Thank God I'm a Country Girl

I'm so happy to have my parents here for a little Easter weekend visit.  In our family, the months of March and April are filled with festivities, starting with my birthday, followed by my parents' anniversary, then my anniversary, then my dad's birthday, my father in law's birthday.....you get the picture: spring is action packed.  Today, we headed to Niagara Falls, but I forgot the darn battery for the camera in the charger, so didn't take any pics of the day.  To be honest, we didn't stay long.  This afternoon was more enjoyable as hubby and I went for a little walk in the country.  The weather right now is UNBELIEVEABLE!  It's gone from winter to summer around here in the blink of an eye.  Today temperatures got up to + 25 C!!  Better try to get out and wear my spring gear before I have to pack it away to make room for shorts and play suits!  Anyway, I should get back to playing hostess, but here are snaps of me in an outfit inspired by my last posts about "going country."  Dress is 1940s from Dear Golden Vintage; purse is 1950s; bangle is 1930s; shoes 1950s.  I really do love being able to take leisurely walks near old barns down old country roads.  More soon!

The weather is crazy here too! A week ago I was wearing long sleeves, now I want to sit in front of a fan all day. Have fun with your parents!

I remember when that dress was in Laurens shop! I have one that is very similar, color, print and 1940s. It looks stunning on you!
Happy Easter!

You look stunning, as usual. Lovely photos. It's still getting to at least 25C here. I want Autumn!

Thanks!! I don't wear green very often and was happy to discover this particular dress doesn't make me look as sickly as some other colors of green do!

I'm trying to enjoy every moment of this weather, as I just have a feeling it's too good to be true!

I love the first picture. You always seem out of another era yet perfectly modern, fresh and very thoughtfully well put-together. Love your style!

You look marvelous, honey! I think this is one of my favourite frocks of yours to date (green suits you fantastically, it really brings out the beautiful hues in your skin and hair).
