This past weekend was full of celebrations!  We had my mother’s 80th birthday party on Friday night and my stepson’s first communion on Sunday.  It was a hectic week preparing for both events with lots of family coming in to celebrate.  Although these times can be chaotic with so many people running around the house and so much to do, they are full of joy and love and a time to make memories that will last a lifetime.

As you might expect, one of my favorite things to do for a party is pick what I am going to wear.  I bought this dress a couple of weeks ago from a little boutique in Peapack, NJ called the The Red Toad.  I discovered it one day when I was early for work and had some time to kill.   It was a huge steal at 70% off and perfect to wear for the first communion.  SCORE!!  I love the pastel flowers and strategically placed lines that accentuate your figure.  My plan was to wear it with a mint green or lavender blazer but I was short on time and settled for a black one that I had instead.  I think it looked just as pretty especially with the rose gold jewelry which accentuated the soft pastel colors.  I have two more first communion parties coming up within the next two weeks.  Although I would love to wear this again most of the same people will be there.  It’s a perfect excuse for a shopping trip.

  1. Big men watches look great in women wrists. I love this one with its copper tones. Nice peak.
