Let's Give This A Try

Ok, so in an attempt to break out of a t-shirts/workout wear/jeans fashion rut and up the style ante a bit in 2011, I am going to be adding some sporadic 'daily outfit' posts. I know a lot of people out there do these, most far better than me, but there is only one way to get better at something, right? So here goes.. 

The temperature was pretty cool here today, not really cold, but boots were definitely acceptable, and this shirt is one of my all time favorite vintage scores! I bought it back in September while in Chicago for Renegade.  The colors of the plaid are so warm and and feel so 70's to me, and folks, it has a tiny puff sleeve. 'Nuff said. 
(Also, take a peek at our newly rearranged living room! We were super busy before the New Year painting and moving furniture, I absolutely love how the house is set up now!)
 Top: vintage, bought in Chicago
Necklace: vintage
Jeans: Urban Outfiiters
Boots: Christmas presents from several years ago

I must say, today was a great day! We slept in, walked around the corner to our fav 'greasy spoon' diner, The Cracked Egg, for a late breakfast, worked on the house a bit, and then we got a call that a vintage chair we had on consignment had sold, so we decided to head over to Orlando to pick up our check and do a little post-holiday shopping! (Hence the snazzy outfit.) JB and I both got some new shoes (on sale!) and we hit up IKEA for an new entertainment console.  I had wanted to go with something vintage, but in the end we decided we just had too many stipulations, and that we could end up waiting forever for the right piece to come along.  So instead, we customized a piece from IKEA, and while it isn't put together yet, I think I am going to love the outcome.  (Will share pics soon, promise!) 
Hope everyone had a fantastic Saturday! I have some news to share tomorrow, I am so excited it's almost unbearable. Almost. ;)

Stay warm,
the bird
