Arrows & Antlers

When I met up with some of my friends to see Frozen earlier this month a few of us exchanged Christmas presents. Yes, you read right, Christmas presents.  A series of events between the three of us prevented us from seeing one another during December and January, but my presents were well worth the wait! One gave me hair arrows, and another gave me an antler sweater clip, both were items that I had pinned on Pinterest.

I must say, along with being a great way to keep track of hairstyles and craft ideas, Pinterest is also a pretty dandy wishlist too.  I had also looked to friends’ Pinterest boards seeking items to buy them for the holiday.

I won’t lie, I had a terrible time attempting the classic “chopstick bun”. I’ve just simply never done it before! But I’m learning and I’m sure, like with most hair styles, with time and practice, I’ll get better.

Today I did some running around, mainly packing and shipping Etsy orders, but I also popped into The Nordstorm Rack, as I knew they occasionally have Minnetonkas at pretty low prices, and came home with another pair. However, the remainder of the day is being spent cleaning, as we gear up for our trip to Palm Springs next week. And speaking the trip and Etsy, this is a good time to mention that The Atomic Hideaway will be going into Vacation Mode on Tuesday! All orders need to be placed prior to Tuesday evening.  All orders will be shipped on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, I’m going to Expo tomorrow!  I really haven’t been out and about this last week as I’ve been needing to save up!  I hope it’s a good one!

  1. You look beautiful. What great gifts! Gosh I miss Nordstrom rack. Thanks to you reintroducing me to Minnetokas, I wear them daily, so comfy. Hope to see lots of pictures of Palm Springs.

  2. Really lovely outfit! Blue, especially teal-ish blues like this, are so incredibly gorgeous on you (they compliment your hair colour to no end). I adore outfits like this that were able to come together because of gifts from dear friends. One can’t help but feel extra warm and fuzzy inside while wearing them.

    Have an amazing time at Expo!

  3. You look just stunning! I like the hair arrows (what a fun way to add feathers) and antler sweater clips, they’re both very you. As usual, your dress is amazing, and I never knew that I needed a tooled leather purse until you started featuring them with your outfits…

  4. AAAH, even in February, what gorgeous Xmas presents! I particularly like the sweater clips! STELLAR outfit (I have a patio dress in this same turquoise and silver rick rack configuration; have half a mind to take this outfit as inspiration for a future one of my own!). 🙂

  5. That dress is perfection!!! Squaw dresses have the most beautiful details and the brilliant shade of blue of this dress looks so stunning on you!
