There are many times when one needs to get ready expediently. And it's not always to transform oneself into cocktail hour pretty, occasionally it's for furniture shopping! A little while ago, I woke up at the crack of dawn only to go back to bed, and then get up to head out to farmer's markets and furniture browsing.
The weather was a slight chill, the streets were mostly silent with the exception of the background muffle of engine sounds of trucks from the "sanitation experts." Yes, the trash men seemed to be afar, however the continuous noises were expected, in fact they sort of grew on you like a repetitive hymn given the stillness of the morning.
Dress details: Wooden beads with embroidery.
Since I had to find an outfit in a pinch I decided on a strapless wood-beaded dress, then paired it with a thrifted bomber jacket that I've not worn in years. The key was to have a simple outfit that I could still be comfortable in later, in addition to the weather being warmer throughout the day. It was feeling like daytime fall, so I had fun with my leather Kenzie boots and brought them out to accompany this easy ensemble.
As for the shopping, it was an eventful day. I saw all things tufted (which I love), and gazed at vintage cabinets, but we left empty handed and decided on a new plan for our modern living room this time around. But, I know the tufted items will win regardless!
