Wow, am I glad to (see) you!! I tried to get this post up last night and my site was down for about 15 hours so thanks for your help and understanding, especially since things have been a little slow the last week while I was enjoying time with my family in the mountains. Every time I sat down to write a post all I could think was: I need to be outside with Stanley breathing the fresh air, soaking in every minute with my people, and enjoying the mountains. And the 8 year old in me just could not sit still longer than 5 minutes to get a post out. But HIIIIIII, I am back!! I missed you all and can't wait to share more about my trip later this week.
Before heading to Aspen I spent the day with two of my favorite blog friends - Lacey, who you all know by now, and Ali, one of the lovely Chicago ladies Lacey and I met on our trip to Mexico last spring. I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again (a million times) I am so thankful for all of the people that blogging has brought into my life. First of all, all of you! And the wonderful friends that I wouldn't have met otherwise.
We partnered with Garbarini, one of the oldest, high end boutiques in Denver to share some dresses that are perfect for this awkward time of year... when it is too warm for fall clothes, but their is a hint of the season turning.

I'll be the first to say it, I was not "wow'ed" by my dress when I first saw it on the hanger. You probably know by now, that I am drawn to bright colors and pretty patterns. However, once I put this dress on I changed my tune... I love the feminine fit and flare and the ladylike lace trim and the fabric is perfect for these transition months. My exact dress is available at Garbarini, but I also love this $37 option and this one too!
Ali and Lacey are also wearing dresses from the same designer. I love the patterns, and flowy - lightweight fabric of both of their dresses. They would be perfect layered with this $98 leather jacket as the days cool off, and great simply paired with a pair of fun earrings (I like these!, these and these) until then!
