in which there was pomp and circumstance

I know you already got a glimpse of this outfit yesterday, but I really liked it!  When my mom and I went to the outlets last weekend, this was one of the first things I tried on when we arrived, and the last thing I bought just before we left!  It was "expensive" (relatively speaking), and I wasn't sure it was worth the big bucks.  Obviously, I made my choice :)

(dress: gap; jacket: thrifted; shoes: tilly's)

This is what I wore to my mom's graduation and after party, where I drank dacquiris and ate snacks and sang songs.  It was really nice to spend the weekend there with the whole family--on Sunday we made Eggs Benedict (my brother poached the eggs while I failed miserably at making hollandaise and had to call in the master chef [guess who] on her special day--and it. was. delicious.), went for a walk in the woods, watched "The Vow", and lazed about the house until it was time for me to head over to a friend's birthday bonfire and then--finally--home.

  2. Your mothers' day sounds like it was so nice! You did a lot more than I did! We just made breakfast, lazed around the house, and then went to dinner. haha
    I really like this maxi dress on you. The print is really summery and cool! I love the denim jacket paired with it.
