Forgive the sudden disapearance. I spent a day lingering in vacation mode, followed by a road trip to the city (that would be Boston), and then returned home to a looong outage from thunderstorms. Phew. But here I am, and ready to show you the essentials that I gathered for the day trip:
Why, new shoes and a handbag of course. Green shoes, that add to my mysteriously growing collection of green shoes. And the new handbag I whipped up in the midnight hours this week, using a vintage curtain panel that I adore (oddly, I walked around the thrift store with more of the same panels and ultimately put them back to keep just one. what?). The button closure, and pleats at the top of the bag are just the right amount of something to make it not feel like a tote, I think. I'm quite in love with my new shoe/bag treats. And they were the perfect addition for a day spent in the city with a dear friend and my dear baby girl. A little shopping at Anthropologie (my buying restraint was stellar, I tell you. but I did leave a trail of drool behind. Ah..), some city thrifting, some amazing Indian food (Namaskar in Davis Square), and a return home to two adorable snuggled-up-in-bed boys. A very, very good day.
(for all you green shoe lovers asking me about the shoes, they're Born, and can be found here. They come in orange too. yum.)
