Cami: No idea; Tied Shirt: Vintage; Skirt: Thrifted; Necklace + Booties: Target; Backpack: Thrifted


So...I know photos are not supposed to be taken in direct sunlight, but I really love this used bookstore by our apartment, and I couldn't resist. Sue me. Adams' is one of those musty places with books covering every square inch of possible floor space, leaving only a small walking path and a couple of inches of ventilation just shy of the ceiling. It's a great place to find a seat on an available stack of books and just get lost in whatever your heart desires. Thus, I felt the need to pose in front of it : ).

This skirt is one of my favorite vintage pieces. It's a great mustard-almost-brown color and reeks of mad men- what's not to love? And yes, I used a tied shirt as an accessory, a la Jennifer; I try to brink back the 90s as much as possible.

Happy weekend, y'all! Make it a good one!

  3. I can completely see why this skirt is one of your favorite pieces, it's amazing! And I know nothing about photography so I'm not sure if it means anything when I say I love these photos, especially the sunlight :)

    1. Why thank you! : )
      I actually think they turned out alright- the coloring was a bit off, maybe. But if I like them, that's what matters, right? : )

  5. This bookstore looks awesome! Im loving the floral cardi and the necklace! Also, the red dress from the previous post is SO pretty! Definitely learn how to sew, I literally practiced with ONE dress with my boyfriend's mom and have been going crazy ever since! It took maybe 3 hours tops to learn all the basics! If you have any questions feel free to ask always, but I am definitely no expert yet! It opens up a whole new world of possibilities while thrift shopping :)
    Hope youre having a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! : )
      And I know! I always see so many things while thrifting that would be amazing if only a little shorter, less baggy, etc. I've got the itch to learn! And thanks for being so willing to help!
