Navy Lilac

Bernie Dexter Chelsea dress in Navy Lilac print

I took a bit of an unexpected hiatus this past week, only because I've been having way too much fun with Sammi!  Today would be our first day without solid plans which is actually quite nice.  We've done some shopping, a Disneyland trip, visited some wonderful rescue barn animals, and met up with our friends Elana, Erica, Sarah, and Alex.  We also had time to take outfit photos at one of my favorite local nature reserves.  Having another person with you while you take your own pictures isn't only easier, but it takes the edge off when you have curious people around you.  I've come to the conclusion that they're less likely to ask questions when you're in a group!

Dress- Bernie Dexter (similar)

Lipstick- Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Electro 

I'm so happy I finally own this dress!  It actually came from Bernie Dexter's personal wardrobe and I love that I can give this beauty a great home.  I have this particular style (the Chelsea) in a larger size and wasn't crazy about the fit.  It turns out that I could size down comfortably and I love this style so much more now.  Plus, it's purple.  We all know how I feel about that!

Today we want to do something "touristy".  It's Sammi's last full day so we want to make it memorable.  I think we're going to make our way to Santa Monica Pier, because you get the beach along with lots of fun things to see/do.  The heat has been relentless lately so getting to a cooler climate is a must!
