I had an absolutely spectacular rapture day! I was supposed to do house chores today, but I wasn't about to spend my last day cleaning... so I went out and enjoyed the beautiful day!


I started of the day vintage hunting at yard sales and thrift shops! I scored some great jewelry pieces that I plan to incorporate in future DIY projects as well as two crossbody purses; one white metal mesh and one embroidered with fringe!

Vintage finds!

When I was done running errands, I didn't want to go back home--I wanted to be out and enjoying the warm weather! So I stopped by the beauty supply store to look. But to my surprise, the entire store was 20% off! I couldn't help but buy a few bottles of polish, right? Especially when I saw the Serena Williams shatter duo!

Beauty haul!

After that, I went to visit my favorite boutique (Therapy), and as luck would have it, there was an art festival up and down the whole street that the store is on! I spent time perusing the various booths before heading into the boutique. The weather was absolutely perfect!

In Therapy, I very nearly bought a third pleated skirt, but after I tried it on, I decided I didn't like the length on me. I did discover a tray full of gorgeous rings by someone who may very well be my new favorite jewelry designer--Jan Michaels!

It was extremely hard to choose just one, but I finally decided on the gorgeous lion ring!

The best part about my day? Literally everywhere I went, someone complimented my outfit! It made me feel like a million bucks!
