Can't take a good day without a bad one...

4-6-10

- 70s lace camisole
- vintage Lee jeans
- vintage belt
- 80s flats
- John Romain satchel
- listening to: Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine "Better Version of Me"

Things are cah-razy around here these days. We're enjoying some beautiful, warm spring weather. Along with the return of sunshine is the return of our house renovations. Oh, if you could only see the mess that is our backyard right now! We're having new windows installed, insulation added and a brand spanking new back door put in. The joys of having a door that we don't have to stuff kitchen towels around to stop the draft! I can hardly contain myself. :)

So... the backyard is all scaffolding and piles of lumber and windows stacked one on top of another. And anyone who's ever fixed up an old house knows with every board removed comes a new mystery. Termite damage! Rotten framing! Old rain damage! Oh boy!

Not to worry. Things around the blog and shop shouldn't change a bit. I have this week's Etsy items already photographed and ready to go. I'll try to keep up with the outfit photos too. These days do make for some casual outfits like today's. These vintage Lee jeans have quickly become a favorite thing to wear.

Wow, so inspiring to see vintage jeans that are the perfect length and look so lovely. I know now that I must continue on my own jean journey. The blouse is amazing, and the photos fantastic.

I love the casual look of this outfit. Even more, I love how spring has brought on this casualness from so many people. It's much lovelier to be wearing things that are light and airy than to be having to throw on layer upon layer for the cold, in my opinion. :]

anne said...

so, so cute! just love this look :D

Meggstatus said...

Oh my gosh Jennifer, I don't think these jeans could fit you any better than this. I have been looking for the perfect pair of vintage jeans for a while and have yet to come across a pair as amazing as these. You are a very lucky girl, these jeans were made for you!

Midwest Mayhem said...

I love your style! This outfit is great.

Leproust Vintage said...

Those are the most perfect jeans!!

Good luck with the home renovations...with all of the maintenance hassle that old homes are, they are completely worth it in regards to the charm and character!

Morgan said...

Your hair looks so great up like that! And I'm a big fan of that bag. Great pics!

esme and the lane way said...

I love your casual looks, too :)

And I absolutely cannot wait to hear more about the house renos, if you do share! I love older houses and am completely romantic about things like termite damage – it just adds to the charm, for me! My house is only late 60s, but the wood here has seen some life, clearly..! :)

katie f said...

i love this look of jeans and some leather pointed toe shoes. its all over budapest right now and gets me right in the mood for spring. can't wait to see your house when it's finished! what a project!

sallyannie☆ said...

Your legs look amazingly long, and what a cool setting! :D

You look soooo pretty in these photos!!! :) Love the vintage cami!

Anonymous said...

I have to say that I LOVE that you noted "80's" shoes, not vintage. PEOPLE- the 80's and especially the 90's are not vintage! Take a note from Ms. Sally Jane Vintage!

the giraffe said...
