earrings - handmade by Carie, won in Pretty Little Mountains giveaway / blouse - Target / ring - Nasty Gal / overdyed skinnies - Zara / sandals - Target, thrifted
I hope you all like my jewelry in these photos, because you will definitely be seeing a lot more of it. Both these incredible earrings (designed and made by Carie of Pretty Little Mountains) and this giant ring were waiting for me in the mail when we got back from Europe, and they both just make me feel so, well, badass, that I haven't stopped wearing them since. I can't wait until Carie opens an etsy shop to sell her jewelry, because I am absolutely in love with these earrings and can't wait to see more of her designs.
Also worn on repeat was the rest of this outfit, first for an excellent dinner out with my parents and then for a day spent rummaging through all the stuff we've been storing in their basement. I love how a slightly oversized blouse can transition so seamlessly from feeling 'dressed up' to completely casual, and I can tell this one I picked up while running errands is going to fast become a staple in my wardrobe.
Unfortunately my rummaging wasn't quite as successful as my impromptu shopping trip - I've been obsessed for months with digging up a pair of vintage Dansko sandals my high school boyfriend's mom gave me, but I'm afraid they must have been donated in one of my mothers great semi-annual closet purges sometime in the last decade. Now I'm on the lookout for the perfect pair of '70s style sandals - cognac leather (natch'), low platform with a bit of a heel (but nothing crazy), open toe and an ankle strap - any great recommendations? (These Swedish Hasbeens are, sadly, way out of my budget.)
