You know your mommy is awesome when she sends you a bag of clothes that she's picked up for you at Goodwill in the past month. Including, but not limited to, a shapeless red polka dot button up shirt that she is confident you could make use of.

Oh Mommy. You know me too well.


Don't you just love when an outfit magically comes together when you're running late? I wasn't planning on wearing any of these things when I woke up, but left the house wearing them. It's rare that this happens and I'm actually happy with my outfit for the rest of the day. Not to mention that I finally achieved a messy bun that I was happy with--  also a rare occurrence. I would say that some of my favorite outfits have been ones that I didn't lay out the night before or plan in my head when I can't fall asleep. They have been ones that just happen. 

Since moving into our new place, I have been trying to figure out the best places in the house for photo-taking. You know, like any good blogger should! Clearly the morning light in my soon-to-be craft room isn't great, so I guess there is still more experimenting to do.

So much to do, so little time! And by that I mean so much house to decorate, ideas to pin, and magazines to look at, and not enough time, money, or space.


  1. I still have not found a good indoor photo taking spot. The places where there's enough sun are ugly backgrounds...no one wants to see my messy book shelf. Love that shirt...it matches your blog!

  2. I love your shirt, I'm all about the polka-dots, Good job mom!
    My mom randomly picks up things for me too! I can't wait to see what she's bringing me in next weekend from her thrifting adventures.

  3. Your mom did good! That polka dot top is too cute.

    I HATE the way my photos come out inside with my crappy camera but soon I'll probably have no choice since winter is coming!

  5. haha! i agree about pinning and inspiring, without the time and money. and how great of your mom to send you these things! i love that top and your hair does look great!

  6. Absolutely great outfit! That blouse with the cigarette pants is perfect.

  7. Fab blouse; what a great Mommy! If shipping weren't so expensive I'd have my Mom ship some Goodwill finds over to France! Sadly lacking in thrift shops here .... Sigh.

    Belated congrats on your house; how exciting!

  8. Super pretty outfit!!
