Knight of Style 12-28-09

Knight of Style 12-28-09

Occasion: Lunch and some vintage shopping with the boy's grandparents.
Skirt: Vera Wang Lavender Label (via Gilt)
Shirt: Forever 21 (love this shirt, it is ver verestile)
Cardigan: vintage from nanapatproject (blogged about here)
Belt: Forever 21
Boots: Steve Madden (had forever and are a staple in my wardrobe)

Sorry these pictures are not was freezing, very windy (note my hair) and I kept sinking in the snow to above my boots. Funny story though, my amazing boy pulled over on the side of the road so we could jump out and take these pictures while there was still sunlight, in doing so we got the truck stuck in the snow. Thirty minutes after trying to dig and push it out we ended up being able to reverse out of the rut we created! We got a good laugh!

The boy and I traveled three hours to the other side of Wisconsin to meet his grandparents and aunt for lunch. We ate at this amazing resturant called Pies Are Squared. They, as you may have guessed, make square pies. We had a piece of wood turtle and it was awesometastic! The boys grandparents are not what you call normal grandparents. They are very active for their age and have amazing style ( I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of the amazing outfit his grandma had on today!!!!!!!!!) They are big on women dressing like women and keeping the "air of femininity". They insisted that we go across the street to Wild Woman Clothing and I try on clothes. They bought me two amazing bcbg dresses, two pair of shoes, a totally fantastic fasinator and a turkey feather shurg. They made me feel like a million dollars through out this process and I am very grateful and appreciative for what they did. The boys family is absolutely amazing and I am grateful to know them.
Hope everyone else's vacation is going awesome.
