Lovely Day

My outfit:
Dress: thrifted (Old Navy)
Cardigan: thrifted (Merona)
Leggings: Old Navy
Boots: thrifted 

Today consisted of much-needed girl time. I went to the local farmers' market this morning and met up with my friend Mae. She has a booth there with "recycled jewelry" she sells. She makes new pieces of jewelry from unwanted costume jewelry, and let me tell you, they are pretty awesome. She is one talented girl, this Miss Mae.
I love her displays, they're so creative.

Splendid Handmade Jewelry:
I bought two of her necklaces today (she was having a killer sale). I think I'll try to do more outfit posts so I can show them off. Speaking of showing off, I love these boots. 

Never in my life have I owned cowboy boots until now. They were just calling my name yesterday at the thrift shop. It was truly incredible because they are just my size, which is very hard to find (especially at a second-hand store), having such small feet. I am not a cowgirl or an extreme country music lover by any means, I just really like these boots. Maybe it has to do with living in the Southwest. Maybe it has something to do with these boots looking fit for a superhero. Whatever the reason, I was drawn to them. 
After farmers' market, I ran a few errands and went to Savers with Mae. It's always nice to have a shopping buddy. I bought an adorable dress for church and helped Mae pick out some kitchenware for her new apartment. Also! I found an amazing framed owl. I think I'll post a picture some other time (too lazy right now). I ended the day with a delicious dinner at Japanese Kitchen with the husband. Now it's time to go feed the in-laws' pets and maybe wind down with a DVD and some cuddling. 
Toodles, xo
