May Dresses and Tulip, Too

Here are a few dresses I wore throughout the month of May. Tulip and I both celebrate a birthday this month, so I'm including a few shots of her in her party dress as well. She just turned six! I, on the other hand, just celebrated turning 46. How am I that old?!

Occasion: My Birthday Party

Dress: AMUR Malti Floral Ruffled One-Shoulder Dress

Sandals: Loeffler Randall

Occasion: Mother's Day Brunch

How could I resist wearing a dress with a tulip floral pattern on Mother's Day? I'm a dog momma, after all. Chapin and I took my mom and dad out to UP on the Roof in Alpharetta -- such a fun meal.

Star Wars Day and Dinner Out

Dinner out on April 30th with my new running friend, Jacque, called for a casual yet fun dress. Enter LoveShackFancy! The dresses in style these days are so short, though. I hope I'm not getting too old to wear them. I'll be 46 in just a few days. Eeek!

DressLoveShackFancy Rena Ruffled Short Mini Dress

Sandals: Sophia Webster Vanessa Floral Sandals 

These particular sandals are no longer available, but you can find the Vanessa style in a variety of butterfly versions.

Chapin and I also went out for Star Wars trivia on May 4th -- May the Fourth Be With You! I ordered this droid dress from for the occasion -- although it didn't bring us much luck. We were in second place going into the final question and then completely blew it! Oh well!

It's super weird to see me in a dress and flats, but you can't go to a pizza place like MTH Pizza in heels!

Office Appearances

This week, I met up with several LMi colleagues at a shared office space in Atlanta. It was fun to dress in work clothes and leave the house for a few days of brainstorming, collaboration and strategy.

I chose these two outfits for my out-of-the-house adventures:

Day 1: 

DressDVF Bettina Mesh Dress

Diane von Furstenburg always delivers when it comes to chic work dresses, and the Bettina dress is no exception. The slit, a popular style element these days, shows off the leg and the neckline is open and flattering. Longer sleeves cover the arms and the puffed mesh fabric at the shoulders draws the eye in toward the tapered waist.

Shoes: Valentino One Stud Pumps

The version with the gold stud is no longer available online, but here's a crystal version you can buy now. Valentino, especially pink Valentino, is always a good investment. (Next -- the matching bag!)

Day 2: 

Dress: Black Halo Legend Sheath Dress in Flamingo Pink

Another day, another slit! The Legend dress is no longer available, but the Bridget style from Black Halo is extremely similar, with cute buttons for an added design element. 

Shoes: Sophia Webster Amora Peachy Slingbacks

My favorite part of this outfit is probably the peachy shoes, which are perfect for any Georgia day. The matching purse is also on my Wish List!

Easter Fun

Easter this year was a low key affair, with Chapin, Tulip and I visiting my parents in Alpharetta for an early dinner. The weather was picture perfect, meaning I could break out a summery dress for the occasion!

Since we had Tulip with us, I needed a dress that could get a little hairy, and for some reason eyelet doesn't attract pug hair like other fabrics. Enter this fun and flirty LIKELY dress. The style is perfect for showing off toned arms, and the grapefruit color was a great choice for the Easter holiday.

Dress: LIKELY Avalia Sleeveless Eyelet Midi Dress

Shoes: Sophia Webster Flo Flamingo Sandals

Dinners With Friends

Wow, it's hard to believe this post will be my first in 2024! Now that I'm working from home, I am usually wearing jeans or shorts as opposed to my beloved dresses. But this week, I had two opportunities to see friends, which of course called for a #dressup moment.

March 30, 2024: Tre Vele with Lindsay

Dress: Rebecca Vallance Marie Embellished Crepe Dress

The dress is super cute and comfortable -- it even has pockets -- and the color is a gorgeous pink. Since it's still early Spring, and since we were planning to eat outside at the restaurant, the heavier crepe material was perfect for the occasion. I was pleasantly surprised that I could wear my strapless bra without it showing, too!

Find the dress at Saks, My Theresa and the Rebecca Vallance website. It also comes in black.

Shoes: Sophia Webster Vanessa Embellished Butterfly Slingback Sandals

The sandals are still available at Saks and FarFetch. The Sophia Webster website also has this style but in different color options.

April 2, 2024: Rumi's Kitchen with Adrianne and Katie

Dress: Shoshanna Majorelle Dress in a Bright Blue/Green Print

EarringsBONBONWHIMS Micropave Pop Drop Earrings

Shoes: Sophia Webster Vanessa Butterfly Strappy Stiletto Sandals

This exact shoe is sold out, but you can find the same style in a variety of different color combinations. Out of all my shoes, I think I've received the highest number of compliments on these sandals, and I love how the greens go together!

Christmas Concert Dress

Saturday night I attended the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra Christmas Pops concert with my Mom and Dad. It's been a tradition in my family to attend the event for the last few years (minus 2020 and 2021). Although we originally started going to see my Dad sing in the choir, now it's an annual event to help us get into the holiday spirit. (My dad retired from the choir and singing several years ago.)

I chose this AMUR dress for its pink and green (holiday-esque) color scheme and gorgeous silhouette. I'm just so in love with it, and the Nalebe mules are a perfect match to the green in the floral pattern.

Outfit Details:

Dress: AMUR Grady Pleated Dress

Shoes: Nalebe Aurum Satin Mules in Mint Green

I wanted to wear something a little different than the traditional red or green!
