Around Town

06 January 2012










Oh boy was yesterday a wonderful day out and about in none other than Springfield, Missouri. I always have a good time in this town, A.) because it's cool, and B.) I always come here to visit my boyfriend's awesome family. Yesterday we spent the day out and about with Ryan's mom and his sister, going to places that are unique to the town. We went to this amazing/adorable crepe place first, called the Aviary Cafe where we had delicious Pomme Frites (as pictured above) and for lunch I had an egg-basil-cheese-caramelized onions crepe. Seriously so good! As if this wasn't enough food I just had to stop by the cupcake shop next door and get myself a red velvet cupcake. The addiction following my cake pop one.

Anyways after visiting a few neat antique shops and such we stopped by the grand finale, Red Velvet vintage shop (everything pictured from the terrariums and below)! So I am sure many of you are familiar with Elsie from A Beautiful Mess... this is her adorable shop! The shopping experience is truly enchanting there, covered in amazing displays and of course beautiful vintage clothing. And the twist is that there is a sweets shop at red velvet with candy and cupcakes galore. After meeting Elsie (a complete sweetheart) she sent me home with an adorable over-sized dotted clutch. What a lovely gift from an even lovelier girl!

I hope you all have a wonderful day as well!

So jealous you got to see Red Velvet in person! I love the sparkly sweater, especially in the cupcake photo where the camera focused on the sparkly sleeves instead of the cupcake. Thanks for sharing your little adventure & have a great weekend!

I never knew that was such cute stuff in Springfield, MO! I'm from St. Louis, and it was always dreaded to go to Springfield, but only because I didn't know anything exciting was there! But maybe next time I'm there I'll check out the crepe shop! xx

The cute little story book really takes me back. I recently won some Ladybird postcards so must look through them to see if Pinocchio is in there! So nostalgic x

I share your love for red velvet cupcakes. I'm actually glad there's not a god cupcake shop in my neighborhood because I'd be as big as a house.

But anyway looks like such a fun day you had. Love the pics and your accessories, including your brand new (to you) clutch!

Phara said...

Red velvet cupcakes are the best and they make me think of the Hummingbird bakery in London, which is always good. Love that jumper, especially combined with the cream blouse, very beautiful!
