Sequins & Stripes: A Sunday Adventure Day 29

Early* this morning Sequins, Stripes and our good friend Plaid all piled into the car and headed over to the Skagit Valley Yearly Tulip Festival to look at some flowers, have some lady bonding time, and take a bajillion pictures. Also, side note, Sequins definitely drove us home. Because she’s awesome like that. Check out some of our pictures! The titles, if you hover over them, will tell you which one of us took it. Enjoy!

This is what happens when I don't remember I zoomed my camera in to take the previous shot!

Sequins Outfit:

Shirt: Sojourner/ Vest Scarf & Shoes: Thrifted/ Shoes: H&M/ TIghts: Gift

Stripes’ Outfit:

Shirt: Target/ Jeans: Gap/ Shoes: Toms/ Sweatshirt: Aerie/ Coat: The North Face (seriously awesome raincoat….if you’re in the market for one, this one is great!)


*So only two of us (*cough cough* Stripes and Plaid) thought 8 am was early…Our lovely Sequins is much more adjusted to such grown up hours and was bright eyed and fully awake by that point in the morning. The other two of us needed some more wake up time and coffee.

Sequins 30 for 30: The Bookstore Ritual

First off–have I mentioned how many weddings are happening in my immediate circle this summer? Four. My step sisters, my good friend from college, my sister’s, and my other good friend from college. The last two I’m Maid of Honour for. It’s a lot, and means that a lot of my free time is thinking about someone or another’s wedding. This weekend it was my step sisters. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend her actual wedding, which will be in Quebec in June, but I was able to attend her bridal shower this weekend in the big city.

Monsieur and I are getting in the habit (that I’ve spend years cultivating) of visiting the bookstore that is very close to the train station before actually hopping on the train. I have an absolute book buying…. well, “problem” isn’t an accurate word. Excessive habit, perhaps? Excessive book buying habit? Well anyway, we went to the bookstore for a few other things, and we opted to be brave/nerdy and do photos there!

And please note my necklace–it was my birthday present from Monsieur. I’m absolutely in love with it, especially considering how much I’ve been jonesing for just such a necklace after seeing this pin. So yeah, I’m thrilled with it. Also? This outfit is one that I honestly never would have pieced together if it weren’t for the 30 for 30.

And oh and last note? My sister and I have the same initials, and we found a bottle of wine with our (shared) initials as the name. So we’re definitely drinking that while watching Triplets of Belleville. Anyone seen it? Totally crazy! I’m kind of totally in love with it!

Shirt: Thrifted J Crew/ Belt: Thrifted/ Shorts: H&M/ Tank: Sojourner/ Shoes: Soda/ Tights & Necklace: Gifts (Stripes & Monsieur, respectively)

Sequins 30 for 30: Friends In Low Places

I’ve got friends low places, or so the song goes. Not really–I don’t think, at least. I done, however, have awesome friends. In cool places. Awesome friends who find cool trinkets from those cool places, and who then mail those things to me. Curious yet? Fell off the train that was my thought? That’s okay. I’ll just show you a picture, then.

**Update: My darling friend let me know that the necklace is from Charming Charlies, and there’s only one of its kind up here in Washington. Apparently it’s based out of Texas, and apparently (or so the reports go), everything in that store has the same level of awesome a my necklace.

See that necklace? That necklace was found by a good friend of mine, a good friend who has a blog that you should check out. Girl is crazy interesting with her crazy lists. But back to the necklace! Isn’t it awesome? The paper in the typewriter moves. And it’s a full QWERTY key board. Ugh it’s so cool it hurts! And the rest of the outfit isn’t that bad (if I do say so myself)…

Shirt: Gap, Thrifted/ Shorts: H&M/ Tights: Bella/ Shoes: Clarks/ Necklace: present!

Are you loving my ponytail? I told you all it was dorky! I’m so happy to have my hair up, though. It’s been up the whole weekend. It take a couple of hair clips to support it, but man alive is it comfy! Right now I’m just curled up in my boyfriend’s sweatpants (few things are more comfortalbe than the things that come out of his wardrobe), watching Game of Thrones with him and our darling friend Lou Lou (he hates the nickname, but he puts up with it like the good sport that he is!)

Let’s take one last look at that friggin’ awesome necklace, shall we?

Ahh… What a necklace. What a gift! Lordy I must be spoiled rotten!
