Well hello there Friday! Welcome back to my world. I love how reliable you are and so appreciate you returning to me each and every week.
I'm silly, I know. I'm glad it's Friday though. It's a rare Friday with nothing going on, so Mr. Monkey and I will probably have a date night tonight. Usually we make Saturdays our date nights, but that isn't going to work out this weekend anyway as we have a birthday party for a friend, so I'm really glad tonight ended up free! We try to do weekly date nights as much as we can, I always offer up as advice to newlyweds - make sure you keep "dating" each other - it keeps your relationship fun and alive!
This shirt was a steal for me, it was on a clearance rack at the Mighty Swell Vintage sale last weekend for only $2. I feel like even if I only wore it once it would be justified! The good news is I'm pretty sure I have other things to wear it with and the cute little bow tie is kind of on trend right now.
I tried something different with the picture below here, I made a little collage style picture so you can see the detail of the shirt. Being so light colored it's very difficult to get a good picture unless I did one up close!
I love that the fabric in this shirt is super lightweight too. I could also see myself wearing this shirt under a lightweight blazer or something too though. It'll be fun to play with at any rate!
The weekend is kind of full as I said. Not only do we have a birthday party tomorrow night but I'm also singing for a wedding - first time in a few years I've gotten hired to do so and I'm so excited about it! It's such a nice way to make a little extra money! Sunday there's a pretty awesome event going on close to my house called No Coast Summer Craft-o-rama. My very good friend Jes will have a booth there and so will the fabulous Erin of Babes in Thriftland. If you're local and you love homemade/craft goodies you should definitely check it out. Not to mention the park where it's being held is is a lovely treasure in the middle of our city and I love that it's within walking distance of our house. After that we're heading to another birthday party, a pretty special one, we have friends who have a baby girl that came into the world super early last year and she has just turned 1, so they're having a big bash to celebrate. It'll be a crazy weekend but I'm looking forward to it! I am most excited about my date with my hubby though, I won't lie about that! Have a great weekend everyone!
