Brisk Birthday


Yesterday was Mr. Dear Golden's birthday, so there was much fun planned including a cider mill trip, cocktails and dinner at a super pretty and romantic Polish restaurant called Amadeus, to more cocktails with friends at another super cozy place we like to go. It wasn't easy trying to figure out what to wear that would go from chilly day at a cider mill to dinner and drinks. I decided to wear his favorite dress of mine that I recently bought at my favorite vintage shop. It's a early 1960s pumpkin orange wool wiggle dress that fits like a dream. I would have normally paired it with heels, but since it was cold and the cider mill is no place for heels, I wore some boots which also modernized the dress some. I feel like this dress is something Banana Republic would sell in a minute, they do some really nice classic early 1960s styling.

boots - Little Byrd Vintage on Etsy
gloves - from my mother





Two silly shots from the cider mill, it was very windy and way colder than we wanted it to be. There were these weird midget trees that had this super giant apples on them, the trees were so small it was bizarre to us that they could even bear the weight of these huge apples.
