Oldy but Goody







Dress: Leith | Clutch: Mossimo | Heels: Steve Madden | Necklace: Target | Bracelet: Nadri | Earrings: Nadri | Ring: Nadri | Lipliner: MAC in Edge to Edge | Lip Color: Bare Minerals in Juju 

I've had this dress forever. I mean I featured it in one of my very first blog posts in a different color. I purchased it before I even started blogging and it is still fully stocked in several colors. I think that speaks volumes to how timeless it is. Well, I pulled it out of my closet the other day for date night and instantly knew I had to post it. This green is perfect for spring and summer and the racerback cut can be dressed up or down. We all know how much I love a good shift dress, especially for date night (I mean handmade pasta and lots of it is my fav). The straps on this dress are wide enough that you can criss-cross your bra straps and wear it so comfortably. I paired this color with black shoes and black and gold accessories. 

My aunt was in town last weekend and we had a blast. I picked her up from the airport and we went to lunch at one of our favorites, Blue Water, for some crab and artichoke dip and tacos and then did a little shopping. We met up with Tony, my mom and Brucy for dinner and had a really relaxing night. On Friday we went up to Glen Ivy Spa for the day... or tried to at least. When they are full they turn you away at the gate which is a real bummer, but they give you a raincheck pass for free entry with a booked service ($50 savings), which will definitely come in handy sometime soon. When we left there we were scouring the internet for something similar to do between Corona and San Diego. We finally landed on renting a cabana at the Pala Resort and Spa. It was $100 for a half day and that includes a cabana for up to six people, non-alcoholic beverages, a fruit platter and butler services. We had a blast and all agreed that we had more fun than we think we would have otherwise. On Sunday we had a beautiful brunch at my mom and Brucy's and then drove the coast for a while. We hiked Torrey Pines and finished the day at our house for dinner and way too many rounds of Scattergories. My aunt left Sunday morning and I miss her terribly, but we had such a sweet visit. It was definitely one for the books. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
