Any mention of Labor Day weekend, and I’ve got Tim McGraw stuck in my head. But really, I’m not mad at all.

This year, I have very mixed feelings about this holiday. A day off work? Wonderful. The weekend before I start my new project (in Houston!)? Elated. B-Ry’s “bros” coming to visit for the first time? Could not be happier. But it’s also the last weekend that my best friend, Alisdair, is going to be in Texas. He’s moving back to Scotland (where we became best friends 23 years ago!). It’ll be a weekend filled with laughter, joy, and tears. I guarantee there will be a ton of photo-opp moments, meaning I’ve got to be well prepared with my wardrobe. What to wear, what to wear? I’ve put together my ideal Labor Day celebration outfit below. Only half-way into assembling it did I realize it’s pink and gold. Clearly obsessed (see here).

1) J Crew Pink Bubble necklace, 2) Mona dress at Anthropologie (on sale!), 3) Jimmy Choo sunglasses, 4) Tory Burch Robinson Crossbody bag, 5) Essie Chastity, 6) Essie Golden Nuggets, 7) Jimmy Choo Anouk Suede Pumps (obsessed!), 8, Kate Spade Strike Your Fancy Idiom bracelet, 9) Baublebar Pink Twist Cuff

Come to think of it, this point was (subconsciously) very inspired by Rachel of Pink Peonies. I love her style so much!


  1. You won’t be surprised to know that I have held that purse several times. I like it, but it doesn’t feel like it should be expensive – but it is. Love the pink heels ๐Ÿ™‚
