It's Finally Spring Time!!!

Finally!!!!! Some warmer weather has hit Michigan!!!! I can't even begin to express how excited I am about this!!! This winter, I have complied quite a large new spring/summer wardrobe which I am so giddy about!

This is one such outfit. It is a handmade vintage knock-off Swirl dress in the sweetest daisy novelty print. I just love red and yellow together! The bakelite I am wearing in the post will be shown sometime next week, as I am preparing a bakelite post.
Hope you're experiencing some lovely spring weather too!!

So About That Blogging Break....

I didn't realize that it really has been three weeks since I blogged! The end of this semester of grad school was busy and difficult; but the good news is -- it's over!!! Now I can get back to sharing my outfits and my vintage finds! Even though I haven't had time to write here, I have been thinking about some fun stuff to blog about. :)

On another note, above is what I wore to church on Easter Sunday. I bought this set in the dead of winter at this great resale shop that has a small and super affordable vintage section. The dress and jacket set (which is lined in the same fabric as the dress and came with its belt!) was only $24 -- seriously one of my best finds ever!

I woke up kinda late on Easter morning and didn't have time to really put on much make-up or really style my hair. Speaking of hair, I am bored with mine and need a change. I am thinking of dying it red, but I would like a new style too. Any ideas?

It's Still Kinda Cold Here.....

This past weekend, Jesse and I ventured into the city (Detroit that is) to enjoy an evening at a cute little bar and grille. One of the best parts of the evening was selecting music off the jukebox, which was filled with lots of 60s - 80s music. It was a nice change of pace to hang out at a place that doesn't play top 40.

Since it was barely 40 degrees outside, I had to do the tights and boots route with my outfit. While I am glad I embraced this look this winter, I am ready for the warmer days ahead, where all that is needed is a dress and tennis shoes and we can walk places. :)
