Hello everyone! I want to share one more Anthropolgie dress while it’s still in stock and on sale. This off the shoulder midi dress is currently less than $40 (marked down from $148). In the summer I am constantly searching for breezy dresses I can throw on with minimal accessorizing for a quick-stylish look. The Maeve Mona off-the shoulder dress can be dressed up with heels or wedges and the right jewelry for a summer wedding or dinner party but also looks great for summer classes or brunching with your besties. I find radiant orchid to be a really flattering color on a variety of skin tones. I personally don’t love deep purple but this blend of pink and purple makes me feel like the flowers blooming throughout Calistoga right now.
While working on creating a detailed archive of all of the dating posts I’ve ever written I fell down a rabbit hole of reading posts from the past. While I certainly cringe at some of the silly things I wrote I always think it’s fun to look back in time and see the way I saw the world through this virtual time capsule I’ve created. I used to post a whole lot more “magazine celebrity feature” style posts on myself. I think every girl likes to flip through magazines and read the short snippets in which their favorite celebrities or icons fill in the blanks answering random questions. While I am certainly no celebrity I can pretend for a moment, no?
Three Qualities I hope to Embody: Intelligence, Empathy & Culture
What I’m Currently Reading: Anne of Green Gables, I read it several times as a child but it is extra special as an adult.
My Party Persona: I’m a blend of two people, I’m either quiet and painfully introspective or bouncing around as bubbly as the champagne I’m holding.
A Song that always makes me Cry: Where I Stood by Missy Higgins, it really takes me back to breaking up with my first serious boyfriend at age 20 and how vulnerable I felt then.
My Go To Drink Order: Usually a glass or prosecco or champagne. I’m so boring & I almost always regret drinking hard alcohol.
On my Bucket List: Graduate from law school, Travel the world, Make Love in a Field of Faisies (in no particular order).
The Beauty Essential I CANNOT Live Without: Kate Somerville’s Quench Serum, it feels so luxurious before bed. I cannot stand dry skin!
What I’m most likely to Impulse Buy: Books & Clothes, it depends on my mood.
What I thought I wanted in a Partner: Tall and intellectual with intriguing eyes.
What I now think Matters Most: A deep and meaningful friendship with endless respect for one another.
A House is not a Home Without: A dog, most definitely.
One of my Favorite Celebrity Style Icons: Jane Birkin, I love looking at old photos of her in the 60s and 70s.
Something I’m Embarrassed to Admit: After an emotionally exhausting day I’ve been known to eat pasta in the bathtub. I don’t know if I’m truly embarrassed by that but I think it does make me a little odd.
