Cheekwood Botanical Gardens Scarecrow Walk

Since its Halloween I thought I'd post some pictures from when I was down in Nashville last. In Chicago, it was beginning to feel like fall but down in Nashville is was a cool 80 degrees this "fall" day. We still pretended it was fall and headed the the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, a really beautiful spot with sprawling gardens, a historical old mansion, and a festive scarecrow walk.


 Playing with the 'crows and scarin the 'crows.....
 Enjoying the views outside the mansion.

Fun Factory

I had not been thrifting all summer, so I was overdue for a visit. All I found was this t-shirt in the men's section that I cut the sleeves off of. I figure I'll get a few wears out of it...
Thrifted tee. J Brand Maria high-rise skinnies. Born sandals. Vintage bracelets. 
Necklace made by myself. 

Thinking about making a few more of these necklace and similar earrings.

Michigan Ave Night

The other night I met my mom, aunt, and a family friend in from Norway downtown for dinner. Though I'm just blocks away from Michigan Ave I don't shop there all that much, but it's always a treat to see the city at night and walk along Michigan Ave....

My mom looked beautiful this night, as she always does. I snapped this pic of her at Monte Blanc.
