Eat Pray Wear Love: So Presidential

So Presidential

If you follow me on instagram you may be wondering why the heck I was off to see Laura Bush {aka The Former First Lady!} the other night. 

Saturday night Bran and I  attended a fundraising gala for a local Christian school and Laura Bush happened to be the keynote speaker. The event was held at The Broadmoor so it was amazing, per usual! {The Broadmoor never disappoints!} Mrs. Bush gave a heartfelt and touching speech on education, after updating us on life after The White House. It was certainly a night I will never forget. 

The dress code for the event was "business casual" and I knew this blue dress would be perfect. I decided to pair it with my new SS shoes, and went with this Jacket from Tarjay to blend the colors together. Besides, we all know they keep these types of events F R E E Z I N G, so a jacket proved to be a great idea! I know I've got the whole "red, white, and blue" thing going on, but I just couldn't help myself! I mean, I was in the presence of a former First Lady!

  6. I bet Laura is a great speaker! Great outfit choice- very patriotic and appropriate for meeting a former first lady! And yes, why do they always run the A/C at -20 indoors? Thanks for linking up to Manic Monday!
