Que Bella – Busy Weekend

This past weekend was pretty busy for us. We had a family reunion that involved a 3-hour drive, one-way, for us and it was also our Wedding Anniversary. Because of the reunion, we were unable to go to dinner Saturday night. Husband picked a super-casual place for dinner Friday night so I wasn’t able to wear what I originally wanted, the Lace Blouson Dress in Black.

I still wore a dress, my new Loft purchase I blogged about here. I paired it with the Mossimo Pollie Strappy Espadrille. These are going to be my favorites for the summer.  

It looks like the dress never made it online and it was sold out in my store when I stopped by over the weekend. It is all one piece and has slightly diagonal stripes on top with ruching/gathering at the side which then allows the stripes to change to completely horizontal. I like the slight cap-sleeve, fits great in a Size Medium and is lined (in poly…boo).

For the reunion, I went all J Crew wearing the Linen Cable-Knit Sweater in Navy, with a navy cami underneath, J Crew Summerweight Chino Shorts in Modern Red (same color in the 9-inch shorts) and the Soludos for J Crew in Navy Stripe. 
Now, regarding the comfort of the Soludos, I love them. The rope insole does not bother me in the slightest. I think I may add an insole but only because they are the tiniest bit loose on me. As I stated before, I am a 6 1/2 to a 7 in shoes and chose the bigger of the two sizes (6, 7). Aldo has some great terry insoles that are perfect for these casual shoes. Also, they’ve added a Chambray online and I saw a Navy/Red Stripe in store over the weekend. These are now in serious consideration for my trip. I’m tempted to buy them in white and soak them in tea to change the color, since they’ll dirty up pretty quickly anyway.
Have a Great Day!
