Street Spirit


I think Tuesdays are always going to be heavy on errands and homework. I've asked for it off at work, since all of my classes are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Today, it's not too bad though, since it's the beginning of the term: Architecture History reading, a design project focusing on the state of Virginia (which I know nothing about... other than brief snatches of history and that Pocohontas lived there) and then work on a pattern made of type. Met with Sarah briefly to take pictures again today and have plans to go to Goodwill with my roommate when she gets out of class.


I wore my most comfortable dress. It's a super old cotton Aerie dress, meaning it was probably meant for lounging around at home. It's soft and polka dotted and just the right amount of fitted.



I love this vintage cameo brooch I found a few weeks ago.


And I threw on this lacy white cropped top to hide the fact that the dress is cut super low and to add some interest and warmth, for if I take my little jacket off.


Thanks for taking my pictures again, Sarah.

Also, I love messy buns because they're so quick, cute and easy; then I don't have to worry about my hair in the rain--which is inevitable, since I live in Oregon. And then I feel like a ballerina, too.

  1. Oh Lea, can you be any cuter? I can never pair dresses with tops just because I feel like I am wearing too much already with the layers, but you do it so effortlessly. And the headband just adds a little more cuteness to the already cute you!
