Don't You Remember

Today's dress is one that has been collecting dust in my closet for over a year now. I have never worn it, mainly because I felt like the straps needed to be taken up a bit. Since I can't seem to find time to take a batch of clothes to my alterations lady in Buckhead, I decided to try the dress on this morning just to see if it was wearable... and I decided it would do. Today will be fairly low-key at the office anyway, since I plan to be at my desk most of the day just writing, writing, writing document after document.

This sleeveless necklace two-fer dress, from the brand "Single Dress," is both professional and chic, and I love the two colors (purple and gray) together. I paired it with my gray L.A.M.B. suede Glam Pumps. Since the temperature has been chilly here in Atlanta for the past few days, I have the heater in my office going, and am wearing a sweater to keep my arms and shoulders warm. It was only about 35 degrees out this morning when I walked George.

It's always difficult to come back to work after spending such a cocooned weekend with my husband and pug. Saturday was a fairly relaxed day. I got a facial at a nearby salon, and Chapin picked up takeout for lunch from our favorite Mexican place, Pure Taqueria. This restaurant has the best salsa! Later that evening, we went to a movie. Chapin and I both love sci-fi, and I had been wanting to see The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt since I saw the trailer a few months back. It was worth the wait! Afterward we had frozen yogurt at Menchie's. I had cake batter yogurt with Kit Kat pieces, while Chapin got a chocolate/ vanilla swirl with brownie bites. Yum!

Sunday I didn't leave the loft, mainly because I had to work pretty much all afternoon. Chapin did find time to teach me to make lasagna, though, and it turned out great.
