The forecast for today was rain and thunderstorms, and spring always means breaking out rainboots and cute umbrellas. This coat is one of my favorite pieces in my closet; it isn’t too thick or slick that I can’t wear it on regular days, but it is wet-proof, so I can wear it when it rains and not get soaked. One downfall of rainy days is they are dark, so it was hard to get outfit pictures, but we did run out during a break in the rain and take these!
Don’t you love that frizzy, curly rainy-day hair?
I’m feeling the seventies lately. They are calling me. I know the 90′s are in, but I’m still stuck in the 70′s. When I ask my husband how I look he keeps saying things like- "You look like you stepped out of that seventies show. Again." He exaggerates a little, but was the seventies such a bad thing? I don’t think so. I do think though, that unless you are going to take a giant 100% leap into vintage clothing and rock everything from your shoes to your underwear, then you should probably find a good balance of new vs. vintage. I think everyone’s balance is a different amount, and you have to take in account things like hair, make-up, shoes, accessories, and the clothes. I always make sure to mix some obviously new items into the mix. I’ll wear clothing running the gamut from 1930-1979. I don’t do the 80′s and 90′s. I know it’s in again, and everybody’s rocking the day-glo and the parachute pants but I just can’t do it. I think if you lived in the times people wore those things (or like me, you had to wear acid washed jeans in the 2000′s because you finally fit your sisters hand-me-downs and your mom wouldn’t buy you new jeans, so now your scarred for life) then you have a small guard up against clothing that looks too much like the decade. Ya know what I mean? Like I will never ever ever rock one of those Poncho cape things that were so in like 10 years ago. I’m sure they will come back in style someday, and I will look at them and say "why are people wearing those again?" Certain things should just stay gone. Remember those egg carton shirts that could stretch from infant size to 3XL? Why? Why did we wear those?
Anyways, here’s my outfit from the day. Definitely seventies inspired, and I love it! These jeans are my favorite pants I own, but I can’t usually wear them because I have to wear really high heels to make them clear the ground!
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter week-end! We’re headed out for Easter Egg hunts and fun church activities!

I know I’m a little late to the scarf trend, but I watched a few youtube tutorials and I’m hooked. I’ve been wearing them around the house because I felt like I looked a little too Aunt Jemima in them to go out, but I finally took the plunge and went out wearing one. Do ya’ll ever feel like that? When you are trying a new trend, you’re nervous for people to see you? Like you might look dumb or something? Maybe that’s just me… I do think if you are a girl like me with frizzy hair, you have to be careful because it can just look extra messy, but I am loving scarves now!

With spring quickly coming, I have seen Farmer’s Markets and home-grown vegetable stands starting to pop-up all along the road sides. I thought I’d put together a cute little outfit that’s perfect for a day out shopping at the farmer’s market or a craft fair. For a day of shopping, I like an outfit that’s comfortable, and easy to put together. Here in the south boots are a must since most fairs and farmer’s markets are on fields or dirt and you never know how muddy it might be. A bag with some structure is a must in case you find some beautiful flowers or something you don’t want smashed in a slouchy bag. I always fold up a linen market bag like this one and tuck it inside in case I find too much to carry in one bag. I know it’s gotten a little chilly for a few days, but it’s supposed to warm up, so hopefully you get to get out and do some local shopping this week!
