These photos were taken outside the gorgeous entryway of the Southeast Missourian (newspaper) offices in Cape Girardeau. I passed by this building a million times while Matt and were still living there, but never indulged in the urge to examine it more closely. As you'll see, there's a mural on one of the outside walls- the positioning of which Matt cleverly took advantage of when snapping these : ). I love seeing public art in smaller towns; probably because the teeny town I grew up in hardly had any at all. It's a nice reminder that you can find creative folks anywhere if you look hard enough.
On a sartorial note, (that's what you came for, right?) I picked up this fantastic coat (Gap, brand new) this very day from my favorite thrift shop in Cape. I loved it so much I tossed the coat I had been wearing right into the trunk and slipped this baby on. I think the mint & camel bring each other out quite nicely.
Well, I'm done with days off for quite some time now...here's to keeping spirits up! : ) See y'all tomorrow!
