Sunny Days and The Little Black Maxi

Do you know that feeling when you've had such an incredible night or even week of rest? It’s the sort of savvy slumber that people might call, sleeping like a baby. Well, that lovely moment happened for both, me and the blog. But, it does feel good to be back!

Between having friends in town and a few family (FIFA14) festivities it has been a very long week and weekend. I also managed to try out some new recipes that I had saved, and table style settings (there’s a post possibly coming up sometime soon) for inspiring concepts.

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw a snapshot of one of the new wall stencils that I recently bought. It was such a pleasing way to liven up the art studio—swapping out two hanging photo frames for the fresh wall art gave the space the style enhancement that was needed. 
But, on a day when I wasn't being a culinary enthusiast or an interior crafting aficionada I decided to wear this dress for our night out. A simple dinner date night on a summer evening it was, and I thought it was the perfect combination, given the two side slits on the dress. I deemed it to be more of an upgraded LBD for summer, and one that would be for diverse occasions.

What did you do this past weekend?

    What a glamorous and sexy look! That sheer maxi is gorgeous! I love the floatiness of the skirt and the way it shows a hint of leg. I'm glad to see there are some of us who still dress up for dinner.
