All this talk of busyness and I have to confess. Much of it is self created, too. I have a tendency to create more work for myself. Why do I do that? Probably procrastination, I guess and an inability to really say no when I've reached my limit. But I just wanted to put it out here and be honest. After having a week that was filled with events, concluding with my own as co-host of our rooftop concert series, I need to keep it real.

So yeah, I'm getting back into the swing of outfit shoots and posts and all that good stuff. And there is so much good stuff. I haven't even begun to reach the limits of the amazing vintage haul from summer. Just wait.
This felt hat was a real steal at Saver's in Madison. One of our favorite things to do as a family is poke through that shop. There's so much for everyone - board games, second hand kids clothes and toys, kitchen items and home furnishings, etc. This summer we even found some great vintage chairs for our kitchen table.
The polkadot dress is an 80s gem which I found at the Long Beach Antique Market (read more about this market and my vintage road trip here). In addition to being my favorite print, it's also cotton and has pockets, so it was a must have from the start. Not to mention the bow at the waist which just put this dress over the top cute for me, but in a good way.
The black and tan purse is vintage Liz Claiborne, another charity/thrift shop find. And with all this black and white, I couldn't wait to try out a new background in Stanley Market, this red and green tiled doorway. It's amazing how you can live in a place for 10 years and still find new nooks and crannies, isn't it?
In any case, the chaos continued after this shoot (which took place while my big girl was at art and I was running my son into look for new shoes). No sooner had we wrapped things up and walked back to the car only to notice that I'd gotten a parking ticket.
Oh the joys of real life. By the way, I promise I did not read anyone's mail.
