Outfit: Let the Rummaging Begin

Greetings! While the weather has taken another little downward turn, I'm still basking in the glow of last week and all of those 60-70 degree days. It was in the 70's here on Saturday, so Sean and I decided to do our first bit of rummage sale-ing which is my (and I think secretly Sean's too) favorite Saturday activity. It gets us out walking and exploring our city. Plus it's much better than traditional shopping. There are things for both of us to look at instead of one of us being bored while I look at clothes or he looks at electronics. It's also such a cheap way to quell that shopping itch. This past weekend we found a beautiful quilt for our guest bed, several books, and a couple of other little treasures, it was a great day! 

I went for a four mile run that morning, so my wet hair went up into a bun, and I donned my new Hot Paris Pink lipstick. I just have to complement Wet'n'Wild on their lipstick collection. I hate spending money on beauty products, and at 96 cents a tube, I can justify trying out a new shade every now and then.

This little man-made reservoir/lake is a few blocks away from our house in our neighborhood and I kind of freaked out when I found the quirky mint green benches along this little trail. Can I get one for my house please?

Have a splendid Monday Peaches!
God Bless,

Romans 6:8-9
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.

This is such an adorable outfit! The blues compliment each other so well, and the Peter Pan collar is the icing on the cake.

That's great you could get some rummage sale-ing in this weekend! My boyfriend and I are the same way: we BOTH like antiquing, so it's not as awkward as shopping at the mall sometimes is because golly, does he hate sitting around while I peruse H&M or Forever 21, and I'm not always keen on browsing through GameStop. :P

Cheers and have a great week!

You look cute with your hair up :) And how nice to live near a reservoir. There's one not too far from me and it's a great place to go for a walk.
