Ugh Monday. There goes my resolution to be more positive, killed in the very first utterance of the day. I don't think it is possible for me to be very positive on Monday mornings though, unless its some sort of holiday I have off. This weekend, however, was nice. Friday night I met a friend and we tried this wine and cheese restaurant and bar, which was delicious. I don't really think you can go wrong with that combo...ever. I had a glass of Riesling, my favorite. Then we split a butternut squash dip appetizer and an apple, brie, and caramelized onion panini as our entree. This was followed my chocolate fondue for dessert. Yup, heaven. I was in a delectable coma of cheesy chocolatey goodness afterwards, which did make the drive home afterward a little difficult.
Saturday was full of the one thing that makes me even more excited than food! Thrifting! (Alright, well it's a close tie). A thrift store in the next town over does an event twice a year called the ten dollar bag sale. It's pretty much the best thing ever. For ten dollars, you get to fill a paper grocery bag with as much clothes and shoes as you can. I roll everything into little balls, and got four pairs of shoes and probably about 15 dresses in my bag! You can fill as many bags as you want, but since I sometimes want to be able to see the floor of my room, I tried to use some self control. Some of the stuff I am excited to try and alter a little bit with my new sewing machine too.
Boots: Target (last year)
This dress is one of my new finds from this weekend. I love the little silver flower buttons up the front! The blouse is another favorite find from the past, and I am really surprised it hasn't surfaced on here yet. The flower embroidering is really pretty, and there is another one on a a front pocket that isn't pictured. As for the post title, as I am sure you can gather, I am standing in front of a scarlet building (also seen in this Chevron post), and I have floral dress on- they are probably not Begonias though. I love the red back drop, but red is really hard to photograph! The camera kept on focusing on the building details, making me in the foreground a little fuzzy. And as usual, I couldn't resist a silly jump shot!
