Hi there! It's been so long! Thank you to everyone that have continued to check in despite my lack of posts. The truth is, I've been so busy with work and lesson planning that I haven't had much time for any extra curricular activities. This summer, I've decided to spend as much quality time with my hubby as I can, so our weekends have been less about taking blog pics and more about going out to brunches and picnics. 
I just wanted to pop in to let everyone know that I will be back but have just decided to take a little blog break. 

But not without a quick outfit post, of course! Last weekend, I went to the wedding of one of my dear friends and had a blast! It was a beautiful summer wedding and I chose to wear this gorgeous maxi dress I found online from Bloomingdale's. I must admit that I was very nervous about this purchase and even purchased a much more expensive dress just in case. I was nervous about the quality (the price was so awesome that I wondered if there was a catch) and whether it would be formal enough for a wedding. But it turned out to be perfect for a summer day wedding. The dress was a little big so I cinched it at the waist and added a few simple accessories. I received tons of compliments and I was super comfortable! The more expensive dress was not as flattering and very uncomfortable. It was promptly returned.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Speak to ya soon!!
