Rooftop cocktails for three

This weekend I got to cross one of my summer goals off my check list, when I joined Meg and Amber for some martinis on the roof of a small restaurant in West Hartford called Elbow Room.

It was the perfect evening to show off this little white cocktail dress that London Times sent me, which I decided to dress down a little by adding wood and leather accessories. 

Even though that morning was grey and rainy, I kept my fingers crossed that the sun would eventually break through and thankfully it did! I was quite happy that Meg and I met Amber in West Hartford at just the perfect time to take photos in that great evening light. And I'm pretty pleased with myself that I got Meg and Amber to take photos with me in such a public setting. We even set up the tripod and attempted to take some posed candid shots.

Why haven't I had more Saturdays this summer like this one?!

oooh...West Hartford Center is a nice place for a photoshoot! Next time you're there, I recommend Treva for drinks/dinner...it doesn't have a rooftop area but you can dine al fresco, and the place is awesome.

Love the white dress, too.

Amber said...

what am I doing in that last group shot? I am such a weirdo.

Ali Hval said...

Oh goodness, what a bunch of dressy ladies you all are!! I'm loving all of your outfits, too. The yellow and the white is fresh like citrus and linen on a summer day, Miss Lyddie! I adore that color combo. <3

And martinis on a roof sounds super fun and fancy. Just don't get too tipsy and fall off. ;)

Alex Elizabeth said...

Wooo you guys look awesome! I love group photos! This white dress has some really cool lazer detailing!

Terri said...

Oh, I love photo #3. Was this before or after the martinis?

Cee said...

I cannot get over how gorgeous these photos are, and stunning all three of you look lined up! Blogger meet-ups are absolutely my favourite part of blogging - you get to meet up with wonderful women who completely understand your compulsion to dress to the nines for no reason :) Your white dress is just perfect. And that yellow necklace adds a lovely pop of summer colour.
xox,
Cee
