Fish Bones--

Overall I liked this outfit. I wish I wasn't so self aware about my wide upper arms because then I could wear sleeveless without worry. I always wear a cardi to cover my upper arms and lately it's just so hot and I really rather just be sleeveless. In the lower pictures I'm standing in my office that has quickly become overflowing with vintage finds that I sell on etsy. I am in the process of redoing this space. I get very moody when I feel disorganized and it seems we are pushing at the seams of this house.

I was so excited a few weeks back when I checked the mail and this little package was there. Even more excited when I opened the package and seen how cute it was wrapped. This etsy store pays attention to detail and I love that. I ordered a vintage fish bone necklace that I thought was different and would work well with my wardrobe. If your interested check out they have lots of cute vintage things.

Check out the receipt above. For 4 kids back to school supplies. I mean there were a few grocery items in there but overall this is what I had to pay for just what they needed for back to school. I just hate those back to school supply list ! Whatever happened to a pad of paper, box of crayons and a few pencils?


  1. You look fantastic, so nice to see your face again!

  2. I love your colors, and especially your shoes! I feel the same way about my arms, and also my stomach. It is so hot here in South Florida it is really hard to wear something else.

    Etsy is my downfall. Especially since i am an insomniac and get up and order things!

    I know what you are talking about with school supplies, but as a teacher, we really do appreciate supplies because the school board gives us NOTHING. Because of that I usually go overboard.I am on leave this year, but I have already spent too much.

    I do get my 8 yr olds clothes on Ebay (great for Gymbo clothes really cheap)

    My school supplies go-to is Target.

  3. Ps. i totally agree with you about Lord of the Flies and I am begining to think F. Scott may not be the classic to choose, no one has anything good to say. I have read both your recommendations--loved them both. Guess great minds think alike lol

  4. I love that long drapey sweater! I've been looking for one like that!


  5. Oh, nice post.)) Love your blog!!!.))))))

    I need your help ... Soon I am flying to Greece and I will have a two-day shopping in Athens .. You were there ever? If yes, what places you advise?

  6. I'm so crazy about that necklace. I guess having to pay that much just to send kids to schools is a good enough reason to thrift shop. Thanks for linking up this week!

  7. Hello!! It's nice to be back and see old faces for sure and one of them being yours! I hope you are doing well!

  8. I know, I hate the school supply lists too! Our sales tax in Tn is 9.25%. So every August (just one weekend though), before the school starts we have a tax free shopping weekend for school supplies and kids clothing. It's not much but every little bit helps!
    Your shoes and the necklace are so cute!
