Yesterday Seth started school- he was fine, but I sat crying in my car after I dropped him off. I don't know exactly what did it, but at some point it finally dawned on me that my little guy is growing up. Seth has been in daycare since he was about 4 months old so I just assumed that I was already used to the idea of him being in a school setting- very wrong. I looked at his face as he sat at his table with his new classmates and just realized that this would never happen again. Unless a strongly persistent stork breaks into our home, this is the first and last 'first day of school'. I asked Seth when I picked him up in the afternoon how his day went, and his response as simply: "Great!"

Seth took one look at my outfit today and asked me if I was going to work or a picnic. Once I was able to stop laughing, I had to agree that I did look like I was all set to go to a picnic- from the bright green Eloquii crop pants to my Lane Bryant boyfriend shirt. By the time you get to my Kate Spade basket handbag, it's pretty easy to imagine that I have a few sandwiches stashed in them. This is all part of my casual Friday 2.0 series- this one is perfect for the summer without looking sloppy.

I am so madly in love with my Fendi collection. My last purchase was the white Boston bag on the end and I can't wait to carry it. Of course there's my marrone B Bag, a wine Fendissime flat bag, a bauletto and my controversial vintage handbag (final verdict: it's authentic).
I really love the class of Fendi without the overt showiness of Louis Vuitton. I am particularly attracted to the specific bags in my collection: some are very formal, some are everyday ready and some are casual. All in all, I think I've made some great, sensible selections.

My version was significantly less glamorous but did the job of capturing the detail in the skirt as well as giving you a better look at my bag and shoes:

This outfit is perfect for work, but also serves well if you've been invited for a tea party :).

I am a bit sad these days when I go through my Eloquii jackets- no one will ever make such perfect pieces!

Usually when people reply to a compliment with "This old thing?" it's meant to be a modest reply, however, in my case today it was totally honest. This 'old thing' was hiding in the back of my closet, totally forgotten. It's a Lane Bryant sundress that I wore incessantly years ago when I purchased it, but eventually tired of. It's hard to tell from the photo but it has a lovely flounce in the hem so it's very ladylike and chic. I've paired it with one of my LB sateen jackets and have my Fendissime satchel to tie it all together.
