My Last Weekend of Freedom

The past weekend was a busy one. I tried to savor it, knowing that from this weekend forward they will be busy, busy- but I couldn’t be more excited! I spent the day at the store with my husband and in laws tagging and hanging my merchandise while they put the finishing touches on everything!

You see, this Thursday, my storefront for Elizabeth & West opens. I will spend my Saturdays (as well as Tues-Fri) there pretty much living my dream. It will make for packed weekends though! But I couldn’t be more excited. Like, beside myself with excitement. Eeeeeeeekkkk! 

I can’t wait to meet customers, fill inventory, decorate and redecorate my window, enjoy visits from my husband and girls after they visit the market a few doors down the block. This, to me, is the life. Of course, I will miss the lazy Saturdays with my family, but knowing I won’t have the whole day with them will make me enjoy and savor the time I have with them for sure!!

Even though I was doing tedious work at the store, I wanted to be presentable, as people have been popping in the store all week wondering when I will be opening. This dress was the perfect “presentable but comfy” I was looking for! To say I love this dress is an understatement. I think what I love most about it is the length in the back. An extra coverage I have on my rear is great in my book! I didn’t have to worry bending over or anything! Love it. In fact, I love it so much, I also got it in this print. Cannot wait for it to make its blog appearance!

And, I am still on the fence with the whole Panama Hat thing. I feel like it is kind of Amish looking (not that that’s a bad thing!), or that it just looks weird on me. It’s growing on me, but totally not sold on it. I feel way more comfortable in my fedora hats! 

Outfit Details:

Dress: Target /// Shoes: Target /// Hat: Target (similar) /// Bag: TJ MAXX /// Necklace: c/o Julie Vos /// Bracelets: Alex and Ani, Stella and Dot /// Sunglasses: Steve Madden via TJ MAXX /// Midi Rings: Target

Hope you all had a great weekend! What a great week ahead! If you hear random screams from time to time that will probably be me screaming with excitement!!!!! Yay, yay, yay!!!
