LCD (Little Colored Dress)





 
   The most versatile dress most of us own is the LBD (little Black Dress) but do you own a favorite Little Colored Dress (LCD)?  You should!  It's for those events that you dare not wear black (or white) such as the amazing outdoor wedding I attended (and photographed) at The Greer Tree Farm in Griswold, CT.

   There is something about outdoor venues that compels me to wear bright, contrasting colors so I went through my collection of solid colored dresses and settled on this bold, magenta cocktail dress that I paired with a statement necklace.  Do you have a go-to LCD?



Ever After,

P.S. the drink options were bomb!  I stuck with the Porch Rockers which were a concoction of Bourbon, Cynder Liquor, Tea syrup, and Orange.

Motivational Monday: There's No Place Like Home





     "There's no place like home," and by that I mean your home state.  Have you ever vacationed in your home state?  It's a pretty awesome feeling because you get to experience everything at leisure rather than the usual business of responsibilities and work.
 
     The last week in August, we took a family trip to the Connecticut shoreline and although I have done day trips and camping in the area as a kid, it was an awesome trip to see how beautiful CT really is.  As a mom, the plus was that I could pack all Gavin's toys (unlike our last trip to Florida) and Gavin felt a little more at home with all his own toys and items.
 
     I am thinking since this trip was so low stress and an absolute blast, we can make it a family tradition on the summer.  Do you have any family trips that have turned into a family tradition?


Ever After,
Jamie

Sunset + Floral Dress











   Hi loves!  Last week I was on vacation and had an amazing time.  It reminded me how beautiful my home state is.  We drove less than an hour to the CT shoreline and stayed in a beautiful cottage right on the beach in Old, Lyme. The est part was it was easy to pack up Gavin since it was a short right and we even got to take Zoey on her first family vacation.  Zoey absolutely loved the beach and come to find out he loves long walks at sunset!
    Overall, my style on vacation was comfy and barefoot!   It's very rare that one can pull off a dress with no shoes but this loose and airy floral dress was just the perfect dress to transition from a sunset walk to a dinner date.  Don't you love when something that is so comfy is also so adorable?  I was a little hesitant about this dress before I got in the mail because it was under $20 but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and overall really impressed.
