Back so soon?

So, it turns out that very few people in my daily life want to talk endlessly about thrifted chambray or DIY jewelry. What's up with that?

In other words... I miss having an outlet to share the pastimes I love with people who have similar interests. Rather than re-start Feathers & Freckles, I've decided to start a new blogging adventure. I have created a new blog, and it will be much different (I'm dramatic, it's only slightly different).

There will be no sponsors, no set schedules, and no looking back. I am going to focus on crafting, thrifting, and recipes. Oh, and you know there will be gifs...

I hope you'll follow along with Ginger Snaps!

With much sadness, and admittedly even more relief, I've decided to end Feathers & Freckles.

When I started this blog, I told myself I'd quit the moment it stopped being rewarding and fun. I've slowly felt more and more burdened by my blog, and I'm sad (and proud!) to admit that I've outgrown it. I'll always thrift, craft, take photos, and get dressed - but I'd like to get back to just enjoying those things.

I never like to 'quit' anything without reflecting on why I started. I started Feathers & Freckles as a way to fine-tune my style and make myself more confident and excited about getting dressed. It's done just that and more. In the end though, clothing and fashion have never been a very important part of my life and I don't want them to become that.

I've learned a lot over the past two years, and I've loved interacting with people from all over the world with similar interests and senses of humor. Thank you for your support, feedback, and sweet words. It's been a pleasure getting to know you and letting you get to know me, and if you'd like to keep in touch please feel free to email me! Also, I could never give up Instagram, so if you want to keep up with my life & thrift finds, you can always find me there.

Thanks for a fun ride!

Cream of the Crop





 Thrifted skirt, Forever 21 topShop Ethereal necklace c/o, Madewell tote, Jeffrey Campbell wedges

Last week I did something totally out of character... I went into Forever 21 and left with a crop top. This was then followed by doing something totally in character... going home and asking myself why I just bought a crop top from Forever 21.

I'm definitely warming up to it, but I'm still a little weird about exposing my belly button in public and if it shrinks any shorter I'll be passing it down to my cat. So, I just have to avoid any situation that requires I lift my arms and I can never wash it.
