On Wednesday evening, we celebrated Pj's birthday at mom's house with a delicious Mexican food feast and gooey butter cake from Little O's Old Time Soda Fountain.

 My sister helped me with the decorations for her baby shower. I am usually awesome with party themes but this time, I couldn't think of any good ideas for a unique baby shower so we had a "shower" themed shower with umbrellas and raindrops and clouds. Cute, huh?

 While hanging out at mom's house, I wore a comfy 50's style outfit inspired by this adorable gal on Pinterest.
EDIT: Thank you to Mary Deluxe who knew the identity of this gal, It's Lorna Lou from Stars and Sparrows Photography! You rock, Mary!!

I had planned on going in jeans and one of Pj's tee shirts because the weather had me feeling "blah" but I really wanted an excuse to wear my new bowling pin brooch from Luxulite that arrived in the mail that day. How cute is this?! I am a huge fan of Luxulite jewelry-  adorable, authentically styled and affordable (and the artist, Katy is just a doll!). I'll have to show you my cute Luxulite acorn brooch next time.

I promised myself last year that I'd stop buying shoes at the thrift store unless it's some epic pair of 40's wedges in my size or something. Then, I spotted these loafers the day Pj wanted to go to the thrift store a few weeks ago.

They are so comfortable, easy to wear and go with everything. Seriously, everything! I've worn them with 40's dresses or skirt and blouse ensembles, with my Heyday trousers and now with jeans. Love them.
 I'm going to try to hunt down a store that sells them and when I do, I will let you know because everyone should have a pair!

I'm also loving this easy hairstyle. I was in a hurry that day so I used my hot sticks but I think I shall have to do a pin curl tutorial for it, what do you think?
