This is the first weekend in a long time that Daniel and I haven't had any "official plans", so that actually made it pretty exciting. We made an impromtu visit to Philly yesterday to visit some of my favorite shops, and I really lucked out. I had grand plans to take a ton of photos of our little journey, but unfortunately I forgot to load my camera with my SD card so I had to take these pictures after we got home. I found this amazing vintage flannel cape at "Vagabond" on North Street. It was love at first site... I know it doesn't really match the outfit underneath it, but I actually thought that made it more fun and livened it up a bit. I also got this amazing pink and yellow aztec dress that I actually discovered this past summer- and it was sitting on the sale rack in my size- half off! Good things come to those who wait ;)
I had so much fun wearing around my floral crown, it's sort of my way to "rebel" against the chilly weather (come on Spring, where did you go??). And this week was a little crazy and a bit of a reawakening for me personally. I took a look inward and realized that I felt a little stifled, like I was holding back parts of myself. So this weekend I just went all out, wore exactly what I wanted to; and didn't worry about what other people thought :)
Outfit Details: Headband: H&M, Cape: Vagabond, vintage Necklace: Clothes in the Past Lane

This weekend I have been working on some new pieces for my jewelry collection, wooden moth and butterfly necklaces made from vintage illustrations. I've been taking the wooden pendants and drilling holes in them with my new "drill master" kit. I am not the best with tools so it was a little intimidating at first but I think I've gotten the hang of it. Later we will be picking up chains so I can make them into necklaces, I can't wait to post the finished products!!
Oh, I am just so hoping for spring to come back. The cold weather has really taken a toll on me. My skin is dry and itchy, I'm tired of layering, and I miss the sunshine. I am hoping that it will only take another week to get to the REAL spring weather. But until then, I will continue to dress in my bright sunny colors, they make me smile and they remind me that sunnier days are ahead! And flowers, oh I can not wait to see all the beautiful flowers come back! I love when the colors of nature return :)
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend,
