What I Wore: Skirt (Chicwish), Shirt (Similar Here), Shoes (Old Navy), Necklace (Popbasic; Similar Here)
With Valentine's falling right before Presidents' Day, we were treated to a long weekend at work! And with the extra time, The Boy made my wish come true- we went out of town! Especially in the winter, you can feel so hemmed in a small, remote town, and for both of us the every weekend has been a working weekend, just trying to keep treading water. So it was a relief to finish things up Friday and hit the open road!
We headed up to Bozeman, a Montana college town just far enough away that we don't get to visit it often. We spent most of our time there poking around bookstores and the funky, thriving downtown scene (sure, it obviously caters to mostly rich, granola skiing families, but it was still fun!) and eating..Mmmm, I'm honestly getting hungry just thinking about it! Our favorite discovery though was "Granny's Doughnuts." Just a hole in the wall, with barely enough room for two tables, the place was still hopping! Ironically, it the business of the head baker- the grandpa behind Granny's Doughnuts. And what he made was nothing fancy just- good, down-home doughnuts done really, really right."Everyman's food," he called it. The best part was, he let little kids put on their own icing and sprinkles; can you imagine my surprise when the 7 year old in line in front of us, refused! Sadly, we were not given that option, but the doughnuts were still pretty good.
One of my favorite parts of the trip though was getting to wear this skirt- we've been having some of the most mild weather imaginable- like it was April, not February! So I braved a skirt (Look, Ma! No tights!). This skirt was actually much trickier to style than originally anticipated. It's just so darn- poofy. You have to be careful not to top it off with anything oversized or loose at all. Even tucked in, it could make you look like a marshmallow. Plus, the skirt is such a statement on its own, everything else needed to be simple to balance things out. But I loved wearing it. People literally stopped me in the street to say how much they liked my skirt. And, my funny valentine liked it just fine too, so there's always that!
How was your weekend; do share! ;)
