Did you Button up Today?

old mossimo flats/vintage and old buttons/thread in peach
I love old buttons.
So what's a girl  to do but put them on stuff?
The lazy girl's way:
 Pick a predominate thread color and use it throughout.
Plus, they can be reused..
Maybe I'l find some at the antique mall.
My next culprit-espadrilles...
Have a terrific week!

Cute. I have resigned myself to constant sneaker wearing and will have to find a way to embellish the laces of my Chucks.... hmmm maybe fancy buttons on the first row of laces????
