Chicccccago!

That's the sound of my teeth chattering.. It's really cold here!!

I'm happy I get to bust out my coat after carting around with me for almost two months, but wow, I forgot what cold is like!


I bought these American Apparel Disco Pants yesterday, I had been deliberating about them for almost a year back home but the price and the thought that they'd look terrible on me held me back. 
They are however about $50 cheaper here so I gave them a try and they are surprisingly comfy and flattering.. I usually feel super self conscious in tight fitting pants but these are totally fine!

Everything else is thrifted. 

Too cold. That's enough. 

Back in our cosy warm studio, I was having a good hair day despite the winnnnd doing its very best to mess it up!


Nashville

So the other day we were in Nashville, TN. 
It was a really cool place, we explored the different neighbourhoods, ate delicious pizza and of course visited a couple of vintage stores!

I finally picked up some seamed tights (not stockings, sadly, but I have no way of wearing them at the moment anyway) from one of the stores we visited which also had a pretty great range of modern, vintage-inspired accessories.

Everything vintage/thrifted except for Leg Avenue tights. 


Eli was very happy to find a sports coat, shirt, suspenders and bowtie, all 1960's (sports coat obviously not pictured). 


Unfortunately I've been getting pretty distracted by things and forgetting to take photos of what we've been doing.. Oops!

Louisville, KY

Not too many photos/words today..




Vintage 1950's cardigan and (finally!) seamed tights by Leg Avenue. 

Everything thrifted.

New/old trousers from the Salvos! They are my perfect autumn trousers!




Atlanta

Atlanta was so much fun!

The first day there we had lunch with the lovely Amy of A Loo's Closet which was awesome!

*car park selfie!*

We didn't do all that much for the rest of the first day, so the next day we did EVERYTHING!

We went to the Georgia Aquarium, which is home to the largest aquarium in the world.


I touched a stingray and a shark! Eep!


There were so many cute animals there. I loved the penguins, turtles and otters (which I couldn't get a photo of because they move SO fast!)


Wearing a new shirt from Rag-O-Rama in Atlanta, everything else thrifted. 

Next we visited the Atlanta Underground, which was interesting/odd.. 


And finally, after a lot of deliberation, we decided to do the Coca-Cola World thing.. The girl at the ticket booth stuffed something up so we only had to pay for one ticket though.. Woo!




The last part of the exhibition is a room where you can try over 60 Coca-cola brand drinks from all over the world. My favourite ones were probably the Asian and European drinks.. We even tried the infamous Beverly drink from Italy and immediately knew we had tasted it somewhere before.. After trying it about 5 times (and laughing at everyone's expressions of disgust as they tried it themselves), we realised it tastes just like Bitters like you would have in a lemon, lime and bitters drink, just not sweet. 

With that mystery solved we collected our souvenir Coke's and left.


Even though we were full of sugar and bubbles, we had to stop at The Varsity, which was recommended to us by Amy. I'm so glad we did, it's quite the experience!



Nomnomnom!

New Orleans, day one..

Everything thrifted!


Oh my god. 

The French Quarter of New Orleans is absolutely my favourite place ever. 

I think I took a photo of every building we walked past.. This place has the most magical feeling and its unbelievably beautiful!

I'll let the photos speak for themselves, although it is a million times better in real life!
