what I wore: dress – vintage via cheap thrills, heels – steve madden
This dress has been around the block, as is the case with all good vintage. I first saw it in the window at Mae’s, (I was truly window shopping!) then my friend Angela wore it beautifully to a wedding (here) earlier this summer. A few weeks ago, my mom surprised me with it after my friends at Cheap Thrills told her I had my eye on it. I’d been saving it for a special occasion and our 1st anniversary was just that.
Long weekends are always wonderful. We went to the lake, out to dinner, to the pool and farmer’s market. It finally feels like summer!
Every year during carnival season, I wonder (more than usual) why I ever left New Orleans. The city is really so different than any other place in the country. Once you fall in love, you start a life-long affair with the place. Who couldn’t love a city that shuts down for a party?
So, although it’s just another Tuesday in Fayetteville, I’m wishing everyone a happy mardi gras! Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Tomorrow is my brand new hubby’s birthday. We took the day off to celebrate (as if we really needed an occasion). Isn’t it so much fun to make merry and be carefree and just bask in happiness? Yeah the answer is yes.
I hope you’re celebrating something, anything this weekend!
Happy birthday, darling…
This weekend will be filled with sun, entertaining, celebrating, dinner reservations, errands and hopefully (as always) romance.

I love this! It’s from the May/June 2011 issue of Lonny and there is a whole New Orleans section (pointed out to me by the dear Tina from Sweet on Design). This makes me super excited because I’m heading down there on Friday for my bachelorette party! I cannot wait. Check out the newest issue of Lonny and Magazine Street, next time you’re in the Big Easy…
