Farewell to Maude

Here it is: the sign that the road trip is officially over. We sold Maude the Mercedes yesterday, and I had to take some pictures with her to say goodbye. It was a little sad, she was the third lady on our road trip, and source of endless fun. She is most definitely the best car I've ever had and I'll miss her fancy features. Normally I would be a good blogger and black out the license plate, but she has a brand new one now so I don't need to worry about that.

Loafers: Thrifted, Skirt: Thrifted, Lion Belt: Vintage, Shirt: H&M

I kind of like how over exposed these ones are, it gives you an idea of how sweltering the sun was (at 6:00 at night...New Jersey, what is your deal?).

And what would a farewell be without the requisite side view mirror pic?

Farewell to Maude

I bought this skirt at a Goodwill in New Jersey, and I'm having a little quandary about it. The best bit of the skirt is the bottom, which has large peacocks printed all the way around it. However, the skirt is mid calf length, and I don't really think I'm ballsy enough to embrace that style, especially since all it makes me think of is the outfits my mother and all of her friends used to wear in the mid 90s...they were big fans of Laura Ashley. And mom jeans. But that's another story. Perhaps I should just embrace my inner 90s, because according to the New York Times the Elaine Benes style is back, and let's face it, I do love Seinfeld. Anyway, I pinned up the skirt because I love it short, but I couldn't bring myself to cut off the bottom. Any ideas?

I am back in California, after some slightly rash decision making (aka I decided on Thursday I wanted to go home and was back at 9am on Friday morning; thank you air miles!) I have arrived safe and sound and ready to eat delicious farmer's market food, hang out in some weather that is far from the obscenely hot NYC heat, and see my friends and family.

What is your favorite part of visiting hom

Aw, it's always a bummer to say goodbye to a car. When my car Harold broke down for the last time, it felt like saying goodbye to an old buddy!
