Red Heart

Happy Tuesday. Here's a quickie on a busy day filled with many, many meetings. Oh my - blogging is absolutely worth it, but my sleep schedule is totally off. By the time I finish my day job (which is more like a lifestyle for me) and get myself to the gym, it's way after dinner. I usually find myself on the couch for the remainder of the night, scratching out small thoughts and editing the photos to go along with them. This is no exception. Here is a post that I'm making very tired, but with lots of heart. 



This dress was perfectly cozy for a day with an abundance of chill in the air. I got it at a boutique in the Summer and couldn't wait for it to cool down enough for it to be a desirable wear. Now it is so cold that I'm wishing for that temperate day on which I bought this dress. Ain't it always the way. These shoes are super vintage and were bought in Camden Market in London. I will always hold them dear to my heart as they hold some sparse but fond memories of aimless solo wandering through a city that I sometimes forget I've even ever visited. It was a flash, but these shoes remain. Have a wonderful day. 


(Dress: Thrifted, Shoes: Vintage, Tights: Hue, Hairbow: Thrifted)

Those are great vintage shoes. I love the two tone look on them. And like the others say, take time to decompress and relax. Blogging is relaxing to me, but when I stay up late to do it, I'm not so nice to work with in the morning. At least, not until I have my coffee:)
