Who could resist the heart print? I couldn't.

Shirt: Thrifted; Skirt: Thrifted; Socks + Booties: Target; Bag: Vintage

This bag, though a little beat up, is one of my favorite possessions. I found it in a much loved antique store in Cape Girardeau a couple of years ago, when Matt and I were living there. I admired it for weeks until I convinced myself that the price on the tag was appropriate and the bag necessary. No regrets! It's sturdy structure has served me well and I get complimented on it quite frequently.

My hair is starting to get long enough to where I can try some new things now again, and so here I braided it into pigtails, then twisted the pigtails around each other. It's not too pretty, and there are about a million bobby pins in there, but I thought it looked passable and it held up through the evening. What's your favorite I-actually-put-a-little-effort-in-today hairstyle? One of my best friends fashioned a bow out of her own hair last weekend, and it turned out beautifully! Maybe one day mine will be long enough...

Have a great start to your weekend!

    1. Aw, thanks Marlena! You're so sweet.
      I didn't need talking into the bag, just the price. But looking back, it was definitely worth it.

  6. Your whole outfit just speaks to me. Not in a weird way or anything, but the mint, the heart print, and especially the Dooney & Bourke bag (my vintage bag is my most used purse by far) are all so easy on the eyes ;). Glad I stumbled across your blog!
