BASEBALL SHIRT


IMG_2552IMG_2568IMG_2554IMG_2542IMG_2560mashup1IMG_2568IMG_2556
Shirt – Forever 21
Shorts – DIY cut offs
Shades – Bang On
Shoes – Gojane.com

Just a super casual Sunday outfit.  Wasn’t really doing too much on the day I took these (other than commuting back from the US and unpacking from the weekend).  I had been off on a camping trip and this baseball top was the only clean one left by the end of the weekend. This hairdo is what I call the post-camp bun.  Certinaly not my most glamorous look, haha.

 Skirt - Off the Wall (very old)
Tank - H&M
Bag - Michael Kors 

Well, the time has come.  I’m 25.  It doesn't actually feel any different but it sure is weird to think that I’ve hit my official mid twenties.  

The boyfriend got me this beautiful Michael Kors bag (which definitely helped with the “I’m getting old blues”).  I think he did an awesome job picking it out! I am SUCH a picky person so he was really taking a gamble buying me a purse but he passed with flying colours!!

Dress - H&M (ages ago)
Bag - Vintage
 
It does look like leather, but it's not.  I love the edgy look it gives though.  It's definitely a little (or a lot) short for my liking and I usually only wear it with leggings in the fall/winter but I was really feeling the overalls today.

MINI APPLE PIES


IMG_23401

For years, my mom has been making mini pizzas using these ready to bake pastry you can buy from the grocery store.  The thought of those inspired me to try out a dessert version.  They turned out perfectly and took NO time at all.  They would be great as something to throw together in a snap for unexpected guests or for an easy dessert for someone who isn't a baker.  
 
They were as easy to make as the pictures show.  Just brown sugar, cinnamon and an apple slice in the center - roll it up - sprinkle with more sugar and cinnamon and bake according to the instructions of the pastry! YUM!

Skirt – H&M
Purse – Vintage
Bracelet and rings – random vendors in Mexico
Necklace – REALLY old

I totally forgot that I had bought this skirt at the beginning of the summer (it was buried in my closet!).  I figured I’d better wear it now or I may have to wait until next summer as fall is coming fast! Hopefully I will still like it by next summer so I can get more than one wear out of it!

NOT ME

As you may be able to tell, this is not me! Meet my little sister Katlyn.  Yes, younger sister (everyone is always telling us that I look younger but in fact - she is almost 2 years younger).   

I believe this outfit is entirely vintage.  She is a fellow vintage queen! 90% of her closet is vintage.  Both of us love the trill of the hunt and have an eye for a good vintage piece.  Luckily, we also both also inherited our mothers knack for sewing so we often will alter / redesign vintage clothes we rescue from our favourite thrift shops.   

If your not currently a vintage shopper, you should really try it! Thrift stores are full of really cool items (and a lot of ugly ones, too) that are looking for a good home.  It's always exciting to find a gem among all the junk.
