Mingle

On bright & sunny days taking photos can be a challenge, so I took in two different locations to be safe until I could look at them on the computer. Being the indecisive little thing that I am, I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I'm awkwardly mashing them together for this post! 

This past weekend I went to a couple events for Atlantic Fashion Week, and this is what I wore to the first event - a 'fashionista mingle' at the Shops of Mills. There were live mannequins & complimentary wine, and it was fun to people watch to see what others were wearing! We followed it up with a feed of risotto balls, ravioli and a glass of wine at a restaurant down the street. Overall a lovely little evening!

  4. I love lacy, feminine dresses like this. It almost seems from a different time. And the blush blazer is something I've had my eye on for a few weeks now.

  5. This outfit is very romantic and girly. Absolutely love the colors with your blonde hair!
    I totally agree with the whole taking pictures on sunny days. They either come out great or you look completely washed out. I love both of your locations!

  13. That outfit is adorable without being too "frilly". I'd have spilled all over it. Actually I'd have managed to get it dirty before I even got a chance to spill.
