fire it up

This was my July 4th outfit. Since it was hot as Hades, I wore the most ventilated, yet still adult party-appropriate dress I own. I’ve worn it for about a zillion weddings.

Usually, you couldn’t pay me enough money to brave the crowds on the Mall to see the fireworks, but B and I were lucky enough to be invited to a party with the most incredible view, so who am I to say no?

No room for the big camera, so we brought along the little Powershot. I was actually quite impressed with the nighttime photos.

This 102 degree weather is insane! I just want to wear a swimsuit at all times. Unfortunately, that's not really work appropriate.

Wow that dress is so incredible. The print is beautiful. Looks like you had an amazing time, from what I can see of the view.

I actually don't know how to get good night time photos with my big camera, only my tiny point and shoot.

Thought process on seeing this:
1. Is that Missoni? It's cute?
2. I want a Missoni!
3. When can I get a Missoni!

Lovely as always dear!

I can't believe you got such good fireworks pictures with your point and shoot! I took about a billion pictures of our fireworks display and only got one that was halfway decent!
