Happy Monday. You might have seen on instagram that I was out in Essex, Connecticut this for the weekend. One of my closest friends from BaubleBar got married there, so my girlfriends and I took the train out and stayed Friday + Saturday. I fell completely in love with the town. It’s one of the most picturesque, traditional New England towns I’ve ever visited… and the inn that we stayed at (The Griswold) is actually the oldest inn in the country. The ceremony + reception were held at Harkness Park and it may have been one of the prettiest places for a wedding. The gardens felt like Paris.
Today I’m playing dress up, which feels fun as I’ve been pretty casual lately. This Marchesa Notte dress is completely covered in sequins. I love the way that it catches the light but isn’t too flashy. I can’t wait until I have an excuse to wear it out… it’s one of those pieces that just makes you feel fabulous.
PS – Don’t forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve done a few posts (general picks, fall fashion, + beauty) with my favorite items and yesterday I finally placed my order. I was boring and kept my order pretty simple… I got these slim cut boyfriend jeans, the Neulash set, two of these tunics and a whole bunch of underwear.
