Sorry about the title of this post, guys; I just can't resist a good pun! And that one wasn't even good! Good job, Becca. Sheesh.
Anyway! It was a lovely weekend. Friday I had an awesome night hanging out with Elle. We went and saw Monsters University, which was SO great! I'm a sucker for a good Pixar movie, and this one had us both laughing just about the whole time. After movie time we went out for dinner and a couple of drinks and had a grand old time!
Saturday I checked out a new cafe near my house with my friend, Sarah, and then we went and got some ice cream (PB&J!) and walked around looking at some cute shops. And then Sunday morning I went to breakfast with Michele, and then we popped into the farmers market afterward to do our weekly purchasing of gorgeous, gorgeous produce. I also spent a lot of time over the weekend doing some cooking, cleaning, and working on some projects, like sprucing up the ol' blog a little.
It was a great weekend that had a perfect combination of relaxing, socializing, and getting things done! My brain has been swimming in thoughts lately, so it was nice to have a calm weekend to get a lot done and get some of those thoughts out of my head. Sometimes that internal to-do list is intense!
In other news, can we please talk about this vintage dirndl I'm wearing? It was a pretty exciting find! I was out vintage shopping with my lovely cousin last weekend (check out her amazing calligraphy over at Imagine Joy!), and had remarked that I was excited that they had a few things that would potentially fit me. This is always exciting because I wear a modern size 12, and since ladies used to be substantially tinier it can be tough to find cute vintage pieces. Fortunately for me, one of the ladies working at the store overheard this and totally sympathized and related! She told me that they just got a few things in that were my size and she'd go grab them for me!
One of the things she brought over was this vintage dirndl. I'm so glad she overheard me talking and grabbed it for me because it fits like a glove and has amazing details, like the tiniest little pin-tucks I've ever laid eyes on. It makes an amazing summer dress, but since it's a sturdy cotton, I think I'll also get some good wear out of this in the winter with some tights and a good cardigan.
Did you guys do anything fun over the weekend?
Til next time!
