Amusement

Outfit Details: Top (Dress) : Vintage (remixed here and here) // Skirt: Kickstarter gift from Chantilly Songs (remixed)// Scarf: Grandmother's// Brooch: Vintage // Shoes: Thrifted





Hello Darlings, 

This past week has been nothing short of relaxing and I am enjoying that quite a bit...maybe a bit too much:) It's always a lovely thing to catch up with loved ones and that's exactly what we have been doing.  Cake and pie is not in short supply and neither is delicious food.  Why does dinner always taste better when it is cooked by mom?  Anyhow, Albert and I snuck away for an afternoon and hit all my favorite places in my hometown - the antique mall, an old fabric store where my mom and grandmother took me to pick out fabric for my dresses when I was little, my favorite Thai cafe, and the local Starbucks - because I can never have enough coconut mocha fraps this time of year.  Anyhow, we were close by to this tiny old amusement park that my family took me to once in a while when I was a kid and it is sadly now defunct.  I'm oddly obsessed with creepy and rusted old defunct parks like this.  We were both so curious and eager to enter and explore, but I chickened out as there were men mowing the grounds.  I can be a bit of a scaredy cat I will admit.   Oh well, maybe next time.   So there I stood at the entrance mysteriously enchanted by this once lively little place.  

Wishing you once fantastical week!
Love bunches,

  1. Sounds like a lovely afternoon, and as usual your clothes are beautiful and I adore the mix of bright colours! I'm also jealous of your coconut mocha frap...we don't get such exciting flavours in the UK!

  5. Hello, gorgeous! Oh my goodness I simply adore this! That sounds like a wonderful relaxation to me - well anything with an endless supply of sweets sounds wonderful to me hehe :). I can really relate to you on being attracted to places like that! Anything left from my childhood I would consider revisiting soon for the fear of it being gone before I get one last chance of seeing it. Isn't it amazing/scary how the world has evolved so much since then? Sigh.

  10. I love this outfit. The skirt is seriously amazing and I love how you mixed the patterns. I'm a complete chicken too when it comes to things like that. Theres this old mansion in a park near us that reminds me of the house from beauty and the beast and I've always been so freaked out to go near it haha! Maybe one day... Hope you have a lovely rest of your week!

  14. I have been the same way too - a little lazy and catching up with old things and people. Isn't it such a great feeling, although I do feel a little guilty for not running around like my head is chopped off. I'm glad you're enjoying your time at home, you sure look wonderful in that awesome outfit!

  15. I am a total scaredy cat! I've probably missed out on some fun adventures because of it :) Or... maybe that's why I'm still alive!! Chantilly did good- this skirt was meant for you!

  16. I love the shot of your pretty loafers against the paint splattered pavement! Once again, you are the master of primary color mixing! Im so happy for you that you are having a nice relaxing week! myself cannot wait for the weekend!
    I think broken places always give more interest to a backdrop then something shiny and new! But its totally a pain actually getting near the intriguing places! Happy thursday!
