This weekend my boyfriend took me to Columbus, OH to see Cirque Du Soleil! It was his gift to me for our anniversary. We spent the whole day in Columbus, starting with a delicious brunch at a place called “Knead“. We chose this place because it was all freshly made with locally produced ingredients. It was a pretty cute place and the food was delicious! I had gingerbread pancakes — YUM!

This dress makes me so incredibly happy! The color is so vibrant and the full skirt is so fun to run around in. It kinda makes me feel like I’m wearing a costume, but I don’t care! I love it too much! It’s got to be the best thing I’ve ever found at a thrift shop. AND a bonus was that it was super cheap because the zipper was falling out. Took me all of 10 minutes to fix that!

After Brunch we walked to COSI!

It’s a super fun science museum I hadn’t been too since elementary school, and I was way excited to go back! We had tons of hands-on science-y fun. [PS. Brian loves that sweater and wears it everywhere lol :p]

There was a cool exhibit called “Progress”, and they had a whole 1950s town set up. We decided to take advantage of the 50s scenery since I was wearing a 50s dress, and snagged a few photos!

OKAY. So. Cirque Du Soleil. First off, let me tell you, it was absolutely one of THE most amazing things I’ve ever seen! Neither of us really knew what to expect, or if it would actually be cool, and it far exceeded both of our expectations! It was beautiful and impressive, the “clowns” were hilarious, and the acrobatic stunts were terrifying and flawless! The overall theme was actually kind of dark and eerie, which we loved, and the music and costumes made it feel like we were watching some little Russian circus in the middle of no where 100 years ago — amazing.

Basically, we had a great mini weekend get away. :] Sometimes, those are the best kinds of vacations!

Absolutely loving ORANGE lately! I never used to be a huge orange fan, but orange accessories and home accents make for a great pop of color. I wouldn’t go crazy and paint every wall in my house orange or anything, just in small doses it brings in a good amount of fun! Specifically loving that vintage Braun KF20 coffee pot that I originally stumbled upon on FRSHGRND. While it probably brews a pretty standard pot of coffee, it’s 1970’s-futuristic design makes it totally appealing.

This dress is one of my faaavorites. It’s a young girls dress from the 60s/70s so it’s real short , but it works for me because I am real short! I especially love the Aztec pattern & colors of the fabric on the top half. It’s a great dress for Fall-Winter because of the long-sleeves and the heavy 70s polyester fabric. It was an extra fun find because it’s from Salvation Army, and not an actual vintage store! It’s always exciting to find good vintage gems in thrift stores.

I looove pastels, no matter what time of year it is! Look, even my tattoo matched my outfit. ;]  Pastels are a great way to bring some color & fun to your day even if the weather is dreary and grey. [rhyme unintentional lol]

This necklace is my faaavorite, but I couldn’t find it in this color online for you! Target.com has it in a bunch of other colors, though, and I highly recommend it. I want to buy them all!

Hope you have a wonderful evening!
