The first week back to work after vacation is always the worst...I think it's scientifically proven at this point. I had such a fantastic time with Amanda, Michael and Collin in Florida, and I'm definitely sad to be back. To ease myself back into work I've been exploring Downtown Aiken, and I keep stumbling upon such pretty spots. I think I appreciate flowers and greenery so much, because I absolutely cannot keep anything alive. I'm pretty sure I have a black thumb. Hydrangeas remind me of visiting my Grandma in Tennessee so whenever I see them I always smile.
I love being able to work vintage items into my outfits even if they aren't the key pieces. Especially, when the vintage has been gifted too me. Both of the brooch and the purse were given to me from my mama so they'll always be extra special. They also complement the feminine details in this Pigtails and Pirates dress. This is my second dress from Pigtails and Pirates (first post here), and I decided to go with something that looks sweet since my MARVELous dress is definitely loud and bold.
