It's no surprise that I have a love affair with two piece suits. I think it's the versatility with which one can remix the items and incorporate them into more casual or quirky outfits. This particular shoot does not showcase the wonder of this dress and jacket combination found at my recent trip to the flea market. It was horribly cold and windy on Sunday, so I'll have to get better pictures of it next time. It includes a basic shift dress and short jacket with the cutest collar and buttons! I'm getting really into the 60's you guys. I feel like that is where most of my vintage wardrobe derives from. Not to mention, during our house hunting ventures, I just fell in love with the most amazing house from 1963. I felt my heart swell a bit while I was inside. It is painted in the most wonderful pastel colors, like mint and mauve, which made me melt into a puddle of sentiment. Not to mention, there is a spectacular bathroom downstairs with double sinks that looked straight out of a Rock Hudson/Doris Day movie (Send Me No Flowers, anyone?). Count me IN! Husband is not too sure (he still thinks he married a 65 year old lady), but who knows, I may convince him in the end!
I've been having really great luck in the hat department lately. One of my favorite antique shops sells some beauties for under ten dollars, which is a steal in my opinion. I couldn't resist the ruched bow detailing on this piece!

We'll be doing some more house hunting tonight if all goes well, and potentially making an offer on a place in the next week or so. It is such a scary thought! We'll potentially be living there for a great many years, so it seems a tremendous decision is looming upon us. Prayer for wisdom is always appreciated :)
I hope you have a simply splendid day darlings!
Colossians is really inspiring me lately. It is full of daily reminders for us to grow and develop in our relationship with Christ. Take a few minutes and read through the book of Colossians if you have a chance!
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
*My heart and prayers go out to the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. What senseless violence, it doesn't add up. It seems as though events of this nature are getting closer and closer together over the past few years. All I can do from where I sit is pray for those affected.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
