Orange Creamsicle (outfit #40)

I'm running late this week with an outfit post, so please excuse me while I play catch up.  My husband received a Governor's award for his work in Historic Preservation on Wednesday.  He's been working on some aspect of this project for roughly the last seven years, which included many night and weekends attending neighborhood meeting, writing grants, etc.  Our town now has written histories of nearly every major neighborhood!  It's such a cool way to garner neighborhood pride and get future landmarks.  He's such a hard worker, and really passionate about what he does.  I couldn't be prouder!  Needless to say, we've been really busy preparing for the awards ceremony which took place in Denver.  He was also preparing for speaking at the Saving Places Conference, which happened over the next few days.  He's a city planner rock star! :)
    I found this coral, 1950s sundress at a thrift store.  I love the button details at the waist.  My patterned cardigan is vintage Jantzen knitwear, also thrifted.  My Lucite and rhinestone bangle is from an antique store.  My beaded handbag is from a garage sale. My lipstick is Revlon's Blase Apricot, introduced in 1962.

 Happy Saturday!



  1. Huge congrats to your husband, what a wonderful honour. I love that both of you have a deep passion for the past.

    Peach looks incredible on you! Love the fun, spring/summer palette of this beautiful outfit. That cardigan is incredible!

  2. Congratulations! You really must be very proud of him. I love that colour. Goes so well with your hair. Maybe we can have a closer look to the rhinestone bangle and the beaded handbag somedays. Great finds!

  3. Congrats to your husband! That is absolutely wonderful!

    And what a color! It is marvelous on you!
