Click-clack.





I don't know why, but I love the sound of heels on a wood floor in an empty room. It's slightly creepy and just a tad bit exciting.
Today I cleaned out our bedroom completely, scrubbed the icky mold from the walls, and threw out the little bits and bobs that succumbed to it. Now it's empty, with a cold dank feeling and echo with every step and sound.
But good news is, we're going to start moving tomorrow! Yayyyy! Honestly I think I enjoy moving a bit. I get to really look through all the stuff I have and narrow it down to just the good stuff. And then unpack and find a new place for everything, it's one of those odd things I love doing, like sorting socks, or dusting shelves.

So this week may be a little sparse on Vixen Vintage, since I'm not sure how we'll be as far as internet is concerned, but I'll try and post pictures as often as I can!

Little note: This is my version of sweat pants and tennis shoes, because I don't own any! No temptation for that kind of thing if I don't have that kind of thing. I've found this little cotton 30s dress to be comfortable, easy to wear, and acceptable for running errands.

Ooooo, I'm so excited!!!

I think a dress is waaaay more comfortable than a pair of sweatpants any day

Love, love, love your outfit -- what an inspiration to us all! I too loved moving when I did not have a huge house of things to pack. It gives you a good reason to really weed out things that you don't need/use anymore and then you have the fun of finding everything a new home! Wishing you a quick, uneventful move.

Good luck with your move! Love your running errands wear ;)

Lovely cleaning-wear! I also like moving, in one way. I like planning the new place, sort through my stuff and throw away things. And then to find a new order in a new place. I'm not a huge fan of packing och carrying, though...
Good luck with your move!

I also love moving. It feels great to get the chance to reorganize my life and feel a sense that everything I own is something I need.

I feel the exact same way about walking in big rooms wearing high heels. I want to focus on those click sounds with every stride.
I love your dress (I'm the same way about sweatpants, I've done drywall in dress clothes).
Best wishes for you move! ;)

What a cute dress! Hm, maybe I should get rid of that my of sweat pants, I fall into the lazy trap way to often...Hope the move goes well, good luck!

As usual, you look adorable!

I share your secret love of moving. There is something so satisfying about revisiting items which have been packed away, about the purge, about finding a new home for all of your treasures... Congrats, good luck, and have fun!

I'm totally with you on loving moving, sorting socks and dusting shelves. There's nothing I love more than cleaning and organising! Hehe :)

And you look gorgeous. My 'sweat pants' equivalent is very similar. Honestly, I don't know why people wear sweat pants - it's easy to be just as comfortable, and to look good too!

Have fun with your move :)

i like your policy of no sweats! i myself have succumbed to temptation lately. not so much with sweats, really, but i've been wearing denim and tshirts a lot. your version of comfy-errand-wear is pretty and quite inspiring.

best of luck with your move!

what a wonderfully high ceiling!!! I agree about the clincking of heels in an empty room. it is a bit odd in a way! I love it though too. hehe. Happy decorating!
