Simply Whimsical

Full-shot Close-up1 Hair Shoes Close-up2

This fanciful garden is not in bloom yet, but the entrance gate still made a fine place to pose. Something about the slightly rusty ornate iron gate made me feel as though I was walking into a slightly magical place, or should be wearing an elaborate gown fit for a medieval princess… maybe next time. For today, a simple dress and cardigan combo was fitting enough.

Easter “Bonnet”

Close-up2 Full-shot Close-up SweaterHat

I hope all of you who celebrated Easter yesterday had a lovely day! If there is ever a day to wear a hat, it’s definitely Easter, so naturally I incorporated a nice springy one into my outfit. It may be a stretch to call it an “Easter bonnet,” but it has such a nice ring to it, so just play along. I told myself (and you all) that I was taking a few days off for vacation and wouldn’t post until Wednesday, but who was I kidding, I just can’t stay away! I also discovered some beautiful places for photos in my “vacation location,” so it would be such a waste to not take advantage of the background potential, right? Maybe I’m just bad at vacations.

Show Time

I’m off to see the “Stars on Ice” show tonight! The Olympics really got me loving skating again, and I can’t wait to see what all the fabulous skaters will do! An ice show is kind of a weird thing to dress for, so I went with sort of a “festival” style look… I managed to wear the leggings from the AG skating outfit though, so that makes it appropriate, right? On a side note, I’m going out of town for an extended Easter break, but I will be back Wednesday! I may squeeze in an Easter post, but if you don’t hear from me, I’m probably too comatose from chocolate to feel like getting out for pictures.

A Brief Wintermission

Full-shot Hair Skirt Close-up Shoes

Apparently the spring decided to take a little “intermission,” and allow winter to come back overnight with a fresh dumping of snow. I resolved to stay away from windows and remain in denial of this vicious attack on spring, and thankfully found that the sun had conquered and melted the snow by the afternoon. This is why I took advantage of the surprise beach day on Monday- you never know when winter might come back to haunt you. Long live the spring!

On the Beach

Full-shot Close-up1 Lounging Sandals On the Sand

I took a 2 hour beach vacation today because it was in the 70′s, which is my beach temperature threshold. It was more of a “lounge on the sand” kind of day than a swimming day with the clouds and wind, but considering it’s only mid-April, I will take that for the Northeast. Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll be able to break out the swimsuits!

Weekday Excursion

I took a trip to see the Yankee Candle Village store yesterday, and it was quite an experience! There were tons of beautiful displays, themed shops, and even a life-size Christmas village where it was magically snowing! My favorite spot was where they were doing demonstrations of beeswax candle-making. I love getting a glimpse of historical life, so it was wonderful to see how people used to make candles, and the demonstrator was even dressed in historical clothing to go along with the setting. It was a pleasant excursion indeed!

Caramel and Pastel

Full-shot Hair Close-up Purse and Boots Close-up2

I wouldn’t have thought mixing caramel colored leathers with pastels would look that great, but it was working for me today! We are closing in on Easter, so all the pastel colored pieces in my wardrobe are jumping out at me, but it’s good to break it up a bit with more saturated colors to avoid looking like an actual Easter egg. There is a time and place for tacky Christmas attire, but I have a really hard time justifying tacky Easter clothes. I’m all for frilly dresses and hats, but things like THIS just make me sad.

A 50′s Feeling

Full-shotClose-up Bag Shoes Hair

I was definitely feeling a bit of a 50′s vibe today with my pearls, pony-tail, and pedal-pusher pants. The outfit was mostly inspired by the bag though. This cute little tote bag was a gift from my grandma, who passed it along thinking it looked like something I might find useful (she was right). The beading design does remind me a little bit of a Christmas tree, but I love the colors of the beads and the fabric seems like it could almost pass for beach-y, so we’re saying it’s a spring bag (just go with it).
