A Fancy Flea? Who Knew?

Some of the finds at the market, and some yummy cupcakes we eyeballed during lunch at Fresco's!

The family, Courtney and I, and me with a bag of the BEST blueberries I have ever tasted!

My prize: an orange vintage bag in perfect condition! Happiness!
The Fancy Flea is a vintage home and garden market set up in the middle of beautiful downtown  Lakeland. It only happens twice a year and my friend Courtney and I have made it a tradition to attend together. It's like being on a treasure hunt with sensory overload. There is so much to see, and this time there were even MORE vendors! My husband brought the kids and joined us for a bit before our girly lunch. The kids had a blast bouncing on bounce houses in the park, drinking fresh squeezed lemonade, and helping me pick out produce! Courtney found a variety of goodies to finish up her little cutie's nursery, and I bought the adorable orange bag shown above. We had lunch outside at Fresco's Bakery, and ran into many fun friends! How was your weekend? Any highlights?

Shabby Apple

Dresses from Shabby Apple

Super excited to have been asked to be part of the Shabby Apple affiliate program! From clothing to accessories I absolutely LOVE the vintage flare. They even carry maternity....which I will NOT be needing, but maybe some of you will! The Mad Hatter collection is definitely a fave of mine! Take a look and let me know your picks! Happy Saturday!

Today required a quick outfit pick. I did not plan ahead, so I found myself scrambling. I realize it appears as if I failed to iron also. You will have to forgive me, as my little girl had a dentist appointment first thing this morning and did NOT do well. The wrinkles are from cuddling with her. The anesthesia made her very sick to her tummy. She's sleeping soundly now, allowing time for this quick post. In my opinion when in a rush, bright colors and denim do the trick every time. What's your go to rush look?

Runway or Runaway??

Sneak peak of my dress: Marshalls. Belt: Banana Republic

LOVED this Dress and her Loubi's

The super fabulous and super thin Neiman Marcus models :) 
Okay so I didn't run away. Well...maybe a little bit. I went on a cruise with 30 of my most fabulous friends. Upon my return, I have experienced vertigo...which has put a kink in my everyday plans. I did rally long enough to go to our local museum's fashion show featuring beautiful clothing from Neiman Marcus. In awe as usual, I found it hard not to drool as the models walked by. Mostly neutral tones, but fun pops of color here and there as well. Red bottom shoes made a special appearance and did not disappoint! I did miss the live band that typically plays, and the outdoor lounge area was such a nice touch in the past! I also prefer the pod style modeling in this type of environment so that you can ask questions about the clothes, designers, etc. BUT overall, I can't complain...once again, the labels came to little ol' Lakeland and that's good enough for me!

Helped my fabulous friend today with a presentation for the Antique Club
So what have I been up to since I obviously have not been blogging??? Tennis! My brother surprised my sweet mom and I with tickets to the Sony Ericsson Open this past weekend in Key Biscayne, Miami. It was BEAUTIFUL! He even topped it off with tickets to the Hospitality Terrace. We saw the women's and men's finals, along with the men's doubles. I even took my mom on her first tour of South Beach. She was totally overwhelmed...hee hee! She thinks I am silly for worrying with fashion and accessories as you can see, she sported my dad's Columbia shirt! You have to love her! Today I helped my friend Courtney with a presentation at a local Antique Club meeting. She did amazing and her tips for adding vintage flare to modern wardrobe had the ladies super excited! Hopefully she will be styling some of their closets soon! Hope everyone survived this manic Monday, have a GREAT week!  :)
