Happy (Super Duper Belated) Valentine's Day

Twee Valley High // Happy Valentine's Day!
I had a doggie emergency that day so Valentine's Day was put on hold. Since then, we've celebrated by switching food duties for a night. I made the main course, lasanga, and Jason made a giant no-bake peanut butter cup (yum!).  We also went to dinner at Hotel Chantelle, which has some super delicious appetizers fyi. I comissioned this amazing illustration by Morgane Carlier, who came highly recommended by a variety of bloggers. It came out so amazing!

The Stages of Grief As I Watched Parks and Recreation's Series Finale

"I'm ready, let's watch this!"

"Aww this is fun...hi Ann! It's Ann!!!"

"Let's be dignified about this..."

"Here's to a show that made me laugh more times than I can count. Goodbye Pawnee, you will be missed."

"Hold me."

A Snowy Day in Brooklyn

Weather is crazy in NYC. Temperatures are lower than ever, yet here I am, a crazy person staging a snowy photo shoot. Despite the cold, I'm really happy with these photos. It was gorgeous on my roof and the snow, untouched, kept falling in such a whimsical fashion. 

These dresses come courtesy of Unique Vintage. I'm especially in love with the polka dot dress, which I wore to a fashion week show. I was wary of cap sleeves and possible waist pleats, but turns out the dress is super flattering and surprisingly floaty. It made me want to spin about, which you can see from the photos below. It's also really comfortable, which is fairly important to me. 

The hat is one of my favorite things I own. Jason gave it to me when we first started dating. I mentioned in passing that I always wanted one and he set out to find the best leopard pill-box. It was a darling surprise that I have yet to forget. It's also the perfect statement piece and wonderful in winter weather. 

My second look has adorable hearts all over. I'm not a huge fan of the stretchy fabric, but the print more than makes up for it, plus the front has some flattering ruching. It's great for the winter season when I can pair a dress with a cardigan and tights.

This is my second entry as part of the Unique Vintage Style Society. I'm still honored they asked and I'm glad to be part of such a positive campaign. Some of my favorite bloggers have also partnered with UV, like Chronically Vintage and The Soubrette Brunette. Definitely check out their posts and follow the #iamunique hashtag on Instagram.
