Like Butter

Happy First Day of Summer! I celebrated the occasion by wearing this festive yellow dress from Shoshanna. It's adorned with silver stars and flows so easily on such a hot day!

Outfit Details

Dress: Shoshanna Robin Star Lurex Dress

You can button up the neck and just have a keyhole opening show, or you can leave the neckline open like I did. It's so hot today, I didn't have a choice!

Shoes: Sophia Webster Natalia Silver Platform Sandals

These platform sandals helped give me the height I needed to walk in the dress without tripping -- and match perfectly with the overall look.

Heat Wave

It is so hot in Atlanta! I am very thankful for air conditioning this week. That's one luxury I don't think I could live without. 

Today's dress is a cute confection from Alice + Olivia. I love the puffed up sleeves and floral print. I know the dress is a bit short, but I work hard to keep myself in shape, so I should get to show off my legs once in awhile. ;) I actually did my 2,100th Peloton bike ride this morning, and even received a shout out from Cody, one of my favorite instructors. I love that bike so much!

Check Mate

Today I'm wearing a gift from my little sister, Laura. I thought it was appropriate since it's her hubby's birthday today! 

I know it's not technically summer, but it is so hot and humid in Atlanta already, and if anything says summer, it's this outfit. The gingham print is a summer staple, and my shoes are adorned with summery fruits like coconuts and watermelon. If you want whimsical, cute shoes, you need a pair of shoes by Sophia Webster!

Dress: BCBGeneration Pink Gingham Smocked Midi Dress

Night Out

Chapin and I have both been so excited to try this new restaurant in Atlanta: Lyla Lila. We ate there Friday night with our good friends, Rahul and Vinnie, and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing!

It's also fun to get dressed up to go out. Chapin wore a new shirt from Hugo Boss and I wore a Milly dress that has been gathering dust in my closet for a few years now. I just love all the colors and the overall fit, so I was waiting for a special time to wear it. 

What I Wore:

Dress: Milly Cube Print Handkerchief Dress

The dress is no longer available -- I think I bought it back in 2019 -- but here is a similar flowy style you can buy now on the Milly website.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Rosalind Jeweled Sandals in Turquoise

I've had these shoes a few years, so they are no longer available, but check out this pearl version of the Rosalind sandal.

What I Ate:

As for dinner, here is what I decided on. Everything was so good, we've already made another reservation to dine there in July.

For the first course, Rahul and I split two seafood appetizers:

  • Cold Smoked Scallops with green harissa, Thai basil aioli, roe and pane carasau  
  • Tuna Crudo with aji amarillo, pickled strawberries, basil and popped sorghum      

For the second course, we all had appetizer portions of a pasta. I chose Cacio e Pepe with gluten-free pasta made fresh at the restaurant.

My main course was seafood, of course! I chose the Snapper, which was wrapped in squash and a basil-pistachio pesto and served with gold potatoes and lemon-roe butter. It was delicious. The fish was moist and so flavorful.

If you're in Atlanta and looking for a great meal, I highly recommend Lyla Lila.

Sage Me

Sometimes just donning a new outfit can make you feel great and boost your confidence for the day ahead. That's definitely what I was thinking when I slipped on today's flirty fit and flare dress from Alice + Olivia. The shoes and jewelry added a "butterfly effect" that made the whole look feminine and fun. 

Dress: Alice + Olivia Barrett Smock Bodice Dress in Sage Green

Shoes: Sophia Webster Rio Satin Pumps in a Pastel Butterfly Print

Butterfly Earrings and Necklace: Kendra Scott

Lucky Year?

So, I just had a birthday... I'm now 44! Someone said 44 is a lucky year, and Barak Obama was the 44th president, so maybe this year will be a special one for me. We shall see!

Chapin gave me a beautiful necklace for my birthday, so I wore it today with this lemon print Aqua dress. Summer is on the way!

Dress: Aqua Lemon Print Mini Dress
