PS. Thank you so much to those of you who kept asking me when this post would be live!

As many of you know, Matt has become my Instagram Husband by default. He isn’t professionally trained in photography but he is professionally trained in the phrase “happy wife, happy life“.

I’m going to be real with you and say that I sat down to write this post at 11PM last night. The dinner event with Simon G.

Basically, you need this white sweater dress.
