Better than late than never should be my new blog mantra. These pics were taken over Memorial Day weekend, which was two weeks ago.
Our family went to Colonial Williamsburg, which I JUST LOVE, being an American History teacher and all...but this time we just said "no" to the tickets. For one thing, everybody and their brother decided to descend on the Historic Triangle of Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg that weekend. Ugh...crowds...heat...humidity. We only live 2 or so hours away, if we are that desperate to see the inside of the buildings (some of which I have seen upwards of 20 times), then so be it, but we are not that desperate. Two...Rex is two. 'Nuff said.
So instead we walked around, enjoyed each other's company, ate yummy food, and I even got a few spa services (HEAVEN)!
So without further ado, my clothing for the first day of the trip (you actually saw the second day's outfit in this post...and props to Kater who figured out where we were):
Here is the polyvore (yes, that's right, it is a boy's tee--I bought it in a size 12)!
Here is the outfit on me. Very exciting, I'm sure. I love soft-shell crabs...they are my fave summer food...mmm...fried up and in a sandwich...especially from the Crab Claw. Get thee to the Crab Claw if you have never been there...it is AWESOME!
Here is the Melody dress (from Spring 2009--J. Crew) on me. I bought it in an 8, and I was SO worried it would be too small. I actually stressed about this for a few days. I kind of felt stupid when I discovered that it fit really well! Phew. ;)
We had been at dinner, so if you notice any wrinkling, it is from that. I will say the dress held up really well! Also, I am holding up well because I had a yummy adult drink and I had just finished my spa services...
The sandals are the Lucia ones you saw in the previous picture. They are from what, 2007? Maybe 2006? I don't remember, but I do know I wear them A LOT during the summer. I wish J. Crew would put more out in this style (are you reading this, J. Crew?)...
BTW, word to the wise, avoid strolling minstrels if your kid is two. Rex was COMPLETELY freaked out by the nice singing man at the King's Arm Tavern that evening. I think that man probably has a complex now because of my kid. :)
You all have a great day...hopefully everybody's weather is good...it's pretty nice here in NOVA!
