I wore this embroidered dress from Chicwish yesterday for a casual Sunday look. When my mom and I happened to drive by this patch of sunflowers we knew we had to get out of the car and take pictures (even if it was in somebody's front yard - oops!!). Anyways, I do really love this dress… if you take a look at the close-up pictures you can see that the beadwork is very intricate and beautiful! It has two long, beaded tassels that can either hang in the front or tie in the back. I paired it with my GiGi New York clutch in the color iris - which, by the way, is on super sale right now! If you are contemplating buying something from GiGi New York I would right now because of the awesome sales they have going on… great back-to-school shopping!
Anyways, I had THE BEST weekend of my entire life! You know how I said Chris had a "surprise" for me? Well he really got me good. First he took me to a beautiful park in Charlotte and gave me this David Yurman ring as a birthday present (I started crying because I was so surprised/happy and he thought I was upset because I didn't like it!). Next, he told me that we had reservations at a nice restaurant for dinner that night, but we needed to stop by his friend's house first to pick up something. Right when we got to the house, Chris pretended to be on the phone and asked me to get the door… and when I opened it, there was a roomful of our friends there to surprise me! I was in shock and shaking for at least 30 minutes… I don't know how they were all able to pull it off and keep it a secret from me (a huge thank you to my friend Melissa for helping plan everything!) On another note, I am so thankful for Chris and the relationship we have - ladies, do not be discouraged if you don't find "the One" in college! I was so discouraged in college because of some of the dating relationships I had… but God has a plan for everyone. Please don't settle for anyone who treats you as less than what you are worth… even if you have to wait a long time for him to come along :)
