Fun fact about me. I dress up for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! I love playing dress up, changing my look, and accessorizing every chance I get. Grant sounds like a broken record everyday, asking the same questions. “Babe, do you really need ten pounds of jewelry today? Why are you wearing a dress? Can’t you just wear sneakers? You know we’re just going to the grocery store right?” Over, and over I listen to the same nagging comments. My response is always the same. “Yes. I get it. This is me, and you married me this way. I promise I will never ever change.” I need makeup for the grocery store, the laundry room, and the gym (although it drips down my face). My reason being, I feel ready to attack my day, when I know I’ve put myself together. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember.
Several months ago, I stumbled upon a lovely, little floral dress (currently on sale). I stared at the dress on the rack, every time I walked into the store. I looked that dress up and down, and I have a feeling that little beauty sized me up too. I knew it was fairly similar to another dress I have in my closet, so I continued to dodge the dress. I didn’t need it, but that dress and I continued our staring matches for quite some time, until I finally gave in and tried it on. Fitted, and floral, with a peplum as a design detail, the dress fit perfectly. Of course I scooped it up. I have more floral dresses than I can count, and now I have just one more (or two). I accessorized with a pale pink, cross body bag (similar here), gold bangles (similar here), chandelier earrings (similar here), and gold sandals. I completed my look with white rimmed aviators (similar here).
I wore this new little number on a Friday evening, strolling through one of my favorite spots in the city, the West Village. I love how quaint and charming it is. With cafes and trendy restaurants lining the streets, that particular day was a true celebration. The supreme court ruled that same sex marriage is now legal in all fifty states. People lined the streets of the West Village with colorful flags. Restaurants were packed with people eating and drinking in celebration of the occasion. I loved people watching that day. New York was bustling with excitement and I loved being a part of it.
For the remainder of the weekend we relaxed, and celebrated a friend’s birthday, dined at Tavern on the Green (our fave!), and spent the holiday with our close friends. Hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July celebration, Beauties! xo
