TGIF! I feel like I blinked and it is already Friday! Anyone else feeling this way? I think it might have to do with my extra busy schedule this week and my upcoming birthday next week. Like I said yesterday, we are heading to San Francisco to celebrate this weekend. I have been once and Patrick has never been to San Francisco, so I would love all the recommendations you have!
Now onto this darling dress. The shirtdress may be one of my favorite styles. The fit is so easy and they never go out of style. When Micaela Meyer reached out with her #perfectshirtdress, I was more than ecstatic to try it out. Micaela has been perfecting the shirtdress for years thanks to her father’s love for bespoke shirts. Her attention to quality is what makes these dresses “extra” special. I was torn between two styles when picking out my first shirtdress from the collection. I am wearing the Kensington in pink, but after seeing Krystal in the Mayfair, I think that is my next one on my wish list. I have been wearing the Kensington dress non-stop, even at home when I am sitting at my computer. It reminds me of when I would wear Patrick’s giant button downs in college. His shirts are too big for me to wear outside of the house, so this is the perfect alternative :)
I am packing my bags again for a quick “surprise” trip to San Francisco for my birthday! Patrick had the entire trip planned as a surprise, but decided to tell me because the weather is a little funky in Northern California. Living in Dallas, I was having a hard time even thinking about buying coats, sweaters and boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but since I now have the perfect excuse, I have been filling my cart with some great deals! I showed you my early access picks last week and I am making sure to follow the same strategy.
There is something so charming about the island. Maybe it is the rich history or the hydrangeas in full bloom, but whatever it may be I never wanted to leave. I was seriously considering sending for the dogs and moving into Mackenzie’s family home. Mackenzie and her family were the best hosts, they showed us all of their favorite spots on the island, one of them being the ‘Sconset Bluff Walk. If you are not familiar, the bluff walk is a little walking path through the backyards of some of the island’s oldest homes. On one side is the ocean and the other side you have an unobstructed view of the beautiful homes.
