What is the first thing you think about when you think of Easter?
This year my friend and I decided to visit the butterfly conservatory in Cambridge.
I wanted to wear this...
To show off my Vince Camuto sandal booties my husband gave me.
Instead I had to wear this
Coat - DKNY, Boot - consignment, Dress- Zara (0ld), Clutch - Danier
Because I was unsure of the weather.
In the end I left my coat in the car when we were at the conservatory because it was 25C inside the conservatory and felt more like 30C with the humidity.
Watching the quail cross the road.
And no, I don't know what he did when he got to the other side.
Remember when I told you I recently went speed consignment store shopping? These boots are one of the items I snagged. I literally walked into the shop, we had zero time to browse as we wanted to catch a movie, saw these right away, asked my girlfriend how much time we had, she said "Maybe four minutes", and I said, "Okay, just enough time to buy these boots."
She said afterwards that she thought I was kidding.
I kid about all kinds of things, but sexy leather boots regular $250 now $48?
I do not joke about that.
Can you see the butterfly in the photo below?
I thought that by dressing like a flower I might have more luck with them landing on me.
Also...FYI...you'd never guess it...but I'm wearing this dress backwards.
This is what the front looks like,
I flipped it because I like the colour up near my face.
Back to the butterflies...
We weren't able to capture one of the very beautiful blue butterflies with their wings open. They are just stunning, shipped in from Costa Rica where I was lucky enough while there to see them flying in the wild.
Naughty butterflies getting their sexy on.
I hope the male had a really good time since they often die soon after mating. There is a joke in there but I'm not doing it. Keeping it classy folks.
Did you know that when a butterfly emerges from the chysalis that its tongue is in two pieces? It has to unfurl the tongue and zip it together. You can see the curly tongue here.

Hazel was even wearing a butterfly necklace.
Cute shoes right? I picked them out for her...along with everything else she is wearing, but she put it all together.
#Proud personal stylist.
After we went for brunch at Langdon Hall. One of our favourite places for opulence and good food.
The weather was gorgeous by then so I was able to ditch my coat.
This martini was heaven!
We sent back the other drink and got another martini.
The other one was described as tasting like peaches but just tasted like very bad moonshine. Or what I imagine very bad moonshine tastes like.
This was Hazel's dessert plate. She nabbed the last profiterole. If I'd have known I would have fought her for it.
After we stopped in Cambridge at a HUGE overwhelming antique mall called Southworks.
No photos of that though and although I thought seriously about buying some wonderful drop earrings in the end I felt I could do better at an estate sale. Sometimes those antique malls are very overpriced I find.
What did you end up doing on your Easter weekend?
