Hung Up

Betsey Johnson was probably the first true designer I really fell in love with. I bought my first Betsey Johnson dress for our engagement photos back in 2003, and I've been hooked on fashion ever since.

Today I'm in, clearly, Betsey Johnson. I love the puff sleeves and comfortable style of this floral bouquet dress, which comes in a fabulous teal color. The short sleeves and floral design make it a good pick for today, because we're supposed to have a beautiful Friday with temperatures in the 70s!

The weather is supposed to last all weekend, so we -- along with most of Atlanta -- will probably spend as much time as possible outside. We are already planning to take George back to Piedmont Park's small dog park so he can run around with other dogs his size. We took him last weekend and he had so much fun... though he tired out pretty quickly.

Here is Taylor Swift wearing a similar version of the dress in purple.

I could not find the exact dress online, but here are a few similar styles from the Betsey Johnson brand:

- Betsey Johnson Painted Rose Dress

- Betsey Johnson Misty Rose Burnout Cup of Coffee Dress -- comes in a beautiful purple

I paired the dress with my suede gray L.A.M.B.Glam pumps. The ruffle around the edge of the dress is also gray, so it matches just perfectly.
