it's our world, the picture-book girls

Sorry for my lack of updates, but life has been busy/it has been raining non-stop for a week. This afternoon the sun finally came out, hooray, and I was able to take outfit photos (I really don't like taking my outfit photos inside).

Apart from this blouse being one of my favourite pieces to layer, it is also one of my favourite vintage pieces that I own, in general. There are just so many ways to wear it that I can never get bored of it. Plus, it's ideal for basically any weather and I've proven that by wearing it in the spring, summer, winter and fall. If only all my clothes were like that.

Alright, I bid you all a good night. I'm turning in early tonight, like I've been doing for the past week. I feel a bit like an old woman (haha).

Wearing Guess dress, Steve Madden heels, Nordstrom tights, vintage blouse, Michael Kors watch, gifted necklace and rings.





One of my grandmother's had this ring made for me. I only received it on Sunday. Isn't it gorgeous? It's a completely original design, and it's made to look like a ruta branch. Therefore, if any of you were ever wondering about my name, ruta is actually a flower.
Pronounced Rue-tah. Lots of people pronounce it Rue-dah, and it is my biggest pet peeve.
