Nautical Polka Dotical

Found these shoes yesterday at ValueWorld for $2.50!!  They're comfortable and so stinkin cute.

I love the details in apparel, crafts, housewares and so much more so when I stumbled upon this skirt I thought at first glance that it was just a navy skirt, but upon closer inspection I saw that each button had an anchor molded into it.  Therefore, I had to have the skirt.  It was a perfect fit, too.  

Today's pictures were a joy to take because it was a solid 67 degrees outside.  I honestly didn't want to leave White Rock Lake and everyone else had the same idea because it was packed.  Unfortunately, being in a higher populated area lowers my comfort level so I felt somewhat self-conscious taking these pictures.  White Rock is the hot spot for bike riders and as they were whizzing by me, I felt like they were staring, but brushed off my concern as paranoia until one yelled, "SMILE!!" Instead of freaking me out, I just started laughing.  

It has been a great week of having some time off, but I'm definitely ready to get back into the swing of school and work.  But wait, I spoke too soon.  Austin and I are headed to Austin, TX tomorrow for a quick anniversary trip.  I'm so very excited because although we lived twenty mins away from Austin during our dating/engagement and first few months of marriage, we rarely went to Austin for fun.  

I've been mulling over the thought of possibly selling some of the vintage pieces I've collected over the last few years on Etsy considering they are great pieces, but just don't fit me perfectly.  A lot of times I buy items that I absolutely love even if they don't fit perfectly which is a problem, but if they can fit someone else perfectly, I'll be a happy gal.  So look forward to the possibility of that soon.

The color of your top goes beautifully with the navy skirt. I love it! Oh, man! How I long for 67 degrees. It's about a steady thirty here. Oh, winter! I think you should definitely go for an etsy store. Most of the best selling vintage shops on etsy are simply people up selling things they've thrifted. It's a good business.
