Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, (North, not including Canada or Mexico) Americans!

This is the first Thanksgiving I have celebrated in two years (this time last year I was living in Japan), and it was the most fun one I've had in awhile. I spent the day at my boyfriend's aunt's house eating, playing games and bird watching. Birds are so cute when they rinse off in bird baths! Little sprinkler systems. And as far as people go, it's really nice when you get to that mostly-comfortable point with your significant other's family. I've been around long enough that no one forgets my name and most of any possible social anxiety has worn off.

My Thanksgiving outfit:

I know this picture is fuzzy, but I wasn't fast enough getting outside before the sun went down and I hate flash. Taken outside of my boyfriend's parents house.


I love this dress but for some reason I have only worn it a handful of times. I bought it this summer in a vintage shop in San Francisco right after I moved back to California. There are cuffs on the sleeves in the same material as the little white collar, and the whole dress is so nice and soft. Why does anyone buy newly produced clothing anymore?

Hi! Thankyou so much for your lovely comment on my blog, I felt very encouraged after reading that! I really like your dress in this post, and also your post on Mad Men. Mad men hasn't come out in Australia yet, so I can only jealously look at photos online!

This dress really is beautiful. I love the plaid, the buttons, the collar, it has so many wonderful elements!
