I'm the Toast of Paris - in my own Backyard!

Hey Guys,

I wore this outfit to my mom's house on Mother's Day. My sister and I made my mom some dinner, which she really liked.

I've never been to Paris, but I've always loved the Eiffel Tower and I really want to travel there one day soon. There's just something so romantic about it. I've been thinking of doing a Paris theme outfit for a while now, ever since I got my Eiffel Tower earrings, but when I found this Paris scarf at the Salvation Army, it sealed the deal and I just had to put something together.

I will be doing some more theme posts soon - think elephants and New York City! Not together, lol. In two seperate posts. That would be a weird combo!

After doing a bit of research, I learned that the scarf I got for 50 cents is actually from Paris, and it's silk and vintage from the 50s! What a find. I love thrifting. So exciting what you can get if you know what to look for and aren't opposed to a little rifling.

@jaz - I LOVE Madeline! So cute. I want her yellow hat with the ribbon on it! LOL.

@youlikemylipstick - I would love to! I plan on making it there eventually, but I'm still a student so time and money are limited at the moment. But I will see Paris one day.

@jess - That's what Peter said. He was like "you know you're the Yoko Ono of your family, right?" I laughed. It's weird that these sunglasses look so Yoko with the beret, but without it, I didn't even think of Yoko at all. Funny...

Thanks for all the love everyone! Comments are my favourite thing ever. :D
