Play Date

Last week, Theo and I decided to revisit Long Beach, the area where we stayed when the idea to move to California first hatched....

It had been very shortly after our wedding and, feeling a bit reminiscent and romantic, we took the day to eat at one of our favorite diners, 
play our favorite arcade game on the boardwalk and catch up with one another.


I designed a simple white tank dress the night before just for the occasion, actually.  I wanted something fitted, comfy, casual but (gasp) NOT jersey.  Jersey and double knit is my go-to fabiric.  But this fabric I came across is luscious - I wish you could feel it!  It's thick so I didn't have the need for a bra, but it was also weighted perfectly for a great drape.  

Anyway, I liked it.

As some of you already know, I quite fancy wearing white - especially on special occasions.  And that day was really a special one.  
So happy I could whip up that LWD in time because Theo loved it!  Hope you like it too :)

  1. I love the cut of the dress and the shoes are gorgeous. I also like the fact you wore your hair up it gave you a nice clean line with the dress.

    Everything looks just lovely with a cool icecream cone:)

  5. Gorgeous dress! Please tell me you will sell some of your designs soon? (please please). I love how comfortable, yet sophisticated the dress looks on you. I also love your puff :)
    My hubby and I have a similar story to yours and Theo's. Our first leg of our honeymoon was in San Fran and we happened upon a pizza place in the Outer Sunset. 2 years later we moved to the Bay Area and whenever we feel nostalgic we'll take the drive to our little pizza place.
