weekend recap: the frock i rocked

 this past weekend turned out to be much more laid back than i had anticipated. saturday and sunday were spent doing chores around the house and finishing seasons 1 and 2 of the wire. the highlight though was my great friday date night with the hubby! SB: it was suggested that since i get to be "the dress junkie", i should give D a creative name as well...any suggestions? let me know!

dress: express; jewelry: kenneth cole, the limited; shoes: DVF
so back to date night, we attended the Ledisi, Chrisette Michelle and Eric Benet concert at Pier 6. I was extremely excited about Ledisi and Chrissette and only so so about Eric B. Unfortunately we missed Chrisette's performance but Ledisi definitely made up for it. she was an amazing and extremely entertaining performer, so much energy and spunk...and her voice is just bigger than life. despite still being about 97 degrees at 9 pm at night we forgot all about the sweat dripping from us and had a really great time. after the concert we had dinner at one of our favorite spots Talara. Lucky for us we just missed the crazy storm and were able to wait out the rain until it was safe to go home.

As you can see from the pic my hair was a wreck after the heat and rain. I did however adore my shoes that I scored on gilt group last week and my dress that turned out to be more of a mustard color than the yellow it seemed to be online. i think next time i would like to play with up with another color, maybe ditch the earth tones and do a purple belt? we shall see!

Cute dress. I'm going to see Eric B and Ledisi on Thursday. I saw Ledisi last year and she was awesome so I know it will be good. I haven't seen Eric B before but I am a fan so looking forward to the concert. Sounds like a good time.
