I am in exile, a sojourner, a citizen of some other place*

photos by Tom b.

dress: 50s cotton day dress
shoes: thrifted 80s flats
purse: vintage Coach
belt: thrifted
*listening to: Thrice - Beggars "In Exile"

Yesterday while Tom and I were running around town doing glamourous things like picking up a dehumidifier for our basement we stopped to take a few photos in front of his aunt and uncle's house. Wouldn't it be cute to have your own little pond right in your front yard?

As always, you look wonderful. Love the striped dress and your bag. I have one very similar that used to be my mom's and I carry it all the time. The pond is gorgeous, reminds me of the one my dad built at the house we lived in when I was a kid, except this one is much nicer and larger.

Oh what a beautiful outfit! It must still be warm where you are; there have been but a few days that I could have gotten away with an outfit like that where I live lately. :(
