Black and White


Black and white isn't a color pallete I delve into very often, but this hat just called for it. I pulled out this short, white sweater from my grandmother and a new rummaged skirt I picked up for 50 cents. I was so excited to find a nice, black skirt with pockets! The shoes were a find from the Benson's Flea Market a while ago. They were in such perfect condition and I really enjoyed wearing them. I've just been thinking lately about how finding items like this skirt and pair of shoes are helping me to condense my wardrobe a bit. I really feel as though I'm able to get rid of a lot of my cheap, college purchases in lieu of well made, vintage items that will last a lot longer. It just takes a bit of time, that's all!


I was so glad that this hat came with hat pins attached to it! I've been in need of a pair and they really do come in handy with this windy spell we've been having. I really did love wearing my hair all rolled up this way. I wore it with two outfits that day, once to church, and also to the apple festival. I was shocked that I could get it to stay in place all day long.  Bobby pins for the win!



Well, this week sure is swinging on by! It has been so busy with a visit from my two darling nephews two days in a row! I am the luckiest auntie :). This weekend we have a wedding and my mama and sister will be staying with me, and then we have another marriage to attend the following weekend. It should be gorgeous, I love fall weddings.  I feel as though fall snuck up on me though, I had a couple of fall kickoff posts planned for the blog, but I guess they'll have to be a week late. No harm in that, right?

Have a blessed day!
