If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have noticed that I’ve somewhat disappeared the past few days. That’s because I’m in California right now, visiting my mom for the week! She’s seen my blog before but she doesn’t quite get the whole idea of blogging so I showed her a little more in depth and have been having fun explaining blogging, sponsors, google analytics and the lot. I asked her on Thursday if she would take some outfit photos for me to include in a blog post and she happily obliged. So here I am in my Grandparents’ back yard after a day of thrifting and looking at model homes with my mom.
This is one of my faaaaaavorite dresses! I got it during an awesome sale at Dorothy Perkins along with one other that I haven’t worn yet because I need to take it in a teensy bit at the waist. Dorothy Perkins is always having great sales and I have to stop myself from spending all my money there…
I love these green trimmed sunglasses; I’ve been wearing them a lot so far this spring. I got them at a little boutique called Shoe Gypsy in Oklahoma City when I was visiting my friend Rachael. I wish I had a better shot of the pin on my collar! It’s a Triceratops (rawr!) and it’s vintage. I was going to put it in my etsy shop, Trash Treasury Vintage but I couldn’t bear to part with the little guy.
I also didn’t get any close ups of my bracelets. One is polished chunks of Tiger’s Eye and I got it at Blue Seven in Oklahoma City. The light blue one is actually made of guitar strings and it’s from Uncommon Goods. I’m going to get better shots of that one along with a couple other items that Uncommon Goods sent to me to review soon. The purse is probably my favorite purse that I own. It’s Melie Bianco and I got it second hand at Bad Granny’s Bazaar in Oklahoma City. My tights are from JCPenny and ballet flats by American Eagle.
It’s so nice to be visiting my mom. I haven’t had the chance in over a year, so I’m really enjoying this week. I’ll try to keep blog posts coming throughout my vacation, but you probably still won’t see much of me elsewhere until I’m back on Wednesday the 9th. Hope you’re all having a great week too!
