just like everyone, in my denim.

navy cardigan - vintage thrifted
ruffle top - bitten {from when steve&barry's was going out of business}
skirt - giveaway win from dry vintage+thrift & blythe hill
new heels!! - c/o justfabulous via ifbconference
socks - christmas present from my cousin

bracelets - were my momma's
necklace - thrifted/from grandpa

ring - painted by my sweet dad

i probably should have titled this post "lucky" or something...

this is one of the two skirts i won from dry vintage&thrift on blythe's blog
and i've been wearing them non-stop! i never win giveaways,
so it was so exciting to get a couple additions to my wardrobe without spending money!

PLUS we were given a gift card for a free pair of shoes from at the ifbconference.
so these are the ones i picked! for being as tall as they are, they're incredibly comfortable.
{i always have issues with heels because my arches are so bad... but i can't convince myself to not wear them.}
but if you're into heels... they're having a 2 pair for $39.95 sale. and free shipping.
not too bad for non-thrifted shoes, right?

have a great wednesday. xo.

the sunday extra {7}

do you ever just have those days when you are just so down?
that pretty much sums up yesterday for me. i don't know if my hormones are just out of whack
or if i've just been experiencing a bout of depression/anxiety.
for a few years i had bad panic attacks
but it had been almost two years since my last one until yesterday.
worst feeling in the world.

sometimes i forget that i need to surrender my worries to God.
because during the times that i do, i don't struggle with these lows.
but i haven't been surrendering lately.
so i spent the night talking with my sweet Savior.
and what'd ya know... today is a new day.
and i'm feeling fine. :) He restores my soul.

Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:21-23

some film shots.

a few shots from the past few weeks off my 35mm {i finally got that roll developed}
some with miss joanna when we were getting on the train.
and a few from the photoshoot of the girls.
i try to snag a few shots on film just because i love the feel.
but it's a little too expensive to take only film photos all the time.

have a great weekend! xo.

i got stripes, stripes around my shoulders.

36.5 blouse & mystique skirt - madness {nyc}
nature breeze platforms - some shop near chinatown
tights - wal-mart
socks - vintage thrifted

most of the goodies i'm wearing were items i bought while in nyc.
this is probably the most expensive outfit i've ever worn
besides my prom dress and cross-country uniform.

{it cost a total of $68!... most of my outfits cost between $10-$20}

this blouse is easily my favorite that i own now.
i've worn it three times in the past week! {without washing.... oops}

hope you've had a great ash wednesday!

hope you're taking some time to enjoy yourself this week :)

a little late.

took these photos last week to post before valentine's day
but they never ended up making it to the blog.
i decided that i like the little tin too much to not post.
so here is a lovey-pink post a few days late :)

shirt, shorts, shoes, & tin - vintage thrifted
tights - ?

happy valentine's day!

red blouse - vintage thrifted
braided belt - vintage thrifted
vintage levi's - from a teacher, she wore them back in the 70's.
faux fur collar - h&m, thrifted
red heels - vintage thrifted

the necklace is a gift my mom & dad gave to me when i was little.
i remember fighting with one of my brother's friends because they were in my room trying to steal my stuff
{they liked to pretend they were robbers}
and i got so mad because they were stealing my favorite necklace
so i grabbed it out of his hand and then he grabbed the chain and broke it.
{there is only a little bit of chain left on each side of the 'envelope'}
it still hasn't been fixed after all these years!
but it's still one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

here are a couple photos from when the girls & i were out being crazy:

happy valentine's day, sweet things!
