Today's post is kind of strange with the outfit change, huh? Monday's are an odd day for me. I have two classes in the morning, and then another one in the evening. The night class just happens to start at the time I normally go out to get my outfit pictures, leaving me in a tiny bit of a predicament. I figured rather than going out when the sun was too high, I'd stick around indoors instead. But you guys have already seen so much of my living room that I didn't want to sicken you with looking at the same areas over and over again; hence my clothes rack!

I rarely shoot in this area of the house, and I forgot to show you my retro lamp and Eames era clock when I thrifted them earlier in the summer. They were both pretty lucky finds! The lamp was more expensive than what I normally pay, but after passing it once and coming back to find it again, I figured it was worth the $20 the thrift store owner was asking—plus they support Our House which is a really great charity. The clock, on the other hand, was marked at an incredibly low price, and I honestly couldn't get it in my basket fast enough! I've been looking for one like it for months and months, and finally I found it in Robin's egg blue and for only $8.

Oh! I can't leave out the mini phone pencil sharpener either. I've got a mad obsession with collecting tiny pencil sharpeners, and this is probably my favorite one right now. I've got this one, as well as a vintage camera, a coffee grinder, a lamp, and a gramaphone record player, all in the most perfect miniature size.

These are adorable! Your expression in the last photo makes me smile. You just seems so content/proud of yourself with your outfit change.

You look so cute!

I was going to say something along the lines of how nice your rack looks and then refrained from feeling like a creep, but had to go there anyway because it's really just too funny not to. Ha!
