Peach is my favorite color. Peach and brown. And ivory. And maybe some light blushy pink, too. How many favorite colors are too many? I instantly knew I had to have this cardigan and dress when I saw the colors of them on Friday. We went on a little birthday shopping trip to Opry Mills since it just reopened on Thursday (It's been closed down since the May 2010 flood!) It's pretty incredible what they've done to the place... it's beautiful. But as any middle Tennesseean will probably agree, it's so annoying that there's no middle area to walk through the mall at. It's a giant loop that you have to make, and the back loop really doesn't have any good stores. haha I know it's totally lame to complain about that, but it's seriously something that has annoyed me for the entire 12 years (?) that Opry Mills has existed. Such a tangent, I know. Moving on... The outfit! Once you get past the slightly taffeta-y feel/look of this dress, it's dreamy. Long enough to wear sans tights, dressy enough for a wedding event, but casual enough for every day wear. The cardigan is the perfect rust color, too. I know "rust" isn't very spring-like, but this is without a doubt one of my favorite combinations to wear.
Yesterday I spent the majority of the day totally owning my to do list. I wrote everything down on Sunday night and then just hit them head on Monday morning. Designs were done, mock ups were sent, code was written, the yard was mowed (thanks Mike!) and bills were paid. All with enough time to fill up two kiddie pools in the backyard and let Toby and the girls have a field day. I need to take a video next time. Georgia is a mad dog when it comes to water. She can't get enough. Pipkin isn't sold on actually being in the water, but she likes to run around the pools. Then there's Enid above... who really doesn't care for anything except for neck scratches, kitty treats, and bathing in the sun on the front porch. What a tough life she leads! (I totally had to include her in on some pictures because any time we walk out of the house to shoot photos in our yard, Enid is at my feet the entire time. She looks annoyed, but she loves to be the center of attention!)
Today is for more to-do lists (but hopefully a shorter one!), friendly visits, and enjoying the air conditioning. It's finally so hot in Nashville that we had to give in. I love hearing the train with the windows open, and waking up to chirping birds... instead I'll now find solace (and a nice breezy comfort!) in falling asleep to the sound of some quality AC. Tomorrow I'm going to share some exciting wedding news! xo
