what i wore :: Aqua

:: head to toe ::
scarf :: thrifted
glasses :: Coastal
necklace :: c/o Lotta Losten
cardigan :: H&M
belt :: thrifted
skirt :: thrifted
shoes :: Urban Outfitters

Let me just start by saying that this outfit was a huge hit with Ivan's Dad & Grandma. I wore it when we went there last week when we visited them and Ivan's Dad said I looked like I was from the 50's (yes please, I will always accept that compliment) and Ivan's Grandma was very interested in my skirt and even more impressed when I told her that it was second-hand. 

I love how green our grass is getting! I never fully realize how much Winter bums me out until Spring really begins. This year I have become very aware of the trees and flowers blooming and I blame home ownership. I find myself checking out people's trees and garden's like the nosiest nosy person ever. I wonder if they see me staring at their house and wonder what the heck I'm so interested in. Well it's either their garden or their home decor. I am also a major window peeker especially if we are walking around at night. This is why I always close our curtains when it gets dark out. I don't want to be peeped on while I'm having an after dinner dance party in the living room!

Anyways...back on topic. I am pretty in love with my necklace and you should definitely pop by in a few hours if you are interested in winning one for yourself! The length is just perfect and the colour makes me very happy.

  2. those pleats are just right.
    I am totally an evening window peeker too. My husband doesn't understand why I am so anal about closing the blinds at dusk but he doesn't know what kind of people are out there! lol

  4. Really cute. I am definitely a major window peeker. I probably shouldn't be allowed to drive at night because of how often I look away from the road to peer into people's living rooms. :/

    That is a really cool necklace! I will definitely have to stop by later :)

  6. I love this outfit and can't wait to stop by after work to enter the giveaway. And I'm totally a peeper too when it comes to peoples yards and such. I'm an apartment dweller so no yard for me yet. I like to get ideas :)

  7. I love your glasses, I think those should be the factor to get you the compliment of wearing vintage! But again this whole outfit is 50s so you are vintage all over :) I love it. Of course the necklace is gorgeous.
