I don’t think I ever got around to telling you what I did last weekend (although it was documented on Instagram just like everything else I do). Well, after a super boring but super mandatory test Saturday morning, we headed down to Bloomington. Saturday was cold and rainy, but Sunday warmed up and was pretty darn gorgeous. Gorgeous enough to warrant a cute dress and a stop by Oliver Winery on the way out of town. I’ve been there a dozen times, but does tasting wine ever get old? I think not. I may or may not have taken home a couple “souvenirs.”

I’m trying to think of something clever to say about this outfit but I’m coming up short (which I often do…as I am short). I’m blaming my writer’s block on the large amount of queso I just consumed. For most women, cheese goes straight to the hips. For me, it goes straight to the brain apparently. But even if it did go to my hips, I would camouflage it well in this fit and flare dress. BOOM. Clever segue back to the outfit. I’m amazing.

P.S. How great is this sparkly collar?!

Hey there, lovely readers! Thanks to everyone who has been following my NYC adventures on Instagram. In the meantime, here’s the outfit I wore last week to the Megan & Liz show. Since it just happens to include a couple of new goodies from H&M, this is a good time to remind you that tomorrow is the last day to enter the 50 States of Fashion Contest! Just Instagram a photo of yourself in a killer outfit and tag it with #HMShopOnlineXX (fill in your state’s initials). You could win one of several $250 H&M gift cards, or the grand prize of a $1000 gift card and a trip to NYC. Since I am in NYC right now I can confirm that it’s a fun place to go. So enter away!

Incidentally, this is also a Pin to Real Life outfit! See my inspiration here.

I wore this yesterday to go to a bridal shower. Typical summer Sunday activity, right? Except that this one took place at what I can only describe as a 1970s Gatsby mansion. I had no idea a place like this existed in Indianapolis, but it does. There are columns all over the place, a pool in the back, crazy awesome art and antiques everywhere, and lots of chairs that leave you wondering whether you’re actually supposed to sit in them or not. The people who own the house are named Fortune because of course they are. I don’t know how to fully describe this place, but you can see a few photos in my Instagram feed.

Anyway, after a lot of oohing and ahhing, I had to go back to the real world. Conveniently, the Gatsby home was close to the 100 Acres Art & Nature Park (which I recommend if you’re in the Indy area), so we walked off the bellinis there and snapped these photos. I felt like I looked pretty cute, but it’s hard not to feel a little inadequate when you wear a $20 dress to a zillion dollar home.
