This weekend, I got a new kitten named Oliver. While looking online for pet carriers, I stumbled upon this basket for your bike. With this, now you can take your cat on relaxing bike rides with you... if you choose to do so ;)
I am not sure why, but I am already thinking about Halloween. In the past I have always been something kind-of sporty... just because it gives me an excuse to wear sneakers out. However, this year I want to get a vintage dress and be something a bit more girly, and I love this one.
So this weekend was a wash-out, but the wedding was alot of fun. I ended up spending most of the weekend in a raincoat, but on Friday I had a chance to do a little shopping and picked up a vintage scarf at a thrift store. Even though a certain someone did not like it, I felt like it added a little polish to my drenched appearance. You can find a vintage scarf of your own on the Internet or in a thrift store. I especially like the color and design of this one found on Etsy.
I have been feeling a little sad this afternoon, so to cheer myself up I am reading old posts on a blog I found over the weekend, Liebemarlene Vintage (I love her style! I wish I could go vintage shopping with her) and looking at funny old photos I had scanned awhile back. This one is of me and my brother on Easter. I can't tell how old I am... maybe around 6? I actually like the outfit I am wearing here. Cool hat! I also like the funny expressions on our faces... my brother looks guilty and I look prissy. I feel like it sums up our personalities pretty well ;)
Also, please check out the website Handmade Help when you have a moment. Blogger Charlotte has set up the site and an Etsy Shop by the same name to help raise money to donate to Cancer Research.
Today I had some time to myself, so I decided to do a little secondhand shopping. First I went to the Salvation Army Store where I found a new work skirt for $3. (yay!) Then I went to the vintage store Cafe Society in Brookline. There I found this lovely vintage green dress. I think it is from the 60's, but I am not positive. Its pretty dressy, so I think I can wear it to one of the weddings I am going to this fall (the wedding marathon starts next weekend). Please excuse the awful photo and my messy room in the background!
I can't stop making new outfits on Polyvore! Its so addictive. Anyways, my best friend Lauren asked me to make her a set that was "cute, yet business casual to wear to work." Below are my ideas for her. Since she lives in LA, she doesn't really need to take the coming cold weather into account.
I found this skirt on sale at Old Navy today. Its a bit summery, but I felt like it would be easy to "winterize", so I could not pass it up. Let me know what you think or if you have any other good ideas for making it cold weather appropriate!
I am really sad that the summer is drawing to an end. I love fall, but I HATE winter, and with the end of the summer comes the knowledge that winter is right around the corner. Luckily, we had amazing weather this weekend. We weren't really up to much, but we did take time to walk around the Arnold Arboretum and Larz Anderson Park. This picture is taken on the beautiful grounds of Larz Anderson.
