As many of you know, my fiancĂ© and I recently moved into a new place. Getting our home together has been quite the task for many reasons, a) we are on a limited budget due to the wedding, and b) starting a new job has been taking up the majority of my time and energy. None the less, decorating and organizing has been something I enjoy. 

Above is a list of items I would like to incorporate into our humble abode. Most importantly, the lamp and coffee table are on the top of that list. When I was in San Francisco last weekend, my girlfriends and I stumbled into the Johnathan Adler store on Fillmore Street, and I feel in love with his cute little mugs.  Wouldn't those be just adorable to give as house warming or bridal shower gifts?!

Ok, I gotta tackle a heap of laundry. Ciao!

Happy Thursday afternoon, Plummies! I gotta say, working for a school district sure does have it's perks! I am officially on Spring Break for the next couple of weeks. Yeeeehhhhhaaaaa! I still have clients to see in the evening hours, but hey, I will take any kind of a break I can get.

April is right around the corner, meaning: I get to celebrate another birthday and I get to attend a good friend's bachelorette party in the ever-relaxing Palm Springs! It's been a few years since I've been, so it will be nice to go back and enjoy company of great people.

Above, I put together a little ensemble of things I am planning to shove into my duffle bag. If you have been following Lady In Plum for awhile now, you've probably noticed that a) I am thrifty, and b) I live in comfortable pieces. I love the look above because the dress is not only easy to wear (and very forgiving), but its able to transition from day to evening by simply swapping the accessories. 

Are any of you on Spring Break?
Do you guys have any Palm Springs restaurant recommendations?

Adult Overalls

Is it just me, or does the thought of slipping back into overalls just get you giddy with excitement? The idea of wearing them instantly transports me back to lazy summer days a la 5th grade; wherein I didn’t have an afternoon agenda, and my biggest concerns were: figuring out an appropriate hour to start eating the otter pops in the freezer, and configuring the backyard slip and slide.

Not only does nostalgia make the idea of wearing overalls a good idea, but with all those pockets they are just down right convenient! Sure, you have to watch those straps during bathroom visits, but hey…

Good thing I kept my old ones, and I can’t wait to slip them on this weekend; Perhaps over a bathing suit on my way to the pool, or over a tank top while strolling the local farmer’s market. We shall see.

Would you “overall it” again?
