Blue and White Life

I blame my time in Japan with starting my blue and white dish obsession. I outfitted my kitchen with blue and white plates and bowls from the 100 yen store. I picked up tumblers, mugs, and sauce dishes at the nicer shops. As they’ve broken, or I’ve needed more dishes, I’ve had fun thrifting blue and white pieces in the US. I love having a variety of patterns and styles, all united by the color palette.

Vest, AC-3998 (cut from a thrifted jacket). Sweatshirt, Forever 21 (I washed it in cold water and laid it flat to dry and it still shrank!) Tee, Mossimo. Skirt, London Jean. Boots, Ariat. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Earrings, Delia*s. Belt, thrifted. Bag, vintage.

As fun as it is to slowly cobble together my blue and white dish collection, I am still tempted by displays like this one, at Williams and Sonoma.

I just try to remind myself that even if I had the cash to buy all the pieces new, and at once, it would not be as satisfying as my treasure hunt.

While that W&S display is pretty, I agree about the whole treasure hunt aspect! Way more satisfying for me.

Too bad about the shirt shrinkage. :( I've been buying things a bit bigger just because of that lately. Upside is I can throw them in the dryer for a bit too.
