Summer Favorites: Camping

I love being able to turn off the computer, turn off the phone and take to the woods for a while every summer. When you’re camping, you have no choice but to be present in every moment. Whether you’re fishing, making s’mores or singing songs around a fire, a few days in the wild will do your soul some good. Be sure to accessorize accordingly.

The Big 3-0 is Coming

It’s true. In a few short days, I will be thirty. THIRTY. I’m pretty much fine with it, since I feel like I’m about twelve. I just hate that OTHER people think thirty is old and that I should be settled by now. (They obviously haven’t heard - thirty is the new fifteen.) No matter what I think about the whole thing - it is a benchmark. Benchmarks are supposed to be celebrated with pretty clothes, right? I found these three stunners from Planetclairevintage - and any one of them will fit the birthday outfit requirement perfectly. Hint.

Neusteters Dress from NodtoModvintage

The other night, I stumbled across this amazing 1950s Neusteters dress in NodtoModvintage’s Etsy shop. I hemmed and hawed, but ultimately - I could not bear the thought of someone else snatching this dress up! It now belongs to me and it is as fabulous in person as it is in pictures. I can’t wait to wear it to a summer wedding.

SNO-MG!

Mother Nature really laid into us here in Wisconsin last night. This was a blizzard of epic proportions - complete with 24 inches of snow. What better way to deal with hibernation than to make a treasury?

Santa was feeling awfully old-school this year and I am just loving it! I got so many great, vintage things for my little haus. Merry Christmas, indeed.

Evidence of a successful Christmas comes in the form of a giant mess.
