What I Wore 53: Stripes and Sailboats

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

At the suggestion of Diana, Rob and I headed to Lake Harriet the other evening to walk around and listen to some music. It was our first real encounter with any Minnesota lakes, and we were kind of blown away by how beautiful it was. Coming from Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, I'm obviously used to being on the water, but sailboats are just something else entirely.

Rob got me this sweet little dress for my birthday two years ago (what?) and I love it so much. I don't wear enough patterned things. It's really twirly, which is great, until the wind picks up a bit and I almost flash everyone around me. It's fine.

Dress: Modcloth
(Similar ones here and here.)
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Watch: Fossil

  6. The dress is adorable, not that I'm surprised!

    If you guys have any time to vacation before the real Minnesota cold sets in, and you REALLY want to see a MN lake, Lake Superior can't be beat. I highly recommend heading up toward Two Harbors- it's under three hours from the Cities, just north of Duluth, and it's perfect. My family has kept a vacation home just outside Two Harbors for several generations, and it genuinely feels like the edge of the world (except you can see Wisconsin on the opposite shore, but whatever). Shoot me an email if you'd like details! :)

  9. Sailboats are something else! I love them.

    The built in flash feature is so fun, huh?!? lol...I have a couple of pieces like that and they are always good for a mini heart attack and major laugh! Every one of them are still in my closet though so clearly it's worth it!
