Florals and Ruffles and Stripes Oh My






top: Downeast, cardi: Banana Republic Outlet, denim leggings: F21, belt: Gap, shoes: Old Navy scarf: Basel, Switzerland

Lunch was a special treat today! Maria and I took a little trip to the Antique Mall-she had never been. She's on the lookout for a fabulous dresser for her oldest son and we got lost for an hour in the maze of vintage smelling halls. The books! Oh you guys the books. I could have spent a month just staring at the bindings, let alone even delving inside. There was a gorgeous necklace there too that I'm regretting not buying. If it's still there tomorrow and I still remember, I may just breakdown and get it. So pretty.

Then around 5:30 I got a text from husband saying he missed my freckles! I love how specific he is in his love for me. :) He was specifically missing my summer freckles after looking at some photos and tell you what I do too. I'm getting the January Blues. Luckily a trip down south is happening in a few weeks! YES! Lots of pictures and hiking and hugging my Grandparents. And hopefully the Egg & I. It will be perfect.

So, should I do 30 for 30 again? Opinions, please. I'm all a dither. And for the record, I adored remixing. So I may have answered my own question. But still tell me what you think.

Oh, did you guys want to know who the winners of the earrings are? Me too...let's find out!

  1. Yes, absolutely you should do it! I am going at it for the first time and could use a veteran for some inspiration and tips, especially from someone who loved remixing!

  5. I think you should absolutely do the 30 for 30 again! I am not even close to knowing what my 'style' is, but I'm taking a deep breath and diving into the 30 for 30 hoping it will teach me some valuable lessons about my wardrobe. It would be so nice to have someone who knows what they're doing to give some inspiration and advice! :)

    I adore your outfit, btw.
