selling vintage clothing has become slightly confusing. what i mean is, i no longer know what is mine and what is for sale. do i like something because i like it, or because i think someone else will like it & buy it? i know, it probably sounds stupid, & #firstworldproblems but it’s sort of become hard for me to know which clothes i’m supposed to keep.
it seems like nothing really stays in my closet (unless of course it’s not vintage, or it was a gift. i’m sentimental, what can i say?). i find myself wearing something, then listing it, selling it. however, rarely do i actually wish i hadn’t sold something. (so far only a handful of items…and i’m learning to identify that feeling, before i sell it!)
anyway! until i can figure it out this “problem,” i’ll keep posting “her picks” & pointing out those items that might be on my “regret selling” list. ha.
so my pick is this amazing lil trench jacket. it’s vintage and fits perfectly. so cute with….everything. for realz.
& the simple striped knit t shirt.
that’s all! again, thank you field, for being right across the street from our house, and allowing us to trespass daily!
this weeks mix features a lot of newer music with a couple oldies mixed in.
i recently picked up a jackson browne record at an estate and it’s growing on me.
it’s called “running on empty” and it’s partially live from concerts, while some songs were recorded in hotel rooms.
in other music news – we’re heading to l.a. this weekend to play a few songs at a release show for the beatles compilation we’re apart of.
it’s free if you wanna come hang out… more info —> here.
we have a field across the street from our house. we’ve seen the prettiest skies during sunset, looking out over the field.
sunset is also magic hour for photos. here are a few from the other day when we were hanging out with our niece and nephew.
alicia was told by her choir teacher to practice her song every minute she got. and that is precisely what she did.
nate waiting for me to set the camera up so we can take a christmas photo for his side of the family’s christmas card.
then after taking these pictures we played soccer with that deflated basketball and the kids won.
last winter, we discovered a lot of our neighbors had citrus fruits growing. we’d see tons of the fruit on the ground, rotting. we asked some of our neighbors if we could pick the fruit.
so basically, we had an unlimited source of oranges all winter long! nate & i would go on walks with our totes and fill up as much as we could carry, then do it again once we were running low.
we can hardly wait to start doing that again. they’re still a little green, so maybe in the next month we can start. for now we’ll just buy them at .89/lbs.
i used to never go to jamba juice, b/c… i don’t know why. but i went there with my sister recently, and realized how great it is (i know, 10 years late… ha).
they even serve wheat grass shots.
and have drinks that are all fresh juice, no additives. i do wish they juiced kale and celery, but i’ll take just oj and carrot juice.
b/c you are asking, my favorite drink right now, is their mangos and oj juice blend. it is SO good. and great source of vit. c & a & a little iron too.
anyway, i came home with 8 oranges (3.56) from the store and 20 champagne mangos (.25 each!) and decided to make my own smoothie.
i also bought a few young thai coconuts, they were 1.69 each! coconut juice not only tastes amazing, it’s also pretty preeeety good for ya. ( i guess it’s an acquired taste, but every time nate and i have one we can hardly believe anyone could possibly not like coconut water (olga…haha))
oj mango coconut mango smoothie
1-1/2 C – coconut water (juice from one young thai coconut)
2 heaping TBSP - chia seeds
2 1/2 C – OJ (about 4-6 oranges)
2 C – Champagne mangos (about 4-6 mangos)
add coconut water & chia seeds to high performance blender. blend until chia seeds are broken down. now add oj and & mango.
blend until creamy. makes about 72oz. enough for two pretty hungry people.
[cost for the huge smoothie was: mangos 1.50 + oranges 2.67 + coconut 1.69 + chia seeds .10 = 5.96 that's less than $3/person]
i hope you can try this smoothie! thanks for stopping by!
hi guys! haven’t done one of these in a while!
my pick is this amazing maxi tiger dress & camel nude overcoat. the dress reminds me of my deyrolle fox dress (oh man, makes me miss dreary new york city.) and the jacket is really the perfect jacket to throw on to go walk the dog or run to the farmers market. love it… maybe i should keep it. (i’ve already taken it out for a spin )
