Here’s a fun story about this dress. I got it a few years ago, and even though I love it and think it is super cute, I rarely wear it because it is impossible to get off. I am not sure what happened with the design of this frock but it has no stretch and this weird, worthless side zipper. So while it is easy to put on, taking it off is always an ordeal to the point where I stress about it the entire time I am wearing it. I like to avoid stress at all costs, so I only wear this dress when it’s absolutely necessary.

This past weekend, my husband and I went on an adventure to Block Island. Y’all it was gorgeous. Everyone should go. As you will see from the abundant photos after the jump, it was a bit cloudy. That did not take away from this place’s beauty.
Oh, and another thing happened on Block Island. Matt made me hike seven miles. Your girl was scaling cliffs and walking through overgrown grass so he could see a lighthouse. Is that the definition of love? Being covered in leaves, sand, and sweat and following your betrothed all over the wilderness so he can see a lighthouse? Oy. Here’s the photo of said lighthouse below. Worth it? Maybe.
This is definitely my favorite way to style a cropped top. This styling method is easier to wear day-to-day compared to look one, and much more dressed up compared to look two. The high waisted, full skirt balances out the risque look of the cropped top and creates a gorgeous silhouette that is flattering on basically anyone.
Look two is a signifanctly more laid back way of styling the skirt seen in look one. The slouchy sweatshirt top (similar) takes the skirt down a notch, making this a perfect look for brunch with friends or even a causal day at the office.
Also, funny story about the Rocket Pop: After we finished using this popsicle as a prop, it was time to start eating it. Being the nice person that I am, I asked my husband if he wanted a bite of my popsicle. He did. Then he proceeded to bite off the entire red part. I was both impressed and intensely jealous. Good thing the white and blue parts are my favorite anyway! Moral of the story? Share your Rocket Pops with caution, y’all. The end.
I spent the day at seedy, crazy, cool Coney Island this weekend. Coney Island is pretty far away from where I live in Harlem, but with the help of the fabulous folks at Blacklane Limousines, a little black town car got me and the hubby there quick and in a hurry (and in style, of course)! Woot!
So here’s the thing, I had all these grand plans of taking cute photos of the carnival food I ate. But as soon as I got my hands on that hot funnel cake I immediately ate it. So you just have to imagine the carnival food as there are no photos of food below.
However, I did get a photo of me and the Zoltar:
The beach was great for people watching, though! However, I really must wear a longer skirt next time. The wind was not my friend on Coney Island and I am pretty sure I flashed everyone multiple times.
And another big thanks to Blacklane for carting us around all day! xo
So this Tibi color block maxi is now my absolute favorite thing ever. I dressed it up for these photos with some fancy metallic heels, but this dress is also great with flip flops on the beach. It is the perfect all-purpose dress for when you want to make a statement. And don’t we always want to make a statement??
May I also add that this frock is way on sale? Go ahead, treat yo’self.
I always complain that most of the shoes I own aren’t really meant for the excessive amount of walking I do in the city on the weekends. I walk, at least three miles a day on Saturday and Sunday, especially when the weather is nice. Last weekend, my husband and I clocked six miles walking from our apartment in Harlem to midtown east. My feet were on FIRE by the time we got to the restaurant. The dinky little flats I had on were not cutting it.
Then I remembered that I had a couple of pairs of Keds in my closet. They are a little dirty, and definitely not glam, but they are perfect for long walks. You’re welcome, feet.
Anyway, Matt and I always walk by the Central Park Conservatory Garden, but we have never gone in. This weekend we decided to head inside and we weren’t disappointed. The garden is just gorgeous. If you are ever in the city, I highly recommend visiting. It is small enough to cover in a hour or so, and it is the perfect city oasis.
Okay, this has nothing to do with these photos, but I feel like I have developed adult allergies that strike in the morning. From the moment I wake up, until about 11am I am Countess Sneezes-A-Lot (yes, I made this title up).
literally figuratively sitting at my desk sneezing every five minutes. I even annoy myself. Looks like it’s time to get on the Claritin train.
Anyone else live an allergy-free life until adulthood? Or am I the lone weirdo?
