Spring has sprung and it is officially sundress weather! With the semester coming to a close and summer fast approaching, I am feeling like bursting out of the stressful lecture-writing purgatory with some new beauties to add to my closet. The hardest part is, as usual, how to choose??
I realize that I’ve been going on and on about how busy I’ve been these past few months, and yet somehow I always manage to find time for a little cyber-window shopping. It’s almost as if no matter how well I impersonate a headless chicken, the rampaging shopping beast will never be squelched. At the very least, you can all benefit from my uncanny ability to bookmark vintage with one hand and write lectures with with other…
For My Castle
I’m a bit hopeless with plants, but am so smitten with this planter!
The Mr. and I are looking for ways to spruce up our screened-in porch. Loving these fairy lights!
How amazing is this scratch your travels poster! It’s a map where you can scratch off every place you’ve been… Such an amazing idea.
For My Closet
Oh lordy, I just can never resist a perfect border print dress….
I swoon every time I see the appliqué’s on this 1950’s Tina Leser number…
What’s citrus and sweet and hard to beat? This adorable orange and lemon print dress!
You guys know I am not one for pants or shorts. But this adorable playsuit might convert me…
And this is the most dreamy shelf bust dress ever. It just needs a wide-brim sunhat and a walk along the shore to make up my perfect day.
For Some Arm Candy
Viva la fruit purses! Especially the puffy fruit purses….
Do I need a bag with a road runner on it?? (yeah, that’s a rhetorical questions)
If I had unlimited funds, this bag would be mine. Seriously, jaw droopingly beautiful…
Oh to picnic with the world’s most perfect apple bag….
For South of my Ankles
I don’t think I can ever have too many pairs of glittery mint-toned heels.
These Poetic License heels are just too pretty. I am a sucker for a 3D flower…
The word is not want. The word is NEED.
For Some Sparkle
I’m not always into steampunk, but there’s something so delicate and beautiful about this necklace. It reminds me of waves and sea creatures and the Industrial Revolution all rolled into one.
WATERMELON SLICES?? Too cute for words…
I’m so enamored with jewelry that looks as if it’s housing another world…
I have a few pieces from Luxulite and I LOVE them – I’m completed smitten with her latest fancy fish brooch!
Somehow (and I’m not quite sure how), I’ve managed to not acquire any silver belts in my life….Must rectify.
Because it’s Springtime, don’t I need a neapolitan ice cream Valentino swing coat?? All the yeses!
Believe it or not, this is my final week of teaching for the semester! I know, I almost can’t believe it either. Don’t you think that such a milestone deserves some sort of reward (preferably 1950’s vintage??) Me too…
I’m off today to lead a review for their final exam. As I’m slowly wrapping things up, I can’t help but hope I’ve imparted at least a small bit of knowledge that’s going to stay with them. I don’t flatter myself in believing they’ll remember it all, but as educators all we ever hope for is that something sticks.
At the very least, I have it on good authority that they’ll remember my dresses….
