Saturday stroll

Saturdays Sam and I both have the day off from work, so we usually stay home, or stay around town, at least while it's still dreary out. This weekend I had to get some fresh air, so we went for a walk in a nearby neighborhood that has lots of nice old houses, and big mossy trees. We met some new kitties, saw lots of flowers, and I pouted when I saw an old bungalo for sale that advertised "Newly remodeled!"

We also stopped by our old alley and took some pics, I miss that backdrop so much! It was perfect.

This is what I've been wearing a lot lately, it's that time of year where I'm uninspired to make much of an effort. Black cigarette pants and a striped shirt are something I know looks good and I don't have to think about it. And for the winter chill still in the air I added one of Sam's jackets and a hat I just got, which is luckily too small for Sam so he can't steal it ;)

Also, a candid set of me attempting to sit on a wall. Or rather "pictures of me falling into strangers yards". (We laughed for quite a bit, hehe)

Oh my god. The second one in the falling-off-a-wall set, where you're absolutely ass over teakettle, is priceless. If I had a picture of myself in that attitude, I'd frame it and hang it on the wall.

Beautiful shots, the ones of you falling are so cute! Put a smile on my face! (though I hope you didn't hurt yourself! then I'd feel very guilty about laughing) I need to find myself a pair of cig pants, as yours are fabulous and I love how effortlessly chic they are!

Falling into someone's yard has never looked like so much fun!!!! You look fabulous as always!

art deco dame said...

stripes and capris are always classic.Glad you didn't hurt yourself so now I don't feel bad about laughing.I'm horridly klutzy so that is something that would have happened to me easily.

I'm so sorry..... I shouldn't laugh, but those photos were hilarious! I was in tears from laughing so hard! I hope you were ok. God I'm awful! I'm glad to hear that you and Sam had a lovely weekend (apart from falling off walls ;)).

I really like this look, it's very cute! ahah my verification word is "caties", is that sort of like kittens? LOL

Frankly My Dear said...

these photos are so... how do I put it? full of life about sums it up.
i always love wearing my grandad's hat, like the one you're wearing.
loving the pants as well.

K8 said...

Too cute. You made me laugh. Were you sad because the bungalow had been remodled by someone else (ie not you) or becuase it had been remodled...not left alone? Ps. Love the hat!!

Vintage Vicky said...

These pics are great! I love all your outfit posts but I mostly like to see what you wear on casual days :-) I guess with vintage we are so used to seeing people dressed up to the nines as not much casual wear survives so it is great to see how you put these outfits together.
This outfit reminds me a little bit of Jean Seberg in 'À bout de souffle'.

casey said...

hehe!! These are so fun! Especially the falling-over ones; totally something that would happen to me. ;)

These are so adorable!! Falling has never looked like so much fun, haha! That outfit is too cute, as well.

Michelle said...

hahaha! You look super cute. I fall over all the time, the best thing to do is laugh about it!

jojography said...

Really love that outfit, because it shows such a simple, but chic way of dressing. Though I have to say that this is the time of the year I'm most inspired to dress up (I spent two hours last night raiding my closet to find some new combinations).

Tasha said...

The falling over ones are hilarious, but I also like the one of you jumping up in the air. At first the photo seemed normal, but then I scrolled down and noted your feet up in the air. Cute!

Deni said...

Oh, you look so darling. Very Audrey Hepburn in the country side. The pictures of you falling in to the garden are so cute, I'm sitting here laughing to myself. Sounds like a sweet and relaxing Sunday.

Haha oh my goodness! Those last pictures are utterly gorgeous! looks like a laugh, and a hellava good time.
I love you're outfit, too! I have a thing for tweed at the moment; I'm reading Sherlock Holmes and it seems to set the mood wonderfully :) That pipe seems appropriate, too :D

I have a question, does Sam like Vintage clothes as much as you do, or not really?
Thanks =]

Solanah said...

K8, I was pouting because it had been remodeled to look new.

Solanah said...

Free spirit, he likes more classic styles for himself, but does really like the 30s look :)
