Riveting

Well, you know how things go. It's Saturday and you're spending the day cleaning, packing, and doing laundry. So, a little motivation in the form of Rosie the Riveter can't hurt, right? I didn't realize when I got dressed Saturday morning that I looked rather like the woman sporting the "We Can Do It!" slogan. It's probably the scarf that sways the look in that direction :) But that's alright! We needed all the motivation we could to clean out a really huge chunk of our apartment. It will help later on when we won't have to pack so much of our place up at one time!
 

This blouse was free at a rummage sale. I saw the collar peeking through on the rack and gasped a bit because it was so beautiful! But I saw a few stains on the front of the pleated top. When I showed them the stains they let me just take it!  Now I have this pretty little piece to wear with oh so many things.


It's thunderstorms for us today! Rain and thunder and awesomeness :)

God Bless!

Oh gosh, I just love that second photo, Katie!! You really are channeling your inner Rosie the Riveter. I love it so much. I hope it helped to motivate you through your daunting tasks around the house, ehehe. :)

The lace collar on your blouse is super pretty. And I love the print on your scarf!

Rosie the Riveter is so boss! This look is so amazing - that top is such a great find! If you didn't get the stains out, you could always dye it an adorable color and cover up the stains; just an idea! Hope that you had a super lovely weekend!
