I think spring is finally arriving here in New England!  It was almost warm enough on Easter Sunday to go without a jacket, so I did, because I knew I would be mostly indoors.  It was still quite breezy so I may have regretted my choices slightly when I was out walking about and taking these pictures after church...

I did a little insta-shopping because @adelinesattic is clearing out some inventory at pretty stellar prices, and one of the things I bought was this fabulous navy and pink feathered hat.  I thought it would be the perfect compliment to the dress I bought from Sweet Bee Finds to reward myself for completing my first piano tuning video exam and I was right... it's just perfect!  I was trying to pick out my Easter outfit on Saturday afternoon when I heard a thump on the porch, and lo and behold there was a package containing my hat, so the timing really was just perfect.

I'm also pretty pleased that it's warm enough to wear this dress!  This was its maiden voyage out into the world, which is what I get for buying myself a novelty cotton dress for motivation in the middle of the winter.  I'll have to get better pictures of the print next time I wear it, but I assure you that it is covered in little upright pianos complete with little stools and open sheet music and it's absolutely divine.

I stopped into a cupcake shop to grab a bite of something chocolate after taking these pictures and had a very silly conversation with a few other customers who wanted to know if I was wearing a crinoline (yes), if I was dressed in 1940s style (...no), and what the difference was between a '40s outfit and a '50s outfit (Skirt fullness, hat style, and shoulders, for starters...).  The last of these was particularly silly because the folks I was chatting with looked like they should have had firsthand experience with 1950s styles!
