so i just tried to submit a question to you about a dress i’m wearing today that i desperately need help re: accessories, to ‘transition’ this to go to a rehearsal dinner tonight… but tumblr wouldn’t let me link to the dress in my question. so i posted it on my blog. any chance you could check it out and give me your awesome rockstar styling advice? THANK YOU!!
Hi! I just saw your post (the bat-signal thing worked!). I know, it’s frustrating not being able to include links in questions anymore!
I love your dress—perfect for summer! It’s a nice versatile style, too that you can easily transition from day-to-night by swapping accessories/shoes.
For day I’d wear it with flat sandals and bangles to dress it down, and maybe some hoop earrings. Because the detailing at the neckline is so pretty/intricate with the crochet I would avoid anything too substantial around the neck.
For evening I’d wear it with nude pee-toes, or a brightly colored wedge/heel and would wear a bright pair of earrings and your hair in a relaxed, low bun. Or, for the reasons I stated above regarding the neckline, a delicate necklace could look pretty, too and would not detract from the detailing like a long/statement necklace would.
and for the few people that asked… the dress is from spool72.com but unfortunately it’s sold out now - sorry!
last night: steak, burgers, hot dogs, chicken sausage and corn on the grill, plus a giant arugula, tomato, cucumber salad to kick off our weekend with friends in from out of town…
tonight: dinner at the burger joint followed by a walk on the highline (and hopefully coolhaus ice cream sandwiches, or something equally delicious)
tomorrow: lounging around the house in the morning, hopefully including a dip in the pool, then out to flushing to take in a ballgame (my first time at citi field!), fingers crossed for less than a two-inning wait for shake shack (would be my first time there, too!), capping the evening off with a visit to one of our old favorites - lola’s in hoboken
sunday: boys will play golf in the morning, girls will… not sure yet! manicure? pool? perhaps both? eventually it will be time to bring what will surely be a glorious (and fattening) weekend to a close - though not before one more delicious meal (this one’s still up in the air)…
harley and one of her classmates are the only ones up from nap and they appear to be having an animated conversation between them, pointing back and forth at each other and various things in the room. meanwhile all the other children are still sleeping which leads me to believe the teachers would probably like these two little devils to lie back down as well.
