errant stones

Photobucket

These were taken on the day I finally ventured into downtown Guadalajara... three months after moving here. In fact, I had come once before, but in hot-as-hades May, and I didn't manage to do anything on that occasion except wilt on a bench and feel sorry for myself. This time was thankfully much cooler.

I hummed and hawed over this skirt for ages, for the simple reason that it seemed pretty "'70s Mom." I decided it could be worn in a modern way, matched with the appopriate items--and promptly paired it with a blouse and bag both stolen from my mom, and both probably dating back to the '70s. So '70s mom it was, and I found a nice vintage-hued stone wall to complete the image!

Very '70s, I agree, but '70s mom? Hardly! The detailing on the blouse is very pretty. I would have swiped it, too ;)

Emily of New Moon. Oh, yes. I actually reread the Emily series a few months back. If you poke through the archives of my blog, specifically under the L.M. Montgomery label, you'll find a handful of posts featuring my love for all things Emily Starr (and Anne Shirley, of course). Every now and again, I find that Montgomery's stories are the best things to lift my spirits whenever I'm feeling down or blue. They're just, to say it simply, perfect.
