Hello!!! I don't know about any of you, but I am SO excited that we finally get to do this theme! (yes, I know the delay is originally my fault, but I'm excited all the same!). I think I've had my outfit picked out since day 1. ;-) My sister took my picture for me. She did an amazing job, even with the issues we were having (windy day, bright sunlight, cats and dogs begging to climb all over me...)

Oh, and just a quick note to say THANK YOU  to all of my followers! I can't believe that I've reached 100. Never ever thought that I'd do that. So, thank you so very much for following my blog! :-)

Samantha's Specs:
Top - Kohls (Apt. 9)
Skirt - Junee
Scarf - Gift
Shoes - Kohls
Hat - Thrifted (only $1 and brand new!)

My Specs:
Hat- Antique shop (I was originally going to go with a red cloche, one that matched Samantha's-and no, we didn't plan it- but when my mom saw this other hat, she said it looked better with the outfit. :-)
Cardigan/sweater/thingy- Thrift store
Tank- Walmart
Cami- Kohls
Skirt- Thrift Store
Shoes- Walmart
Scarf- gift from a dear friend
Brooch- gift from my grandmother
Earrings- gift from siblings
Gloves- Antique shop, gift from a friend
Pearl rope (around my hair)- inherited from great-grandmother.

For anyone who might be wondering, I got the typewriter from my grandpa (as you can see, it still works. In fact, I've written letters to people using it). I got the suitcase from an Antique shop (same one as the hat).

Yesterday was rather fun! My sister and I got up early and got ready to do a photo shoot. It was pretty difficult to get some good pictures, only because of the weather (which I mentioned before). However, being such a good photographer, she was able to get some nice shots of me, regardless of the elements! ;-)  We came back from doing that, looked at all the pictures, did some editing, then had a few things to do around the house. By the time we were done, we needed to head out to go visit some friends. The parents went on a double date and we kids got together to enjoy some time together as well. :-) We had a blast... even made a spontaneous, total ad-lib movie. Well, part of a movie. We set it during the 1860s. They had some Civil War dresses, so it worked out perfectly. They just let me borrow a 'dress up' dress. It was loads of fun to do! :-) So, needless to say, I'm extremely sorry that I didn't get a hair post up yesterday.... ;-)

Alright! Can't wait to see your out fits!
