Concrete Catwalk // Sunflower

August 10, 2012

Mr. Pepper and I ventured upstate to New Paltz, NY this past weekend, and when we spotted this field of sunflowers that just happened to match my silky little Sunday dress, we knew we had to pull over and take full advantage.

Click through to see the full look, complete with the DIY painted heels from earlier this week on S&P-TV, along with my super-lame attempt at hitchhiking on an early-morning country road.

P.S.  You win an extra 100 bonus points if you spotted my “party nail” above… AND I hope you all have a HAPPY Friday! XOXO
