Today, I went thrifting with Franklin. Remember what I said about him keeping me from buying stuff I don't need? Yeah. That didn't really work out today. You see, we found this thrift store less than a mile from our house, and, it was AMAZING. It's kind of hidden, and I think it's really only frequented by old ladies. The mark of a truly great thrift store, if you ask me. This is one of those places that you DO NOT tell your friends about, haha. It's our special little treasure chest, and we're keeping it a secret, heehee. We'll post up a picture later with all of the cool stuff we scored, but for now, you just get to see what I wore on our thrifting adventure:
leather satchel: thrifted //pants: urban outfitters (clearance!)
This is probably my favorite shirt. Which means: I never ever wear it, haha. It's like I treasure it so much, that I don't want any harm to come to it. Both the shirt and the satchel were finds during the western day sale at goodwill (from different years, haha). When it comes to my favorite outfits, there is usually a unusual, somewhat bright color in the mix. I'm always drawn toward burnt orange, mustard yellow, or kelly green. They are like, my favorite colors to wear, I think. And I'm so happy that fall is here, because all of my favorite clothes are for chilly weather! The past two days have been wonderfully grey and rainy, and I remember now, why I choose to live here :)
After taking the above outfit photos, on the way out the door, I stumbled over our mail, which contained a much-anticipated package from ANYKIND! It had two lovely lovely bows in it, and this is the one I've been sporting all day (It's my new favorite!):
I was so excited to get this in the mail today! I am seriously in love with my new bows. They feel super famous, too, 'cause one of my favorite bloggers made them! haha. (Thank you Jesse, you make such lovely things!)
And now, I am going to go have my fourth cup of coffee for today. I'm so tired - this week has wiped me out! I just started a new full-time job as a preschool teacher assistant! It's super hard work, but super fun, and every cute little smile and every little giggle I hear makes the job super worthwhile. I love it.
What I'm listening to: Montezuma by Fleet Foxes
okay, time for more coffee!
