This weekend it was sunny, but not warm, and definitely not as warm as it might look in these pictures. I was too stubborn to bring out the black tights, wanting to wear things that were halfway spring-ish instead. After we took these pictures I threw on a coat and boots to go eat veggie burgers at FarmBurger and then brave the always crazy (but good) farmer’s market. It was sunny and cheerful the whole weekend, though I stayed inside for most of it, baking, reading, Downton Abbey-watching . . . I didn’t get much done, but it’s ok, because this week I’m going to try to catch up on just about everything I’ve been slacking on. Running, email writing, blog/work stuff, and most important but most scary of all: go to the DMV to get a new license. (I finally got my name changed last week, a good three months after I ought to have done it, ugh).
So nothing interesting to write about my weekend at all, but I did like this outfit because I like wearing longer skirts lately and because I’ve worn this blouse Jamie got me lots of times since I got it but not on my blog yet. The shoes are practically flat, and I think I had Hannah of Foxtail and Fern in mind when I bought them, because she finds the best vintage Ferragamos. These may look sensible, but they dig into the back of heels still, which explains why I had to change into less sensible but more comfortable boots when we went to the farmer’s market. And the necklace is one of my new favorites. I’ve loved the jewelry line Natalie Joy ever since Natalie collaborated with Anja on a gorgeous lookbook, so when Natalie offered to send me a necklace I was really excited. This particular necklace is one from the spring line and has a tiny little dandelion seed in it (though if you’re looking for one similar that’s in the shop right now this one is pretty close). Natalie’s stuff is so good and modern, and would go just perfectly with the clothes in my dream wardrobe that I’d like to overthrow my current one for. More grown-up, for sure.
PS, is anyone else as excited as I am about the 4th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race?!
