L I F E S T Y L E: My Week in Instagram

Things have been pretty hectic lately so I thought I'd do another Instagram post. This week has been filled with meetings in coffee shops, baking cupcakes for birthday parties, and late nights drinking wine by the river (which results in me tripping over the brick sidewalks and busting my knee).

The highlights of the week though has been the trip to a local flea market where I found some cool items. I'm an obsessive owl, book and jewelry collector so I picked up some while out there. I also came across a vintage Coach bag which I snagged for five bucks, which I later found out runs for around two hundred. I've also been picking up pieces to start up an Etsy shop with a friend of mine. So far we have some beautiful pieces that I think will go to a good home.

Yesterday I also had a photo shoot where I was in front of the camera instead of my usual spot behind the camera. The talented duo Tom and Keidi asked to take my picture in a beautiful cherry field. I'm really excited about the results although I know I made an awkward model because I usually just stand in place with a blank expression wondering what to do.

(H&M shoes and shirt, Thrifted skirt, Daisy by Marc Jacobs tote bag, Forever 21 belt.)

I can't believe that I've managed to blog TWICE in only one month. The blogging Gods have spoken and I just may be more frequent with my posts now. Thank the Lord.

This blog post probably wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't watched Clothes Encounters for twelve hours last week. I only say that because I picked up some tips on better thrifting thus helping me find better pieces for my wardrobe after successfully selling 3/4 of my closet last week. So thank you ladies, or now just one lady, from Clothes Encounters, you helped me actually find some cute things while thrifting for once in my life.

Obviously this outfit is inspired by Marc Jacobs, who by the way has really disappointed me with his last collection. Once I picked up this skirt at the local Salvation Army I just knew it was meant to be with my peter pan collar shirt which I've had for months but never got around to wearing. I also knew it belonged with my trusty tote by Marc Jacobs.

Here's to hoping that I continue to update my blog on a weekly, possibly daily, basis. Thanks again for sticking around to those of you who read this when I actually post.

(Mod Dolly dress, Daisy by Marc Jacobs bag, Forever 21 belt, H&M shoes.)

I've been dying to show you guys this dress from Mod Dolly, which I had conveniently found on the Chictopia website, but when I bought it back in March it was too cold to wear. Normally I would have thrown on a pair of tights and leather jacket, but for some reason my trusty leather jacket doesn't look right with it. Anyways, when I bought this I was really impressed by the selection in this shop, the extremely fast shipping and super sweet helpful owner who also happens to be a blogger. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying from this shop again very soon.

This Daisy by Marc Jacobs tote actually came along as a "gift" with the perfume, which is my favorite. You can't really tell, but woven into the bag are gold threads to give it a bit of a sparkle. It's a summer staple for me now.

I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately, it's been to hectic, but I say that every time. So I will just try to promise again to post more outfit pictures in the future. This Sunday I will be going to visit some friends in Philly so I can guarantee that I will have a post about that next week.

I hope you're all well and thank you for still "following" my blog!
