Flightless Bird

Fall break is here! Granted, we only get off school from Saturday to Tuesday, I go to school six days a week so that lets me skip three classes! I am working tomorrow and Sunday for a few hours, but I have a fun weekend planned. Tonight Patrick and I are going to see Joe Pug at the Attucks Theater in Norfolk, tomorrow I'm hanging out with Shelby and then Danielle, and Sunday after work I will probably just relax with Patrick! Tuesday I'm finally taking pictures with a friend to update my shop & I'm getting more red in my hair & a cut!

The other day, Patrick and I went to have lunch at Town Center, which is the "urban" area of Virginia Beach.  Really, it's just a square with about 4 street's worth of shops and restaurants.  A new soup/sandwich shop had opened up and I was really in the mood for a good soup. Unfortunately, the menu online failed to mention the soups weren't offered daily, only a selection of two. Of course the soup I wanted wasn't the daily special, so I had a tomato and mozzarella sandwich. It wasn't anything spectacular and I've had better. The restaurant layout was really strange, too. It was supposed to be a sandwich shop but it had an overall upscale vibe, which made me a little uncomfortable to be honest! In the back of the restaurant, there was a "market" and we were expecting a variety of wines, cheeses, etc., but instead we found Advil, boxed rice, and orange juice. Quite the variety, eh?

Desert was much better, though! We headed over to The Royal Chocolate and indulged in some truffles (pumpkin, tiramasu, white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, and caramel!) and some spicy mayan dark hot chocolate. Delicious!

 This cape was a recent thrift store find. At first, I immediately thought it would be going into the shop because I didn't think I could pull it off.  However, after this outfit, I'm so torn! I think it will be having a little home in my closet, at least for now...

I am unbelievably excited to wear tights again. They can make outfits so much more interesting & they are one of my favorite things to buy! I'm really looking for more sweater wool tights this year, I only have one pair but I found myself wearing them ALL the time last year when it got really cold, even when they didn't match! I'd also like to find some cute printed tights.. perhaps with little deer or other adorable animals all over? Let me know if you have any tight/legging shops to suggest!
