Here's Looking At You, Kid.

So today my outfit pretty much revolved around this amazing brooch I received this morning at the un-holy hour of 10:30 AM. Okay - so that's not really early at all, but I am not the biggest morning person and quite often lately I have been finding myself still awake at 3 AM... Anyways, my dad woke me to give me a chest filled with jewelry from my great aunt that they found. When I saw this amazing cameo brooch (and an assortment of other amazing cameo pieces!) I knew I had to incorporate it somehow. I also got the chance to wear my beautiful lace H&M dress for the first time! We headed back to Spring Street for pictures today! I just think this alleyway is awfully pretty.

Dress- H&M ; Cardigan- Forever 21 ; Shoes- SHI ; Brooch- My great aunt's ; Ring- Trimmings Boutique.

So really how cool are these funky flats... Hah usually I wouldn't go for shoes so flashy, but for some reason these stuck out to me, I like how they pick up the orangey tones in my brooch!

I bought this ring today! I think I was having a little bit over a freak out over this $12 ring and immediately made Brian take a picture of it. But isn't it amazing?!?! Somehow the jewels aren't tacky at all to me, and make it incredibly adorable!

After a little bit of shopping.. my mom and dad met up with Brian and I and we ate at this adorable cafe called Cheddar Alley. They have amazing cheeses and the interior is perfect, really. I got a delicious chicken quesdilla, while Brian opted for a crazy sandwich- as usual.

Oh! And I picked up these cuties today too! My mom found me my first bird like this at a flea market and since I have been slowly adding to my collection. Today I found a store with a jackpot of little ceramic birds, so I picked up three of the most unique and I hope to go back for more soon! Seriously though I think Spring Street has become one of my new favorites, there are so many nifty shops that are all independently owned. And the really delicious cafe there is an added perk after a day of shopping haha !
