Outfit Post : Saturday, September 11

dress: modcloth, belt: thrifted, flats: kmart

A silly gif of outtakes:

I received a box full of my ModCloth goodies yesterday and much to my dismay, I was completely and totally underwhelmed. The items were all gorgeous though, don't get me wrong. But as a pear-shaped gal, I find online shopping to almost always be an utter disappointment. I have to be able to try on things in store because my small chest and my big ol' behind just doesn't fit things easily. I put them all back in the box and let them sit overnight. Today I put on one of the dresses that I actually really enjoyed and realized that it looked much better than I thought. This was a pleasant surprise.

While the motif may be that of nautical, it is also a nice play on patriotic Americana on such a fateful day. I've tried to stay away from the news for the majority of the day as most of it is just so sad and depressing. I can honor and appreciate the day and all of those affiliated without being bombarded with the traumatic images that I first witnessed in my 8th grade homeroom class.

Mike came home from work and we decided to go out for a mini-date night. We went and indulged in Mexican food and now we're sitting on the couch watching National Geographic. (The Whale That Ate Jaws comes on in 11 minutes!) We're going to DVR it and he's going to go to work with me tonight. (I love that he gets to go to work with me! Makes it so much more enjoyable!) Last night was a bit dead so I was cut after only 4 hours. Hopefully tonight will be a different story.

I'll include a few more photos after the jump. Simply because I'm in love with the color combo.
