A Denver Date

Hi lovely friends,
     Wherever did the weekend go? I blinked at it was gone!  If you see it around anywhere, please tell it I am looking for it.  
     I wore this outfit on Saturday on a little day trip with R into Denver.  Even though it is only about a 40 minute drive away from where I live, its quite ridiculous how infrequently we actually make it in for the day.  It was pretty much my perfect idea of a Saturday.  We slept in a little then drove into Denver for coffee and a late brunch at a cute little place called Devils Food.  If you live in the area, they have amazing vanilla lattes!  Then, we mapped out a few places we wanted to go to which included a Record store, Tattered Cover book store, and of course a few thrift stores.  Now that R realized he can find records at thrift stores for about 99 cents, he is a bit more game to come along with me once in awhile!  What is your idea of a perfect weekend day?

 
 Outfit Details
Leggings: Rue 21 (old)
Boots: SO OLD!
Purse: thrifted
     This pretty if not dilapidated lion fountain we found across the street from the record and book store which seemed like a good spot to snap a few pictures.  I think I would live in a comfy floral dress like this all the time.  Cute print, check. Pleated skirt, check.  Elastic waistband, CHECK!  Topped off with a cozy vintage sweater from the shop and I was set for a day of exploring! R happily found a pile of great new (old) records, and I found a pile of new (old) dresses to fix up for the shop, so it was overall a very successful day!
Hope everyone is having a good start to their weeks, can you believe its almost February?!

p.s. Does anyone read or watch Game of Thrones? (Uhm, if you don't, whatever are you waiting for?!) Every time I see a lion I now think there must be a few Lannisters nearby!

  22. this is such a great pretty and practical outfit! i love it lots! this is dress is so so perfect and i love the cardi with it :) my idea of a perfect weekend right now would be a long lay in with hubby... kids and work are kicking my arse right now lol!! I also really fancy a trip to Stratford upon avon where Shakespere is from and doing a night Ghost tour that they run most evenings... that sounds pretty perfect too! xxx

  23. Sounds like a wonderful little road trip! I love the print of your dress, so cute. My perfect weekend would probably involve just staying at home the entire time, I rarely ever get to do that!

  25. That does sound like the perfect weekend day! We spent 5 days in Denver a few years ago and LOVED it. I love that even when it's cold it's usually sunny. I'm so jealous of your sweater, it looks so comfy! I hope I thrift one like that, but soon because it will be too warm in AZ before we know it :) I love all the mods you do to your dresses!
