Hello again from the west coast! My impromptu business trip eventually came to an end, and I'm back to the real world. My trip was truly wonderful, though, and a nice change of pace. I was in Connecticut most of the week, where I worked out of our office there and bonded with my co-workers. I also got to go into New York City a couple of times, which was a real treat. I went in once on "business," which meant visiting the boutiques of the stores I do customer service for and feeling the clothes in person. I then went in on my own over the weekend, where I met up with my friend Callie. Callie came in from Washington DC, and we spent the weekend wandering around without a plan. It turned out to be perfect, as we had a blast walking the Highline, visiting an SNL exhibit full of costumes and props from the show, and eating delicious Italian food. Callie and I only get to see each other every few months or so, and it was wonderful getting to spend the weekend catching up. I also had the pleasure of meeting up with Jen of JennifHsieh, who was seriously the best. I've never had a bad experience meeting a blogging friend in person, and this was no exception. If I lived in New York, I would force her to hang out with me all the time. She's that cool.
I wore this on Saturday to drink coffee with Whitney at Ink & Bean and visit the Everything Darling pop-up there. I haven't gotten to see Natalie and Grace, the lovely ladies behind the store, in some time, so it was fantastic getting to see them and their adorable clothes again. I almost bought everything, but I refrained. Be proud.
This is dress is one of my favorites, and it seemed like a perfect fit to pair it with this Tuesday Bassen pin from Hello Holiday. A heart lollipop? It's too cute. TOO. CUTE.
