midweek menagerie

It was Luke's birthday(28!) so we went to see Transformers at our historic theater in town. Not my favorite movie but I'm kind of in love with Shia LaBeouf so I didn't mind seeing it, plus birthday boy got to choose! Of course the girl replacing Megan Fox is a gorgeous Victoria's Secret model. I heard Shia asked for a more "bookish" kind of guy! Our theater, The Lincoln, was built in the 1920's and is so amazing inside! I adore the deco details and I want to get some photos of the inside soon, it has the most amazing old dark red velvet curtain that slowly lifts when it's movie time!  The original admission for adults was 27¢ for the balcony and 36¢ for the main floor, 4.50 matinees are still a steal. Originally a vaudeville and silent movie theater,a young Ginger Rodgers and The Marx brothers even appeared here!

 We went to dinner at the new seafood place in town and Luke had the tuna steak he's been eyeing on the menu since the first time we went. I had a yummy lobster roll sandwich and the most amazing cucumber martini, my new favorite drink!

Ahi Tuna steak with soy/sesame glaze

My man from back in the day..Mr. Even Stevens looking scruffed up in Details magazine. I adore Carey Mulligan and she dated him for a year, I can't be the only one who thinks he's adorable and a really good actor?! I used to watch "Even Stevens" everyday after school and developed a small crush haha

I got a great deal(dsw) on the blowfish Garren sandals in black- one 8.5 left!

and the Gimik in dark brown, 1/2 off plus free shipping!

They have a few pairs left! These are seriously the most comfortable platforms I've ever worn..I've been wearing them daily, I'm obsessed!

We stopped by our local farmer's market for some fresh veggies, I love being able to buy from the actual people that grow the produce and supporting the local farms. Our little garden is growing everyday, we even have little baby watermelons..can't wait to pick fruits and veggies from our own yard!

                   I hope everyone is having a great week!

It was a super stormy weekend so most of our time was spent indoors watching old movies. Jack Lemmon is one of my favorite funny old actors and he has the same birthday as me and Lana Turner..February 8th!  We watched a few french films from the 60's, I adore Anna Karina and Jean-Luc Godard is one of my favorite directors. The food at our local french restaurant Le Sweet Caffe is so yummy and I love the candle lit coziness and the beatiful old stained glass..mmm crepes! We were able to get our bikes out for a bit before the rain came in, I love riding on the old cobblestone streets through our historic's like going back in time. I'm really loving gold statement rings lately and my favorites are the jade from Topshop and the filigree knuckle ring from F21. My new satchel came in and it matches my Dany platforms perfectly..I love online shopping!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Girl Crush: Ellie Goulding

This 24 yr old singer-songwriter from London is one of my favorites..I'm having major hair envy! Not only is she uniquely gorgeous but she has the most beautiful voice. I love her indie electro-folk-pop sound and her confident fierceness. Her style is a crazy eclectic mix of glamour and her!

This weekend was spent at the flea market searching for vintage treasures, working on the house, and watching the fireflies take over the yard. I've been looking for the perfect basket for my retro bike and flowy maxi skirts are so effortless for summer, love them!

I love the details on my floral F21 dress and my vintage magnifying glass necklace actually works!
