oh hello! i feel like it’s been a long while since i’ve done an actual outfit post! so this is what i wore to work yesterday! it ended up being a bit too chilly for me to take of my coat, but underneath i am wearing a cute little mod mini dress that my mom gave me when i got to see her over the weekend for my sister’s wedding. she lives in tucson, and apparently they have pretty good vintage and thrift out there, because she’s been picking up all sort of amazing pieces here and there over the past several months that she thought i might like. if you were ever wondering how i became obsessed with vintage, now you know that i have my mother to blame! neither of us can ever keep ourselves from obsessively hunting for vintage finds. we both meet up every few months with our bounties to exchange and the process continues. oh dear. it runs in the family.
dress: vintage 60’s dress from my mom
shoes: vintage salvatore ferragamo flats
bag: j.w. hulme mini legacy bag
pin: sly fox wooden brooch by lucie ellen
hello! i’m back from my long birthday weekend! but before i go on and on about what i’ve been up to for the past four days, i want to take a moment to thank you all so so so much for your lovely birthday wishes. it made me feel extra special, and i really appreciate it!
anyway, as promised, we took lots of pictures of our weekend adventures. this set is from our first day in mendocino. we drove for about three hours through beautiful country roads on a particularly pleasant and sunny day. when we arrived in mendocino, we checked in to our cabin (complete with our own private hot tub), but since there were still some daylight left, we headed out to some cliffs overlooking the ocean to snap some pictures and catch the sunset.
i opted to wear an easy outfit consisting of this adorable dear creatures shift dress that i had wanted last spring when it came out, but failed to pick up when it was still available. lucky for me, my pal lindsay just so happened to have said dress, and gladly passed it on to me! it makes me feel a bit like a girl scout, which seemed like the appropriate attire for a day spent outdoors. and for the perfect coincidence of the day, i happened to receive this beautiful tote bag from kate spade in the mail right on my birthday! just the thing for a weekend away.
