Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear...

a

- 50s corduroy dress
- thrifted silk polka dot blouse
- 60s may-janes
- vintage umbrella
- vintage purse
- listening to: The Beatles - Abbey Road "Here Comes the Sun"

Today started out just like the last couple of days... rainy and grey. I didn't mind a bit since I know we need the rain, even though this rain is of the tropical, warm and humid variety. To take advantage of the rainy weather, I quarantined myself in the house for the past two days for some much needed work time. Everything went well until 10:00 last night when I got so stinkin' stir crazy Tom and I had to walk to the Turkey Hill to buy ice cream just so I could get out of the house for a few minutes. Nothing beats cabin fever like a chocolate milkshake!

I was still feeling a bit trapped this morning so I decided to venture out to a few thrift store. And boy, I'm glad I did! I found a couple of 60s dresses for myself as well as a vintage chenille bedspread. I've been searching for one of those for ages. Not to worry, I didn't only score things for myself. I stocked up on some silk blouses, wool sweater and cotton dresses for the Etsy shop. By the time I got home, the sun was out and the sky was clear.

These photos are gorgeous. I love the color of your dress.

I know what you mean about this rain -- it rained pretty badly over the weekend in Georgia, and I too had to run out for some ice cream (mint Oreo Blizzard!) just to get out of the house!

I love this outfit! The polka dot blouse works so well with the dress.
I always take trips to random stores when I've been indoors for too long - a girl needs some fresh air at least once a day!!

I actually can't wait till it starts getting rainy here! I'm still in skimpy summer clothes and I long for the cozy layers of fall. Can't wait!
