Weird weather today. Sunny one minute then cloudy the next. You can probably tell by the light in these photos! Excited to break out the lace up boots for fall. I found these at the Goodwill and almost had a heart attack. Definitely could not believe they were my size (although I had to scrape out the insides since they were super crumbly. A small price to pay)

PS Exciting news! Starting this month I have a vintage column on the Karmaloop ladies' blog! I'll post about vintage clothing tips and tricks every first Tuesday. Pretty neat stuff, huh? To read this month's post (Why Buying Vintage Clothing Rules) looky HERE!
