an outfit, and an invitation.

Christmas came early for this girl! My friend, Meghan, cleaned out her amazing closet (seriously, it’s awesome) and sent me home with a big ol’ bag of sweet hand-me-downs last weekend. Thanks again, Meg!

Speaking of friends, Anne of Wobisobi DIY fame will be at the flower shop this Thursday evening for a fun downtown Art Walk. If you’re a local reader, we’d love to meet you over a cocktail, while snapping a few fun photos and learning a cool DIY trick or two from Anne. Bring an oversized men’s t-shirt, and Anne will show you how to turn it into something fabulous!

Let us know if you think you can make it in the comments! We want to be sure to have enough prosecco on hand ;)

    One man’s trash is another’s treasure. I love the opportunity to recycle pieces that my friends may otherwise just throw away :)

    I love how well you wear hand-me-downs. You look effortlessly classy. My favorite hand me downs come from my little sister. She is my style maven.

    (totally loved mellowing out to the little video you included. Laughed at the no-K race)
