Purple Print-cess

Yesterday I attended a big dinner party with lots of close friends and family to celebrate my mom and dad's 37th wedding anniversary.  Oh, they've had their ups and downs, as I'm sure most couples do, but the bottom line is that they've worked hard to build a rock-solid marriage and have been determined to stick matter what.  They're inseparable companions: working together, eating together, sleeping together.  Lol, I love my husband, I do, but I think that if we had to spend every waking moment together, we'd probably drive each other crazy!  All joking aside, however, I truly admire my parents' resilience as a couple and can only strive to build such a strong, lasting bond with my husband.

I'll take any excuse to dress up, but I think this occassion was an excellent reason to do so, don't you think?  I wore a flared, clip-dot cotton voile dress printed with purple florals and accented with delicate crochet lace as well as pintuck and pleat detailing.  It was a gift from my mother and sister, who saw it on a shopping trip at Kohl's and immediately thought of me.  Wasn't that sweet of them?  They know my taste so well!  I paired it with some white leather eyelet platform mules by Guess and jewelry by Lovelina, of course. :)

I kept my makeup soft and simple, a lavender smokey eye with pastel-pink cheeks and lips.

Thanks for hanging out and reading!  Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday! :D



  1. I love this dress. It's like a Dutch delftware print! You look classy as always :)

    1. Now that you mention it, it was probably the inspiration for the print! That's so neat, thanks for pointing out the reference. :D

  2. So pretty, I love everything! Are your shoes comfortable? I wore similar shoes once and they kept on slipping off! I couldn't walk normally... :(

    1. Thanks Jennifer! I love these heels! They're probably the most comfortable shoe that I own! :D
