My Vintage Style

I love finding little vintage treasures. You see, I live a couple blocks away from a thrift store that I frequent a few times a week. I've found some cute items for my home and I love mixing them with modern pieces.

pretty mirrored tray on my dining table
love the swan detail on the handles

an old window I used as a picture frame
love the modern print in the rustic window

Do you collect any vintage pieces for your home??

Hi readers and happy Tuesday! I got this skirt during Anthro's 50% off promo so it was a steal for $35 (originally $128). I love all the pretty colors and that I can pair a multitude of bright colors with it. Here's what I wore to church on Sunday...

OOTD: Asymmetrical Stripes

Happy Thursday everyone! This outfit was actually from a few weeks ago, I just forgot to post it. I got this cute top at Nordstrom and I know that it will be a summer staple for me. I'm really loving the seafoam stripes.

All About Toms

Well I'm officially a Toms fan, and I can't believe how comfortable they are. They're going to be my go-to shoe this Spring and Summer. I decided to get the Carpe Diem ones because I like the black and white print and I think they'll pair nicely with my wardrobe. I also got the pink glitter ones for my daughter and she just loves them. 
Like mother, like daughter.
Aren't those glitter ones so dang cute! Gigi is always asking me if she can wear her "sparkle shoes!"

OOTD: Layered Column Dress

So I finally caved in and got this dress and I can pretty much blame my sister for it! She told me how pretty and flattering it was and as soon as I tried it on I was smitten. The reviews don't lie on this dress, it is extremely well made, super flattering, and super comfortable too.

Last month I went on a dream trip to Hawaii with my husband's family. We stayed in a beautiful resort on the island of Maui. We went on a helicopter ride, went whale watching, biked down the Haleakala volcano, went to a luau, had lots of yummy food, and of course spent lots of time lounging around by the pool! Here are some pics that I wanted to share with you.

OOTD: Kites & Constellations

What a sale this morning at Anthropologie. Did any of you get anything??  These are tempting me, you know I love anything with a bow!

I've loved this cardigan ever since it came out. So when Anthro had their 50% off promo going on this past December I saw one left in the Salt Lake City store and lucked out because it was my size! It has little sequins sewn in the center of each star. I just love little details like that! Here is what I wore to church on Sunday...
Anthropologie Kites and Constellations Cardigan, similar here
Anthropologie Scalinata Top, similar here
Anthropologie Peppered and Striped Skirt, similar-ish here
Anthropologie Waving Grain Pumps, similar here
And I was getting really bored with my hair and needed a little change. So as you can see from my pics I cut bangs again!

In December I decided to take a last minute trip to Disneyland! My sister talked me into going with her and we had a blast! Two of the days we had beautiful weather but one day we got rained out (at least the park was empty that day!). We had a great time and I can't wait to go back!
 The rainy day, we were prepared with our ponchos!
Taking a ride on the tea cups...
The park was decorated so cute for Christmas; I'm so glad I finally got to see it. :)
