today’s outfit…


Today is for running errands and then hopefully I will be able to avoid all commerce next week. I really hate to be out in the crowds, and would rather be home watching Home Alone and eating treats!

I got this shirt from Ruche last spring and today Brian told me it looks a little Angela Lansbury. You know what? I’m cool with that because she was a detective and I was probably the only middle-schooler addicted to Murder She Wrote. Maybe not. I wouldn’t know because I totally kept it a secret back then. Being a detective was dream job #2 (after a pilot), but now that I’m a grown up and afraid of getting murdered, I’m glad I didn’t follow that path.

jeans: F21
boots: Borne- via Last Chance
bird brooch: Etsy shop Lucie Ellen
bag: vintage from Wanderlust

When we were in Oregon last month, we had a couple of hours to spend in Portland before our flight. We used it to go check out the lovely ladies from Lodekka and Wanderlust- mobile vintage shops in a double decker bus and trailer. Erin and Vanessa are so sweet and their shops are adorable! I didn’t have much room in my suitcase but I couldn’t leave empty handed so I picked up the vintage leather bag in today’s outfit. If you live in Portland or are visiting, definitely check these shops out!

    i love ‘murder, she wrote’!!! even though every time it was on my dad would mumble about how dangerous it was to invite “that woman” {jessica fletcher} to a dinner party i always admired how independant and classy she was. and she had some seriously awesome style!
