Afternoon darlings!
This year I've found myself drawn to a more classic vintage look again, because not only is this easy for me to achieve in the mornings (another reason I chopped off my hair!) but it can also be done on a relatively low budget! Bonus!
A few key peices can be easily picked up in charity shops to create a timeless look. My must have items for this time of year are a pair of black, close fitting pedal pushers and a delicate pair of ballet pumps (very Audrey Hepburn!) a cream mac (believe me, it goes with everything!) and a pretty hair scarf... (very Grace Kelly!) Paired with either a sweater or a blouse (Undergarments transform the shape of these modern peices, a cone bra from @revivallingerieuk does the trick for me!) I then add a clip frame bag, sunnies and some gloves, and I get a simple, yet classic look! (This is also the perfect starting place ladies, if you're worried about trying vintage and standing out!)

Not going to lie, I was pretty proud of that "free hand" chicken! 🐔Haha!
I had theatre date with a friend last night (it was SO good! Thank you to everyone who asked!) so in the morning I whipped up a quick chicken pie for Mr H to pop in the oven when he got in from work.
When I met him many (many!) moons ago, he was a big fan of those pies in a tin 🙈 This is my take on one of those! Chicken in white wine sauce, then simply topped with a nutmeg infused pastry 🐔

Some layering ideas for the Free People slip dresses I have available 💕

2 slip dresses by Intimately Free People, size small and extra small but both can fit up to a medium (looser fit style). The rose pink one is excellent condition other than damaged tag, ivory one is great used condition (a few repairs were made but not noticeable when worn)
These are great layering pieces! I'm including a pretty chiffon scarf by Lauren Conrad, worn once. Matches both slip dresses. Original retail for one of these slip dresses is $88, asking $35 shipped for all!✨

Ann Taylor Loft floral button down top (hidden buttons). Flowy, flattering for. Size small, works for medium as well. Excellent condition ✨12 shipped✨

Finally got the chance to try this out last night. Last Thursday, I was sharing with someone that I was going to look at these while in Ollie's because I have been thinking about treating myself to one. Walked into the store and... Guess what was up front by the door! Was that a sign?! 🎁 CONFESSION: I have never owned a heated/electric throw/blanket. Good thing there's a sentence in the instructions that informs me that it is NOT a heating pad and does not function as such. 😏 I think (emphasis here) it works well, but I don't know how it's suppose to work. I mean my feet felt warm and my bed did too after returning from that late-night bathroom run. 😀 As you can see I paid 49.99 LESS than the original price, but the packaging is a little iffy. BUT @olliesoutlet has a good return policy, from what I understand, should I find out it isn't operating as manufactured to.

Today's haul. A gorgeous set of carriage bells that sound like singing angels !!! Hubs and I bought from a local in Seaside, OR. We're going to hang this on our front door. Seriously, they sound like magic.🎅 Also found a set of sleigh bells today. The vintage bedsheet was found at @unionvintagepdx on our way away from home this morning. Of course I couldn't NOT stop to thrift at home before going on a thrifty trip away. 😋
