New Friends

Hey there, all!

I hope that everyone is having a fantastic night! My day has been pretty chill: after internship, I got pancakes with a friend, did a 'Just Dance' workout and cried with my housemate over an episode of 'Chuck'. Seriously, this has been probably about the 4th blog post where I have mentioned this series. What am I going to do when we finally finish? It will be weird, that is for sure. You guys might have to give me some TV show suggestions. 

Anyway, I'm ready for the weekend, hoping to relax, maybe do a little thrifting, and spend some time reading. That sounds like the perfect weekend to me! 

So, this outfit I wore last week for internship and it is probably my favorite professional look. But, the best part? The bag. Seriously, it is gorgeous, spacious, and vintage in wonderful condition. And the best part? I got it from a Catholic thrift store for $1. Yeahhhhhhhh. There is a tiny little store near my internship agency, so I go every Friday when I get off early. And the ladies that run it? HILARIOUS. I was trying on a jacket the other week and they are like, "sweetie, that isn't your color." They just tell it like it is, but in the sweetest way possible. Plus, they tell me all about the vintage clothes they had when they were my age. I think I may have found some new besties. 









Sweater - Target brand - Thrifted
Skirt - Vintage - Thrifted 
Bag/Belt - Thrifted 
Tights - Wal*Mart - I think? I have had them since high school. 
Shoes - Kohl's 



Have a great evening everyone!

xoxo, 

Laura

This outfit is perfect, seriously! You look so pretty, dear, and I love those boots! And what a steal with that bag, they practically gave it to you.

I love the simplicity of this look...very cool & chic on you :-). I think I mentioned it before...but I was obsessed with Chuck when it was on the air. Really very sad when it ended. Did you see the episode where Jeff & Lester perform Africa? (One of my favorites)
