Style Challenge Day 3 and Childhood Nostalgia

We are on to Day 3...and another outfit revolving around stripes....I am realizing that I have a lot of striped tops....maybe its a problem...or I am secretly worried I will be sent to prison for a crime I didn't commit.
Top-J. Crew, Jacket- Banana Republic, Jeans-Levis, Purse-Forever 21, Boots-Frye

Can we talk about these boots for a minute...they were expensive and worth every penny. Frye boots are great and will last you forever. I promise.
 *Ok so here comes the side note...Most of you who have known me throughout my whole life know that from the ages of like 5-12 I loved American Girl Dolls. My Dad was given the catalog back before Mattel bought Pleasant Company out and there were only 3 dolls available. I remember carrying around that catalog and tearing it to shreds looking and dreaming. I got my first doll, Samantha at 7 and proceeded to collect 7 more dolls over the next 5 or 6 years. They were my childhood. This past summer my niece has rediscovered her love for these dolls and I discovered that my collection was worth a lot of money. So I asked my parents to bring them down to Charlotte this week while they are here visiting and I am selling NOT ALL, but some of my collection. My mother warned me that I may have second thoughts. She actually started crying when she brought it all down from the attic to load into the car. She was right...It is currently stacked up in my bedroom and all those nostalgic I wish I was 7 again feelings have come back. I'm still selling part of the collection that I got later on when my AG phase was on its way out, but Samantha, Felicity, Kirsten, and Molly may just be staying tucked away somewhere until I have a little girl I can share them with.

I mean seriously...this is scary.
