Oranges

TT and I have had a very busy week!  Between finals, work, studying, and all the extra surprises life throws at you, it's been a bit of a hectic week.  Blogging was shoved (sadly) to the end of my to-do list, which is sad because I love it.  Saturday night we met up with TT's family downtown for some fun family time around Temple Square and the Salt Lake Temple, and then dinner at Cowboy Grub.  We were celebrating TT's grandpa's 80th...  Happy Birthday Marloe!
This last week we lost a glimpse of sunshine in our lives.  My sweet, beautiful, funny, fun, and very special Aunt Amy passed away very unexpectedly.  I loved her so much, and she had so much love for everyone she met and whose lives she was apart of.  She had her own struggles in life, but I am so happy to know she is at peace now.  Losing someone so close to me has helped me realize how important it is to show the ones you love how much you care every chance you get.  I love you Amy.  I'm so grateful we had this lunch date just a few short weeks ago.  
What I'm Wearing:
Dress: J.Crew
Sweater: J. Crew
Belt: Anthropologie (seen here)
Shoes: Old Navy (thanks Elaine :)

On a lighter note, TT told me he doesn't really like "chunky" belts.  I know this from another time I wore a rather large red leather belt, which truly was adorable with a navy blue dress.  He doesn't have many requests with my wardrobe, but I have been reminded he doesn't love big belts.  I can kind of see where he's coming from, if worn incorrectly large belts can be a true eye sore.  Maybe I'm wearing mine wrong and just don't know.  If I am, please don't tell me.
Downtown Salt Lake is definitely in bloom!

I don't think you are wearing the belt wrong at all. It looks cute. Sometimes guys just don't understand ;)

The belt looks perfect on you - sometimes guys don't understand girls clothing so if you love it, keep wearing it! Thats a lovely dress btw :)

So sorry to hear about your aunt.

I love orange and it looks fabulous with the navy and the wide belt. I agree that sometimes guys don't understand fashion for women. My husband doesn't like cropped pants, but I still wear them and he doesn't complain (much).

It is always hard to lose a loved one, but it reminds you to cherish those you still have.
I wish you well.

Hi, sorry to hear the sad news about your aunt. I've been in Madrid the past few days visiting a friend I hadn't seen in 5 years. She has had a lot of sadness in her life since we last met - she's lost her dad and brother to cancer. Hearing news like this makes me so grateful for the family and friends in my life and reminds me to cherish the time we have with our loved ones.

so no, you did wear the belt right. maybe it's just TTs preference.hehe. my bf doesn't like me wearing maxi dresses to work...which i don't understand..and he can't explain either.LOL.

Sorry to hear about your aunty.

Mr D's favourite colour is orange, it may have something to do with his motorbike being orange... actually, I'm pretty sure it's to do with that!
