leather + cerulean + winter white.

this blouse has an especially sweet story behind it-- while shopping one of my favorite local vintage shops, i had to narrow down the pieces to go home with me.  the cutie-pie shop girl knew i was conflicted, but i ultimately made the decision to leave this soldier {aka blouse} behind.  a few days later i arrived at work to find the top waiting for me with a sweet "surprise!" note from the girl helping me at the boutique {shout out to laura}!!  who does that?  i'm telling you, random acts of kindness go such a l-o-n-g way and i know that i will cherish this beaut for many years to come. . .

i made it safely back to arkansas, but am still nursing my Altitude Design Summit hangover.  an Alt round up is being drafted but until it's ready to be released, here's a sneak peek of what i wore to the winter wonderland party on thursday night. . .
