Earlier this week I attended a “Mommy” event, which I so rarely do. However, when Nicole Feliciano from Mom Trends not only invited me to her Trendy Travel Time event, but then asked me to wear a London Times dress of my choice, how could I say no? Besides, I have a couple of trips planned with my family this summer and could always stand to learn a few more things when it comes to traveling with my ‘men.’
When I went to put on the dress I chose I felt it came up a little too high on the neckline for me. Since I am rather ahem, large in the chest area, I prefer a v-neck or scoop neck in my tops. I then noticed the exposed gold-tone zipper in the back and got the crazy idea to try it on backwards. Carol has rubbed off on me after nearly 9 years working together! Would it work? Luckily it did! Phew. I liked the dress much better now. So I tossed on my trusty cashmere throw and belted it with a major belt with gold hardwear and I was off!
Thankfully the sponsors from London Times appreciated my resourcefulness and I actually won a gift certificate from Home Away! I rarely win anything so another trip for my family was much appreciated and frankly…needed!
What I’m Wearing:
Dress: London Times Garden Print Fit and Flare, $78
