Outfits: Orange Crush

Oh hello there, 

It's been a wee while since I've been around these parts...and I do miss it.  It's not intentional though, my poor computer bit the dust, and well that kind of makes writing and reading blog posts a bit of a challenge.  I will fully admit that I have been eating up all the extra time on my hands to enjoy the sun and more time outside with the fam.  However, I have managed to raid my Mr.'s computer for the day to bring you a post over at Flock Together.  March with me this way to read more...

I'll be back again soon, but until then I wish you a gorgeous Easter weekend.

Love Bunches,

I did tell you that I adore poking around old places, right?  Anyhow, another afternoon saw me out and about, this time with my vintage styling-blogging gal pal Kayla of Fairytale of a Vintage Wallflower, and boy did we uncover a fascinating little gem in the next town over!

I've been friends with Kayla for awhile over Instagram...(imagine that!), however this was the first time we were able to meet for reals in person and it's kind of just awesome possum to find another human being who lives in the same town as you do and loves thrifting, vintage, blogging, taking photos, etc, know what I mean, so naturally it was a match made in blogger heaven...ha!  

Just before we hit the Thrift, we drove by this old dilapidated train station that apparently used to be the heart of the city when it built in the late 1800s.  After it shut down in the 70s, a restaurant/club...(see the colorful train car in the back) was added on.  How I would love to just see how booming this little station once was back in the day.  Anyhow, this is how it once look:

Interesting, right?  So that's just about all for now.  I do hope to poke around this little station once again, but for now, I will enjoy my second cup of coffee before the laundry calls my name.

Wishing you a good one!

Hello there, 

I'm headed back to ye olde hometown this weekend for some family bday celebrations and I cannot wait to pack my bags and hit the road, Jack.  I'm just a family kind of gal, ya know?  So naturally after this very long month of being busier than a bumble bee, it will be very nice to relax and spend some quality time with my parents and sis and even get some of mom's home cooking if only for a couple days.  

As for me and my wee little family, well we celebrated the one warm evening that came our way with a big cup of italian ice ...and yes, that one warm evening was truly something to celebrate after what seems to be the longest winter ever.  I'm truly looking forward to seeing plenty blooms and leaves on the trees as I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an actual spring of warm weather.  Can you see my excitement as I even dressed in green from head to toe?  Actually it was part of a monochrome outfit challenge that the Flock Together gals took part in last week...I chose to go the route of Kermit the Frog obviously.  Did I ever mention that I so badly wanted to marry Kermit as a little girl?  The ironic thing is that the Mr.'s voice actual sounds a bit like Kermit the Frog, I kid you not - so I guess you could say I married my Kermit, ha!

Have one fine weekend darlings!

Sweater: c/o Chicnova
Hat, Blouse, Brooch, Skirt: Vintage, thrifted
Bag: Vintage, belonged to my Oma
Shoes: Modcloth (sale)

It's Monday and I've had one weekend chock full of gal palling around downtown, grabbing some yummy Indian food that I've had quite the hankering for lately, thrifting to my lil ol heart's content, and hockey-gaming the night away.  Now it's time for a little r&r!  

Though the closest downtown to where I live really isn't much of a city at all, it does boast some of the prettiest old buildings that are sadly falling apart or in the process of being knocked down.  I couldn't help but be smitten with this old Engel Building across the street from where we ate the other day.  Half of it was an old dress shop and the other half was completely demolished in the back.  Apparently the city is preserving the facade of this old gem.  Anyhoo, I'm just a tad obsessed with old forgotten places if you couldn't tell already, ha!  I would just adore seeing places like this completely restored back to their old beauty.  

So with that, I'm off to grab a second cup of joe.  I wish you a happy week ahead darlings!

Hello hello again, 

I gotta say, after a straight few weeks of being far too cold to venture outdoors, it felt rather sweet to put on a dress again and go coat free to boot.  Spring is in the air and I am beginning to feel it.   I've been in a bit of a rut lately stylistically speaking because it seems that with the frigid temps, all I want to do is put on the biggest, coziest sweater and slouchy hat I can find, throw on some leggings (yes, I did say leggings) and boots and call it a day.  Not that there's anything wrong with this, but I always feel more myself in a dress.  So bring on the warmer spring air.  I am more than ready.  I'm sure most of you are too, right?

Anyhow, it's been incredibly busy as of late.  I know, I know...this is the song I've been singing in every post this month, but it's just so true!  With warm weather comes new places to adventure, new projects to take on, and new memories to uncover.  Within the next few weeks I'm hoping to sign up to take lessons for my bass guitar...I can play, but I want to get better at it, finish a new song I've been working on (I've been writing music since I was 16), and complete a DIY coat rack for the baby's bedroom.  I know typing this all out will give me the kick in the pants that I've been needing as the winter months have brought out the evil slacker in me.

So that's just that!  What new things are you planning to take on with this fresh new season approaching?

Love Bunches,
