I think we're just going to have to be secretly in love with each other and leave it at that, Richie.

Oh, What a rainy day!

Today, another round robin high school fair, except this time there were four schools. I'm exhausted- especially after sitting in Boston traffic for two hours on the way home. Luckily for me, it's pouring outside so I didn't feel the least bit guilty for coming home and crawling back into bed. This is an outfit that I picked out ahead of time this past weekend, which made getting dressed at 5 am so much easier! The shirt I picked up at a Salvation army in Fitchburg last week and the skirt is from one of my trips to Maine (I think I found it at a Salvation Army in Raymond?). The shirt has that perfect worn-in pre-loved feeling! Now, the image below is in honor of ChicFaced's comment from my last post. I've been posting costumes from halloween past, and the one below is from about four years ago when my friend Adria and I went as Margot and Ritchie Tenenbaum:
Adria is far more convincing than I (note her hand drawn striped shirt- such commitment), and I have no idea why I'm wearing pantyhose, but we had a good time reciting lines from the movie all night. As you may come to realize, most of my costumes are thrown together last minute. This one is no different. I think I decided to be Margot as I was walking to Adria's house. Also, on a side note: that terrible celestial poster in the background does not belong to either of us.

I love those necklaces and today's outfit (coincidentally, I'm pretty matchy-matchy with you today). And I LOVE the costume idea...easy, simple, quirky.

Love how this outfit is pulled together. The colors are great and the whole outfit is $10 minus the necklaces! Can't go wrong with that. What a great wear for Fall.

I love your use of tights! I'm trying to venture into using more patterned tights into my daily wardrobe, and you've given me lots of inspiration! Thanks!
