Hide and Seek

I haven't been around much and I feel really bad about it.  Unfortunately, the midwest has been hit by some crazy storms lately and I usually hate to be on the computer when it is severe outside.  Not to mention, yesterday I had my wisdom teeth removed.  Luckily, I am not in a lot of pain.  I do look like a chipmunk though!  My cheeks are swollen so I have been spending a lot of time with ice on my face. 

However, last weekend, I had a great day passing through some garage sales and thrifting downtown with my good friend Andrea.  I managed to buy two leather vintage purses, a belt, a hat pin and three dresses!  We went to an amazing vintage stores in Chicago named Seek.  I suggest if anyone is in the Chicagoland area, they go here!  I wanted to buy so much but, limited myself to the three dresses and the belt.

Dress: Vintage from Seek
Necklace: refurbished (by my brother) heart watch pendant from the 1970s
Bracelets: gift from a co-worker (from India)

Everything comes in Threes...

I feel bad that I haven't posted in so long! Life has just been so busy.  We have been dealing with a leak in our roof and it doesn't help that there has been a crazy amount of rain lately.  Luckily, none of the water in making it into our house.  It is simply ruining one of our eaves.  I also have been really busy at work trying to pursue an open position in another department and the normal business craziness!  Lastly, I have become addicted to the gym.  Finally I am starting to see results hence, I have been more encouraged to go.  Sadly, all of this takes time away from blogging.

So, as a makeup, I have compiled a few of my outfits from the last week!
