Haunted Sister

Homemade harness, topshop shoes, everything else thrifted

I spent last Sunday being spooky in a local cemetery. It's a really peaceful, beautiful place to hang out. As you go farther back the graves get older and older, and some are so old that the engraving has worn off. The one in the fourth picture belonged to a civil war veteran. The mausoleums are so cool, but I've seen too many episodes of Buffy not to be a little creeped out by them.

I bought this little leather backpack for $3 a few weeks ago and it's become the most vital thing in my wardrobe. It's cute, practical, compact, and makes me feel like I'm going on an adventure every time I wear it! Small bags are essential to me since most of my clothes don't have pockets.

Today I'm on my way to New York! If you have any recommendations of a good place to go shopping/get shawarma in NYC, I'd love to hear them.

P.S. Thank you for all of your kind words about my last post! I got nothing but positive reactions (as I knew I would because you guys are all the best). The internet has the potential to be such a positive, powerful space and I love being reminded of that.
