This dress is a relatively new addition to my closet and I have no regrets. I wore it to my cousin’s coed baby shower party (baby bash!) and I got so many sweet compliments on it! The off the shoulder elastic is not too tight at all and it feels so flirty and feminine. Also, how darling is the ruffle on the heels? Since I’m 5’11 I usually don’t wear heels that are taller than 2 or 3 inches out and about. Michael loves it when I wear heels but if I wear super tall ones, the tall comments from people just get absurd. These heels are a perfect height.
So I’m sure you are all aware that it is peony season! Everyone fashion blogger on the planet (myself included) has been posting peony pictures on Insta. I see why everyone is so obsessed with them, they are so elusive. They’re in season for hardly any time at all. And then when they finally pop open they last for only a few days! But oh my gosh they are just so gorgeous and smell so good.
This weekend Michael came back from grocery shopping and he picked up a few peonies for me. But the thing is they weren’t in bloom at all and all three of them were tight little buds. I thought for sure I wouldn’t get them to bloom because they looked so closed. I ended up googling a couple different ways to help them open up and now they’re big and full. Stay tuned – you will probably see a picture of them on Insta 😉 If you need to help your peonies open up just gently place the bud in warm water for 5 minutes! Also, put them in a warm place for a couple hours (like outside).
Have the best Monday ♥
