My Valentine

Gosh, don't you just wish that quirky little valentines such as these were still nestled on the shelves of stores, in lieu of the glittery Hannah Montana and Twilight ones that seem to be everywhere you turn? How charming it would be to receive one of these little gems!

This morning, I was awoken by breakfast in bed and Lilies being delivered to my doorstep! Their magnificent smell is just permeating through my apartment, and it kind of makes me wish I always had fresh flowers around.

Justin and I have been together for five magical years now, which is somewhat hard to believe, it all went by so quickly! I simply couldn't ask for a more wonderful friend either, because you don't come by nerdy boys who are old souls, appreciate the past, love silent films and enjoy spending countless hours rummaging through antique shops very often. I think I'll hang on to this one forever!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Spring Inside.

Goodness gracious, Pennsylvania has certainly been getting the treatment from Mother Nature the past couple of days! Just as I thought the winter doldrums were making their way out the door, we receive a heaping 2 feet of snow and counting! This morning, I opened my curtains to discover our vehicles half buried, and not to mention my bare feet having an impromptu cuddle with a blanket of snow when I opened my front door. Yikes!

After sighing a spectacular sigh, I decided to stop being such a sourpuss and take a few wintry outfits shots. That is, until I realized that everyone and their brother was outside shoveling their walkways, and I still feel incredibly silly taking any sort of photo while several people are around. Especially when I'm clad in a dress, making awkward and goofy poses.

Consequently, I ended up hiding away in my bedroom all afternoon, choosing springtime outfits and snapping a few photos of those!

Outfit #1
Pink lace drop-waist dress: Goodwill
Blue Blazer: Via Strawberry Koi Vintage
Antique Pocket Watch: An heirloom from my great grandfather
Brown ankle bow heels: Thrifted
Vintage hat: Local antique shop
Suitcase: Antique shop
Needlepoint purse: Antique shop

Outfit #2
Navy blue polka dotted 1940's dress: Thrifted
Red hat box: Local antique shop

Outfit #3
Cream cable knit cardigan: Thrifted
Baby blue ruffle neck sleeveless blouse: Via Q's Daydream Vintage
Cream skirt: Forever21
Blue suitcase: Thrifted

And the song of the post is David Bowie's "Changes", which has been stuck in my head for what feels like forever! But that's alright, I adore the chorus.
