Frock Fridays

I'm such a jet-setter - a weekend in Chicago there, another in New York here... what a life!

Yep, I'm headed to the Big Apple tonight, and I can't wait.  Officially, I'm going up for a friend's wedding on Saturday, but of course I've packed the two days to the brim.  My grandparents have very graciously agreed to put me up while I'm in town, so I'm really looking forward to spending some quiet time with them high above the busy streets.  A few of my closest girls from college and I have a schmancy brunch planned for Saturday morning, after which I'll run around the city getting reacquainted with my old haunts - and grabbing a quick and cheap pedicure, natch - before getting ready for the evening's festivities.  Think the outfit below will work for everything I've got going on during the day?  I love the pop of the Tiffany blue against the neutral dress and shoes!  And I can't resist pink toesies...

Sunday will be a bit more somber: my father will join me in New York, and we'll spend the day going though his late mother's apartment.  It will be sad, but I'm thankful for the chance to reflect on the full life she lived and the loving relationship we enjoyed.

I hope you all have wonderful weekends, too, dear readers, wherever they may take you.  


  1. Hi there!! Love your color block outfit! We hope you have so much fun in NYC this weekend and will be thinking of you on Sunday. I know that will be hard but how sweet that you will be with your dad.
