After a week of rain and dark clouds, Saturday was bright and warm. Theo and I dropped everything to experience the miracle. And while the anniversary of the day we met came and went without either of us noticing, instead of a bouquet of roses, Theo drove me to an acre of tulips.
Dramatic huh? Eh, the man knows how I like it :)
Months ago, in my "A Thrifting I Will Go" post, I came across a rather matronly long navy crepe skirt with white polka-dots from thrift store favorite, Value Village. I thought I would alter it myself and make it into a cute flirty dress for Spring and Summer but with belts on my mind so much lately, I went ahead and took a crack at doing something different this time...
How's that for thinking inside the box, eh? This skirt has buttons that go all the way to the bottom. BORING! Who wants that? I opened them all but six (as I am after all, a lady) and showed off some knees and ankles. And one thigh.
skirt: Value Village thrift / belt: Ross / woven shrug: Bebe / tee: James Perse / necklace: Philippines / sunnies: Anne Klein / shoes: CMG / bag: Gustto
I was so pleased to be able to wear my wooden necklace again. When I first got this in the Philippines, I wore it here.
And this is me geeking out over the mobs of flowers all over me.
After an oily burger and a bucket of fries, I thought it best to step out of focus of the lens and let the flowers do their thing. Literally, acres of vibrant tulips all around us. So preeetty!
I hope your weekend was lovely.
Oh, and before I forget - did it really happen if you don't Instagram it? Here's some
poor evidence of my farm town adventures:
