Bib and Tucker

After just having sent out some very stressful emails I am ready to relax. Unfortunately relaxing at all today was impossible in these shorts. The snap is all or nothing. Have you ever realized something you are wearing is all wrong but you’re just too late because you’re already in class and people are staring at you because as you look down you realize your shorts are unzipping before everyone to see.. Inhale and question mark.. ? ding. 

Long windedness aside, these shorts need a new snap. Make sure your shit is proper when you walk out the door. Solid. Proper, solid shits. I eventually just gave up and left them unsnapped. Then I went to the beach, danced around, yelled at some seagull harassing Sinead O’Connor looking douche and came home. All so I could write this. What a blessing.

My boyfriend’s jeans, without exception, never look right on me but I cannot get enough of his shirts. Blue grey on a hazy day. I always spell grey with an e, what about you?

 I first truly started dressing the way I wanted to when I got these Frye boots. My parents always wore them, my dad for riding and my mom just being a hip chick. Years ago my mother bought them for me as a gift. They mark a certain independence for me and I am oh so pleased to share them with you.

This silk APC dress is my absolute favorite dress I have ever owned as it as understated as it is beautiful. My hosiery is from Givenchy. I picked these orange, tapered lovelies up at the thrift store for $1.
They have a bit of a sparkle to them and came not only with instructions to obtain “the true parisian fit”, but the most charming illustrations to demonstrate.
Well, I followed the instructions to a tee and the result? They look like they were sprayed on. That and they make my legs look like the best possible version of my legs. Best possible dollar of my life. I can’t say I looked as graceful as seen in the instructions, but something of quality should take longer to put on, just as it takes longer to make. However, in a world generating more and more excess every day, I’m not surprised that most tights have come to fit so pitifully.

 I got this dress from Savers, I believe, quite some time ago. Those chain thrift stores are so strange because they feel so individual until you go to another and realize they are exactly the same. Like Unique thrift.  CC’d. Either way they are oh so dear to me. 
 This vintage College Town of Boston dress is a dress that I am very grateful to own, especially because it is their lovely plaid. Oooooh, plaid. It is one of those dresses that have the perfect belt in the perfect spot which is hard to hit and easy to miss! I’ve wanted to wear it for so long and refrained, but it’s time to get studious. I’ve got a lot of work to do and would like to share it with you very soon!
 It is getting undeniably festive despite the not so subtle fluctuations in the weather. I certainly wouldn’t say I’m jumping the gun in watching The Snowman. I can’t remember the last Christmas I haven’t looked over at my mom sobbing away. What do you watch annually? Very rarely do I enjoy a film more than the book, however..

I love finding new places to go with my dog and this historic park was quite a find!  There is, however, something a bit strange about it. Rabbits and herons allow you to walk within a foot of them. I’ve never experienced anything like it. Also, they have bags to encourage curbing your dog, but no garbages. I felt obligated to bring it back with me. What’s going on here?

The days of bare skin are gone and I look about as conservative as Ms. Clavel. I was pleased with what I was wearing today until my professor asked me “what’s with the costume?” This dress is from a sportswear line! Come on.
It’s funny when you wear shoes with designs you aren’t familiar with. Sometimes I don’t even recognize my own feet. This much I will say, women of the Victorian era must have needed a comfortable shoe having to wear all sorts of corsets, hoop skirts, and bustles. Shit, I feel inconvenienced having to wear underwear. Did you know that corsets where originally set with whale baleen? Lovely. I’m content with some gold turtles on my belt and I was actually made to feel pretty ostentatious.

A hop, a jump and a whirl. I was bouncing all over the place in this skirt, not because I thought it would be dreamy if I were spinning around in a driveway, but because it is oh so fun!

I hope you’ve had a wildly fantastic Thanksgiving! I don’t have much to be thankful for right now considering all this holiday has meant was piling me up with work! That may sound like I feel the world is against me, but that’s how it feels sometimes, no? I really am only kidding though being as every day I slowly lose control.. of the world.
I’ve always loved saving feathers from all sorts of birds, both wild and my own. These were collected from some ferocious turkeys a few months ago. I do hope they are alright considering Thanksgiving has just passed! Saving my birds’ feathers has always been the most tangible and special way of remembering my pets. 
This Thanksgiving I put on my best pilgrim outfit. I have pilgrim shoes. What else could I have done? Short of carrying around a cornucopia I think I looked pretty festive. They put a little puritanism in my step.
