the details
hat - thrifted
sweater - thrifted
dress - Target
belt - thrifted / vintage
shoes - c/o Le Bunny Bleu

I've had this sweater for quite some time and had yet to wear it until this day. The day I found it I also found the most beautiful, yellow vintage dress with the most amazing collar and they go together like peas and carrots (lamb and tuna fish? if you know what that's from, we can be friends! :P) But the dress is just slightly fancy so I can't really see myself wearing it in the woods so as a result this poor sweater has been neglected. Now that it's gotten a taste of the fresh air I have a feeling it's going to be high rotation!

Hope you have a fabulous day! I'm going to start working on a hilarious costume for Doctor Octopus today, that will definitely be the highlight of my day. I cannot wait to show you what we've got in store for you!
xoxo

  2. I just had a baby 4 months ago and have been struggling with losing weight and have been pretty down and boring lately. I stumbled across your blog the other day and have been inspired! I told my husband that I am going to start dying my hair again and making clothes and shoes again. Might even finally get that tattoo I've been wanting. Thanks so much!

    1. not yet! Trying to find the right occasion. It's not something I normally just wear around the house. (Okay, I am making it sound WAY fancier than it is. Haha. But, for some reason it just feels like something I can't lounge around the house in like I do my other clothes.)

    Liam and I often recite "fish...pony... Hip, hipop, hipop anonymous?" and if we ever make promises we always says "you swear?" "i schwear!" you know that film you have that you always have to watch when you're I'll? Yeah, that's Liam's "sick" film!
    "and he taught me that Styxx was one of the greatest American rock bands and they only caught a bad rap because all critics are cynical assholes!" my goodness, I love this movie!
