A Sunday Classic

Monday, April 12, 2010
Yesterday was a beeaaauutiful day in Salt Lake City!! One of those days where you can't stand being cooped up inside. I'm just hoping this weather stays until we move so that we'll leave with a good impression of Utah.

I bought this dress a while ago on ebay but never knew how to wear it...I know! An LBD is probably the easiest thing to wear. But it was so simple for me that I was dumbfounded. The classic pearls and red lips always does the trick!
