Whew! What a weekend. I headed out last Thursday night to spend a couple nights up in Silver Bay, NY on Lake George. Boy, Oh Boy is it beautiful up there. So many mountains and it’s such a beautiful part of the lake. I am a total lake girl. I think it is the Ontario girl in me, but I would choose lake over ocean any day. The smell, the air, the breeze, the sounds, Ahhh so refreshing to your soul.

After church on Sunday we headed over to the “Pig Out” in Troy. haha. Just what this vegetarian girl loves, a bbq competition. There was pulled pork as far as the eye could see. We didn’t get anything other than a smoothie, but I will admit it did smell good. This is the outfit I had on as we walked around. People just loved this dress yesterday. I can’t blame them. I am in love with it as well. I had like 6 people tell me how pretty the dress was. I added a vintage slip under it so a little bit of the pleated lace would show through. It’s the right mix and nautical, feminine and comfort all rolled into one dress.

  1. The lace detailing on this dress is lovely! Love the shoes you paired with it. 🙂

  2. Aw, I love your dress and that you were in the Capital Region! I live in Albany and if you’re looking for vegetarian food the next time you’re here, go to Lil Buddha Tea on Lark Street in Albany….the menu is to die for and the owners are so nice!

  3. Love those shoes

  4. I’m in love with the dress too! All the little details on it are so pretty!

  12. gorgeous. I love that you added the slip. It’s perfect!

  13. Isn’t it silly how the thought of eating meat can be icky but it can just smell so yummy sometimes haha. My non-vegetarian buddies don’t always understand this. Also, it’s no wonder you got so many compliments on that dress, it is BEAUTIFUL and the slip makes it even more so!

  18. I’ve definitely been the vegetarian-at-a-barbeque before! But even now, I think it smells delicious. 😛

  19. Such a lovely dress and the slip underneath was such a great touch! I am a Lake George girl myself and spent my summers in Bolton Landing. There’s just something about the lake and mountain setting that makes me feel at peace.

  21. I would have added to the list of folks complimenting your dress–it looks adorable on you! I love how you added the slip…it just made it look perfect 🙂 I’ve never been to that corner of the country, but it sounds heavenly! Hope to see you in person at the swap at the end of July! xoxo {av}
