Day Dress or Wedding Dress?

When you wear a white or ivory dress, you run the risk of feeling as if you're headed for the chapel instead of to the office, brunch, dinner or out on the town. Fortunately, I'm willing to take the risk in a dress as beautiful as this one from Shoshanna.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Shoshanna Giana Lace Applique Keyhole Ruffle Dress

The dress is super comfortable, and I got compliments on it all day long! I love the high neckline and ruffles, and since it's made entirely from lace, it is so feminine yet still so sexy.

Shoes: Kate Spade New York Fresia Patent Platform Sandals (no longer available)

I haven't worn these Kate Spade sandals in quite a while, but I love how the ivory in the sandals goes perfectly with the ivory of the dress. You could also do a gold or nude colored sandal here as well.

Weekend Update

Chapin and I needed a nice relaxing weekend together, and that's exactly what we had. We barely left the house, but did venture out to dinner on Saturday night to one of our favorite seafood restaurants: Goin' Coastal. Afterward, we stopped for some sweet treats at Paolo's Gelato. We first went to this little gelato place in the Highlands during our first year of dating back in 2000. I can't believe that was 18 years ago! We will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary later this year.

We don't go to the Highlands very often since we moved to West Midtown -- we used to take George there for doggie gelato all the time -- so now, when we're there, I just feel awash in memories. I wish time didn't have to move so fast.

Speaking of time, we bought the new Avengers movie over the weekend (Avengers: Infinity War), and I'm now obsessed with trying to figure out the plot of the sequel, due out in May 2019. I know time travel will factor into the story somehow... It will be torture waiting eight more months to see how my Guardians (and other favorite heroes) come back from the dead.

Outfit Details - Saturday Night:

Dress: Nicole Miller New York Red Lace Fit and Flare Dress

The dress retails for $228, but I bought it for just $45 at Belk (online).

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Hesper Strappy Sandals
