Grace Kelly- A Mother/Daughter Date
We had a lovely weekend that included dinner with new friends for Bryce and I and a family dinner with old friends. It also included a strings concert for Grace where she, along with her class, played so well that I was astonished!
Perhaps the highlight though was taking Grace on a Mother/Daughter date to see a Grace Kelly exhibit. It was such a wonderful thing to spend the day doing together! I was happy to take Grace to see an example of a "star" who always looked classic, classy and beautiful without seeming to try too hard (I'm sure it takes effort to be that effortless!). In a day where more skin is shown, hemlines are high and necklines are low it's important to me for Grace to see that that is not the only way to present yourself to the world.
And oh, the clothes! They were so, so beautiful and lovely! I wish I could have taken pictures but the exhibit did not allow photography. Suffice it to say, it reaffirmed my desire to continue to work toward a classic wardrobe.
P.S. They had her Kelly bag and not only was it beautiful but also pretty dinged up from so much use!
