Abandoned Houses


Well hello there! It's been quite some time since my last post to you, five days, if you're counting. I hope that every last one of you had a wonderful new year. Did you get to watch the ball drop? I didn't.

Today has felt very much like a Sunday. It's been a rather lazy one, too. Except for the fact that I was up at the crack of dawn. I never do that on weekends. But hey, you might as well seize the day with what sunlight short winter days gives us, right?While thinking of a nice place to have an outfit shoot, I remembered this old abandoned house down the road from mine. I'm pretty sure that it actually belongs to a relative of mine, which makes me not feel too terribly bad for marching myself into it.

I love the seriousness of my face in this one.

I also found two Adorable vintage purses inside of an old closet. Unlike everything else left in the house, they were in very good condition. I couldn't help but snatch them up. No one's lived in the house for at least twenty years...I'm pretty sure they will not be missed.

Once again I love every single piece in your outfit and am totally blown away at how you pulled them all together in perfect harmony. I especially love the owl pendant and the bee ring, so cute. :)

Look forward to hearing from you
