OFF THE SHOULDER RUFFLED SUNDRESS



I love a good sundress, plain and simple. My personal style tends to be pretty casual so when it starts to get warmer here in the city I reach for easy dresses that you can throw on and go while still looking put together. I found this one last year (on sale!) at Club Monaco and scooped it right up. From then on it was my go-to for dinner dates and pretty much everything else. I would even toss it on to walk to the post office on my days off to get more stamps for our save the dates, wedding invites, etc. when we were in high wedding planning mode. Throughout the course of the season I mixed it up with belts and other accessories to keep things interesting and long cardigans on cooler nights and plan on doing the same again this summer. Unfortunately, this dress isn't available any longer BUT I've linked a bunch of really great, affordable, and nearly identical options below!

Little White Dress Roundup

I'm always a fan of a good little white dress. This was especially the case for me last year. Pre-wedding me was all about white dresses. The only problem was I had so much trouble finding a specific dress. My goal was to find and wear the perfect one for our engagement photos, but I struggled to find a dress that was simple, elegant, and timeless at a reasonable price point. I scoured every last shop and purchased a few options, but ultimately ended up wearing my favorite blue maxi for the shoot. Maybe it's because I was looking for something too specific that I couldn't find what I was looking for, or maybe it was because I was a season away from the perfect dress - it hadn't been made yet. But, this year I seem to be finding pretty LWDs everywhere I look. So, I've rounded up a few of my favorites at different price points incase you find yourself in a similar boat, or if you just love a good little white dress too!

Hello, Again

Hi friends, 

It's been a long time. I mean a loooong time since the last post. A lot has happened and changed since then, but that's life, isn't it? 

I have decided after much back and forth and a few Instagram polls to brush the dust off this old thing and start writing/blogging/sharing again - at least in a limited capacity for now. A few posts here and there. I'd love to share some of our wedding photos and the stories behind them, as well as create a more shop-able space for my Instagram feed. 

My reasons for calling it quits were fairly simple. Maintaining the blog had become much more of a chore than something I enjoyed doing, so far from where I had started. I felt frustrated and stuck so I took a break, as one should at that point. Since then there have been a lot of moments where I missed blogging and having a space to share parts of myself, new things I have discovered (like my new/current skincare routine which has completely transformed my skin!), and more than one photo of the same place or thing. Instagram is wonderful and I obviously love it, but let's be honest, no one wants to read the really long caption to a pretty picture or see a different angle of the same shot in your next post. It's a tough crowd. But a blog, a blog post can be whatever you want it to be and that's why I've decided to revive Prosecco in the Park, and why I can't promise that it will be your typical "life + style" site. I could say that this will be a beautiful, carefully curated list of things I love (which I fully hope it will be), but I refuse to add the pressure that comes along with such lofty aspirations. Instead, the plan is to simply share what feels right, when it feels right to create a more open space.

I truly hope you will follow along.

Let's give this a try, shall we?
