THIS DRESS IS MADE UP OF PENCIL SHAVINGS! I mean, not like literally made of it, but the pattern! The pattern is the most adorable, colorful pencil shavings! I don't even know why I'm so excited about it, but I am. For some reason the pattern didn't register to me when I first found it, but it was such a pleasant surprise upon opening. Someone on Instagram mentioned it was a very "Mrs. Frizzle" dress and I can't argue with that. Don't even get me started on the ruffle detail at the top. Ahh! I decided to go full throttle with the brightest pink cardigan I own and matching lipstick to boot. If only I had found the most perfect shade of pink nail polish a day sooner! (I'll have to share more on that later). I topped it off with a wooden ampersand brooch (it seemed to fit the academic theme) and 'K' typewriter pendant necklace, It was a nice, Spring-appropriate outfit to wear on Monday to Toby's teeball practice. Though it was a bit windy here and there... luckily I was wearing running shorts under my dress haha Old habits die hard I guess.
Yesterday we shipped out all 50+ Kaelah's Closet orders! Be on the lookout if you ordered anything. There are still a few items up for grabs on the first 3 pages if you're interested. I'll go in there this week and delete all of the sold items, too. Today I'll be launching a client blog design, finishing up the last of a client identity + web pack, and then maybe even venturing to the next town over to finally get those pesky cabinet hinges. I think we're just a couple days out from having a decent looking kitchen haha Gotta hide all of our crap before people come over this week! Speaking of this weekend, Toby has his first teeball game on Saturday! Ahh, I am so excited. I'll have to share loads of pictures because he's the most precious thing out there. (I'm biased!) It's so crazy to me that we're parents of a kid on an organized sports team... with regular practices and a lot of games this season! We even have to take snacks to one of the games... what?! Blows my mind daily.
So I've been desperately trying to break the bad habit of biting my nails... In fact, I've been trying for probably a decade now. Nothing works. At most I get 2 weeks out because I get a gel manicure and I refuse to bite $40 off of my fingers, but then something will happen (they chip, or the polish wears off) and then it's back to biting I go. I've made it about a week or so on my right hand, and maybe like 4 days on my left (so sad! I know!) BUT I'm hoping some of y'all have overcome the gross habit and can share your words of wisdom?! What did you do? I don't want long nails by any means, but just you know... not tiny little stubs! haha HALP!
