With wedding season in full swing (we will have been to 5 in two months) dresses seem to be the only thing I am getting lately. I am all about re-wearing clothes but who wants to be caught in the exact same outfit by the same people, especially at a wedding? Not me. I am always on the hunt for classic dresses that can be worn through the wedding seasons but also on special occasions like birthdays, dinners and cocktail parties. You know, those versatile dresses.
This pink lace dress has really become one of my ‘go-to’ dresses. I have been able to wear it to a party (or two) and also plan to wear it to an up and coming wedding. I love the simple silhouette and how the dress defines the waist but you are still able to have your cake and eat it too (breathing room is a must for me). When wearing such a busy dress (lace detail) I like to keep my shoes really simple & usually opt for one of my nude pairs. The nude shoes don’t cut off my legs and keeps them looking long (illusions, trust me).
Happy Friday! T.G.I.F. right? If you follow me on Instagram you know that yesterday I landed in Los Angeles to celebrate one of my best friends birthdays! We spent yesterday lounging by the pool and then grabbed a late dinner at Mr. Chow. Today we are having lunch at one of my favorite spots in Santa Monica and then later tonight we are having another late dinner with a big group of girls (fun, fun!). Tomorrow morning the husband flies in because his birthday is Tuesday and we are going to stay through the week.
We plan on lounging by the pool, shopping, catching up with friends and doing a little exploring. I love being in L.A. because not only is the weather perfect but it is just one of those cities where you want to be outdoors and relax. If you have any favorite spots, feel free to leave a comment so we can (hopefully) check them out. Have a great weekend! xx
If there is one thing my puppies, Banks & Harry, love it is being outside. Since the weather in Dallas has been really nice, we have been spending a little extra time outdoors, specifically by the pool, with our puppies. They love to run around and consider jumping in every single time (even though they never have). I will say Harry (the white puppy) is much more open to being in the water than Banks.
This particular night we were headed to a casual dinner after our evening walk with the puppies, so I threw on this little blue nautical dress (you can see the steering wheels if you look close) and of course some casual flip flops before we left. Sometimes it’s nice to just throw on something easy (like this dress) and head out the door. Plus the dress is so lightweight it made our walk with the puppies that much more pleasant!
