A Perfect Day

Today was very busy and oh so fun. It helped that I was wearing this lovely cheongsam. We started out by going to my favorite vintage shop, Crimson and Clover to spend some leftover birthday money. I found a few amazing pieces including a 1960's peach cocktail dress and a victorian lace and velvet robe. Alaric found some awesome yellow tennis shoes and a couple awesome vintage 70's summer shirts. The store is kind of overwhelming because although it is small all the pieces are handpicked and so beautiful and not too expensive. After that we tried out a new raw food restaurant that my sister works at and treated us to. We had pesto pizza, thai coconut soup and a chocolate smoothie. It was so decadent and delicious.
cheongsam and shoes: vintage thrifted
After that we headed to my brother's baby shower. I gave my niece Sofia her belated birthday present and photographed her in it.
gunne sax dress: thrifted
It was so nice to see friends and family whom it had been too long since we had hung out with. I am so lucky to know such amazing people. I had to photograph Zara's hat. Her boyfriend is an artist and made it completely from masking tape. 

Beatrix's cousin Hana had quite a bit of fun at the water table at the party. She and Beatrix are the best of friends.
dress: secondhand
I almost forgot this morning I found out I won my first blog giveaway on Sally Jane Vintage. It is a Rare Treasure vintage sweater. I'm so excited!
We are all pretty exhausted and didn't make it to the art walk  unfortunately. Bea didn't get a nap and pretty much crashed when we got home. I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow.
