Red on red

My parents have been living in Kansas City for like 10 years and not once, NOT ONCE! did I think to myself, “Let’s go vintage shopping!” How can this be, pretty kitties? I think I have always been sucked into the H&M and Urban Outfitters and it just never occurred to me until recently! Joe and I had a day date while Charlie hung out with his grandparents. We went to Westport, I tried on about 2,000 dresses (and took 3 home!), we went to a record store, a toy store, walked around a bunch, and then went and met back up with my parents. It was a beautiful day that was made all the better by the new spring clothes!

So this is one of the dresses I bought. I’m in love! I’m a sucker for a cute boat neck, and this bandana pattern is the tops! I paired it with my red jacket, which I was a little iffy about, but then Charlie said, “You look cute Mama!” so I left it on. Nothing like a compliment from a 2 year-old to give confidence to your fashion choices!

City Museum fun times

So this isn’t going to be a traditional outfit post this week for me. Instead I’m also going to share some of my favorite photos from our day at the City Museum in Saint Louis. If you live in the area, you probably know all about this place, but basically it’s an old shoe factory that an artist by the name of Bob Cassilly bought and turned into this zany, crazy fun place.

My mom is such a great photographer, so I have to give her credit for all of these fun photos. Thanks for letting me share!
