Thinking Younger

Happy Friday! It's been a long week, but a good one. I'm excited to announce that I became an aunt for the fifth time on March 1st; my sister, Gail, gave birth after about 12 hours in labor. Her son, Max, is a healthy 6 pounds and 12 ounces, with a sprinkle of blonde hair, his mother's nose, and two doting parents. I can't wait to meet him the next time I'm in Chicago.

Now, my only questions is: When will I have a niece? Everyone is having boys these days.

Outfit of the Day

I am totally in love with today's dress, which, in all honesty, is a little different for me. It's silk and a tad bohemian, but still ultra feminine. I love the unique puffed sleeves, perfect for covering up on this cool March day, while the low v-neck adds a hint of sexiness.

Dress: Diane von Furstenberg Lizbeth Silk Dress

You can still find the dress online at Neiman Marcus, where it's on sale for about 60% off.

If you're a fan of the TV show, Younger, you may have originally seen the dress when Liza wore it to the office in the Season Three episode, "What's Up, Dock?" If you're not watching this show, you should be! It's one of my favorite shows on TV right now. New episodes will premiere this summer, so now is the perfect time to catch up.

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik BB Bronze Metallic Pumps (no longer available, but check out this similar style)

I actually had multiple options when it came to footwear today, but I decided to go with these pointy-toe Manolos to help bring out some of the bronze undertones in the print. Did I choose wisely?

Today is not only special because it's Friday, but also because I reunited with someone I haven't seen in about 20 years. I babysat the three Henard kids - Michael, Robert and Blake - from 8th-12th grade, and I will always love them. (I often say that I had such a good experience with them that I don't need kids of my own!) This morning, I finally had the opportunity to catch up with Michael, the oldest Henard, and meet his beautiful family. I still can't believe he's all grown up.
