We moved this weekend...and it felt like a fire drill.  It was hot, it involved a mass evacuation, and it was chaos...but we did it!  We're completely moved into our new apartment AND we're about 95% unpacked!  We're still living in Gold Coast but we moved into a brand new building that's closer to both mine and Patrick's work.  I will be sure to share photos of the place once it's totally put together.

My parents came downtown on Sunday to see the new place and help with some furniture assembly.  It wasn't long before we needed a break and went out for Mother's Day brunch.  I was anxious to wear this embroidered dress again (I wore it as a top last weekend for the Derby - I just tucked into my jeans!  Pictured here); it was perfect for both occasions.

Hope you had a great weekend!  Thanks for reading!

  1. So cute! Glad you had a successful move - love the idea of this dress doing double-duty as a top, too!
