I was very indecisive about what to wear to the gallery opening because I haven't had the chance to wear something fancy in a long time. I decided to go comfortable, semi-casual, but still pretty. The star of the show is that statement necklace from Anthropologie, which was a long-ago gift from Robert. (The flowered scarf in my hair is thrifted.)
The gallery opening was great fun. There was tons of gorgeous art and even more exciting for me, lots and lots of old friends. The gallery is in the town where I was a reporter for eight years. I was also heavily involved in community theater and just up-in the arts community. It was nice to see everyone, and it makes me wonder if I want to get up-in the arts community in our current town. When we first moved here, I loved the anonymity I now had. (In my former home, I wrote a column with my face plastered on it and strangers literally stopped me on the street to comment on it, which was both awesome and unnerving.)
But now, I go back to my old home and immediately feel at home because I know everyone. Oh well, it's only 40 minutes away. Maybe I just need to go back more! Also: I was really excited to have a chance to wear heels. These wedges are super cute and super comfortable.
