Outfit of the Day: 3.15

We've been having (what I'm told is) unusually warm weather here in Minnesota. I've been adjusting very slowly to this frozen tundra land, so a whole week of 60 degree temperatures and sunny days felt like a Godsend.

Knowing that we would have gorgeous warm weather this week, I planned for a glorious weekend of sun dresses and picnics.  I pulled out one of my favorite sun dresses to welcome spring. But it was a little premature to completely do away with scarves and cardigans. And I'm too wimpy to pull out the sandals.

I thought I had finally figured out how to take clear pictures with my phone. I was wrong. 

Dress: The Limited (old) | Cardigan: Loft (similar) | Scarf: Target (old)| Shoes: Hush Puppies (my wedding shoes!)

Can I just say that choosing flats for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made that weekend? Like, my list of good decisions that day was:

1. Eating waffles
2. Marrying Kenny
3. Wearing comfortable flats.

I highly recommend comfy shoes. Anyway...

Decked out in sunny attire, Kenny and I visited French Meadow Bakery here in the Twin Cities. We had a fabulous meal - toasted croissant sandwich with eggs, cheese, bacon, greens, and guacamole. The real goal of the outing was to eat pie for pi day, but tragically, French Meadow had only cakes and tarts. What kind of bakery doesn't sell pie on pi day??

Later that day, we packed a picnic of sandwiches and Nutella cups and headed south to visit Northfield, which is one of the cutest towns I've ever seen. I'm in love. Northfield is home to two small liberal arts colleges, St. Olaf and Carleton. Carleton was just overwhelmingly adorable. I want to just permanently move into a cute apartment above one of the local coffee shops and visit the Historical Society Museum every single day. Isn't that what people do in adorable small towns?

The building on the right? A POST OFFICE.

We finished off the day with an episode of House of Cards and Hershey's Chocolate Creme PIE!

How did you celebrate pi day?
