fit into it for the rest of my life. I can definitely see an 80-year-old Jen frolicking in the fields in this shirt dress (or, if not, my future granddaughter can wear it and call it vintage...and then sell it on etsy as a vintage find!) :P

  9. I love picture number three (that's English, I've known it all my life). :P
    The cardigan looks cozy and whenever I put on a t-shirt dress it looks like a potato sack. Maybe I should belt them. Would that help?

  13. Your statement necklace is beautiful as is this entire ensemble! I love it! I wish I had a remote for my camera, or a stand for my camera, or a camera that could at least stand on it's own. Haha! These pictures look absolutely great!

  24. Haha, you hid the remote REALLY WELL :) I didn't realize that you're using a remote until you mentioned it. You had great poses there ;)

    Yes I agree, this dress is extremely versatile! I've seen you remixed it so many times and each time, it looked different :) And I adore your wedges. I need that kind of shoes for work!!

    Tchüss! :D

  25. I love the blue shirt dress...I've been searching for a shirt dress that exactly resembles the one your wearing now. Too bad H&M store is not yet open in my country. You work it Girl…You look perfect with these outfits.:)))

  26. this outfit is so cute. i need to invest in a shirt dress.

  27. This is pretty brillz. I could wear this to the office if it weren't so damn hot lately here in Detroit.

    Do you know how both happy and envious I am that someone almost 10 years my junior has this much style at that age? When I was your age, I dressed like a street urchin.

    This is enviable and definitely humbling, but also really, really inspiring in equal measure. Knowing that younger generations know how to compose fashion well, with ideas of proportion and style, remixing, and mixing high and low end duds is a good sign. It gives me hope that perhaps this world is not confined to waves of A&F slutty campwear-clad teens growing into slutty camp-wear clad adults.

    You look wonderful.

    And I agree, this was a great buy.

    If you bought it recently, I can imagine myself going out to H&M and grabbing myself one. It's very versatile.

    PS. Maybe if I'd had a style blog back when I started blogging in 2000, I probably would've had much more style to start out with. LOL!

  30. Again, love this! Shirt dresses are just amazing aren't they? Those wedges are fantastic. I need to get some wedges for myself. They are like the perfect step between flats and heels. :)
