Here To There
This year was supposed to be slower. I'm not complaining, but I am maybe just the tiniest bit fatigued. (Our real estate agent was the first to notice earlier this month, truth be told.) As far as September Dresses go, I've been batting a steady 3 posts/wk., which isn't bad (but far from daily). I am A-OK with this.
This post is fun because it combines two days with the same dress about three months apart.
No, that's not the one! This is a very lightweight robe I picked up on a whim for a trip. I was in LA for Beautycon in July. I love LA. (My wife does not, and she's from there.) It took moving to Boston to appreciate it, but hey, better late than never!
I was all dolled up in the LA version; the SF version further down is so much more relaxed despite being the same dress.
The dress is a really pretty, classic silhouette with tons of heavy lace from Free People. I love the midi length, the piles of lace and plunging neckline. It comes in cream, too, and I almost wish I had that one as well! Such an easy thing to throw on, so effortlessly romantic. Let's see it, shall we?
There have been SO many clear, pristinely blue days with perfect Golden Gate Bridge views lately. (Cue the effusive praise for San Francisco summers, which begin in earnest in mid-September, when the rest of the country is hyperventilating over the arrival of fall.)
Don't tell anyone, but I've noticed quite a lot of trees turning colors lately, and came across this charming article, for those of you who deny the existence of seasons on this coast. I have to keep reminding myself that I no longer have to hoard sunshine in anticipation of six months of dreadful misery, but it isn't really helping. My body just keeps wanting to panic and gird itself against impending brutal cold! (Someone please tell me this stops after the first winter, it's a bit much.)
Both times I wore Sam Edelman shoes — a pair of faux snakeskin pumps and the super fun leopard AND zebra-print calf-hair mini-wedges in this Golden Gate version.
Alright, so it isn't so evident here, but you've gotta take my word for it!
