Do Not Wander

(Scarf: H&M, Sweater: Forever 21, Cardigan: I Heart Ronson, Cords: Bella Dahl, Shoes: Vintage)

There's nothing better than being snuggled up in a cozy cardigan and warm scarf in the winter. Though most of the snow has melted away where I live, it's still pretty chilly. I just got this cardigan last weekend while out shopping with my step mom. The pattern is something that I always love and it was only $12! I really couldn't pass it up. It's so soft too and I love the oversized fit it has...makes it even more cozy I think ;) 
Well my thrift trip didn't go exactly as planned, so I wasn't able to snap any photos :( But I go so often that I promise another thrift trip post isn't too far away. Also, I didn't end up winning the Joie girl contest but I wanted to thank you all so much for all the votes and support! That means way more than winning :)
I hope you all had an amazing weekend as well!

I don't usually do this

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”

I know I don't usually post things like this, but my friend has this beautiful quote on her bulletin board and I thought it was appropriate for today.
Hope you enjoy.

ALL SMILES :)

Ahh so I know this post is a little photo happy...but I GOT MY NEW CAMERA!! :) 
My boyfriend and I took a little trip to this super cool old, abandoned house that I always wanted to check out and we snapped some photos. Well more like a lot of photos. It was so much fun and I can't wait to take more and more! Sorry about the bit of inconsistency with all of the backgrounds but we were both having too much fun snapping away. This is definitely a happy friday for me! :)
I hope all is the same for you all as well. I think I will be going on another thrift trip tomorrow too, so be looking forward to another thrift post! 
HAPPY FRIDAY!

Change of Plans


Today's original plan was to receive my new fancy camera in the mail, jump with joy & probably scream with excitement a bit and also the possibility of running around my house like an idiot, and then take some outfit photos. Unfortunately, the Fedex guy decided to show up at my house when I was still at school and he needs my signature. PEWP. In other words...tomorrow I should have my camera. Which will mean more regular outfit posts again! :) 
Until then I thought I would post a little more about my shop since things have been going quickly lately! You probably recognize these looks from previous outfit posts...well these dresses are now available to buy for yourself! Grab them before someone else does!
ALSO! If you want to get to know a little more about me, check out the interview I did with IFashion Magazine, HERE!!

My kitty thought she would share her cute little feet with you guys too ;)
I thought I would change up the usual outfit post and try out black and white photos instead. These are probably the last photos that I will be taking with my current camera. So I should be posting again at the end of the week...with my new camera! :)
We got so much snow last weekend. I even had a snow day on Friday! I have pretty much been living in this coat because it matches with almost everything. Warm layers have been a must as well. I've either been throwing on a scarf or a sweater to make sure I keep warm! The weather also makes me tend to cuddle inside with a hot cup of tea (extra hot for me!), and the cup in the photo has been my favorite one to use lately. Though I love snuggling inside, it makes me miss the spring and summer so I don't have to hide my cute outfits under so many layers! I hope you all are staying warm too, those of you who have snow too :)
ALSO Remember to check out The Moptop on Facebook & LIKE!! It's easier to ask questions and interact with you guys on there :)
HAPPY MONDAY!

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday...


Hello, hello everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your weekends so far :) I officially purchased my new camera yesterday, those of you who follow me on Twitter know this already, but I am so excited!! Until then I am impatiently waiting for it to arrive in the mail. 
Anyways, I wanted to share with you all a post about me and my style on Angela's blog, The Language of Fluent Beauty! She made this really awesome graphic artwork of me and I absolutely love it! It's the first sort of artwork I have seen of me in the blogging world so it's pretty exciting :) 
I would love if you all could stop by and leave some love over there! Check it out here!
Also, I have added some more wonderful vintage items to The Moptop Vintage!
Don't forget to shop, it's always fun to online shop on the weekend..right? ;)

Bundled

(Scarf: Forever 21, Coat: Thrifted, Boots: Granny's Bootery)

Brrr! As you can see from these photos, we are currently getting a lot of snow. This has definitely been putting a cramp in my regular outfit post schedule, and my outfits really. I have mostly just been bundled up in layers to keep warm! I found this coat recently at Goodwill and I was so excited! It has such a tight, feminine fit which is so beautiful I think. It's a petite size, which makes the arms a little short but rolling them up fixed that problem. And who would have guessed how much I love green and blue together? I thought the blue tights would be a little more fun then black tights....especially since I wear black ones so often. 
I plan on ordering my new camera this weekend!! So in advance I am sorry if the outfit post are as frequent now but once I get my camera I'm sure I'll go photo happy and share lots with you all :) Thanks for being patient!
ALSO A FEW THINGS...
        1. I just wanted to give a shout out to Jessica who recently featured me on her blog, Plainer Jane. You can check it out here! And also a big thank you to Alexandra of The Circus Notebook for picking me as one of her favorite versatile blogs! Thanks so much both of you!
       2. Finally created a new Facebook page for The Moptop!! I would love for you guys to check it out and like if you want. It's also a great way to talk to all of you quicker and easier. CHECK IT OUT!
       3. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, today is the last day to vote for the Joie Girl contest on Chictopia! It would mean so much to me if you could take the time to vote and/or favorite my look :)
Thanks so much everyone!

It's been awhile since I've done an inspiration post. And since the weather has been a little crazy, it seemed like a good idea :)
