My husband is probably the smartest person I've ever met. He's also one of the most forgetful! Still, I was surprised this morning to get the call that he had left his wallet at home, and I had to come bring it to him... at the airport. Sheesh! What a way to start the week.
Today's dress is one I lusted after for a long time. I didn't think it would ever be mine, and then it popped up on RueLaLa.com in my size. Hooray!
Remember: If you ever want an invite to Rue La La, all you have to do is ask. I recently invited my co-worker, Heidi, to check out the site, and it's where she ended up buying a dress to wear to her upcoming bachelorette party. Three cheers for discount shopping!
Dress: Alice + Olivia Ellis Floral Zip-Front Dress
This dress is super cute and comfortable, and perfect for a spring or summer day -- especially one as overcast as today. (It seemed to rain all night!) I love that the front of the dress has a zipper, as opposed to buttons, which makes it much easier for larger chested women to wear it. The addition of yellow also brightens up what could have been just a simple black and white palette.
The cherry on top is finding a dress that goes so well with these black, white and yellow floral pumps! They are a perfect match.
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti Daisy Pumps (no longer available)
I have to mention the fun evening I had this past Friday night, when Chapin and I joined some friends for dinner out at one of our favorite restaurants, Cooks & Soldiers, followed by Sips Under the Sea at the Georgia Aquarium.
We were supposed to wear white or neon colors, but never did find out why. Oh well.
I enjoyed wearing this Parker Black white sequin dress for the occasion. I got so many compliments on it.
My sister, Laura, added that it was the perfect dress to wear to the aquarium, since the sequins look like a mermaid's tail or fish scales. I never thought about it like that, but she's totally right!
If you're an adult and want to enjoy the aquarium, these nighttime events are the best time to do it. There aren't as many people there, so you can really walk around and take everything in. And alcohol helps the experience, too!
