Happy Spring

It’s been a bit quiet around these parts. March has been and continues to be a very busy month. I’ll get back into the swing of things soon.

In the meantime, I thought I’d talk about the first day of Spring here in Central Oregon. Wednesday, March 20th was the first day of Spring. We had wind, rain, sunshine and snow all in one day. It was wonderful. This amazing rainbow also showed up.

I celebrated by wearing my floral flats and bright blue tights with some stripes. I totally blanked on getting outfit photos, but I grabbed this shot of my shoes.


It was also my 14th wedding anniversary. Yay! It was very low-key as we had taken a trip to Ashland, Oregon in February to celebrate. We had a fun evening with our boys eating Mexican food and shopping for a new washing machine – ours went kaput a couple of weeks ago. It wasn’t terribly romantic, but we really did have fun together as a family and that’s one of the best things about our marriage – the laughter and the fun. A good celebration.

Here’s our lovely new washing machine that we got a great deal on!

Fashion on Friday – March 8, 2013

I think I need some skinnier jeans. I love my skinny jeans – wearing them under dresses is one of my favourite looks, but they are a bit baggy in the legs. Must add to wish list.

The following outfit is the only one I’m posting today that I’m not wearing skinny jeans in!

I made this necklace out of a Scrabble tile and added an “I Love Colin” pendant that I found at Claires years ago when Colin Farrell was particularly popular. I really do love Colin, a lot, just not Colin Farrell. I love My Colin!

I wore the next outfit for a day out with my sister in Portland. It was such a lovely day. Full of good food, lots of walking, fun shops, great talks, and city time! So thankful for my sister.

One of the vintage shops we went to was called Fat Fancy. It’s a vintage clothes shop with clothes in sizes 12+. We had a great time and both found some amazing clothes. March 2013 015 March 2013 013Outfit details: Dress – vintage kaftan/robe altered by me, Jeans – Ross, Shoes – Blowfish, Earrings – Vintage
