This weekend brought us upstate for our friends' wedding so we took advantage of the location and spent Sunday morning in Woodstock. I've been there once before, years ago with Kaitlin, and found my favorite rose ring at a vendor set up off of the parking lot. Since then I always keep an eye out on little stands like that but have yet to find anything quite as special again. We had an early lunch and spent a few hours wandering around town, stopping in a few stores and in stereotypical manhattanite fashion, peeked in an antique shop. We did find something there, an antique fire extinguisher circa 1917 that is currently sitting in front of the fire place. The more we decorate, the more concerned I am that our guests will leave convinced they'd fallen down a rabbit hole and landed in another century. 

I have been doing my best not to wear this skirt every single day, it's certainly a challenge. I love the embroidery and sheer overlay. It's also really lightweight so it's perfect for walking around on hot days like yesterday. I paired it with a blue and white striped shirt, kind of similar to the last time I wore this skirt on the blog. Sometimes you've just got to stick with what works. I did change things up a bit though with a simple clutch that I used for the wedding as well and strappy sandals. 

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, thank you so much for reading!

    That skirt is so gorgeous and I really love it with the classic button-down. It's such a chic look, kind of Parisian like "I didn't even try but I look put together" aka the best combo ever ;)
