That’s my mom’s old tee, which she bought at the Symposium on Humanity in 1979 and says “God Bless Detroit” (Check out this vintage sketch of it, shoo). The skirt I bought on (and it’s no secret that I literally wear it/draw it all the time). Who doesn’t recognize those wedges I also hardly ever take off? (Really, why do I own any other shoes? Ha.) And dad’s old backpack – loved so much it’s starting to tear. (Tears. From my eyes. Before I get around to mending it.) And, my God, the Ray Bans.

    Yes, yes, yes!! A less chic version of this is my FAVORITE thing to wear on hot days this summer. How did you find a Modcloth skirt with that great length to it??
