peppermint wind

"there is a place where the sidewalk ends and before the street begins, and there the grass grows soft and white, and there the sun burns crimson bright, and there the moon-bird rests from his flight to cool in the peppermint wind."

skirt, shirt, & purse: thrifted! shoes: my mother's from the 70's

on days when the heat is unbearable, we just snap a few photos quickly in the field next to our home.
i am fairly certain that our neighbors think we are crazy.
ps: this whole outfit was under $10.

  8. When I used to take pictures in my backyard, all of my neighbors would stare at me in complete wonder... It was quite embarassing and I'm glad I now go to the local nature center to take pictures!

    You look so lovely, even in the heat, Gee.

  12. Yes for cropped shirts that tie at the waist! And yellow and black is one of my favorite combinations by far. Your mama has some good taste in shoes as well! I would give anything for that amazing black clutch. I have such a thing for vintage purses and that one is so dreamy. Have a wonderful Monday!! xx

  26. Aw, Shel is one of my favorites!! I am blown away how you got that outfit for under $10. You always find the most darling pieces. The tied shirt is the cutest!!

    I've been getting back into thrifting again as my clothing budget will be cut in half since I will not be working now after we move. It's definitely a lot more fun...but I do wish I could take you along with me:) You have such a keen eye for it.

    Oh and yes, we should totally Skype. No worries...I'm known for lounging around the house in sweats and a slouchy hat:) Have a lovely week darling!!
