With the countdown well underway, it’s about that time when the boyfriend and I have started planning out our meals. Not only do we want to squeeze in as many yummy meals as possible, but restaurants are also starting to close down as the tourist season has slowed significantly. Once we decided on one of the fancier restaurants in town, I knew I wanted to wear this dress…and once I put it on, I wondered why I hadn’t been wearing it more. I love it.
I’ve worn this dress a few times before but never with the sash tied in front, and I think I might like it better this way. Taking the bow away almost puts the emphasis on the back of the dress, highlighting the amazing print and cut. Sticking to my minimal hot weather style, I added just a pink bangle and teal wedges for a little color. While the boyfriend and I walked to dinner after snapping these pictures, we ran into a few friends (as is inevitable while living in a town this small). I can’t lie; when we were greeted with whistles and raised beers, I felt pretty fancy.
(I’m looking for guest posts for the first or second week of June while I move to San Francisco, find an apartment and a job, adjust to temperatures that are much colder than I’ve felt in a while…you get it.
