back for the world to see...

Hello, all, I'm back. Sorry for my absence, I've been relaxing and not thinking about stressful things up in the peninsula of Door County!

Here are the outfits I rocked on vacation...




This adorable cherry dress is a thrift store find. It is brilliant white (I almost had a disaster - I spilled red soup all over it, being the klutz I am, but thanks to cold water and Tide-To-Go, the pristine color and condition were saved) with bright red cherries - perfect for Door County.

It was a little cool, hence the jeans, and this marvelous brown bag held everything plus a little - perfect for a vacation.

We stayed in a family cottage in Jacksonport. It is a real log cabin (no furnace or air conditioning - only a fireplace!) that has been in our family for over sixty years. It is right on Lake Michigan so you can hear the waves even when you're inside. Here are some pictures...also, there is a short video at the end of the post if you would like to see inside the cottage.



Before my trip I went to a thrift store in Waukesha that I'd never been to before (more on that later) and found these awesome bifocal glasses. They were only $.99, so I bought two pairs (only one is pictured above) and had my dad help me pop the lenses out. I love the result - so much more fun than basic black nerdy glasses - a chic tortoise shell twist.

Here is an outfit I wore last week...



I love this vintage lemon yellow blouse. This blouse was one of my finds when I ventured to the Waukesha thrift store. They were having the most amazing sale a fashionista could ever hope to find - one brown grocery bag full of clothes, shoes, and purses for only $10. Can you believe that?!?! When I went to check out, they rolled everything up so it hardly took up any room in the bag and the sales ladies were like "you can fit more things, you can fit more things!" So I kept running back to the clothes and searching for treasures. Needless to say, I found a few, and they will be featured soon.

The cherry dress is really cute and I also adore the last look.

But there was no black in the outfit you commented on - only my hair. The dress was brown so was the shírt.
