You may or may not have noticed I've been posting a lot less around here lately. I used to be really strict and would pick a schedule and stick with it - if I said I was posting five days a week, you had better bet there were five posts up! But I'm hitting a few compounding factors at the moment. We're hitting our busy period at work gearing up for our big annual conference, which is leaving me with a lot less free time. We're also in that weird place between seasons, where I don't really have anything new or exciting to show you clothes wise because I haven't been wearing anything new. I'm not the kind of blogger that shows outfits I'm not really wearing! And frankly, I've just been feeling a little uninspired. I'm hoping things change as we move into fall - I guess we'll see! Oh, and of course, it doesn't help that there's four hours of Bachelor in Paradise to watch each week ;) Anyone else watching this season? I am very, very amused.

So I said I haven't been wearing anything new - technically this dress is new, but I've been wearing it so much (literally several times a week - ha!) that it doesn't feel like it anymore. It's seriously so comfortable, weirdly flattering for a swing dress, and really versatile. I'm loving it here with this wrap, which makes it still feel summery while ensuring I don't completely freeze in the office. But I've also paired it with longer cardigans, which I think will be so cute when you add in some booties come fall. And I love the idea of it with a blanket scarf for fall too. Like I said, so versatile!

In other news, have I told you Jeff is getting a new little sister? Yep, that's right, his dad is having another kid with his new wife - you might remember they got married earlier this year! We're really excited about the new member of the family, who is supposed to arrive in the next week or two. Not many siblings have 33 years between them!! It's kind of funny to think just how old we'll be when she graduates high school or gets married - the old fogeys!

We went out to dinner with Jeff's dad and extended family a couple of weeks ago, which was really the last hurrah before the baby comes. His dad just moved to the Gold Coast, so we hit up their new favorite restaurant Nico Osteria. I was telling Jeff I'm definitely not mad about it being their go-to - the food is so good!! I had the lobster spaghetti this last time and it was so freaking good. After dinner we went for a little wander through the neighborhood to look at the pretty pretty (multi-million dollar) houses and snapped these pics. Think we'll win the lottery soon so I can move to Gold Coast??
