Remember that new vintage sweater I mentioned earlier in the week? Well, here she is. Isn't she awesome? I've been searching for a sweater exactly like this for some time now and I mentioned it to the owner of our local vintage shop and she said she had something like that at the seamstress. So, I asked her to hold it for me, and once I saw it, I took it on the spot. I didn't even try it on. It's perfect! So, I immediately styled it up and set this outfit aside for today. And I'll be honest - I'm totally going to wear it tomorrow, too. But instead of shorts, a skirt - and instead of a turtleneck, a deep V tee or maybe an oxford.
The tights were actually much darker than they photographed. But, now they're in the garbage, because I ripped a hole in the back of them - most likely on a kitchen chair this morning. It's the first pair of tights I've ruined in a long, long time, so I can't be too upset about it.
I got a lot of inquiries about this painting yesterday, and I think it deserves its own post. So, check back this weekend for the full scoop.
Once again, it was way cold today. So, indoor pictures it is. Although, funny story - I got up the this morning and immediately went for a run. I had to go someplace and just figured I'd run there. I knew it was cold, but I was thinking it was in the 20's. Well ... it wasn't until I got home and was perusing Facebook over breakfast that I noticed a weather related status message from a local friend. I couldn't believe what it said, but after confirming the status with weather.com, I realized that it was actually only 10*F, but "felt like" -3*. Oops ... that explained the fiery red of my skin when I got home. But ... I survived!
