This week has thrown me for a loop. Not that I am complaining really, but having the Fourth off right in the middle of the week was a little bit confusing. Wednesday felt like it should be Saturday, no? I spent my fourth without really doing any typical Fourth of July activities like barbequing, swimming, or watching fireworks, but it was still a nice day! In the morning we went for a bike ride to get iced coffee and muffins, but it was super hot as usual, so the riding part didn't last too long. We then invited R's mom to go see Moonrise Kingdom with us, thinking we would have the whole theatre practically to ourselves in the middle of the day on the fourth. Wrong. It was so hot out, that everyone had the same idea! The movie was adorable though and I would pretty much wear Suzy's outfit every day if I could. Then, we went to a new diner and had breakfast for dinner! So, even though it may not have been how I have celebrated in the past in New Jersey, with bike riding, a trip to the movies, and breakfast for dinner at a 50s style diner, it still felt like a good All-American sort of day!
Secretary Dress: Vintage, for sale in shop
Belt: vintage from this dress
Floral Crown: DIY
Anyway, I am loving this soft grey secretary dress that is now for sale in my shop. I had a hard time styling it almost because there were so many options! With a versatile cut and color, it can really easily be dress up or down. I paired it with bright blues and yellows because, hey, its summer, and I was taking pictures in a field! Also, my shop is having a huge summer sale right now, so you can take 30% off your entire order with the coupon code JULY30 at checkout!
It's supposed to get down to seventy degrees this weekend and be overcast, and I could not be happier! I never thought I would say that, because I love summer and sun, but I need a little mini break from the near 100 degree heat wave we have had here for weeks! We may go to a brewery after work because the gourmet grilled cheese food truck is going to be there and I haven't been able to catch it yet! Grilled cheese and beer, hooray Friday!
Do you have any exciting weekend plans?
ps. The post title is an adorable quote from Moonrise Kingdom if anyone was confused :)
