Wine and Wind


Two weekends ago, the fiance and I headed up to the roof deck to watch the Kentucky Derby and enjoy a bottle of wine. (Our building has quite the swanky roof, with the outdoor television and furniture set-up.) While the weather was mild on the ground, the wind was in full effect ten floors up.

I initially met this dress in Anthropologie back in January. Even though we had a temperate winter, I could not fathom shopping for spring at the time of our acquaintance. However weeks later, I just could not forget about it, or the lovely dress that I wrote about last week. By the beginning of April, both dresses were marked down and thus, found a home in my closet.

Ever since Kate Middleton started sporting them, I have been on the hunt for a pair of navy blue wedges. The ones I frequently see her in have a cork wedge, and I suspect that they are this style.

I was not ready to take the plunge on such a pricey shoe, having never tried them on. Instead I went with an espadrille wedge with a little less aggressive height. They fit true to size and an overall great choice.

I have already expressed my love for Krewe du Optic eyewear. I last wore this pair on an unseasonably warm Sunday in February. I love the blue polarized lenses against the tortoise frames and 24 karat gold arms. I’m obsessed about this particular pair in this particular colorway until they eventually disappeared from the online store. And then I obsessed about them even more, until I eventually called the brick-and-mortar location and asked if there were any left. There was indeed a pair left, and they were my Valentine’s Day gift.
