Spring Spots

I know I've mentioned this before, but I just love my town's historic downtown area. It's full of quirks, pretty brick buildings, charming boutiques and businesses that have been there for years (some decades). I love that this area has still kept its small town way, even though the epitome of the suburbs has popped up around it.

Cardigan: Target; Shirt: Lucky Brand; Purse: Vintage coach; Raccoon tail: gift from Courtney; Jeans: Levi's; Heels: Sofft

Around the corner from this pretty brick wall is a lovely shop full of vintage housewares and other pretty items. It's a bit overpriced for myself, but I just looking in there for inspiration. They owners sure have an eye for great vintage pieces and style.

The other evening Scott and I stopped our friends' Courtney and Sanford's place to drop something out and to see if we could pull our heads together to figure out something in Illustrator. While we were there Courtney pulled out these cute little tails that she had ordered offline. Back in October I noticed that she had one that she wore on her person, and I told her how much I liked it. Well, Courtney ended up getting two tails instead of one when she ordered it online, so she gave one to me. It was so sweet of her and I just love it! Thank you Courtney!

These pretty little heels are my shoes for graduation. They are comfortable, low to the ground, and cute! I'm excited to wear them with my dress + cap and gown!

The wind was something fierce the other day!

Today I'm heading up to Cottonwood to spend time with my parents, and to have a pre-birthday celebration. It's going to be much cooler up there, and I'm going to be in the woods. Such a change from my favorite city living. I'll try and take a few photos while I'm up there!
