Every year the adorable little small town that I call home, puts on this Street Market downtown. It’s essentially a giant garage sale, and it’s fabulous. It has been several years since I have attended the market, so today, my dearest mother and I decided it was about time that we went. We wandered through alleys and streets lined with tables full of old treasures. Treasures being a very subjective word of course, but any place where you can buy both fine china and a Thighmaster is gold to me.
After grazing the market we decided to pop into a local antique shop and take a look. The book pictured above is a very old math textbook I found. I didn’t understand anything that was written in there, but I have an obsession with old books, so I flipped through it and gave it a good sniff anyway. (I’m not the only one who loves the smell of old books, right?)
Since we were walking everywhere, I went with a more comfortable look. I am wearing an Oxford button-up from Simons, a lovely trench coat from The Gap, a pair of ripped American Eagle jeans, and Sam Edelman flats.
Once again, it’s clear that I have a thing for coats. This trench is fantastic because I can easily wear it year-round. I got it this spring and it has definitely earned its keep.
All in all it was a really nice day. Turns out small town living isn’t all that bad.
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, too! Here’s to another great week ahead.
See you soon,
