I Want To Dream Away With You Tonight
Hello there! This was a fun weekend, since it was Zak's birthday. Hoorah! We spent the most of the weekend together, and it was so lovely going out, staying in, being silly, playing games, and just having fun. We didn't get to see the movie he wanted to see (It's Kind of a Funny Story) due to crazy movie schedules in which the movie only plays on certain days of the week (so weird!), but I think and hope he had a great time. On Friday, we went out on the town, got yummy Japanese food, walked around, and got some hot chocolate. I gave him his gifts (this print and tickets to the NY philharmonic) and presented him with some special cupcakes I made for him. I didn't take many pictures this weekend, but you can see the cupcakes at the bottom of the post :)
Skirt (dress): Modcloth, Top:H&M, Tights: Hues, Belt: Delia's, Oxfords: Steve Madden
So, I wore this on Friday for our little night out. I've been feeling really dependent on wearing solely new things in my closet lately, so it was nice to put this outfit together. I got this dress for my birthday last year and I haven't been wearing it that much since it's a little hard for me to style/layer. So, I decided to try it as a skirt and I really like the result. I've had this shirt in my closet for even longer, and I rarely wear it, so I was happy to find a new way to wear it :)
Oh! And I wanted to show you guys the cupcakes I made for Zak. I melted some butterscotch, let it harden, and carved out mustaches and stegosauruses to put on top of the cupcakes. I think they turned out pretty well! This is exciting, since at some point in my life I want to open a literary themed cupcake bakery (Robert Frost-ing, anyone?)
I hope you all had lovely weekends! Did you do anything special?
