Weekend Recap: Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21, 2009

Top: Express

Jeans: Express (Mia Ultra Skinny)

Shoes: Shi

Earrings: gifted

Bracelet: New York & Company

Good Lord, somebody pass me the blotting paper! I am looking a little shiny in this picture. Ugh. Perhaps it is because Nate insists on keeping the thermostat at 75 despite the fact that it is 90 degrees outside?

Anyway, onto the outfit! I made a quick trip to the farmer's market in the early morning and then we didn't leave the house again until 7pm. It was so nice to just hang around the house for a change!

We went to dinner at a local sports bar and although it was hot and muggy outside, I knew it would be chilly in the restaurant so I went for jeans. I've had this top for years (I also have it in solid black) and love the fact that I can wear it like this for a date or put a camisole underneath and wear it to work. Gotta love tops that can pull double duty!

Dress: Ann Taylor Loft

Shoes: Baker's Shoes

Necklace: Simply Irresistible (local store)

I got this necklace at my favorite little local jewelry store the other day and couldn't wait to wear it. I wear a lot of black so I know it will get a lot of use and at 75% retail (I paid $2.50!) I couldn't pass it up.

The dress is a little less basic in person than it looks here. It has slanted pockets on the hips and little darts under the chest area. I'll be sure to take detail pictures next time I wear it. The necklace definitely added just the right touch to a slightly-more-than-basic little black dress.

These heels are one of my favorite pairs of shoes in my entire closet (and that's a lot of shoes!). I always get compliments when I wear them and today was no exception. The greeter at church commented on them as we walked in today. Nothing like a compliment to start the day off right! You'll see a lot of these babies this summer.
