I always forget to take pictures on weekends. On weekdays, we leave the house in the AM, my husband grabs his camera, drops me off at the Metro, drives home and puts the camera back on the top of the tallest bookcase in the house (far away from Emerson’s grabby hands). On weekends… we chill.

So this weekend when I went to our friends’ daughter’s first birthday I decided after a couple Miller Lites to take a MySpace-worthy (or maybe Wardrobe Oxygen circa 2006-worthy) photo of my outfit!

It was hot as heck this weekend, and one of my new Banana Republic Outlet sundresses came in handy. I swear, my life has completely transformed by owning a comfortable strapless bra – I wouldn’t have even glanced at this dress on the rack before, and now I have it in this olive color and a purple/black/cobalt print. In fact, all weekend I wore strapless sundresses thanks to my lovely lovely new bra!

Anyway, getting all AW but here’s some more pics from Saturday:

My little book lover (taken just before I had to wake her for the party).  She yanked all these books into bed with her during her nap. It's fun to listen to her “read” them aloud as she falls asleep

But of course the most stylish two-year olds this summer are donning oversized sunhat and Punky Brewster-esque bathing suits

My child loves cupcakes more than she does me and my camera

But who can blame her with cupcakes that look like this?  And let me tell you, they tasted as good as they looked!  My friend A is creative culinary genius!

    Allie, you encouraged me to get a good, comfortable strapless bra.  The one I bought is a minimizer.  I swear, I think I doubled my wardrobe just by things that I can now wear and things that I have bought that I would never have worn before.  I love wearing cute summer dresses now!  Love the dress.

    I have to say Allie, you look gorgeous. All your hard work is definitely paying off.

    You look so tiny!  Love the dress!  E and her books makes me smile… gotta love us bookworms!

    You look fantastic in that dress! The simple necklace is perfect with it.

    My daughter loves cupcakes more than me too. I’m okay being second to a cupcake.

    I love how Emerson is always accessorized!  Girlfriend knows how to rock a necklace 😀

    Thanks Lori!

    I know my sister did a DIY thing like B Jones’ behind her door with various
    hooks and it looks fantastic and keeps all her accessories tidy. Your
    solution is like a work of art!
