Happy FRIiiidayyy!!  #FashionFriday

This week has gone by so fast.  I was a little worried that after leaving WLOS I would feel bored, but that has not been the case at all.  So far I’ve maintained a good life work balance and I’m hoping I can make it stick.  While hard at work l have been fostering some new partnerships and fun stuff for Running in a Skirt.  It’s still to early to tell you everything, but it is all good and I can hardly wait to post about it.

More big news: Next week I am going to my first blog conference, the Food Blog Forum in Asheville.  It’s being held at the Biltmore Estate so I am pretty excited to go back to one of my favorite places.  I’m also pretty stoked to meet more bloggers and learn ways improve the recipe and food portion of Running in a Skirt.  I might not stop smiling all weekend!

Without further ado, let’s talk about today’s Fashion Friday post.  This week features a dress many of you asked me about in my Biltmore Gardens with my Dad post. Remember this?


While my Dad and I were at Biltmore he snapped a few more pictures for me.  I love this dress because the detail on the top is incredibly flattering and unique.  It is not over the top in any way and is such a classy dress.  It is a high quality cotton material so it is perfect for many occasions from a baby shower, date night or an afternoon with your Dad.


Since the knot detail is intricate, I went with a simple gold necklace.  This one is actually a long one that I doubled up.  You don’t want to pair a giant statement necklace with this dress because it already has built-in “flare.”


For the shoes I went with a contrasting pop of color.  I like doing a totally different color of shoe with such a simple outfit because it makes it a little more interesting.  You could also do a brown or nude flat with this dress as we head into Fall.

    I love the dress! I have a decent work life balance. It’s a different work life balance. My day job feels like family, and I’m excited to include my family into some of my job “stuff.” (Like next week, the husband is bringing the toddler to campus to participate in some of the welcome back events.) So…it’s just different. 🙂

      That is so nice that your new job is so welcoming of families. I sounds like a whole new world!

    The older I get the more I understand how important my home and family is to me. So my balance between work and he is much better than it was. Have fun at the blogger conference and love the dress!

    I love, love the top of that dress! Plus, I’m a navy freak. I clicked on the link, but it says it’s unavailable. Nooooo!

    Julie, which Macy’s do you go to?

      I go to the one in Greenville, SC. But I also used visit the one near my parents house in Orlando. I recently bought several things online and had excellent luck
