I hope you all had fantastic weekends. This weekend I finally bought some TOMS and so far I'm in L-O-V-E! When I went to the store they told me they probably didn't have any in my size (6.5) because that size is apparently nearly impossible to find in stores...but the nice salesman dug around in the back and finally came up with one pair of TOMS left in a 6.5, the only catch: they were stark white. I was worried about white getting super dirty, super fast, but after I put these babies on my feet I didn't much seem to care. :) They are pretty adorable for comfy shoes (I kind of adore the blue stitching), and I guess I have committed to a little shoe washing maintenance from time to time.
I tested out the comfiness my new TOMS at the Flea Market, where I snagged 5 vintage dresses, a ring, a bracelet, and 2 necklaces for a grand total of $64! I seriously scored - it's been a long time since I've gotten that fabulous of a deal, and it was just my lucky day in vintage wear. Usually it takes a lot of effort and digging to first find vintage clothing you love (some "vintage" clothes at the flea market are more like old junk), and then you cross your fingers just hoping it will actually be in your size. The flea market gods must have been smiling on me that day. I've never come away with so many clothing items in one shot! As you can tell, I'm very excited about this.
I also went for a nice night time bike ride with my hubby (see the new TOMS?) It was a perfect Summer night, which equals the perfect weather for a bike ride to the park. All in all, it was relaxing and wonderful to get back to trolling around my usual stops in So. Cal.

here's a close up of that blue stitching, of which I'm so fond.
How was your weekend? Hopefully you enjoyed similar sunny weather.
