Here's a random outfit from last week.  I tried to take pictures and got frustrated.  So these are the only two that turned out.  It's too bad because I really liked the outfit.  However, I ended up changing my shirt to the striped one from UO to go out.  I got rained on in the Mississippi shirt.

Shirt & Belt : Thrifted (belt is my husband's), Skirt : H&M, Shoes (which you can't see) : Chacos, Glasses : Warby Parker

Hello!  We are finally getting settled into our new place!  It feels like home now.  We love it so much.  I thought that the balcony was going to be a good spot to get photos, but it doesn't really get enough sun during the day.  Maybe it would be better earlier in the morning.  So that's why these are inside.  Which I kind of like because of the white walls.  Well I say white.  They are more of a natural color I guess.

So we are getting ourselves ready for our anniversary trip to Greece!  We leave on Wednesday!!  It totally snuck up on me.  I just can't believe it's so close!  It doesn't feel real.

But it's real!  We are really leaving for 3 weeks on Wednesday!!  So crazy.  It's going to be a great, relaxing trip.  That's why I'm particularly glad we are settled in our new place.  That way we will have a home to come home to that feels cozy.

Sail Away

Picked up this little number in Chicago over the weekend at H&M.  Thought it would be perfect for our upcoming Greece adventure.

Belt is from UO and the shoes are from Target.  We're getting settled into our new place.  That's where these pictures are taken.  I feel like I can get better shots out here.  So I tried playing with my camera a little.

Hope you guys are having a great Thursday!  I'm enjoying some iced coffee and the ceiling fan in the new place right now!

So this is a lot late.  I meant to post this a LONG time ago.  This was a Christmas present I made.  See I told you it's a lot late.

When I was helping my brother move to Chicago last summer (crazy that he's almost been there a year!), his gf had this broken bowl on the front porch.  I asked a couple of times if I should throw it away.  She told me that she really wanted to try to fix it.  It was in a million pieces.  Apparently it was a bowl from her childhood and it had special meaning to her.  Finally, she decided that she would just keep a piece and throw the rest away.  I told her I would also keep a piece and see if I could do something with it.  So here's the piece I kept.

So I got some supplies.  Mostly the wire was the important part.  I wanted to put a hole in it, but I also didn't want to break the piece because it was the only one I had.

I did sand the edges because there was a few rough spots.  But mostly I just wrapped the wire around in an interesting way.

I thought it turned out pretty well!  It makes me want to try harder jewelry.  I think the rings I make are pretty easy.  I think it would be fun to make more interesting pieces.  Here's the necklace on me.

I had a longer chain at first, but I thought it look better on a shorter chain because it was such a large charm.  I really think she liked it!
