A Day of Hearts


Yay, it's almost Valentine's Day! I saved a very festive outfit for today, complete with lots of little red touches and this heart blouse belonging to my grandmother. It is one of those puffy, nylon blouses that were so popular in the late 1950's. I love it because so often I think of whimsical prints as something that is a new fad, but really vintage prints were full of whimsy and fun! I also donned a fun 1940's hat and some little green gloves I found a few days ago at a new flea market in town. They are absolutely the perfect color.
Also, be on the lookout for another remix tomorrow, I'll show you all of the ways I've worn this coat in the past!

I keep trying to convince Sean that red and mint are the perfect color combination and I want do decorate our house in those colors, but he is dead set against it. He just hates those two colors together, so I guess I will have to wear those colors as often as possible on ME instead! Ha, that'll show him ;)

So sorry I haven't been getting around to your blogs the past couple of weeks. I have been under the weather a bit and I am planning to do some blog hopping this weekend to read all of your fabulous posts!

Have a happy Thursday!
God Bless,
KJA

Aaaw, I love the red and mint combo! Why doesn't he like it?! :D
I love how you mix and match different pieces and how you always add your own signature to a look! The gloves are a perfect accessory to the ensemble! ^_^
