As noted earlier, Patrick and I finally bought a car! Originally we had plans to take it to the drive-in this weekend, but rain prevented that from happening – maybe next weekend! However we still decided to go out for a nice country drive down Highway 99 to McMinnville (also known as Oregon’s wine country, though I couldn’t care less about wine), stopping at various antique shops and thrift stores along the way.
While I didn’t find much (seriously, I bought a purse, that was it), it was still a successful trip in getting us acquainted with our new car.
These photos have really convinced me I need to add darts to this Scully I thrifted when in Austin last year. I knew it was on the big side when I bought it, but the color was just too marvelous to pass up on, as it is my favorite! Meanwhile I’m finally brave enough (yes, I still struggle with wearing some things) to wear something I’ve wanted to add to my wardrobe for a few years now, string ties. They are wonderfully western, but also elegant in a way, and are an easy way to “dress up” a western outfit. I just got the saddle ring back from the jewelers, and it is one of the few things I bought during our trip to California last month. While it was pricey, I knew I’d be kicking myself if I didn’t buy it, and now it’s one of my favorite things to wear.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

You are too cute for words! 😀
I can see why you had to have the shirt; that color is marvelous on you. I’m so short that I pretty much have to alter anything I buy ready made. It’s a hassle, but the results are worth it.
Such a cute outfit, and a beautiful colour on you. xxx
The string tie surprised me – I thought for sure you made it. It’s really sweet and looks really great with this outfit.
What perfect scenery for this outfit post. Shirt , jacket, and those jeans are great!
I love string ties! I’m so glad to see someone wearing them!
This outfit is so fun! Congrats on the car and let me know how those darts turn out… I’m not much of a seamstress.

Your life will change with a car for sure!!!! Lovely tie!
Awesome style, all of it! I love the jacket – will always be a classic item for the wardrobe!
Gosh, I just found your blog and I love it! Such a cute outfit 🙂
I think you and I are the only two women on all of the Earth that do not care about wine LOL! It’s nice to see I’m not just the weirdo outsider on that hahah 🙂
I just ADORE that western shirt, Janey! I have been looking for one for quite some time now, but to no avail. It’s either too expensive, too small, or too bland/generic. But I’m not just going to buy the first one I see either; I’ve certainly become more of a vintage connoisseur over the past 12-14 months than I was. I went from buying anything if I even “kinda” liked it and it was in my size to having a list of things I hope to add to my wearable museum and spending time actually looking for “THE” piece. I actually find it more fun and rewarding! I hope to be showing off my own fab western blouse in the near future! And of course, it goes without saying – you look wonderful! Certainly a style inspiration 🙂
You look lovely, and the scenery is GORGEOUS! I’m glad you’re enjoying the new car. And yes, I do see why you might want to add darts to the shirt. It’s a fantastic color though, wow.
