Happy Friday! Is everyone catching the fall spirit? I know I am, but I want it to get cooler in Dallas. Still in the upper 80’s, so that means sweaters are still in the drawers! I am, however, wearing a sweater today. I am in Sun Valley, Idaho for my goddaughter’s wedding and it is freezing! I’m so excited to be here because I have never visited before and have heard how gorgeous it is. So far, it is not disappointing! The trees are full of gold leaves and are beautiful! I am attending the bridesmaid’s luncheon today, rehearsal dinner and event afterward, then the wedding tomorrow.
Can you believe it is supposed to snow here tomorrow? Guess who didn’t pack a heavy coat? Packing is so hard for me when there are several events scheduled. I threw in this flirty LBD from Bloomingdales as a contender to wear to the bridesmaid’s luncheon.
I bought this Donna Karan dress from Bloomingdales recently because I was in need of a new LBD. A little black dress (or two) is just what your closet needs for those times when you need them. I remember my mom telling me when I was in college to have at least one black dress in my closet because you can wear them to so many functions. Do you know the times I have needed one, I didn’t have it! I try to add one every year or so now. You can have too many black dresses, said no one ever!!!
Bloomingdales has been a go-to for me lately. It’s one of my favorite places to shop when I am in New York because they have everything I am looking for or don’t need and think I do! Back to my dress. I loved the gold working zipper in the front and the high-low hem (different from any other LBD I have). This dress is super easy and comfortable. Of course, I probably sound like a broken record because I say it all of the time, but I get cold, so this adorable jacket was ordered too. Y’all would have to be living under a rock not to know how big animal prints are right now. I have so much leopard, but the snake situation was not anywhere to be found in my closet. I love this velvet jacket!
I’m so glad I had this post scheduled for today, because as luck would have it, Bloomingdales is having their Friends and Family sale right now! That means 25% off on most everything!!! I love shopping when things are on sale! There are so many things in my cart right now, but I can’t get them all. A few things I am craving, are this overlap blazer, this camo cashmere sweater, and this cashmere cocoon cardigan.
I just love cashmere, because it’s not scratchy and I break out in a rash with wool. Getting cashmere on sale is awesome! Also, I need a puffer coat. Living in Dallas, we don’t need them often but it’s like the LBD, you probably need one. There are so many I want, but I have narrowed it to these two here and here. Okay, one more, because this blue!!!!! And, there is this pair of booties that look very similar to an expensive pair, but are so affordable! I could spend half a day looking at the Bloomingdales website!
LBD with Bloomingdales
I’m in Sun Valley with one of my besties that has been in my life for thirty-three years. We are already having so much fun together! I’ve had such a busy couple of months that girl time is precisely what I need! I have picked out some of my favorite LBD’s below from Bloomingdales, all at different price ranges. I hope you have a great day and weekend! As always, thank you so much for reading! xx
