A perfect evening

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Please excuse the iPhone snaps, there's an issue with my Nikon and it's going into repair (hopefully not for long!) But I couldn't wait to share this amazing dress I wore to dinner over our mini staycation. Since it's a non-maternity dress, the elastic draw string is meant to be worn mid waist, but I pulled it up over my bump, and it worked like a charm!  
I think the back is my favorite part. 
Because I pulled the dress up higher than usual, I didn't need to hem it either! It was the perfect length for embellished flat sandals. If you're pregs like me, try it - it totally works. I love that I can keep this beauty post pregnancy and wear the hell out of it with my highest wedges later. (How I miss you, wedges...)
I also discovered the easiest way to do this tiny knot bun, when I just didn't have the energy to wash and set my hair. (We were after all, on vacation!)
1. Spray a bit of dry shampoo 2. Lift the roots with fingers 3. Secure hair half up with a mini claw clip (like these here4. Wrap a piece of hair around the clip to hide it 5. Secure with bobby pin 
Dinner at Fig (yum!) and that one-on-one hubs time I'd been longing for, made for the perfect evening... 
Now if only we could go back!
