I wore this ensemble to spend the day with my visiting parents...going out to lunch, exploring a greenhouse, having dinner, & sitting outside a pub with the doggies for after dinner drinks. I wasn't really expecting to like this dress, but I ended up loving it. Since it was a brand I had never tried & had no stretch, I got this in the largest size & it was entirely too big on me. But the colors! I thought the color combination was gorgeous & quite different. The pattern was like an abstract floral painting. I just felt pretty all day.
This is how we drove to the restaurant. Ruger wouldn't let Super Boo sit in the front seat & refused to move...Remi sat on my dad or on top of Ruger. 
So my mom sat in back with S. Boo & I...perched on top of our armrests. And we thought *our* dogs were spoiled. 
 Heritage favorite! Fox Trot & Rosemary's Baby. 
 Oh, the deviled eggs *swoon*
Heritage always has 2 family style meals on their menu & I've seen others order them, but this is the first time I've tried one. It was a pig feast...porchetta, boudin blanc, breaded/fried head cheese, & Alsation pork shoulder on a bed of braised cabbage with the most delicious potato gratin on the side. It was amazing.
After dinner we went to The Malt House, a craft beer tavern in our 'hood. There were quite a few dogs on the patio, so Super Boo walked home to pick up Olive. It was such a gorgeous night out. I can still remember our walk home & the smell of crab apple blossoms & lilacs....mmmmmm. 
It was difficult to photograph, but there is a lovely greek goddess etched into this necklace...I love her. 


  1. What a pretty dress! Those deviled eggs look delicious, and aww, ridiculous doggies! :-)

    1. Thank you! They are amazing. And yay to doggies. *smile*

  2. You are really, really fucking hot. Just saying!

  3. That goddess necklace is incredible!

  4. Your parents must've been so delighted to have you around for dinner, Meshel. Your outfit looks like it brightened up the whole room. Anyway, the food you had that night looks so heavenly. The deviled eggs are such a divine sight, that I'm sure everyone had gone home really satisfied. I hope you get to enjoy more moments like that. All the best! :)
