I’m happy to be waking up on a sunny Monday morning after seven out of eight straight days of rain–yesterday was the first time in a week it stayed dry, and I think everyone around town has a little spring in their step thanks to the weather Gods throwing us a bone!
Who else watched the wedding on Saturday? A few of us got together starting at 5:15am and soaked up every minute. I thought Meghan looked beautiful and I loved her dress…I do get why people naturally compare it to Kate’s, but in my mind, it’s sort of like apples to oranges. Their personal styles are so different, the circumstances are so different, and they’re just different people…I do wish the sleeves were more fitted, but thought she looked classic and exquisite–messy bun and all (I am so #teammessybun). It was also fun to watch a slightly less traditional take on a royal wedding and see how Meghan was able to fold in what was important to her, even if it led to some confusion amongst the British guests. The bridesmaids and pageboys were adorable, and Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon was unexpected but powerful–though I did think it was slightly lengthy for the occasion–and absolutely loved The Kingdom Choir’s performance of “Stand By Me” and 19 year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s trio. And can we talk about her dress + Diana’s ring for the evening? Everything definitely lived up to expectations and it was such a beautiful morning–did you watch, too? Thoughts? I’ll be continuing to soak up all the coverage I can in the coming days!
And back to reality: stripes and white jeans! This is a pretty standard outfit for me, but the newest addition are these Day Glove leather flats. You may have seen me talk about them on Instagram stories a few weeks ago and I wish I could show you the leather flats in person…it’s really amazing! They’re lightweight and don’t require breaking in (a miracle of sorts) and while I typically gravitate towards black flats, opted for the light pink this time and love how the color pairs with white jeans. They’ll transition well into the fall, too, and we all know how I feel about seasonless pieces :) I like that they’re a little different than the traditional ballet flat, but still classic enough to go with everything–especially desk to drinks. While I probably wouldn’t walk miles in them if you need more support (I’m flat footed, so am always careful here), they’re definitely a good “commuting flat” option if you walk to work and are looking for something comfortable and chic.
