AEO Cap / Old Navy Jacket / Elizabeth and James Sweater (thrifted) / Isabel Marant Skirt (ebay) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay) / Mulberry Alexa (second hand on ebay) Aritiza Wool Scarf (thrifted)
I'm surprised I haven't worn this skirt with this sweater before, they're almost made for each other. I really liked the vibe of this with the cap and the boots and this coat is surprisingly warm against those cold spring winds we've been getting.
We just started our starts for the summer garden and it's so much fun to buy some new planters for my flowers this year! I found some beautiful enameled pots for my palm and big house plants and then bought some big ceramic pots for the kids to paint and then plant their own flowers in. Our little duck also just started laying her eggs which is quite exciting, we were begging to think it just wasn't going to happen with her. She's such a cute little friendly duck that it didn't really matter if she was going to lay eggs or not, she's firmly in the "pet" camp as opposed to our big pig that is now in the freezer. We'd gotten a big pig about 2 months ago (we don't really know what she was and the previous owners didn't know, she looked like a mix of a Big Black and something else) and while I have quite a lot of experience with handling and caring for large animals, I've discovered that I really loathe pigs. We butchered out the pig a little while back and while it's lovely to have the meat, especially as we didn't get a moose last season, I don't know if I'd ever want to do that again. Maybe sucklings but I might be a hard sell on that one. Team ducks and goats all the way.
