The Grass Is Not Greener On The Other Side

Yesterday my boyfriend and I went for a walk with our dog May-z. I did double takes for the entire walk because everything was vibrant and in full bloom. The day before I had just been in Vermont where it was SNOWING, yes snowing. Here is a picture my boyfriend took with his iphone (just another reason for me to get one):

Oops there's a hole in my sweater! The beautifully spring-y top is just one of my thrifted finds from my trip! Thanks for stopping by to smell the flowers with me! - Lo

My New Friend

I made a new friend yesterday as I went around thrifting with my mom. Here he is:

This is me at lunch laughing at my mom because she wasn't sure what button to push. I had an awesome hair day - high bun and wore my latest vintage find paired with a jacket from my buddy Jenna! Wish I had a better outfit picture for ya, but this will have to do! I will have to show you all my vintage finds very soon! Hope everyone has a great weekend! -Little Lo

NYC Mini Trip

On Monday I went to NYC for a little bit of a mini-trip with some family. It was a really long day of traveling and walking around, but I got to see Time Square. The last time I was in NYC I was 12, a germaphobe and couldn't fathom why my parents took me to such a dirty place. But this time I really enjoyed it and could see myself taking trips with friends every once and a while. We stopped by esprit! I looked really quickly since my Dad is not at all the type to go to malls or really any place highly populated (oh do I take after him in so many ways!) My Stepmom bought me these seafoam-y green shorts and insisted on buying me a shirt as well! How lucky is this girl?! I will have to show actual outfit pictures eventually!
Here are some polaroids of Time Square (not terribly good but it was cloudy/rainy and glad I got to document the trip):

Tomorrow and Friday are going to be filled with seeing wonderful friends, tea, thrift shopping, and lots of catching up! I really can't wait! I'm sure I will have plenty of pictures to document! I love visiting home! Thanks for stopping by! - Little Lo

Vintage Trip

On Sunday, I am very excited to see my best friend Jenna from Piper Designs. We plan to meet each other in the middle and have a little vintage shopping and some delicious coffee. Often I go thrift shopping with no real plan but decided that I would choose 5 items to look for. Here they are:

I'd love to know other lovely bloggers vintage lists. What do you look for when you're thrifting? I will be sure to share with you my precious finds. Not only will we be thrifting on this trip but I plan to take many pictures and to interview the lovely and most talented lady of Piper Designs. Busy weekend ahead, look forward to pictures and the interview! - Little Lo

My Little Outfit

I am wearing a yellow dress from American Apparel, necklace from Noble Town Vintage, T-shirt from Casualty, headband is a belt from a current vintage dress I'm re-working, and dark gray leggings from aerie.
I have a confession- it feels super strange to post outfit pictures! I am definitely out of my comfort zone. The blogs that I love have tons of outfit posts and they inspire me, but for some reason when I see myself posting my own outfit pictures it feels egotistical. Either way, I was pretty happy about my funky little outfit and thought I'd share. Thank you for stopping by! I have so much more I want to post before the weekend like sketches for clothes I can't wait to make, my re-worked Jess James Jake etsy dress, things I can't wait to buy when I go on my thrifting mini-trip, and simple somethings (my new feature) - Little Lo

Interview Outfit

Yesterday I had an interview and wanted to share with you my outfit! Unfortunately it is still fairly chilly here, rainy yesterday. Today it is kind of a different story, I can walk outside with just a cardigan on! And the interview went well, I just get way too nervous! Then I treated myself to some Starbucks afterwards, since I've been nervous for probably weeks now!
This is the dress from my dirty birdies etsy purchase but I made the hem shorter and removed the long sleeves, see the before. I also wore a Noble Town Vintage necklace, thrifted belt, and leggings from aerie. I put my hair in a small beehive, which you can't really tell in these pictures. I also wore a blue cardigan, but wanted to show you my dress all revamped.
I recently made a new etsy purchase, which is such a cute dress, but I need to make the hem shorter! So pictures to come once that is done! Thanks for stopping in! - Little Lo

A Taste of Home: Mountain Pillows

I really wanted to get rid of some scrap fabric before I bought anymore and wanted to do a tribute to my home- Vermont! I decided to make mountain pillows and I think they came out really cute! Here they are!
Thanks for comin by! - Little Lo
