I don't usually have this many photos in one post, but I couldn't resist: I just really loved this outfit to bits. It was one of those chillier days when a sweater and a cape were just appropriate, you know? My husband and I spent the day strolling around downtown, exploring bookstores, cafes, and taking photos of the gorgeous spring foliage. It was oh so romantic, but with a lot of bold colors and prints: Pop Romantic, I'd say.

Sometimes I can't help but be a big bowl of mushy mush mush or a huge ball of cheese. I blame it on my upbringing consisting of a steady supply of power ballads and Hallmark cards. To this day, whenever "Endless Love" comes on the radio, I get all weepy and shit. But that quote in the last photo. is not from a sappy song. It's probably the only bit I can quote from Alice in Wonderland even though I've read it bazillions of times.

***Thanks so much for the warm congratulations on my anniversary. We had an amazing weekend together, and I can't wait to share photos of our little adventure.

  7. I'm glad you brought the cape back out, I really like it on you. Also loving your cute shoes! I need to find more kitten heels. I keep getting super high ones which I love (but they aren't practical for walking too much in)

  20. I think everyone needs some mushy mush mush and cheese in their lives, and I'm so glad you shared yours with us, Laura! You look gorgeous as per usual -- and I love, love, love your outfit too! I've always been intimidated by the cape (but strangely not the poncho?), but you carry it off with aplomb! And swans and cute necklaces! Just love it! So glad you guys had a lovely weekend!
