This weekend was so much fun! My family came over for lunch on Saturday for a little send off party for my brother. He’s moving to New York this month to attend Columbia University and we could not be more proud. I spent all Friday night and Saturday getting the house ready (i.e. cleaning and setting up.) When I know people are coming over I love getting everything ready. Call me crazy, but I cannot help it. Maybe it has something to do with being half Persian? My grandmother would always get the house all fancy and cook a huge meal for her guests. I posted a few photos of the set up on my Instagram. Is it strange that I am already looking forward to Thanksgiving when I get to have my family come over again? Or Christmas when I get to put up a gigantic tree?! LOL, I am a strange one I know.
I rarely show you guys what I wear to my full-time office job. Maybe that is because when the opportunity arises to shoot fun looks for the blog the last thing I think about is photographing work looks. But every once in a while I will make sure to post a wear-to-work look. This particular work outfit is a summer favorite. This blue dress fits me just right and the blue is absolutely stunning. It’s a nice light weight fabric for those hot summer days. This is also the dress that I wore for the photos we shot in the hotel room in Vancouver.
Let me know if you would like to see more of my wear to work looks. Tweet me, comment on my Instagram or at the end of this blog post, or email me: Laura@LauraLily.com. I am happy to show you the kinds of outfits, tutorials and home tours want to see.
P.S. I came to the realization that Fashion Week is only NINE DAYS AWAY!!! OMG. I feel like I’m going to turn around and be on a plane. Better start packing!
