Happy Monday – and long weekend!? I actually didn’t even realize that today was a holiday… oops! I didn’t have President’s Day off at my last day job – do you have it off?
My weekend was really nice. I had a work dinner with Modcloth on Friday night and on Saturday spent the day at Dumbo House with two of my best friends. Brunch there is always a longer affair – the buffet is incredible (as is the new bellini bar they put in… endless options!) Yesterday I spent the morning reading and working and then took a 2 hour meditation workshop with Sky Ting! It was a good weekend: the perfect mix of fun, relaxation, and work. Also a HUGE thanks to everyone who has bought tickets to our live podcast on April 1st. We are really excited and spending this week figuring out our lineup, guests, etc. Your support has been amazing and Becca and I can.not.wait. It’s going to be an amazing night and if you haven’t gotten your ticket yet you can use code BOP to get $11 tickets!
L.K. Bennett sent me this dress and I absolutely love it. The brand is taking a younger, fresher approach and I am here for it. So many bright colors, fun prints, etc. It was hard to pick a favorite but I went with this one as the print is so fab and I love the detailing at the neck and shoulder. Other favorites from the new collection include this polka dot number (in emerald!) and this sail print dress (love the vivid red). They’re having a sale (it ends tonight) where everything is 20% off (no code necessary) so now would be a good time to shop. I also really love these nude pumps and (gahhhh, my essence!) this green coat.
Outfit Details: Topshop Coat // L. K. Bennett Dress (gifted) // Express Tights (nothing better!)// Marion Parke Boots (favs; they are tall but I can walk all day in them – also here and here) // BaubleBar Green Lucite Hoops // Chanel Bag // Polaroid Sunglasses (sold out but these are $40 and so similar)
And while I have you, my friends at Sarah Flint are having a big shoe sale. I have a few pairs of her shoes and love that they are stylish AND comfortable. So important on days where I have a lot of meetings and events and am on my feet all day. (These slingbacks are sadly not a part of the sale but they are my absolute fav.)
This is a big deal as they only do sales 2x a year. Take 30% off key styles. These pumps are the same combo as my favorite slingbacks and I loooove these booties in both black and tan.
Couldn’t love these BaubleBar earrings more. I bought the clear ones as well; but I love how interesting and unexpected the green is.

the print of that dress is so pretty, I wished they made a shorter dress with, I personally cannot pull this style but it looks fabulous on you.
Thanks so much Rach!
We don’t get the day off but I did enjoy the light traffic on my morning commute. Love the dress in winter look!! I’m an opaque tights girl as well 🙂 Commando is new to me for tights and a recent fave but I will have to check out Express when a new pair is in order!
You must! They’re cheap (well, compared to Commando!) too!!!
What a fun printed dress! Loving this whole look.

Thank you so much Jessica!
Funny enough, I didn’t realize it was a long weekend and neither did my Fiance until last night and he realized he was off! So I am slightly jealous of him today, but he is at home with our two dogs as we adopted a new one over the weekend and there is quite the adjustment phase going on!
I LOVE that floral print! I would have have guessed that brand because like you said, it used to skew older so I was always afraid of looking matronly!
The Adored Life
Yeah they’ve really switched things up!!!
And that is hilarious. Congrats on the new dog, that is so fun!
Love this dress! I was first introduced to L.K. Bennett via Kate Middleton bc #royallyobsessed of course and I bought some of those famous (infamous?) nude pumps she wore all the time shortly after being a Duchess. I agree that they are freshening up their look a bit though. I actually rented an L.K. Bennett dress from Rent the Runway for an event. The shoulders were very similar to this dress, and I loved the little puff detail!
And so sad I can’t just take off for NYC for your live show in April, but I’m holding out for when you guys go on that big tour and hit up somewhere close by like Atlanta or Nashville ; )
Yes same here! I thought it was all just a little bit too stuffy for me so am loving all of these bright colors!!!!
Sad to miss you at the live show – fingers crossed that we’ll do more!
Your weekend sounds lovely Grace. And yes, I do have today off. Yay! But also helps that I’m own boss!! 😉 And… this dress – it’s absolutely yummy!! xo

That definitely helps!!!
This dress is so cute! I’ve been trying to add more colors to my wardrobe to contrast this dull, dreary winter we’re having.
It’s amazing how well a bright dress can help to combat the winter blues!
I’m so in love with this dress, Grace! My closet is sorely lacking in pretty floral prints; I need to remedy that this spring.
Thanks Keira! You can never have enough florals, IMO! 😉
What a fun dress to wear on these dreary Winter days!
Right!? Love a bright colorful dress this time of year!
That’s a lovely dress! I love the pattern and the colours although I’m not a big fan of the length but it looks amazing on you.
Thank you so much Marta!!!
Lovely dress! And sounds like you had a nice weekend. So glad to hear.
Do you (or anyone else, for that matter) know if the perfect pump goes on sale ever at Sarah Flint? I’ve been eyeing it for a while but cannot make up my mind on the 100 or the 85. Wish there was something in the middle!
I don’t think it does. I will email you if I find out otherwise. They don’t do sales a lot which bums me out but I also respect.
So excited for those that will be at the live podcast! I wish I could join the fun but I live on the West Coast. Would there be an opportunity to join live via Google Hangout, YouTube or another Webcast platform? Love you both & Cheers!!!
I don’t think so but if we are able to add one, I will absolutely let you know!!!
