OOTD: Baby Cousin Style


Lissy and Jenny came to visit (from NC) over Thanksgiving! We had loads of fun going into the city and watching the Thanksgiving sunrise over the Mayflower and drinking too much coffee and watching Christmas specials til all hours. And among our usual hijinks we fit in a makeover/ootd photo shoot! They are, for real,  the fairest baby cousins in all the land.

I am pretty much in love with Tom Waits. He's one of my biggest inspirations as well as crushes. And this morning, what I'm listening to. I've found that the best way to listen to Tom (other than in my living room. live.) is on gloomier days with a cup of Earl Grey.
 Enjoy :)

Outfit Of The Day

 Good morning! Here is a very short outfit post (short post, not so much short outfit :) because I have ever so much to do today!
 This is actually yesterday's outfit. Today's isn't much to look at. I look like I'm going trail running in the chilly autumn woods (which is, yes, entirely what I am doing).
But after that I have a fun tutorial to photograph and a ttv Christmas photo shoot for Christmas cards!


Skirt~ Thrifted
Top~ Target
Tights~ Dots
Sweater~ Thrifted
Belt~ Thrifted
Shoes~ Thrifted

P.S. Just a heads up for all you thrifty folks who may have Saver's Thrift Stores in your neck of the woods... All shoes, clothes, bed and bath is 50% off with a savers club card tomorrow! I've been waiting for another one of these promotions for a while. I need some inexpensive, gently worn fashionable knitwear :)

Happy Wednesday!

Monday Bits and Pieces

Today was lovely. Lovely little 5 minute snowstorm, lovely knitting session, lovely beach visit. 

I ended up going to the beach to knit, but it was about 50 degrees colder than I expected, so I sat in my car and knitted up some orders, listening to audio books and seagulls and drinking pumpkin coffee!

Shop Update // Holiday Planning!

This is what I've been doing all day! And now I feel a bit cross eyed and in need of some tea.... But I finally got some new things into the shop! 
Now it's time to think up some fun promotional things for Cyber Monday and Black Friday! They are two of my favorite non-holidays. The beginning of Christmas! I geek out every year for them. Last year I went nuts on Etsy for Cyber Monday and bought all my stocking stuffers. And my stylish baby cousins and I stay up all night on Thanksgiving and go shopping the minute the shops open on Black Friday! It's not so much the shopping as it is the bonkers holiday spirit that is displayed on these two days. I've never had anything but good experiences on Black Friday (and you can't really get trampled on Cyber Monday, as it's well, cyber), and I am totally looking forward to this year and being a shop owner this year being able to offer my customers fun promotional things and fun little surprises in their orders!

Friday Favorites; Moonrise Kingdom Edition

I LOVED Moonrise Kingdom. If I had had anything to wear a costume to this Halloween I would've been Suzy for sure. Maybe next year! 
Here are some of my favorite things from the creative folks on Etsy. I want all of them. If you click on the pictures they'll bring you to the item's listing. 
Happy Friday all!
