Camel & Gray

There's nothing better than spending the day with family and friends. Hannah and I decided to do a little Thanksgiving Day photoshoot, the turkey was in the oven and there was nothing else to do but wait! Ryan was kind enough to take all the photos, and we had fun prancing about the yard, still wet from the previous days' rain. The cats were running around being quite comical too, climbing into trees and rolling in the west grass.

Ruby Slippers

I received these beautiful vintage snakeskin (I believe? But I'm no real expert...) slingbacks for my birthday a month ago. I had my eye on them at an antique store up in Hooksett, NH, and Mama Rose had gotten them for me! I'm still amazed at the nearly perfect condition they are still in. The leather is soft and shiny despite being probably around 60ish years old. I've been daydreaming about wearing them with yellow tights, so when I put on yellow tights with my navy blue dress today, I decided to take a few quick photos with them on.

Now it's off to the library...two days until I fly home to NH for Thanksgiving with my family!

I've got the Chills!

It finally feels like winter here in Nashville! It's blustery and chilly out, time for scarves and yummy mittens!

Unfortunately, with the cold comes the...colds. I am sniffly and sneezy (boo hoo hoo). However, I am all warm inside from the lovely post that Lauren of Blooming Leopold did of me. Click over to read an interview and enter for a chance to win one of my cupcake skirts! :)

Goodnight, Sweetheart

It has come to my attention that I have accumulated several beautiful vintage bed jackets over the years, and they always seem to get pushed off to the side and forgotten about. Upon realizing this tragedy, this morning instead of donning my usual skirts/tights/bow combo, I went for a different kind of whimsical vibe (whimsical because well, how can one not be when wearing unicorn heels, hm?)

Pairing my pale blue, peter pan-collared jacket with rolled jeans and rather large bird earrings that have been collecting dust for several years now, I felt a bit refreshed walking out of the house. There's nothing like a good wardrobe change up to pull you out of any kind of slump, I think!
