try to find a little time and I'll make you happy

Don't forget to enter the vintage purse giveaway!

I'm finally on break, and celebrating with a picture overload!


dress: thrift, $6 -- coat: thrift, $10 -- shoes: thrift, $6 -- tights: Payless Shoes, $3 -- belt: thrift, $2 -- purse: thrift, $4


Alex took these photos of me. We had a little mini photo shoot in a lovely neighborhood in one of our favorite parts of town.


Shoes and purse up close.


And I took these of Alex! He has on a thrifted L.L. Bean coat, thrifted L.L. Bean duck boots, and thrifted Wrangler jeans.


He climbed a tree!






Antler stick!


Earlier my mom treated me to coffee and brioche! Yum :)


Super tasty cappuccino the barista made. That's soy foam. Impressive, no? (I used to be a barista, actually. Soy is a lot more temperamental than milk, so getting dense foam like that is quite a show of skill.)

Today's title comes from the immortal classic The Foundations -- Build Me Up, Buttercup. Fun fact: they were one of the first successful interracial bands.

After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Kudos!
