This dress is my favorite dress ever. I know I've said it about many dresses before, but this dress is really it. (You know, until the next one.) Last year I bought this dress is a beautiful blue color. I found it at Ross for a whopping $15. I scooped it up, wore it too much, and amazingly enough never managed to photograph it for the blog. I remember seeing a woman holding this yellow version when I was getting ready to check out. The yellow is the softest buttery color. So beautiful! She was buying it and I was heartbroken because not only was it my size, but it was the only one in the entire store. Turns out it was basically the only one in the mid-state. I went on a wild goose chase for weeks trying to find that thing. Finally I just gave up. I know, I make shopping for a dress sound like a treasure hunt. Anyway, early this Spring I was perusing the racks of Ross and I spotted it down the aisle. I'm pretty sure I tripped over myself a few times trying to get to it (Exaggeration yet again). Swoop! It was mine! Again, my size, and the only one in the store. (I looked for a backup) It really is the perfect length, silhouette, and pattern. If I could find it in even more colors, I'd buy them. And then I'd wear one every day and that'd be all I'd wear. Then my "style" blog would be rendered even more mundane and unwarranted. Whatever, I love it and that's my big long paragraph about how I finally got my hands on the most perfect dress.
I dusted off my Blowfish Garrens for some wear and tear, too. I've worn heels all of 2 times since Toby came to live with us so it was nice to have an excuse to put them on. Maybe I just have an irrational fear of wearing heels while trying to run after a small child. I know plenty of ladies do it daily, but that's just so intimidating to me. I ended up wearing the blue version on Sunday's Easter festivities with my family (this one was Saturday at Mike's). I didn't snap any pictures of it so I'll have to do that soon. Not that it's going to look that much different... haha
Today I'll be finishing up a couple designs for some clients and working on a website for Mike's stepmom, doing something with this mop I call my hair, hopefully organizing my office, and getting Honeybean inventory ready to go. It'll be a miracle if all of those get done, but I'll just start at the beginning and work my way through! Tomorrow I'll be sharing my latest Stitch Fix haul! xo
