Eden Blazer in apricot:  J.Crew, fall 2010

Greeting everyone!  So I've mentioned before how I plan my outfits the night before...there's just no time in the morning, with trying to hit the gym, get the kids ready and to school and myself to work.  But in the evenings, while my husband supervises bath time for a few minutes, I have the chance to sneak off and stare into my closet for a luxurious 5 minutes or so and decide on what to wear the next day.  While I was standing at my closet last night, contemplating my selection, I found one of my old favorite Anthropologie dresses half hidden in the back.  Oh, Violet Gloaming dress, you had me at your name.  Could there be a more perfect name for a dress?  So romantic and mysterious.  I topped it with a velvet blazer and it felt perfect for a warm, sunny late-fall day.  This dress also brings back wonderful memories, as I wore it to explore the city of New Orleans one fine day in February 2010 with my of my favorite trips ever.  Don't you love when an article of clothing evokes fond memories?

Thanks for visiting!
