How I wish, how I wish you were here.

Details: Motown White Dress-Courtesy of Lulu's // Shoes- Target // Belt- UO // Glasses- Rayban // Earrings- Dinosaur Toes

Did you guys have a great fourth or what? I spent the day in Jersey City with one of my best friends, and I must say I haven't felt that relaxed in a LONG time. I got to sleep in which is unheard of lately, and hardly ever happens. I'll post more about the fourth probably tomorrow, and I got some great pictures of our day.

I definitely thought today was Saturday when I first woke up, I guess that's what we get for having the holiday smack right in the middle of the week. Better in the middle than in the beginning I guess, right? I woke up today and I was so excited to finally wear this dress from Lulu's. The detailing on this dress is absolutely breathtaking. It's so intricate and soft, the satin really adds a very elegant touch. Although I enjoy patterns I really just love bold colors in dresses, I think they make the outfit pop a little more, and you can accessorize more boldly too. I actually have quite a few white dresses that are making their way into my closet this summer, I don't know what it is about white, but it's so beautiful and simple.

Anyway, I am off to work I hope you all have a great rest of your week, and drink lots of coffee today because I bet you're as sleepy as I am!

  10. You seriously have the prettiest face and hair! And I love this dress! Okay, I'll stop gushing now... I'm super tired, as well, from the weird hump day holiday. Fortunately I only had to work a half day this morning, so now it's time for a nap!

  15. Love the look, really cute.
    You have such a cute face and loove your hair! ♥
    As I was looking at your pics, my mom passed me by and saw your dress and she looves the sleeves. :)
    I looove the color white, it's just a nice color, for me there's something so rich about white clothes and they're so crisp & fresh looking ♥
