This weekend the BHE and I headed to Cape May, NJ for some serious victorian shenanigans. You will note that my photos turned out sepia. I think all the victorian charm just seeps into the air and makes it look that way. Anyway, here are some highlights:
nautical stripe shirt: Ann Taylor, $30
skirt with anchor on it: J. Crew clearance, $20
captain's hat: Cape May-Lewes Ferry gift shop, $6
completely mortifying the BHE by wearing this outfit: PRICELESS
There was a pretty terrifying storm on the ferry, so thank goodness I had a giant plastic cup of cheap chardonnay to calm my nerves...
The place where we stayed was just charming as hell and had no shortage of whimsy.We went on the ghost tour. Because we are total dorks. But not as dorky as the woman who wore the "Philadelphia Paranormal Research Center" t-shirt on the tour and who kept saying she was sorry she hadn't brought any of her "equipment". This isn't her; this is the woman who ran the tour and her 10 year-old granddaughter, who was wearing inappropriately short shorts. But I didn't take a picture of them, because that would be also inappropriate.
And finally, me in the captain's hat again, because I really think it's a good look. I took this in the parking lot of the grocery store near our house, right before the BHE insisted that I take it off because "we actually have to see these people again."
