While it is very pretty, the novelty quickly wears off and the practicality of gettting out and about rears its head. It isn't a far walk to Lawrence & Carollyne's house, but I had to wear something warm:
Layers are the key: I have a t-shirt on underneath this. I put the shoes in my bag and walked in my boots, but unfortunately, it was a "no shoe" house, so I had frozen toes for a few hours.
A close-up of the vintage jewelry:
Both the necklace and the bracelet are by Coro. The necklace is from the late 50s, I think (Grandma J's) and the bracelet is from the late 60s (Mom's).
