Running Late

Well, we had a lovely vacation to California, where it was not warm in the slightest, and we are now back at home where it is also not warm in the slightest, but while I’m sorting through all of my vacation photos, here are a few very belated pictures from earlier in the spring. Seriously.…

All the Colors

I’ve started doing a monthlong vintage challenge on Instagram (#thevintagefashionchallenge) that consists of a series of prompts to share a bit about one’s vintage collection and inspiration. Today’s prompt is favorite color, so I thought I’d share this outfit on instagram and here on the blog. I tend to say that my favorite color is…

Of Hats and Uncooperative Weather

Spring in New England is lovely, but the weather is rather… fickle. I’m eyeing the forecast for this weekend and ordering up a couple large umbrellas on Amazon Prime in case it decides to be torrential downpours. I’m REALLY hoping it doesn’t do that, but a 60% chance of rain and Murphy’s Law probably means…

In My Sunday Best

Religion and politics are, naturally, things that a person tries to avoid discussing with strangers. And in a way, all of you lovely readers are strangers… at least, although you may know me (or the bits of a character of me that writes this blog), I certainly don’t know all of you. And I am…

Confection in Pink

I swear I don’t know where the time has gone this year. I think “Oh, surely I just posted a few days ago, I’ll have another post up soon”, and then the month is only over and I’ve only posted once. Quite the mystery. Anyway, continuing to work through the photo backlog not entirely in…

Think Springy Thoughts

Now that I’ve found a skirt that matches my blue suit jacket, I’ve developed an overwhelming desire to wear it with everything. So, uh, you might be seeing a lot of this suit around the blog in the coming weeks. Sorrynotsorry. We had a bit of mild weather at the end of January that put…

June Showers

I know that April showers bring May flowers, but I’m not entirely sure what June showers are supposed to bring. July vegetables, I hope! I’m all for warmer weather, of course, and all for rain, but the combination of the two does make dressing and doing one’s hair a bit of a challenge! It rained…

Fancy Breakfast Adventures

I’m not sure if you guys know this, but I’m terrible at making friends. Seriously. Some ladies have groups of friends, not me. If I’m lucky I can manage to scrape up about one friend in any given situation. One friend from my first college, one friend from that summer program I did… and really,…

Pretty in Pink (…and purple)

We talked a little bit about classes of hats here on the blog the other week, and after posting it I promptly found another excellent hat. I think this one makes it into the capital-H “Hat” category on colors alone. It’s not particularly towering, but it sure has an impact! I’m sure that 10-year-old me,…

Moving right along

Well, the blog migration is… In progress. I’m going to be working on it in bits and chunks, I think… Better to have an incomplete website where I’ll actually post than to wait until everything is perfect and avoid posting because things are in transition! So excuse the dust, I’ll get everything sorted out soon.…
