Vintage-y Inspired


Three cheers for having Photoshop now! Hip hip, hooray! 





Where I got it:
Shirt-Vanity
Necklace-Charlotte Russe
Skirt & Belt-Forver 21
Shoes-Clarks


Quirkiness & Awesomeness ---->

-I love my husband and our quirkiness. Friday night we went out to a movie, got a big bin of popcorn, then went out for frozen yogurt and came home. As soon as we got back to the house I looked at Josh and we had a little convo like this:
Me- Do you want to go to another movie?
Josh: ...Yeah!
So we looked up another movie time, went to the same exact theater and splurged. It was spontaneous and perfect. And we didn't get home until the wee hours of the morning. Absolute best night. 

-Josh opened up the locket in the above pictures and declared that I should put a picture of his abs in there. He's quite the ham. But it reminded me of a childhood story, back in the day when I was obsessed with a capital O over animals. I had this little locket and I cut out a picture of my cat and dog and sloppily pasted them in the locket. But since the pictures were a little jagged the locket was always busting open. Dude. I loved that necklace and wore it 24/7 for a couple years. I probably looked like some looney child. Oooh the embarrassing memories of childhood...

-So today I opened up Josh's grandfather's garage door and a strange cat ran out... All I can say is I think he's holding out on me... Hah, no, but seriously. He's not too fond of animals so all I'm wondering is how'd that cat get in there? And how long was it in there for? By the velocity of it's escaping speed I'd say it was probably in there for a while. Poor, poor kitty. 



xo,

    1. I actually got the skirt about a year ago from Forever 21, but I looked at some sites and found some that are similar, here are the links:

      Hopefully that was helpful! Just keep looking at those sites and a similar skirt will show up :)

  37. Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE this look! It really does look completely authetic and vintage! I think I NEED to find these shoes! I've discovered I have an average-to-wide foot, but fairly narrow ankles and cannot get pumps to no flip unless they have a strap.
