I adore the mixes which come together over time. Take this outfit - the white jeans and utility boots are recent purchases, but the chunky sweater is my old favorite from 7 or 8 years ago. I added my most favorite vintage clip-ons ($5 find) and a vintage carpet bag ($9 find) - and voila, a cozy, casually chic, trendy outfit (I at this point truly enjoy some current trends!), with a bit of whimsy and its own strong character.
I realized that we forgot to photograph the carpet bag up close, but luckily I had photos from a couple of months ago when I just bought it at my favorite antique mall. I have no idea who was the maker or even what era it is from, but I instantly fell for its wonderful colors and textures! It's in good condition, smells a bit musty, but other than that, no problems. 1970s perhaps? What do you think?
Not too many things on my mind now. We enjoyed a long walk at the Soundview trail with my parents, followed by tasty dinner and a festive holiday light display, with which Justin surprised us after all. I work on one of my sites and my art/sketches/photo/writing blog and find so many written pieces I forgot about - it's weird how it happens. Feeling rather peaceful these days. Hope you too are happy and content.
