Sunday Find ~ Floppy Hat

Monday, October 24, 2011

I was happy to arrive back in Venice Beach to a much cooler weather forecast.
We spent a lovely (and warm!) weekend away with friends and family near San Francisco. But it felt a little more like a summer getaway than a festive, fall celebration. Loving a reason to pull out tights and this fabulous floppy hat I found for a steal.
While out shopping recently,  I found a pricier version that had me damning our adult responsibilities (You know, little things like rent and feeding the child...) when the hubs said in a very nonchalant way, "Babe, can't you find something even cooler for really cheap at a thrift store?"

And... my work here is done. 
Velvet Blazer - Vintage 70's (it was my mother's) that I had tailored, Striped Dress & Necklace - (unknown labels) via clothing exchange, (See how to host a clothing exchange), Checkered Shirt - Forever 21,  Booties - Ash

P.S. ~ Happy Birthday to the best guy I've ever known.
