Hello my loves!! Hope you’ve all been keeping well as the winter, no longer softened by the busyness of the holidays, continues to bite. Now that the mandatory distractions of gift shopping and over-indulgence are behind us, I’ve decided to step up my game and post a little more frequently; actually a couple of friends encouraged me to do so and I fully agree –for some reason I thought one can write only one blog post per week. Duh!
Hubby took this post’s photos back in November before we’d set out for our adventures across Europe, and only now am I getting around to posting them. The dress I’m wearing was purchased on our Florida trip from the store @papayaclothing
What attracted me to this dress is how simple it is. It might appear to be just a one-piece free-flowing grey dress, but it’s the attention to detail that sealed the deal for me.
The discreet key peephole and the high neckline is genius in that it elongates the neck, giving it that regal elegant appearance. With no room for a necklace, a simple pair of drop earrings would have sufficed in adding a little glamour to the whole ensemble. I will confess that I am terrible at remembering to accessorize. I can’t tell you how many times this has happened, I need to work on it.
We took these photos on the banks of the Connecticut River in Hartford. The sun was setting and we had gone for a walk after dinner and hubby thought the river would be a perfect backdrop to capture the magic of the evening. Needless to say, we have since learnt that shadows must be factored in for sunset shoots.
Well, that’s it for this post my lovelies. I expect to do another one in a couple of days so please stay tuned. Till then, ciao!!
