Lemon Out!

In this Outfit:
Top: ModCloth (find it here)
Shorts: Vintage/Avalon ($10)
Necklace: Vintage/Avalon ($15)
Loafers: Thrifted ($5)

Three new favorites, all at once. I had astoundingly good luck at Avalon this weekend, a rare occurrence. Chris works nearby, so I'll usually pop in on a Saturday or Sunday (and sometimes both) before he gets out to browse around, I usually leave empty handed but this time I found quite a few actual vintage pieces (and one really great oxford shirt). Among my treasures were these suede shorts and this copper necklace. I'm a huge fan of copper jewelry lately, and I'm so glad Chris talked me in to purchasing this necklace, this is something I can see myself wearing for a long time. Same with these shorts, I can't believe I was actually thinking of seasonal transition when I bought these, I mean it's not even summer officially yet, but I guess that's a drawback of working in the retail industry: when one season is starting, you're already seeing previews of the season to come. Also, lemon shirt. Couldn't resist.

This turned out to be one of my favorite outfits lately, I felt like a cross between the Babysitters Club and a 90's artsy mom. Actually the term "Artsy Mom" is what I find myself thinking about a lot of my outfits lately. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing...

(side note: This is a bad thing...after Google image searching the term "Artsy Mom", I think I need to stop thinking this way...not good, not good...)

Also, as a side note to my side note, thank you to those of you who left comments in yesterday's post, I love reading about all the things making you happy at the moment!
