I’m having a hard time getting back in the saddle after a weekend full of celebrations — first, on Saturday, a thoroughly Vo’ Dilan wedding, complete with a clambake and music by Steve Smith and The Nakeds (a fine time was had by ALL); then, on Monday, a whole day full of July 4th celebrations, including the Bristol, RI parade.

In the meantime, lookit! Here’s what I wore to the wedding. I was determined to Shop in My Closet, and succeeded with the dress and cardigan. I did splash out for new sandals (which I can wear again and again), a “reticule,” and pearls. The ironic part? Hot pink gerbera daisies were the bride’s color/flower of choice. I couldn’t have done better if I’d tried!

Mr. Pants: You looked lovely, with your orange juice and all. Rubi: That's a Mount Gay and tonic.
