WhatIWore: A new closet space calls for a new look at old favorites. I’ve been slowly retiring and reselling pieces that I don’t think I’ll ever wear again, but this is the kind of dress I’ll probably keep forever. I also feel more confident wearing older (non linked) pieces on the blog, without searching through the depths of the internet for similar options.
When: June 24, 2017
What: Hat: Self Made Shades: Karen Walker ‘Super Duper’ Baby Wrap: Solly Dress: MNG for Mango from JCP (gift from partnership) Sandals: Clarks (gift)
Where: Farmer’s Market with my fam
I really love this dress - it’s got vintage vibes but it’s a) long enough and b) easy to wash. The lining is built in and it’s nursing friendly. And it makes me feel like a goddess whenever I wear it! I’ve pulled up four older photos in four different ways I’ve styled it from the past (posts are here, here, here & here). Looking back I remember feeling so great each and every way I wore it. Like when you look in the mirror and think to yourself “this is the best outfit I’ve ever worn!!”
The headline shocked the close-knit world of the surface Navy: Seven sailors aboard the destroyer USS Fitzgerald were killed, and other crew members injured, when the warship collided with a cargo vessel off Japan.
As the Navy family grieves, both it and the wider world are asking the same question: How did this happen?
The short answer is that no one knows — yet. Official inquiries into what led up to the encounter could take months or more. The Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard both likely will eventually issue reports that describe what happened and could make recommendations for preventing another such accident.
“I will not speculate on how long these investigations will last,” said Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, commander of the Navy’s 7th Fleet. The Fitzgerald and the other ships of Destroyer Squadron 15, based outside Tokyo, fall under his authority.
There are clues, however, that explain how something like the Fitzgerald’s collision could happen, including photographs of the ships involved, navigation data about the container ship ACX Crystal and the experience the Navy has had with past mishaps.
