A Winter Fairytale

belt-scarf

Happy mid-week, everyone! ❤

I’m excited to showcase something I’ve been wanting for a looooooong time, and finally purchased one! I’ve always loved this vintage, winter fashion accessory and now have one of my own. First though, the outfit du jour…

I tried something different with my scarf, and that is, placing it underneath my belt. I like it!

I sure am wearing this black velvet bow a lot lately. I really like it because a) it goes with everything and b) …it’s a bow. How can you go wrong?!

Now, I did not take my new accessory with me today as part of my outfit (I only took photos with it before work to showcase it…this is more for when I know I will be outside in super cold weather for a prolonged amount of time, so it’s a special occasion accessory):

Ohhhhhh my goodness, people. Behold; a muff!

You seldom see these anymore! I’ve always thought they were so cute. I’m going with my mom tomorrow night to walk and look at Christmas lights, so it’s in perfect timing.

It’s sooooo cute!!! I love it. It’s like a dream come true to finally own one of these. It’s super soft, too (faux fur) with a fleece lining inside.

I really love vintage items – or at least, modern things that emulate vintage items.  I’ve been called an old soul on countless occasions…I feel young at heart, mind you, but ultimately an old soul just trying to find my place in the world. ❤

Perhaps I’ve been overly contemplative lately, but do you ever wonder what your place in the world is?

It’s no easy answer, for most of us. Lately though, I’ve reached pretty concrete conclusions for myself (although, things can always change). Mine would be: creating art, listening to those who need someone to talk to, inspiring people in any way, and appreciating life’s simple, beautiful moments.

Speaking of life’s simple, beautiful moments; I experienced with some nighttime photography and took this photo. It’s a bunch of dead trees, sure, but I love how creepy it looks!! There’s some beauty in decay, right?

I hope you enjoyed this rambling of a post (haha). I look forward to walking around tomorrow night and seeing the beauty Christmas has to offer with my mom. We don’t go out and do things together all that often, so it’ll be nice!! ❤

Take care! Until next time. 🙂
