to me, summer has become synonymous with wolffer estate summer in a bottle rosé. from the sweetness to the perfectly refreshing taste, it's no wonder my family and i bought 10 cases for the summer! but let's be honest...the real reason i'm absolutely obsessed with this rosé is because of the bottle. can we talk about those colors!? so when i saw this dress, i instantly thought of summer in a bottle and couldn't help but pour myself a glass. what are some of your favorite summer drinks?
it's no secret that i'm mildly obsessed with stripes...so there was no surprise when i instantly fell in love with this flutter sleeved dress! oh, and pippa middleton kind of liked it too so no big deal. i have worn this dress on countless occasions (most of them being work) and the silhouette makes it perfect for anything life throws at you! i hope everyone has an amazing monday and an even better week ahead!
full disclosure: i am not at all irish...but i'm not at all mad about looking like a modern-day twenty something leprechaun in this dress. being a redhead (and irish imposter), i was always told to wear green and that it was "my color." me and my closet full of everything but green strongly disagree. but now and again, i get lucky and find just the right shade! what instantly drew me to this dress was that the base is an ivory and just the details were green: totally manageable!
as many of you remember, i had the most amazing time this year at the veuve clicquot polo classic. one thing that i didn't mention, was that i was approached by two men from the new york times style section and they asked to photograph and interview me about my outfit. queue the internal screaming! i tried my best to play it "cool" but i think you all can imagine how "not cool" i was. i immediately ran back to dana and freaked out about it for roughly 10 minutes (okay way longer than 10 minutes). my initial thought was to instastory the experience but my better judgement knew not to jinx it: an interview wasn't a guarantee to be in the paper. so i waited. i checked the two sunday papers following the classic but saw nothing as i assumed the style section was only published on that day. i began to give up hope thinking that i may have missed it or was not included in the article but then the unthinkable happened: i received a facebook notification, while at work, where someone had mentioned that i was seen in the paper. i don't think i've ever googled anything so fast! and there it was, right before my eyes...myself in the new york times style section...and it was about time!
