on what I wore...

Target shirt
Target cardigan (one of my favorites—you can't really tell, but there's lace across the shoulders)
old-timey locket from a store that no longer exists
Gap jeggings (as per the usual)
Target (Mossimo) flats

Does this shirt look familiar? Yep, I wore it last Wednesday. Along with those pants. (Don't ask whether or not I've made it to the laundromat since then, because I will definitely give you a look.) And I'm thinking that white blur on my knee is either a ghost or a smudge on the mirror. Let's go with smudge so I can sleep tonight.

Here are a couple details of today's outfit:

This locket used to hold a photo of Jay's cousin and her poodle. True story. Which was always a good time when people inquired about what was inside my locket. (Thanks, Cami!) But after Eisley was born, I figured it would make more sense if I put a photo of my child in the locket I wore almost constantly.

You know those contact sheets that sometimes arrive with photos you order? I always feel bad throwing those things away (my inner hoarder is alive and well, thank you very much), so I ended up cutting out a couple of those mini-photos of Eisley to put in the locket. The fit almost perfectly. Who knew?

I made a pair of mustard yellow mini-rosette earrings for myself and have worn them almost daily for the past week. I rarely make items for myself (oddly enough) and typically give items I make away as gifts or list them immediately in my shop. So, it's been nice to wear something I created just for me. (Shameless plug: If you'd like me to create a pair for you, there are a limited amount available here!)
