Sparkle & Blue

It is an understatement to say I’ve slacked off on actively writing on the my blog. When I wake up at night and think of my “I need to do this soon…” list, my blog is always on the top 3.

However, the last few months brought me a change in daytime jobs, a vacation and (luckily) back-back weddings for a month straight!

Sometimes I know when I have too much on my plate and something has to give. Unfortunately, it’s the blog.

As much as I absolutely love writing in it, priorities are family, career & business, being a human and then the blog.

I hope the blog moves up in importance soon enough but for the time being, I had to take a break. However, now that I’m back, I’m going to kick my post off with one of my favorite outfits of the season!

I wore this sparkly, blue number to a friend’s wedding this month and I felt amazing in it. I don’t typically don on long sleeve, super short dresses but as I went on a very last minute, desperate search for a dress all over Vermont, this dress stood out from the rest.
The color is perfect for the Fall season, the sparkles just pop out in person but they don’t make me look like I walked out of Studio 54 either.

I parked the dress with black tights and black heels to dress it up appropriately for the occasion and parted my hair to the side to add a more romantic & soft touch to the dress.

I absolutely believe every dress/ outfit can take on a theme of its own based on how you style it. If I had done my hair completely straight and didn’t wear the black tights, this dress would have screamed “femme fatale”; the details really pulls it altogether.

Dress: Macy’s
