Hello there! April went by so quickly, and I'm glad it's May! The weather is consistently staying warmer, although there can be days where the high is 55, and days where it's almost 80. I'm so glad it's not freeizing cold in the mornings anymore, though. Usually the jacket or coat I picked out to wear in the morning, I definitely don't need in the afternoon.
Our trip to Vegas for Viva was so much fun, but as usual, went by in a blur, because we did so much. The highlights were going to the Neon Museum for our first time (which has a graveyard of old neon signs from Vegas hotels, restaurants, bars, etc.), meeting up with two longtime Instagram friends of mine; I had never met them in person before, going to Frankie's Tiki Room, which is our favorite bar anywhere, going to Peppermill, my favorite restaurant in Vegas (so kitschy and cute!), seeing the Charles Phoenix slideshow (our third time doing so), and of course shopping and seeing the live music!
We also visited a couple of restaurants we had never been to in Vegas before, and we loved both of them so much that we went a few times to each of them. McMullan's is an Irish pub located next to the Orleans (where Viva is held); the food, drink, and service are great, and we heard a wonderful Irish singer the one night we were there. I'm so charmed by the Irish accent and Irish music. I just know I'm going to cry when we get to Ireland; I'll be so overwhelmed by it all.
I really waned to go to the Nashville Boogie this month, even though Bob won't go this time, I was going to go by myself, but in the end I decided I shouldn't spend the money. I'm hoping we'll be going away to Cape May and Wildwood for a long weekend for our 5th wedding anniversary next month, possibly going to Massachusetts in July for a weekend, and then of course our Europe trip in the fall, so between all of that, that's a substanial amount of money we'll be spending in the near future.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my Charles Phoenix/Pinup Girl Clothing collaboration fish Jenny dress that I got a year ago. I seriously love wearing this dress. It fits better than the rest of my Jennys, too. I love a good theme, so naturally I can't resist pairing the dress with my Match Accessories fish necklace and my Enid Collins fishy purse! Too much?? NEVER!
I really only wear this dress in the late spring and summer, so I want to get as much wear out of it as possible during that time.
