Erie Canal

Shirt from Goodwill, H&M floral dress, Hue tights from Marshalls, Jeffrey Campbell clogs,
Vintage bracelets, Forever 21 and vintage rings, Burberry sunglasses

Lately all of my days have been blending together. I've settled into a routine of waking up, drinking coffee, checking email (and getting sad about having no responses to my job applications), and bumming around. I clearly need a job, or at least some sort of direction in life. Isn't the economy supposed to be back on the upswing, or is that just a lie I've been telling myself?

Anyways, I'm always happy when I'm able to break out of the routine and go do something semi-exciting, like when the BF and I went to the Erie Canal the other day. The canal isn't filled yet, so the water level is really low and you can truly see how much garbage is in it, but it was still kind of beautiful in its own way. Plus there was a little boy feeding ducks with his mom, which I thought was absolutely adorable.

PS: Only 2 more followers needed until I post the giveaway!!

What beautiful scenery! I really love this outfit. It is evocative of 1990s in all the right ways but tempered/updated through modern proportions and the inclusion of those clogs.

Sending you lots of luck in the job hunt. I'm sure you'll land something soon!

You look lovely! I really, really like those JC clogs and I'm not much of a fan of clogs, but they are just too cute! Good luck on finding a new job, I know it's tough out there, but you'll probably find something when you least expect it.
