A Rather Dull Fiesta

I used to have a stockpile of Mexican embroidered blouses, left over in part from my grandparents' frequent travels to Central America. Somehow along the way I lost almost all of them, except for this one, which used to belong to my mother. I looked at the tag today, expecting to see that it was from Oaxaca or someplace, but, nope — Vancouver!



I searched desperately this morning for my beloved huaraches, but didn't turn them up. So I am modeling some shoes that I'm going to sell via Instagram (if I can bear to part with them ... they're pretty cute!).


Somewhere in my Closet of Doom, I have a bunch of spring/summer stuff squirrelled away that I haven't unearthed yet. Maybe a project for next weekend before I leave for a vacation to Oregon.Speaking of which, I'm really excited to have lined up a few interviews with other style bloggers for the week that I'm away. I think you'll really enjoy it! I'm looking forward to it myself.



If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I had an AMAZING weekend of rummage sale shopping, and I'm heading out now to a big sale at my local thrift store. The weather may not exactly say "spring" yet, but this spate of sales has certainly put me in a springtime mood!


I don't know about you, but I have to fight the urge to buy a whole new wardrobe when the seasons change ... I am trying really hard to "shop my closet," and it has been productive for the most part, if only to help me identify things that really aren't working, and give myself permission to part with them. But I'm not going to lie, I found a few treasures this weekend that I just may have to keep.


Red Mexican blouse: Hand-me-down
