I can't believe summer is almost over.  Living in Oregon, everyone embraces summer because it's gone in a wink and then we're back to gray skies and rain.  Although I don't mind that too much either. ;)

The last couple of weeks, my son has been attending a day camp at one of the local parks.  It's the first time that he's ever been left alone with adults and kids he doesn't know.  I think it was good for him and for me.  We've been together literally every day since he was born.  

I think as a mom it can be hard to watch your kids grow up and become more independent.  It really makes me cherish these times with him because the time we spend together will gradually become less and less as he grows up.  It's a bittersweet time.  I'm glad to say he had so much fun though!  Here he is showing off his superhero costume that he made while at camp. :)

Anyway, my outfit is quite simple and perfect for just wearing around town.  The last time I wore this vintage baby doll top was in this post here and I got this chambray skirt from Crossroads Trading Co. the last time I visited California.  And raise your hand if you love mood rings?  And you love them because My Girl  was one of your favorite movies.  Yeah, you know what I'm talking about.  I used to have a small collection of vintage ones I found at a flea market, but they're long gone now.  I'm glad I found this one at Forever 21!

Have an amazing week friends! <3

Thrifty Thursday: Forever 21 Buckle Flats

Although I love the summers here, I'm guilty like everyone else and wishing it were fall!  I just love the fall clothing.  And the excitement of shopping for all the new trends never gets tiring either. ;)

I recently purchased these adorable buckle flats from Forever 21 and I just had to feature them for this week's Thrifty Thursday.  I think a wine-colored pleated mini skirt like this one from SheInside would bring out the preppy side of the shoes.  And a mini begs for a cute pair of tights like these ones from H&M which make it look like you're wearing over the knee socks.  I'd keep warm in this adorable bow sweater from Target, and add a pop of color with this Missguided cobalt blue clutch.

What do you think of this preppy look for fall?  Let me know on Twitter!

Hey friends!!  I really apologize for the lack of posts this summer.  I just haven't felt motivated to post photos.  I feel like I can get caught up in the "I need to link this and link that to try to make money" and it just gets overwhelming!  I know there are a lot of bloggers out there who spread links like wildfire, and props to them for having the time to do it.  I want to make money off my blog too, but not when it sacrifices time away from enjoying this Oregon summer.  It's been nice getting dressed and not having to worry about taking photos and going through the whole ordeal of posting them on here.

I miss it though, and that's why I'll keep on posting every now and then. :)

One item I always try to thrift are blouses.  It's nice to find those unique pieces, but having a variety of tops to choose from makes putting together different outfits easier for me.  A few weeks ago, I got lucky and found some really nice vintage blouses that I can wear now and in a few weeks when the weather starts getting cooler.  This Hawaiian print top is one of them!  

The blues, greens, and purples are so vibrant and I really like how it contrasts with my black skort.  I always love it when something vintage pairs so well with something modern.  It's the best kind of outfit! :)

Hope you have a great start to your week! <3
