details.

how was your weekend? mine was really nice! on saturday i had lunch with chris's family, did some manual labor here on the old farm, and thought about making some alterations to some vintage skirts, but didn't. then on sunday chris and i did a lot of eating and riding around and thoroughly enjoyed it! sometimes it's nice not to have a plan or obligations.

uhhhmmmmm, i'm not entirely sure why i didn't do regular pictures for an outfit post, but it must have been because i was most interested in showing you my necklace and bag! when i got dressed on sunday afternoon, i decided i needed a bold necklace with color... but i didn't have one. so i made this one with vintage chains and enameled discs, and i'm really happy with the way it turned out, because my outfit needed a little color.

i've been wanting to show you this bag forever because it's one of my favorite thrifting finds. it holds my wallet, phone, collection of lip balms, change of clothes, a pair of boots, and a small child or two, which is exactly what i look for in a bag! $4 spent, and i made it mine.

  4. i like that you mixed it up! sometimes when we do outfit posts the details get hidden by the overall pictures and the details are sometimes the greatest parts of an outfit, your necklace being one of them!

  5. Lovely necklace! The colour of the disks is really pretty.

    I had a nice relaxed weekend. The first one I've had off in a while. I went to a gig, drank a lot, checked out a local antique dealers, spent some nice time with the boy.
