Lace Back.


This weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Though it was pretty busy, on Saturday PM I got that much needed “me-time” and can go back to being my happy self instead of a whiny brat. I’ve been really into cooking and making yummy cocktails at home… even if its just for me. And I’m currently five episodes into the new season of Orange is the New Black. That show. So good. Hope you guys had a great weekend and are easing back into your work week.

And as for the clothes… this dress is a favorite recent purchase. You may remember it from my Instagram, here. I love the fit + flare shape and that the back is all lace. I wore it to work but you could just as easily wear it to a summer wedding. I’m all about a great statement dress for summer… you look great without having to put much thought into your outfit. ;)

    I find it hard to believe you’re ever a brat! I love this feminine outfit on you and I’m head-over-heels for that bag!

      haha, you are sweet. I was a little whiny in Saturday’s post… have just been a little burnt out!

    Glad you got to recharge this weekend, and love this dress! The lace band in the middle makes it look like you could be wearing a matching set, instead of a dress. So fun!

    What a fun dress! ANd, OITNB… so in love, too. We are just four eps in. Practically forcing my kids to sleep so we can get in an extra few minutes here and there (parenting at its finest!). GLad you had a good weekend.

    I love this dress!! Fit and flare dresses are like the only thing I’ve been buying lately, because they’re so comfortable and flattering. Love the lace details on the back!

    What a wonderful outfit Grace! I love the pattern of that dress and the lace detail. Looks great paired with the jacket. I love when it is the beginning of summer and warm enough to wear a dress, but also not too hot so you can still wear a jacket! Lusting after your great Zac Posen bag!
    Happy Monday! xo

    That coat is amazing! I’m 11 episodes into OITNB, happened to catch a terrible cold so had to stay home from work thankfully I had this season to keep me entertained!
