Outfit: Retro Orange

Naina- J.Crew cecilia dress, Burberry tote, Stuart Weitzman platform suede pumps, Chanel sunglasses, bangles-India, green quartx and mixed chain earrings c/o Ayana Designs

Ariyana-Baby Lulu dress, Gap jellies

For Father’s Day we joined our friends for dinner al fresco at Ristorante Fiore in the North End, an Italian section of Boston full of amazing restaurants, pizzeria’s, and bakery’s. And it was the perfect sunny and warm day to wear my new orange J.Crew sundress.  I tried on this dress in white and loved it but then I saw this bright orange color on the rack and couldn’t decide between the two.  I admit it was tempting to buy the dress in both colors but in the end I opted for the brighter and bold colored dress.

Also I am excited my sister just moved to Boston yesterday. This is the first time in over 10 years that we will be living in the same city! We hoped to stop by her new place after dinner but Ariyana was so exhausted from the day she fell asleep 5 minutes after we got in the car (but of course she stayed awake long enough to enjoy delicious Italian cookies we picked up along the way).

DAAAyum!! Looking good, girl! Love the colour on you – I would have picked orange too! Sounds like you had a wonderful Father's Day. You're gonna have to give me a list of all the best restos to go to! Awesome that your sis has moved, too! I'm excited to be close to my sister and her family when we move to Boston, too!

You look amazing! Wish I looked that good in orange!

About the ESL/ENL class – I'm thinking about getting my license to teacher ENL students (English as a new language). These are students that either come from another country, or come from a household where another language is spoken. This is my first class, but I'm finding it very interesting and think I'm going to continue on with the program…..
