longleggedlady.comLast week was a rough one for both Derrick and I, so we decided to give ourselves a break and spend the whole weekend dancing, eating and sleeping. It was wonderful and much needed. We took these photos yesterday after a super late brunch and a long, lazy walk around the Mission. This dress is perfect for doing nothing on a 70 degree day.

le chop  |  longleggedlady.comYou may or may not be aware of this, but a marriage isn’t actually recognized by law until the bride chops off all her hair after the wedding. So, now it’s official.

On the subject of the wedding/marriage in general, things are wonderful. The wedding was dreamy. I’ll post all the details on that when I get the photos. Derrick and I have been being obnoxious newlyweds since, and we’re planning the honeymoon (ICELAND!) next.

Back to fashion though. Monica sent me this Amatoria dress as a wedding gift and I’ve been holding out for a special occasion to wear it. On Sunday night I had the perfect opportunity: we went to see our [unbelievably brilliant and talented] friend Chadi dance in a festival at the ODC Theater. He was incredible, his beautiful partner was incredible, they completely stole the show.

Like all of Monica’s work, this dress is flawless. It’s lighter than air, and the patterns on the two layers blend so perfectly. We tried our best, but these photos just don’t do it justice. All I can really say is that I feel absurdly chic when I put it on.

LWD  |  longleggedlady.comI found the perfect little white dress, so summer can officially begin now. I got this beauty on sale from Need Supply. It’s a bit sheer and would be great as a beach cover up, but since our beaches are freezing and I rarely go to them, I’ve just been wearing it around the city with black granny panties.

track pants

Amatoria crop top  |  longleggedlady.comIt’s taken me a good long while to get into this whole track pants/joggers thing, but I’m finally there. They really are just glorified sportswear, and I have a sneaking suspicion that future me (like, 10-15 yrs from now) will roll my eyes when I look back at these pictures, but for now, I love them.Amatoria crop topAmatoria crop  |  longleggedlady.comAmatoria crop top  |  longleggedlady.comZeroUV sunnies, Amatoria crop top, pants from Need Supply, Vince Camuto heels, Alexander Wang bag

Blogging from an airplane at 5:30 am right now. Good morning! I’m on my way to Omaha for two baby showers, my bridal shower, and a whole lot of wedding planning. Holy adulthood.

Since we’re down to just two months until le wedding, I’m trying to hurry up and square away all the little details. One thing I love about it all: I get to support several local businesses and artists that I know personally and really love (more on that in future posts). My biggest fear was that this would feel like a conveyer-belt wedding, but it’s shaping up to be just the opposite.

In non-wedding-related news: we went to the Röyksopp and Robyn concert on Saturday night. It was fantastic. Best surprise ever was Susanne Sundfør’s appearance. I had no idea she was on the tour, and she’s my absolute favorite singer on earth. I’ve seen her once before at The Chapel (perfect venue). Her voice is incredible, and it’s even better live. If you don’t know her music yet, change that immediately.

Sunday was the Pride parade and also it was extremely warm outside, so I ran around all day in this barely-there muscle tank from Reformation and denim pencil skirt from Amatoria. I never get tired of the whole visible-bra thing.

That’s it for now. Happy short work week.

that watch tho.  |  longleggedlady.comMeet my new most favorite accessory: this watch. I found it on Need Supply and mooned over it for a few weeks until they sold out. Luckily for me, Derrick snagged one early on and surprised me with it for my birthday. Whatta guy, right?
