Such is the case with this pink and red dress I wore to last week's Bloom Bash Workshop, set in the jaw-dropping Lange Farms. The venue was straight out of Gone with the Wind, with Spanish moss dripping from 100-year old trees, plantation-style architecture, wrap-around porches, and an abundance of sweet tea. It's no wonder we were all so inspired!
I hope to share more of the gorgeous workshop with you soon, but I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy! I'll just think about that tomorrow. ;) #seewhatIdidthere #scarlettoharacalled
When I spotted this dress online, I knew it was perfect for my presentation at the workshop...and crossed my fingers it was just as perfect in person (especially since it's more than I'd normally spend!). Turns out, it was even better!
My favorite color combination, flattering neckline, unexpected criss-cross back, and pockets!! If I were a dress, I'd be this dress.
What is it about pockets?! I think they should be a requirement for every dress and skirt. I don't know what I love more...the dress, or the gorgeous location!
I wanted to call this post, 'Raspberry Beret,' in honor of Prince...but seeing as how I'm not actually wearing a hat, I thought that might throw you a bit. Plus, Prince was the single most influential artist and musician in Mr. SP's life, so his death is still pretty raw over here. (Mr. SP was a professional musician before we had kids.) But you're welcome for getting that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. ;)
What makes a dress perfect for you? Here's a few similar options I adore, as well...and don't forget, use code SUGARPLUM for 20% off my darling pom-pom clutch this week!
Thanks to my darling friend, Jen, for traipsing all over the farm to take my picture!
