Sailors Delight

Despite the forecast predicting winter weather for the next few days, I can't stop looking at these lovely nautical inspired spring looks:

Anthropoligie (the cute chambray top is also dear creatures!)

Which leads me to another thought: vintage inspired swimsuits...I need to keep reminding myself that it's still winter!!!!

Snow Day #3

For Snow Day #1 and 2 I stayed in mostly besides the grocery store and coffee. I was working on a cake which also meant I had to stay in. Today was an optional workday but after being inspired by a few fellow teachers' statuses on facebook I decided I wasn't going in. Instead, I had a lovely afternoon out which started off with my favorite lunch at Hap's.

Then I wondered down to the antique store and picked up these little lovelies:


They even seem to shine up my worn out black flats that I was wearing to run around downtown in. I found a few other great pieces that I'm going to be working on transforming coming up soon.

My facebook friend had said she was going to go see a movie on her optional workday so I decided to do the same and was pleasantly surprised to see that "The Young Victoria" was playing in town! I'm a sucker for period films and especially ones that have been nominated for an Oscar for best costumes. I wasn't disappointed! She was is a bit of a fashion icon after all being that she set the trend for brides to wear white wedding gowns. And the hair accessories...sigh...

Although I'm sure it will be back to work tomorrow, I could really get used to having a day like today more often. Once a month wouldn't be too much to ask would it?
