I might be wearing what is possibly the perfect striped dress. It would be great for a daytime wedding, a summer soiree, or even just a day at the park. The fabric is thick + structured and I love a good fit & flare silhouette. (They’re flattering on everyone!) I also really love the vertical stripes at the hem – along with the keyhole back, they add an element of fun to an otherwise classic piece.
I’m so happy that today is Friday and that the long weekend is here. I don’t have any plans, except to see friends and hang out in the city, but I’m kind of happy about that. I’m a little bit emotionally exhausted. On an exciting note, my best friend had her second baby yesterday morning (!!!) so I am hoping to get to meet the little guy this weekend. On the heavier side of things, I found out that a friend from high school is going through some really scary stuff with her health. We haven’t seen each other in fifteen years or so, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. About her + her family, about keeping up with old friends (something I’m not as good at as I used to be) and about how life can throw the craziest stuff at you, and how important it is to keep a positive attitude throughout everything you do. (Sorry if that’s a little cryptic, it’s all I can think about but it’s also not my story to tell.) Woof.
