All this white stuff has me craving color.
Particularly orange. I have a major orange crush going on at the moment.
A couple summers ago, when we were sprucing up the lawn furniture, I had a crazy idea to paint our mailbox bright orange, but settled on teal to match the rest of our outdoor fixtures. I would not be surprised if that mailbox ended up orange this summer.
That is the great thing about color, whether in paint or clothes, you can switch it up to match your mood.
Right now I am in the mood to punch it up.
With polka dots and pie.
Remember how I was telling you that Daisy Mae likes to photobomb my outfit shoots? Yeah…. while I was shooting these, this happened…

No girls’ getaway would be complete without a little shopping.
On Friday we set out to explore the town and fill my trunk. <– Something the bell hop was less than thrilled to find when we were checking out and luggage needed to be loaded in. Oopsie!
We started off with a little lunch at Sweet Art from-scratch bakeshop & art studio. We were a bit surprised to discover that the menu is mainly vegan. Vegan food was the furthest thing from my mind. I was in St. Louis and about to give up meat for Lent. I wanted to get me some ribs!
Nevertheless, it was delicious. I devoured my plate of Vegan Mackin’ Cheese. Then topped it off with a delectable Hummingbird Cupcake. Just the fuel I needed for a day of shopping!
We hit up three vintage stores in town - Green Shag Market, Treasure Aisles Antique Mall and Big Bend Antique Gallery. I scored a few goodies at each. One being, that fur collar I am wearing up top.
I added two fur collars to my collection, a wood-framed parasol [finally!], an orange feather headpiece [shown around my wrist], an orange floral brooch [not shown] and was thrilled to find two American Tourister suitcases [with keys!] to match my vintage train case.
I look forward to using the luggage on my next wanderlust adventure! Ta ta St. Louis. ♥
