Classic Lace

What's not to love about a white lace dress?  It's so classic and pretty.  This particular one is very reminiscent of something a young lady would wear during the 1960s.  I know this because I've become obsessed with Adam-12 (a cop drama from the 1960s) and mini dresses are a recurring theme amongst the damsels in distress.  haha..  I mean you're kind of helpless when your dresses are so short that you can't even bend over or reach up high for fear your whole rear end will be exposed.  Who came up with the idea of dresses that are so short they are almost impossible to walk around in?  I'll look that up later.

Anyways, again, it was once again hot as Hades and the idea of wearing anything was becoming troublesome, so that's where the mini dress came in.  Complete with short briefs underneath for some modesty.  Oh and I am definitely having a love affair with these sandals from ASOS.  They were such a steal too, during their summer sales.  I'm so glad I bought them when I did.  I hope they last me at least 2 more summer seasons.

A note about my heart ring.  I've been wearing this everyday for the past few months.  After taking off my wedding rings, my hand started feeling bare and naked and off balanced.  I found a ring that belonged to my mother when she was 20 and decided to borrow it for awhile and it's now become a part of my entire being.  Its a nice connection between my mom and I.  A heart shaped turquoise stone is timeless and its now my favorite piece of jewelry.

Day Trip to Williamsburg

Wanna know what I love?  A good deal.  Any time I find something that intrigues me from Groupon or Living Social, I geek out and buy it.  A couple of weeks ago a few deals popped up for Williamsburg and I snatched them up and planned a fun day trip for myself and my friend.

Since it was going to be hot as hell, I decided on a very sheer and pretty floral blouse, some linen shorts with little ruffles, and then my super comfy and cute leather sandals.  It was quite perfect for the hot hot humidity (hey I live in southern Virginia, so I feel compelled to complain often about the heat) and it was also something I felt stylish in.  I try to look my best for traveling for some obscure reason.  Hehehe....

And so our trip to Williamburg included a fun outting to Colonial Williamsburg, which was free, a tour of Williamsburg Alewerks with a free tasting afterwards, and then we finished off our day of fun with a yummy dinner at a bakery.  Here's some pictures of our sights.

It was so nice to have a cold one after walking around for two hours in Williamsburg.
