Throwing it back to Easter because I finally reminded Chrisitan to edit the photos we took. To be fair, we forgot to download them to a computer before we left for Missouri the week after Easter so we didn't have access to them for a full month. Whoops! But, better late than never!

Decided to wear an oldie but goodie this year, my Paris map print Carven dress from 2014. Also broke out one of my favorite pairs of shoes, the Lanvin suede city sandals I got in the Net-a-Porter sale in 2017. Coincidentally, the Net-a-Porter End of Season sale just started so you can get up to 80% off select pieces! The promo images say up to 50%, but if you sort by percentage some things are already 80%.

Dress: Carven Paris Map Print dress (YOOX)

Sandals: Lanvin studded suede 'City' sandal (Net-a-Porter End of Season sale)

Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry 'Gemma' (giveaway win)

Bag: Purple Prada Cahier in Viola (Rebag via Vestiaire Collective


 I wore this a few weeks ago to attend a blogger dinner at Eli's Tavern in Milford. I didn't want to wear jeans so I decided to wear my fun Proenza Schouler printed pants! I love these but I always style them the same way, black on top and some sort of heel. I think next time I'll pair them with my knitted tank sweater and some flats for a more dressed down look! And, although this outfit has lots of designer pieces, they were bought resale or on discount. The only full price item here are my sunglasses which were a vacation splurge.

Lydia and I tried multiple locations for these photos before the dinner so you get a mix of backgrounds to enjoy, ha ha.

Here's the first of my two Thanksgiving outfits. My mom hosted for her side of the family for the first time this year. Normally my Grandma does it but she decided to take a year off and let me Mom handle the stress. I wore pants for this celebration because I knew my cousin's 2 year old would be coming and we like to play on the floor. I wanted to wear different shoes but it was really cold so I went with function over fashion. Not that these boots aren't fashionable.

I wore this last Thursday to head up to LuLu Chinese in Greenwich with my fiancé. I was invited to a preview event ahead of their official opening the following day. The event was slightly disappointing because we could barely move around due to the amount of people. But the food made up for it, we loved everything we tried! More on the food below the outfit photos!

I decided to wear my beloved Carven Paris map print dress because it's been neglected this Summer! It even got a compliment from one of the women at the event. Don't you love when that happens?  Before the event started we decided to walk around the block to take outfit photos with no people around.

Paris Map Dress: Carven (YOOX), Velvet Floral Embroidered Mules: Zigi Soho (T.J. Maxx), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Natural Selection Mini Messenger Bag' (Saks Fifth Avenue), Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry 'Gemma' (giveaway win), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)

On to the food! The event was basically everyone standing around long tables (which will have stools during normal business hours) and sitting at the bar with food being brought out in sample sizes.  Our favorites were the chicken spring rolls, salt & pepper shrimp and pork dumplings! The veggie fried rice was also really good. I liked the flavor of the chilled peanut noodles but it's a little odd (for me) to eat cold noodles so I wasn't a huge fan overall.  They also had crab rangoons, pork belly bao buns and a few cocktails floating around the room.

Looks unassuming outside, but the food is amazing

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)
