I hope everyone had a great weekend! I have been recovering a bit this week from the kids’ break and the tennis tournament last week. Apparently after taking ten days off to do nothing, my body doesn’t feel like working out anymore (insert emoticon in pain here) and prefers sleeping late and enjoying lattés and vino. I have been persevering as much as I can – my only consolation is that I had a really nice tan!
I am a huge skirt fan and the midi length is spot on for heels and flats and so effortlessly elegant. I came across this skirt in several shades of blue and I had to have it! It is perfect to wear all summer and at the beach (wink-wink). The pattern is quite bold, so I kept the accessories to a minimum. I love these neutral basic shoes – I originally saw the Stuart Weitzman Nudist pair and fell in love with them BUT they were toe crunchers (I couldn’t even walk around the store…) I then came across this luxe for less pair and bought them in three colors (yup three – neutral, black and white). The front strap is wide and the bottom of the sole is cushioned so I can actually walk in them for long periods of time.
I hope you had a great week! I have been a bit swamped with the house in Florida – trying to pull everything together from over 600 miles away is a challenge but still very exciting.
Today, I want to share a date night outfit. Before I go any further I need to talk about my current series obsession. I love uncovering a series when it is all complete because then you can go on a non-stop marathon watching binge. Sons of Anarchy – I mean how did I miss this series? I am officially obsessed and am thinking I need to join a motorcycle gang and become someone’s old lady. 🙂
The sweater dress is a trend this fall and in many ways ideal because it is the height of comfort. And I love the idea of one but could not find one which was flattering and trendy at the same time. This dress is perfect and it can easily go from day to night with a change of accessories. It is made of a soft ribbed knit and the color blocking is spot on perfect. With motorcycles on my mind, I threw in some hard accessories like my crocodile cuff and spiked clutch to edge it up.
I hope everyone has had a fabulous week! I have been busier than usual these days because of all the time I took off, and hence not as active on my social media – but I am trying to catch up! I went away to San Antonio for Labor Day weekend and I wanted to share the photos before it got too cold here in Houston (wishful thinking on my part).
