a recent e-mail from my padre:

Hi Caitlin,

Came across these fashion pictures which demonstrate the art of combining parts of different outfits to create a whole new fashion just like you do in your blog. Note the shirt from the workday world in the country, the shorts from the athletic field, dress socks, and shoes from the out of doors! Stunning combination wouldn’t you say?!!



stunning is right.

when i asked if i could use these on the blog, this was his response:

Hi Caitlin,

You can use it on your blog.  Such fashion expertise should not be kept a secret from the rest of the world.



welcome to the fashion world, dad.

    Ohhh my gosh, that is hilarious. What a great sense of humor (and fashion… ahem) haha.

    At first, I thought you were titling your blog “Stunning” in reference to your outfit! That would have been totally out of character :) But, it is a very cute outfit.


    • Caitlin August 25, 2012 at 9:21 AM

      Lol. He is quite the fashionist-o. And thanks :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  • franishh August 23, 2012 at 7:14 PM

    hahhaha. how funny are those emails. He should have claimed you can share the pictures only if you link back to his blog! ;)

    P. S. I love your outfit too. That shirt is a great find!

    • Caitlin August 25, 2012 at 9:22 AM

      Lol. I don’t know what the world would be in for if he started a blog…

      And thanks! Have a great weekend!
