Candyland

It was another gorgeous, November day on Tuesday which called for a special trip to Candyland, our old-fashioned, St. Paul candy store. Lucy greeted us outside with a giant caramel apple.

I intentionally mis-matched my plaid dress and plaid coat. There is just a little bit of red in the coat that isn't seen in the picture. It was just enough to make me say 'yes!' to wearing both prints at the same time. I thought the styles went great together...sort of an old-fashiony vibe.

It was hard to choose, but finally settled on giant, chocolate covered pretzels in 4 different flavors: toffee, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate. I devoured the toffee so fast it didn't even get in a picture.

And the white chocolate went shortly thereafter. This one was definitely my fave.

I love the look of the two patterns together! I think I'll be busting out the plaid tights either tomorrow or the day after.
