Monday

red & yellow ochre

And so I left Urbana. I packed everything up in my car and headed for Edwardsville. FORTUNATELY when I was ALMOST there... my car literally DIED. Yeah, it started making a rattling noise and it sounded like something was getting ready to fall out of the engine area. After a while, the lights started dying and my steering wheel started becoming harder and harder to turn. It was literally the scariest feeling especially with cars passing me at 70- 80 mph. So now I am stuck without a car. 
haha.. these pictures were obviously taken before my car died.. thank god.
I got the boots as a present from my Aunt Kate. Apparently they were just lying in the back of her closet? They are my first pair of cowboy boots and I have been wanting cowboy boots for a couple years! I always joke that I was just never meant to have them. Then they just appear! 
dress: thrifted h&m from Salvation Army
tights: UO 
green socks: vintage, my mother's
coat: vintage, Salvation Army
clutch: vintage, University of Illinois costume & props sale
1905 penny necklace: gift
love, polly

Um, you might not have a car, but at least you have super sweet C-boy boots. That's a win!

Cute outfit :] I was going to watch the lunar eclipse, but the sky was too cloudy. I saw the last one, though, and it was really neat. Hope you got to see it!

Sorry to hear about your car. Keep warm!

Karen said...

Oh that's no fun! Referring to the car dying, not what appears to be oodles of fun in the pics. Hope your car is easily & inexpensively fixed or there is an easy solution around the corner.

We couldn't see the lunar eclipse here as we've got a series of rain storms passing through. Did you see it? :>
