I hope you all are enjoying this lovely Sunday! I enjoyed a nice church service, ate Cadbury eggs for breakfast, and now I’m out having coffee with my sister and enjoying the fresh, spring air! And will probably eat more chocolate later.
Those rings up there are actually cupcake toppers! The dress is from Forever 21. 💙
For some reason this past week, I’ve watched Pretty in Pink (1986) like three times. I forgot how much I really love the movie and it’s definitely a favorite of mine. I admire Andie’s unique fashion sense and my favorite part is at the end, when she tells her dad before leaving for the prom that she’s going by herself. That, and her prom dress was absolutely killer!!!
I’m definitely on team Duckie, just to be clear. He always supported Andie’s “volcanic ensembles” and was genuinely a sweetheart, with a really cute personality AND cute teeth, no less. 💜
HOWEVER. I still can’t help swooning over Steff’s dreamy 80’s hair…*sigh*
I just now realized I am literally almost as old as this movie, haha!! Now back here in 2019…welp, here I am in a pink frock with a bell-shaped-sleeve blouse that just so happened to match the dress color, perfectly! I love when that happens.
Good times, people. What would I do without my eccentric and fun outfits???? I’d be pretty bored, to make an honest guess. I love putting together “volcanic ensembles”. 😉
These two outfits I recently wore, are a very very modern twist inspired by Edwardian fashion. I’ve always adored the fashion from that time period (the years were between the 1890’s to about 1914).
Lace and gloves are a delicate combination I really admire. Taking from clothing and accessories I already have, I came up with a super pink ensemble! The pink lace top and cardigan are from Amazon; the skirt is a recent purchase from Forever21.
I made the red choker myself; I simply glued a rhinestone onto the elastic red ribbon. ❤️
Onto the next outfit; the above photo is another example of a signature Edwardian blouse. I did my own take on it using a vintage brooch I own and simply pinned it onto my blouse for an instant Edwardian flair!!
Overall, I really love how they each turned out!! My creativity has been coming forth very strongly lately through fashion. Which isn’t anything new for me, but with some additions lately like wearing gloves and adding vintage brooches.
Last weekend, I went for a nice walk with a friend of mine, where I was able to truly appreciate spring in full bloom! 🌸 I even wore my springy lace gloves, so you know I meant business…
I love going for walks during spring, because my curious inner child comes out to play. I love looking at the plants, and observing the behavior of creepy crawlers I spot along the way!
SO!!! Tuesday was National Unicorn Day, I recently learned. I follow Sweet Lyfe Boba Bar on Instagram, which is a local boba shop in my city with supercute food and beverages. I saw that they were having a celebration for National Unicorn Day, so my sister and I went there for unicorn-themed treats!!!
And I got to pose in front of this super cute backdrop they had set up! 💜
Everything was cuteness overload! It was a really fun morning. 💜
Hi, y’aaaaaall. For the record, I don’t play the banjo. But with my big hair paired with my gorgeous new gingham dress, it looks like I should!
Need I say more? I’m not sure who this woman is but she’s adorable, and we have somehow managed to coordinate outfits without even knowing. And decades apart, at that!!!! My sister sent me this photo and said it reminded her of me, by the way. That’s how I discovered my outfit twin.
This is a handmade dress from She’s a Mermaid Cat over on Etsy! She sews the most incredible clothing and I’m a huge fan now! I look forward to buying more dresses from her in the future! The clothing she makes is beautifully retro and sweet, and amazing quality to boot! 💜
In other news, guess who bought herself a ticket to see Ghost in September?!?!?! This will be my third time seeing them!
This is going to be a fresh experience for me in the sense that…I’m going by myself! I’ve never been to a concert by myself in my life! It’s out of town, but fortunately not a far drive at all.
I’m actually pretty proud of myself to be honest, because I never thought I’d have the courage to go to a concert alone (but I mean heck, I’ll be surrounded by hundreds of other people!). I go everywhere from coffee shops, walking at the park, to dining by myself with no hesitation, but a concert is something I have yet to try! So yay for climbing over those comfort zone obstacles!
I hope you all have had a beautiful weekend. This outfit I’m wearing is from Friday. 😃 I was feeling very dreamy and whimsical, and my outfit certainly conveyed my mood from that day!
I love this headband so much!!! I got it from Claire’s awhile back. Paired with the roses, it was just so majestic.
I went to Teazers Friday night to do some much-needed journaling and work on my laptop, and people were giving my headband (or maybe not just the headband but me in general) some peculiar glances. What, isn’t it normal to see a woman with stars coming out of her head?!?!!
On a concluding note, I met with my newfound uncle (as I mentioned the remarkable story in my previous post) for coffee this weekend. It was a beautiful time and something I’ll never forget!!!!!
Much to my surprise, I was given artwork made by my dad (and learned he is still an artist today, in fact, and that we have way more similarities on the creative spectrum than I ever would have imagined…). I wasn’t expecting to be given the artwork, so I was a bit speechless. I will cherish it! ❤️
