Yesterday I was unreasonably happy. Just completely and totally unjustifiably. It was a little excessive, really.
I had no business being happy, but there I was, ignoring all the facts and unable to swallow the smile down. The coffee I brewed tasted like swamp water, my hair was trying to poof out into a Golden Girls type of shape while I wasn't looking, I missed my train back home by a hair, and I still had an obscenely long to-do list waiting for me in my planner. But...I just couldn't be bothered by it.
The sun was coming down in gold, slow moving boats were making summer sounds in the river that snaked between skyscrapers, I had my favorite shoes on, a Fitzgerald book in my backpack, and Dunkin Donuts was giving coffee away for a dollar.
In my book, everything was going right. Or at least trying its hardest to. And I, for one, always appreciate the effort.
Also, how perfect is this wide leg + high neck + white sunnies combo? At first I was a little hesitant to put it together because I don't like when colors are so matchy matchy, but as I smoothed down my pants and glanced in the mirror it took my all not to do a happy little wiggle right then and there. Instead I nonchalantly brushed a piece of lint off my shoulder and nodded my head at my reflection. This will do, I told us. Then I did the happy little wiggle.
This gorgeous vintage top is from Mousevox Vintage, and when I saw the collar I knew I had to nab it. It reminded me of something Lauren Bacall would have hanging in her closet, and, let me tell you, if it's good enough for Ms. Bacall it's good enough for me. Mousevox Vintage is all 60's summers and vintage California girl, which makes sense seeing how it's based in Oakland. Rachel, the owner, nabs items with simple lines and clean shapes, and usually gravitates towards floral dresses, shifts, white sandals, and delicate blouses. If you have a simple and elegant style, then I would definitely go check out Mousevox Vintage here!
