All in all you're just another brick in the wall

New England stone walls- Resilient structures built between 1775-1825. They are found everywhere, sometimes spanning for miles. (SOURCE)
They are home to squirrels, chipmunks, toads, snakes, slugs, spiders, and other small creatures that live in the woods.
I thought I'd try my luck and just hope not to run into any creepy crawlers here.
Shirt: Thrifted, Shorts: Hollister, Sandals: Greece
(Thank god for the flat slabs of stone, because it was not very comfortable sitting on this wall otherwise.)
So this shirt has quite a bit going on with it...
It's sort of checkered, and then it's got a bunch of other geometric designs scattered about...and then it's got colorful medallion things thrown on for extra pizzazz.
You gotta love thrift stores. I don't know where else you would find such a distinctive gem of a garment.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. I know what you mean about the stone walls- there are a CRAZZZYYY amount in the woods near my house,and the weirdest thing is that they're all perfectly straight.

    I love New England and all its quirky things :)

  2. Cute print on the shirt :)

  3. When I go to Connecticut to see my grandparents I always see those walls. I love that they are still up, it really fascinates me. Great photos & nice funky shirt!!

  4. Loving your blog, especially that shirt! You are too cute.

  5. Wow, what a fantastic shirt. So unique. You're absolutely right that I've never seen anything like it anywhere before. Great find!

  6. Agreed - thrift store finds can be quite unique and real gems!

    Just found your blog today! Keep up the great blogging!

  7. What a fun shirt! Lately I'm really attracted to pieces with a lot going on (pattern-wise). A top like this can really carry an outfit even without accessories. Just put it on with a plain bottom and boom - you've got some pizazz!
