Happy Monday Y’all! Johnny and I have been on a bit of an East Coast traveling kick lately! Over the weekend, we snuck away to Washington, D.C. to visit the Newseum. Being a TV Journalist, this museum is something I’ve had on my to-do list for years. We spent a few hours there really soaking everything in. One aspect I really appreciate about the Newseum is how it doesn’t just focus on American journalism but also what journalists across the world are doing and facing. Vietnam is one of the six worst countries for jailing journalists, which is no surprise to me but still very very sad.
When it’s hot in the summer, I love a good maxi dress. This floral watercolor maxi dress keeps the sun off my body, which keeps me cool. The colors in this watercolor maxi dress are so romantic and perfect for summer. I almost feel a few degrees cooler just looking at these soothing colors. If you are petite, you’ll love this dress because it’s the perfect length. Absolutely no hem job needed and I’m 5’3. On taller girls, this will be midi length most likely. This watercolor dress has lots of fabric that gathers. You can wear it with the sash or let it flow like I am here. Personally, I like this option better since it moves in the wind and when you walk. However, if you want more shape, feel free to use the sash.
These lilac Christina earrings are the newest addition to my Kendra Scott collection. Last weekend, Johnny and I spent the weekend in Richmond. Short Pump Town Center is a big shopping center, so of course, we had to stop there. I’m a huge Kendra Scott fan, so I wanted to visit the store, even though just a few days ago I was in the New York showroom. We were chatting with the store manager and the lovely sales associates when the store manager generously gave me a yellow bag. I immediately blushed and thanked her for her gracious gift. It wasn’t until we got to the car and were heading back to our hotel I opened the box and saw a pair of earrings I’ve wanted all season. I couldn’t believe it. These are the larger versions of the white earrings I have. Every time I wear these, they make me smile.
