As you know (if you read in the past) I love to blog and talk about Jcrew as long as my life permits it. Family has come first the last couple months with travel and fun things so I haven't taken the time to post. I always miss it but try to make sure blogging doesn't take away from my family priorities. With all of our travel settling I wanted to catch up and say hello and express how much I have missed the Jcrew world.
Let's be honest though, I was still around!
So with that, I have to start with a BIG THANK YOU! Your feed back on the cocktail dress was sooooo helpful.
Our trip to New York City was great. It was the first time in 5 years that my husband and I have gone on a trip without kids.
Overall I loved New York. It was fun to visit and there was always something to do and see. What I loved most of all was that the Subway allows you to see the whole island in a matter of days. Yes, my husband and I found that we work as hard at play as we do with work and by the end we had walked an amazing amount but it was all worth it. I wanted to see it all and I feel like I saw a lot. I don't anticipate going back, I feel like I experienced what I wanted, but it was a pleasure.
So what dress did I wear to the big event? I went with a dress that would work for this event and then also church or other functions in my day to day life.
I dressed this up with velvet black pumps, multiple strings of pearls, red lips, and a clutch. I found that bankers are fashion challenged (generalizing) and so I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. I would call that a success, and even more because I didn't spend a lot on it.
Now, I didn't stop my travels in New York. I proceeded to Portland and Salt Lake so I do have some fitting room reviews to share and they are next!
