Marigolden Hour

June 13, 2023

You may remember my marigold slip dress. The one I had a dream about? Well originally when I first started dreaming about this dress in real life there was only one in mind for me.

This one. By Silk Laundry. I say clothes fall into my lap and this dress did. It was one of the many items I had on my RealReal wait list and it went back in stock. Since I already had a yellow slip dress I was on the fence, but after a text to my best friend Victoria (who always encourages me to live my life and buy the damn dress) it was a done deal.

I don't know if I have words for this silk dress. I just read a book on natural fibers and I'm still shook thinking that silk is drawn from a cocoon, glistens like the night sky, and flows like water. This dress is literally a dream from a dream and in terms of price too. I paid $50 vs $270!

I literally cannot get this idea out of my head of pairing this dress with Bottega Veneta Jodie in gold, although I will probably settle on a vintage clutch perhaps. I'd gratefully take any of these accessories Purseblog compiled.

My friend Brenna and I shot these pictures underneath a waning gibbous outside of my favorite coffee shops in Kansas City, Café Corazón. If you haven't been you must try a café bombón, and in the summertime they have a mojito latte that I come alive for. Peep my friend Bryn's TikTok about it!

I've felt rather unlucky these past couple of years, but finding pieces like these remind me that I've still got some luck and the hidden gems will find me when I'm ready, and maybe life has some hidden gems in store for me too? 

Summer is here, well officially on the 21, but I am going to call it now. I'm going to leave you with one of my favorite lines from the Great Gatsby (because who would I be if I didn't?), "And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

Let's begin over again, shall we?

As always I want to thank my lovely, talent and effervescent friend Brenna for these lovely pictures.
