this is what i wore on a sunday trip to the alameda flea market. it was a particularly exciting trip because the last two months, it has been far too rainy to even think about going. and i think all of the bay area got the memo, because i have never seen it more crowded! apparently, it was the thing to do this weekend. we stayed for a few hours rummaging through antiques and vintage clothes, and i safely got away with a few dachshund brooches and a really beautiful mint green mohair sweater! i’m actually glad that i was able to exercise such restraint because our poor little apartment is already so cluttered!
as far as my look, i kept things pretty simple: the equivalent of jeans and a t-shirt. just replace the jeans with an easy a-line skirt and wear low heels instead of, say, sneakers. and of course, i’ve been wearing this new j.w. hulme bag with almost every outfit lately. what i love so much about it, is that not only is it a really classic look, but it’s made of thick, sturdy leather from a heritage brand that’s been around since the early 1900s. and what’s more, they are still hand made in the usa. it’s the type of purse that i hope to own for years to come, adding character with every scuff and scrape.
