Tonight we're going to Husband's cousin's high school graduation. We're all very excited for him and I'm particularly excited because I intend to wear my new Graphical Dress! I'll have Husband take a picture of me tonight and I'll post it with my What I Wore post tomorrow. Right now the weather appears to be cooperating: if it rains, they'll move the ceremony inside and there won't be enough space for us to attend. I'm hoping the weather holds out! Sadly, my Graphical Dress isn't work appropriate (or at least I haven't yet figured out how to make it work appropriate) so I had to find something else to wear today.
Top, Ann Taylor, size Large
Penciled Abronia Skirt, Anthropologie, size 14
Shoes, Franco Sarto
Necklace, Handmade by my sister-in-law
Earrings, gift from my uncle (high school graduation!)
Grand Slam Bracelet, Anthropologie
Inch of Gold Bracelets, Cruise ship purchases
Well, if I can't wear my Graphical Dress to work. My Penciled Abronia Skirt is the next best thing! My goal today was simple: stay cool. The humidity has really been unbearable and just walking from my parking lot to my office is a chore. I don't have court today - only meetings - so being sleeveless is appropriate (at least I think it is!)
Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a $25 Anthropologie gift card and a Bondi Band. Click on the picture in the top right of my blog to enter. Like I said yesterday, every day of the giveaway, I'm going to write about a personal memory for one of the Queen songs you all have listed as your favorites! I really have to say, I'm seriously impressed with some of the picks - you guys are Queen fans and don't even realize it!
You're My Best Friend - I was so excited when I saw that Sara from You, Me & Anthropologie commented that she and her fiance are using this song at their wedding next month (Congratulations in advance, by the way!) Why was I so excited? Because Husband and I used this song at our wedding too. We hired a string trio who learned to play it for a "musical interlude" during the ceremony (they also played Don't Stop Believin' by Journey - they were undoubtedly the coolest string trio ever!) In fact, I'm seriously considering bringing one of our wedding programs to NYC with me next month for Dr. May's book signing. How cool would it be for him to sign our wedding program? I'll probably chicken out though. This is a really sweet song that John Deacon (the bassist) wrote for his wife Veronica. (They're still married after 30+ years so obviously the sentiment was true).
I just remembered that I promised my second batch of Anthropologie Fitting Room Reviews today so I'll post those later tonight!
