Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you’re having a supafab weekend. Aside from Friday night, I’ve been pretty much holed up in the #pinkchairpalace all weekend, studying accounting like there’s no tomorrow. But at least I had an interesting Friday night, right?
Friday night, I went to my first-ever Boulevard. What’s that, you ask? In case you don’t already know, I’m currently pursuing my MBA at SMU here in Dallas. SMU has a very special tailgating tradition called “Boulevarding” (yes, it’s apparently a verb): they turn the entire main street of campus into giant tent setups and really just a huge party. A huge, red, white, and blue (SMU’s colors) party.
Over the weekend, I was in my best friend from childhood’s wedding in Austin. My friend and I met around age four, though we didn’t really become close until we were about six years old. And then we stayed close. For the next twenty years.
As a native Austinite, is it really that surprising that my friend loves BBQ? Well, she turned that love of BBQ into was a super BBQ-filled wedding weekend. I dug it. I wore this chambray a-line dress to her rehearsal dinner (which was catered by her favorite BBQ joint in Austin, Salt Lick).
Hello there, stranger! Sorry for my long stretch of no contact – I spent this weekend in Austin celebrating my best friend from childhood’s wedding (more on that tomorrow!) and, unfortunately, didn’t plan ahead when it came to the blog so that’s why there was no post on Monday. And then I had to wake up at 4:45AM on Monday to make it back to Dallas in time for class (and obviously passed out the moment I got home from class)… and that’s why there was no post yesterday.
I’ve been all about chic little dresses like this collared lace dress ever since I started business school about a month ago. I’m pretty sure I’ve worn dresses or skirts to class almost every single day… and people are definitely starting to catch on. It’s a no-pants party every single day. And, let’s be real: no pants = the best pants.
Flawless logic right there. That’s how I’m going to pass today’s Finance exam, for sure.
Okay, yeah, I totally roasted while shooting this outfit. But I’m assuming that the rest of the world isn’t experiencing Texas weather right now (aka y’all are starting to get into fall / sub-85°F temperatures) and this navy sweater dress was too cute/comfy not to share immediately.
So like… sure, I’m schvitzing. But I’m schvitzing for you. In case you didn’t know it, that’s true love, y’all.
Y’all already know I’m a Rent the Runway fiend. I’m an Unlimited member and I definitely use the service to its fullest potential. Until this weekend, I had never rented the same piece twice. But like… it was so worth it. Isn’t this Marchesa cocktail dress just the absolute cutest?
