This weekend was phenomenal despite the fact that I was in rather excruciating pain, at least on Monday. I had a pain in the neck and even 800 mg ibuprofen wasn't cutting it. There was a huge sale at thrift town on Sunday and we were extremely successful. There is one particular orange vintage dress I am rather excited about. Last night I drank a bit of Finlaggan to dull the pain and sure enough today the pain is a bit more tolerable.  I would recommend it if you are a snobby Scotch drinker on a budget. They actually get their whiskey from the excess production of two of Islay's best distilleries (Lagavulin and Caol Ila).
shorts: old urban outfitters, shoes: crimson and clover, shirt: vintage
I am finally posting one of my recent acquisitions, this lovely purple butterfly blouse. I got this, among other amazingness, Saturday night when I got a huge free bag of clothes from someone whose rejects were actually better than some of the stuff in my closet. I ended up changing the shorts later as they are so annoyingly bunchy.
I took Bea to our favorite park today and we had such a great time. Much of the time we were just blowing bubbles although we did make a sand castle which she took much delight in destroying. I just love watching her play. She is such a daredevil but also cautious, thank goodness.
chucks: goodwill, top: thrift town, shorts: secondhand
This photo is from our daily walk. I got this adorable gingham shirt with daisies at the thrift town sale last weekend. "5, 6, pick up sticks!"

shorts: crimson and clover
I wanted to take a pic of Bea's awesome interplanetary leggings before she went to bed and she was such an amazing model (probably because she knew  that once the shoot was over it was bedtime.) I have the best little girl!


  1. Lovely outfit, I love that top!!

  2. I love Beax leggings... I would totally wear them. Sometimes, I look at 5 year olds outfits because im like "i would totally wear that" LOL.

    ps. I'll have to look into that whisky. I have a few friends who are total whisky snobs. Sounds like a great remedy.

  3. First of all I love your outfit, especially the top! Second-- I can't get over how adorable your daughter is. SO precious.

  4. Very nice outfit and cute child :)

    And her space leggings are so gorgeous! I need a pair, too, haha ;)

  12. Thanks for following me, Lisa! Bea's hair looks exactly like the haircut I had when I was around her age (I think you commented on that picture on Facebook, as a matter of fact!)
