Zig Zag Lemonade



Very few photos of this outfit as I was going to be late for work so I was rushing out the door. These were shot inside our loft against the big white brick wall we have to the right. We just moved our floor length mirror to snap a couple quick shots. I didn't like how most of them turned out but I actually really like this outfit so I guess we'll try again at some point! I've become pretty enamored with clashing patterns. I know the subject of "outfit repeating" has been popping up in the blogosphere the past couple of weeks and I'm proud to say I'm a notorious repeater. Sometimes I really just like an outfit a whole lot, so I wear it bunches. I try not to post them on here too much but I'll make an exception for this one in a while! Pip wanted to say hello, too! There were a few photos with Georgia but she's about 55 pounds and a bit heavy for me to hold! I actually wore this outfit to work on Friday night. I wasn't in the mood to wear jeans and I've misplaced my work shirt for the past 3 weeks or so. Dresses it was! I liked wearing a dress so much that I wore one again on Saturday! I just throw on a pair of H&M lace-trimmed bike shorts and voila! I'm pretty positive everyone at work just thinks my Spanx are hanging out haha! Oops!

Can I just say how much I love you guys?! All of the wonderful comments on my Taking a Breather post were incredible! So many of you actually reached out and emailed me, too! I'm truly lucky to have as many lovely people around me like all of you! The "staycation" of sorts was so great that I'm going to plan on doing it regularly! Not having to worry about what I'm posting on the blog that day really really does wonders for ones mood and attitude! I can just schedule up some posts and no one is the wiser! ;) It'll definitely come in handy these next two weeks which will be incredibly busy. And by incredibly busy I mean the whole first week will be spent in the pool while Mike and I house/puppysit for my parents who are going on a trip. Then we have a fun little mini-adventure that I can't wait to share with you all! The hard part will be keeping it a secret. I've already told a few people like Susannah and Jess! (I'm awful at secrets. Seriously. Don't tell me things.)

During the house/puppysitting time, Mike and I will be fastening and shooting and listing all of the new pieces coming to the shoppe! They include fabric bows, bow clips, bow headbands, felt bows, etc! Bows galore! And of course making more fascinators! I've started to notice a trend in which ones sell the quickest and which ones people ask for so feel free to chime in below if you'd like to see more of one color or style, etc! I've got some errands to go run! xo

PS; Thank you all for the sweet words about Georgia, too! Her incredibly expensive (but super effective) eye ointment has worked wonders the past 4 days! The infection appears to be all gone! No drainage and no inflammation! It was so totally worth it. She looks happy again! Now to tackle those ears and hairloss! xo

  22. I'm totally in love with the pattern of that dress and the POP of the yellow sash. Omigosh, just LOVE. I miss having a Ross -- when I moved back to PA, we don't have them here. We have TJ Maxx and Marshall's but I never seem to find as much there as I did at Ross's.

  23. You really are the prettiest thing. I hope you know. What is really fantastic, is that that is not all you are.

    I'm glad things are going so well for you!

  32. I just wanted to say I love all your outfits and the little pieces you make. You always look super cute and have inspired me to wear more dresses! And I'm even trying to start blogging!! slow going atm though too much going on. Anyway I just had a thought about your poor little pup.
    Our dog was having all sorts of problems, ear infections, skin problems the works really.. and we actually found out that she has an allergy to wheat! and so I ended up making all her meals as most dog food has wheat in it... :( but we found a special allergy dog food at the vet that was wheat free and all natural yay!! and she is all better not a problem since. I thought I would mention it, in the off chance it could be the same thing our little fur baby went through. I hope life is a little less stressed now than it was a few days ago.
    Take care. Billie ;)

  39. I absolutely am in LOVE with this dress. I have been scouring the internet in hopes of finding it, with no luck I am standing up in my cousins wedding and she said the dress just has to be black and white with some pop of color. So when I saw this dress I knew this was it. Hopefully I can find it somewhere on the internet. I also have a French bulldog named piper who weight is 33lbs. I totally get not wanting to pick her up. Sorry for the long comment. Love your blog, it's the new place for my dress obsession.

  40. @ClementineKay: they're a wholesale-only company so i don't think you'd be able to find it online! do you have a ROSS nearby? if not, email me at kaelahbee (at) gmail and let me know your size/when you need it by! there are usually a handful at each of my neighborhood ROSS stores (i have 6 in my general area at least) so i'll gladly look!
