What I wore today: 04/25/2014 (Monarch)

Monarch outfit: yellow silk butterfly dress, Jeffrey Campbell "Everly" ankle boots, Asos quilted bunny bag, Noir dinosaur bone ribcage cuff bracelet

On Friday, I accompanied my friend to the DAAP fashion show again to see her sister's collection. It was a fun night out, and I got to wear a dress, which is something I haven't been doing a lot of during the long hard winter we just had.

Easter Wish List

Easter Wish List
Clockwise from left: Wind and Weather, Etsy, Terrain, Terrain, Modcloth, Anthropologie

Like Halloween, Easter is one of those holidays that you can definitely still enjoy as an adult, sometimes even more than you did as a kid. Easter candy is the best seasonal candy – as far as I'm concerned Reece's Eggs could replace Reece's Cups year round – and it's always fun to get dressed up and fill your home with flowers.

What I wore today: 03/29/2014 (Pretty in Pink)

Pretty in Pink Outfit: Anthropologie pink and gold lace and sequin "Sugarberry Dress", thrifted London Fog rain coat, Anthropologie pink suede kitten heels, thrifted floral cardigan, Kate Spade Emma book cosmetic pencil case

I fell in love with this dress when it first came in to the store back before Christmas. But, at $298, I just couldn't justify the purchase, even with my employee discount. So, you can imagine my surprise and joy when I found one in February marked down to $39.95. It was a 4, and, though I could squeeze myself into it, I tracked down a 6 at the Louisville store and had them send it to me. 

Knowing Ryan and I had tickets to the ballet at the end of March, I saved it for the occasion. I even got lucky with a day of 40-degree stormy weather, which meant tights wouldn't be an absolute necessity as they have been for time immemorial. 

We had a lovely date night, trying out a new restaurant in our neighborhood, which we had been saving for the occasion as well. Some things are worth the wait.
