Summer LBD

It has been such a busy week -- a busy month, actually -- but things should start to wind down a little as summer approaches. The weather has been hovering around 95 for weeks now, so it actually feels like summer already in Atlanta, but technically it's still spring.

This dress is one I've had in my closet a few months. I'm not sure why I haven't worn it yet, but today... out it came. It's a very sweet and feminine dress from one of my favorite designers: Trina Turk.

Outfit Details:

Dress: Trina Turk Aliena Mock Neck Lace Dress

The top part of the dress is definitely what makes this LBD stand out. I especially love the lace collar and yoke and the little flutter sleeves.

Shoes: Prada Patent Leather Cap-Toe Pumps in Nude and Black

Chapin bought me these shoes for Christmas. They are so cute, with tiny bows that add to the overall femininity of this look.


It's been so much fun to discover a new passion later in life: running! I don't think I started really taking running seriously until my late 30s. I wanted to run the Peachtree Road Race back in 2013 and started training... and it just took off from there.

I started out this week, Monday (Memorial Day), running in the Urban Tree Cidery 5K. I came in second in the Masters Group -- females 40+. I can't compete with those fast runners who do a mile in five or six minutes, but I'm not slow.

Here are a few photos from the run! Boy, was it hot!
