Sweater: Thrift Shorts: Vintage Shoes: Chinese Laundry 

I had been looking for these shorts for months, and the past couple of weeks have been torture since I've had the idea for this outfit & couldn't find all of the pieces.  Well, my week got a little better when I found them in the trunk of my car & I put this little number together immediately.  
Additionally, my new apartment arrangement is working nicely and I found another dog portrait oil painting for $8.00!!  Hopefully, you all have great plans for the weekend.  I'll be working working working, but I'll be getting some hikes in, too.  Oh and I want to give a big shout out to everyone at NYFW, I can't wait to see butt loads of pictures when you all get back!

I have been trying to figure out a theme for buying ridiculous vintage portraits, myself. I am somewhere between roses and unicorns.

Thank-you for the birthday wishes, by the way!!! You are so sweet! : )
