Vintage & Plaid


It's Friday morning and I'm taking things slowly. I've been sipping my coffee and catching up on all of my favorite blogs. Scott is having a busy morning at his internship, and I'm so happy for him. I know I mentioned awhile back that he was having an internship this semester, but I don't think I said where. Well, he's interning with Anthropologie in one of their local visual design departments. I couldn't be more excited for him, and really hope he enjoys his time there. I can already tell that he's going to really enjoy doing this (he LOVES designing and creating). I can't wait to go in soon and see some of his work on display!




The other day I was reading this post on Calivintage talking about her favorite basics in her wardrobe. She mentioned how she really loves this vintage inspired purse that she carries around daily, and that a great alternative to it would be the new (and vintage) Coach classics. Well, being that I have a soft spot for Coach (especially vintage Coach) in my heart, I was inspired to go out on a mini adventure with Scott in search of a vintage Coach bag (Scott gave me one a few years ago that I absolutely cherish!). Well, much to our surprise we were able to score two vintage Coach bags (one in near mint condition) on major sale at a local thrift shop. I'm still kind of astounded at our luck, but I'm so happy and will cherish the bags for ever. I absolutely LOVE classic pieces!


I'm still loving my Jersy boots from Blowfish Shoes. To me, they're definitely a staple piece (easy to wear and mix with different looks), and right now they're on sale! If you're still looking for a great boot for winter, these are definitely the ones for you! I love my pair!

Today I'm hoping to get a few things done before Scott gets done at his internship (like school work and a few blog related things). I'm also hoping to go on a nice long walk today, and maybe even go see a movie. Scott and I both really want to see The Artist! Has anyone seen it yet?

What do you have planned for the weekend? What are your must-have basics in your closet?
