A dark ballet + links a la mode

With all of my family in Norway and Finland, I sometimes forget I have a handful of second and third cousins down in Washington State. This weekend we took the time to visit my "aunt" (but really Godmother) down in Mount Vernon and Anacortes - with the strong sun, glowing leaves, harvest-ripe fruit and veggies, vibrant skies and crisp, bright mornings, I wish Autumn could last all year long.



























Skirt and tank: Forever 21; Leather Jacket: Vintage; Self-studded DIY shoes from Payless (which I alluded to in the previous post).

Love that color combo. They were my high school colors. Ahhhhhhh. Memories.

Wow, I can't believe how much like North Canterbury those photos look. You could be on my a friends lifestyle block, from the house to the large lawn with the exact same trees, amazing that you can be on the other side of the world but all things look the same, definitely not your Wisteria Lane version of housing that I always imagine. LOL

Only you can pull of green and yellow with studded leather, you truely amaze me.

Leese - actually I got in on Ebay, it's a MEN's jacket :P if you find small ones, they can be much more affordable than women's ones, I have found :)
