Like my umbrella? It's the only kind that will keep your face safe from wind whipped raindrops. I need a little one for my camera. Today I took my inspiration from Milly's Fall collection, pairing a slouchy sweater with the longest, heaviest skirt I own. I wanted to pair this with my orange-y tall boots, but I seem to have misplaced them somehow. Who loses clothes?!

vintage skirt \\\ crossroads

Lucky for me, I stayed snug most of the day, driving in warm cars through the rain. Ended up stopping at Target and found some sale knee socks, stocked up on toilet paper, and while looking through the sale hats, found a free beanie! Now, I'm not an advocate for theft, but someone had obviously left their slightly worn hat in the pile and stole a new one. So I took the discarded, tag-less, vaguely perfumed blue cap. Not a usual act, I'll say. *I made a new page called Money Matters, where I track my spending, share my personal financial probs and how I'm trying to alleviate them. If anyone's interested, check it out. When I update the page, I likely link to it in a regular blog post, or make a sidebar link.

**Lauren, in answer to your question, I've been hand sewing since I was a kid, but I got my first (and current!) machine when I was about fifteen ;)
