There are several reasons why I love Sundays. One of the biggest reasons are weekly flea markets. I cannot think of a better way to spend a hangover Sunday than perusing what is basically a giant thrift store. I love the handmade treasures, the antiques that you only thought exsisted on eBay, and of course, the clothing. Oh the clothing. It is hipster heaven; I have never seen so many perfectly frayed, high waist denim shorts in my life. And I bought a pair for $15. A pair identical to those sold in stores for upwords of $50.

If you are looking for anything for your home, I recommend checking out your local flea market first. Even if you don’t think your asthetic includes rustic, paint chipped night stand, just wait until you ultimately find the perfect, unique piece. We got a night stand this weekend and I am excited to find more treasures for our new home together.

Can I get a high five for finding this gem of a Free People dress at Crossroads? Sure it has loose threading and the bottom gets caught on the zippers of my boots, but its Free People and so worth it. It is probably more of a winter dress, but I had to wear soon after I found it. I am hoping to squeeze a couple more wears out of it before I would be getting heat stroke walking around in the Los Angeles heat. Also, I cannot say that I won’t rule out cranking up the air conditioner and just wearing it at home.

Also, new bag!

Ugly Mug was so impressed by the Melrose Trading Post that he wants to go every Sunday. That is a Sunday routine that I can definitely get behind. I would also like to take up the practice of brunching. Yes, it is just a fancy way to say that you slept in and have decided to eat a hearty breakfast at lunch time, but it is just the right amount of pretentious that I could use in my life.

Do you have weekend traditions?

  7. I would love to roam around a flea market! I have no idea if there are even any close to where I live without having to go into the city…
    Anyway, you look so awesome in this maxi dress!

  8. Ha,Ha..I LOVE Sundays too, always been my favorite day of the week. I laugh because I was so hungover today and then realized it isn’t Sunday, it’s Tuesday!!!!!! Don’t judge, we celebrated Memorial Day on the actual day is all! Sounds like an amazing way to spend a Sunday and I am all about brunch..but I am pretentious like that 😉
