This outfit is full of sale finds! The tee was $20 from The Outnet's clearance sale a couple years ago and it retailed for $135...sheesh! The rainforest print Carven skirt is from the Net-a-Porter sale quite a few years ago and the Lanvin studded suede sandals are also from the Net-a-Porter sale! I've made my single purchase for this year's sale but you won't see what it is for a few months. *wink wink*

I wore this to hang out with Lydia for a bit on Saturday afternoon. We headed to lunch at Joey C's Boathouse and then came to this fun "sea wall" for our outfit photos. This is the first time in a while  that we have taken photos together. The past few times we've gotten together we haven't been in the mood to take out the tripod for double shots. Luckily this time we had my lovely photographer/fiance to do all the work.

Tee: Vince (The Outnet), Skirt: Carven (Net-a-Porter Sale), Studded Suede Sandals: Lanvin (Net-a-Porter Sale), Bag c/o Orox Leather 'Merces Saddle,' Sunglasses: Gucci

Here's what I wore for our second Easter celebration. This dress is definitely in my top 3 of all my dresses. I just love the whimsical print and the fitted top. I wore it SOOO many times the first year I bought it and have slowed down it's wears the past few years. But I think this Spring/Summer I'm going to bring it out some more. It has made some memorable trips with me though. It came to the Press Preview of Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando, on a trip to Paris a couple years ago and to Italy last May. Who knows where it will go next!

You also get a lot of detail shots today because my photographer was feeling ambitious and it was actually warm enough to spend more than 5 minutes outside. Special appearance by my sister's dog, Teddy! Such a cutie! (He's a Shiba Inu for those curious folk)

Last Saturday Lydia and I attended a brunch in Wethersfield for Connecticut bloggers. It was held at Heirloom Market and organized by the lovely Nonee, who runs CT Blogger Babes. There were a little over 25 lovely ladies in attendance for a delicious meal followed by some discussions about how to best reach your blogging potential. I actually learned quite a few tips!

We left the event with goodie bags containing fun little bits and bobs like chapstick, lip gloss and an adorable burned wood spoon. I also won a $75 gift card to Pearls and Plaid in Old Saybrook. Looks like I'll be planning a weekend visit!

I decided to wear my Carven Paris map print dress because I haven't worn it that much this Summer (I did bring it to Italy, though!) It will forever be one of my favorite dresses. I'm so glad I splurged on it a couple years ago, it's definitely been worth it. I also broke out my rose gold watch for a bit more glam, but the battery died so it was just for looks.
