Next to You

Home isn't a place; it's where your loved ones congregate. As Chapin and I prepare to sell our home, and I'm torn about wanting to leave the house and community we've built in West Midtown, I have to remind myself that my "home" is wherever Chapin, Tulip, Norman and Wally are located. They are my family, and as long as we're together, I can be happy.

I'm still not sleeping well, though! Stress is a terrible thing...

Outfit Details

Today's dress is one I've had for months but just haven't worn yet.

Dress: Shoshanna Emery Black and Gold Polka Dot Dress

I love the relaxed nature of the silhouette combined with the more formal look of black and gold polka dots. The balloon sleeves and v-neck just add to the overall chic but breezy design.

The dress is no longer available, but there is a similar dress by Ted Baker available at Nordstrom. Rebecca Taylor also has a black and gold leopard print dress in a similar silhouette.

I didn't even bother wearing a jacket today! The high will be 57 degrees, and I'm hoping this mild weather lasts until Sunday, when I'm running in the Hot Chocolate Atlanta 15K race (about 9.3 miles). I'm excited at anything that involves chocolate, even if it requires me to be up before the sun on a Sunday morning.

Shoes: Saint Laurent Paris 80 Studded Cap Toe Pumps

I've had these shoes for years, so they are no longer available, but the cap toe trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Here's a more updated version of this pump, available now at Neiman Marcus. (I hope they go on sale; I think they are fabulous.)
