Coral & Leopard

Goodness, love me some Spring weather. You can just dress perfectly when it’s 70 degrees with a light breeze and plenty of sunshine. A great pencil skirt, bare legs, and a nice little cardigan. #ideal

Wearing Hats Part 3: Peach Petal Hat

Hat Number Two: Vintage Peach Petal Hat
Sometimes I wonder: Is this too much?  

I wonder that with a lot of things. Flourishes in my handwriting, exclamation points in my typing, vintage-ness in my outfits?
I think:
 Oh, goodness, well, maybe I’m doing things wrong. Maybe it’s all just too much.
Maybe I need to get rid of flourishes, exclamation points, and vintage-ness. 

Or, maybe, just maybe,
The real questions are:
Do I have enough love in my heart? 
Light in my eyes?
Happiness in the morning?
And when the answer to those questions are YES, the answers to the other questions are NO, because the flourishes/exclamation points/vintage-ness are outpourings of the love/light/happiness. 
I think that’s a beautiful thing.

Remember that Day…

Remember that day I accidentally poured orange juice over my cereal instead of milk? 
Yeah, no, I don’t remember that either…
Remember that day I woke up and inadvertently dressed like the Swedish flag?
That day was today. 

Something Swedish has been on my mind for awhile…and my subconscious must be picking up on it…

Sending me into my closet for every gold & blue piece I own…

…even turning a dress into a skirt… 

and finding that my ring and fingernails complete the picture.
I may not be blonde, but I sure am Swedish!
{sometimes I act blonde and pour orange juice over my cereal instead of milk. so that counts, right?}

Ladylike Lace

Someone told me I looked like I should be walking down the streets of Paris in this outfit.
Sounds good to me! Laduree and the Louvre and L’Opera Paris are all missing me. 

Until then, I can walk around the streets of my New England town and say, “Oui,” and “Non,” and shake my head a lot. That seemed to be how the Parisians do things. Oui?

Fingernails a’la TiffaMade! Gah I love them. So like the colors of the macarons at Laduree.
{darling website; do visit it. and, of course, the Paris tea room is stunning, too}
For my hair, I tried one large victory roll on the back. It’s sort of like a reverse Gibson tuck. 
Maybe it’s a Natalie tuck. Or a Natalie roll. It’s a Natalie Tuck & Roll. 
There.
Sounds so sophisticated, non
😉

Favorite Ever

This is my favorite outfit I’ve EVER blogged, in the past 3 or so years of documenting my outfits. It feels SO me, so completely me. And I die over these colors, and the textures. Doesn’t it just scream “luxe”?! Best part: the most expensive thing in this outfit was my vintage purse, which rang in at $12 (and could use a good shining up, sheesh, Natalie)

Filigree earrings. Gold buttons up the back. Stripes. Patent leather grid. Eyelet.Woven gold and silver ballet flats. There’s texture and interest to spare in this outfit (No, maybe not to spare. Don’t take any of it away!) Also: Mom is here to visit!

Easter Sunday

I really love Easter. Reaaaaalllllllllllllly love it. 
And I love the fact that my boyfriend gave me an Easter basket that is fit for a six-year-old. And I am totally as excited about it as a six-year-old would be…check yes.
Also, I’m totally excited that JESUS IS ALIVE! I love that fact even more.
