Wellllllll hello, Monday. It is not-so-lovely to see you.
This tulip-sleeve blouse is just about the cutest top ever. I wore it one day in Disney World (you may have seen it on my Instagram) and it is just so breezy and perfect for hot summer days… like the ones we experienced in Orlando two weekends ago.
Though, I have to say, this skirt is such a better option than full-length white denim for hot days. I roasted at Disney. Don’t make my mistake, y’all. Legs are meant to be bared come summertime!
What I’m Wearing:
Top: Paper Crown (via Rent the Runway) / Skirt: Club Monaco / Purse: Asos (under $20!)
Shoes: similar / Hat: Tuckernuck / Earrings: Kate Spade / Bracelet: Lilly Pulitzer
Bow Ring: similar / Signet Ring: BaubleBar
Enough about my tulip-sleeve blouse (which would be perfect for Memorial Day Weekend – it’s only three weeks away!!). Let’s talk about JFK.
Over the weekend, my parents (and one of our dear friends from Australia!) came to visit me in Dallas. On Saturday night, after a long day of shopping (for the girls – the guys went to the George W. Bush Presidential Museum), the four of us packed up and drove over to Fort Worth to see their newest production – a piece that premiered at the Fort Worth Opera only a few weeks ago – called JFK.
If you know me, you know that I usually hate contemporary operas. They’re typically too electric for my taste – they feature too much dissonance. But I believe in trying everything once, so I said yes when my mother asked me if I wanted to join them for this brand-new contemporary opera. And I’m so glad I did. The piece was magnificent. It was all about John F. Kennedy’s last night of his life: his dreams, his relationship with Jackie, his pain. The best part of the opera was actually a trio featuring Jackie Kennedy and the future Jackie Onassis with Clara Harris. It was beautiful.
And, with that, let’s add a +1 to my 30 Before 30 challenge to see 30 operas before I turn 30! 11 down, 19 to go!
I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful weekend. See you back here tomorrow!
