First things first, does my dress remind you of a glow-in-the-dark mini golf course on some tropical island? Be honest. Just me? I feel like I'd glow under a blacklight... but I love it so... I picked up this dress several weeks ago at Ross on a whim. At retail it was $90 but I snagged it for $22 (!!!). I bought it and worried that it might be too small, but was pleasantly surprised that it fit! (The brand is Spense, for those interested! This particular dress runs really large. Like 1-2 sizes large, just FYI!) I had no clue what I was going to pair it with and honestly, this entire outfit is playing it safe. I think it'd be fun to pair with some platform shoes, but yesterday was not the day. Between errands and Toby's baseball game, I would've broken an ankle haha Maybe I'll try styling it completely different next time around.
Lately I've been so aggravated with my hair, I just want to shave it off. Would you believe that I totally attempted to curl it prior to these photos?! My hair normally holds curl insanely well, but lately it's been just a mess. No matter what mask or treatment I use on it, it's limp and gross and annoying. I feel like part of it stems from the fact my hair is in a messy topknot 99% of the time, but I just hate having hair all up in my face when I'm not attempting to look "nice" (aka appropriate for socializing). Hmph. I'm attempting a new deep conditioner so if it's not a total tube of crap I'll share more about it :)
Oh, and if you're ever feeling bad about yourself, just mosey on over here and check out this following photo. HA. Mike always manages to capture the most unflattering outtakes... he told me I make this face a majority of the time and that's honestly probably true. Now you all know the real me!
You totally can't see my necklace very well, but it's this beautiful silver, engraved necklace with milestone pendants. RedEnvelope sent it my way earlier this week as an early Mother's Day gift (so kind!) and I love it. There are 3 pendants: One says Mike (with an emerald for May), one says Flynn (pink tourmaline for October/our wedding), and the last says Toby (blue topaz for December). I love it. It's so sweet and beautiful.
I was really hoping we could break out the RV this weekend and go camping for Mike's birthday (Sunday!) but sadly it's looking like rain for the next several days. Home renovations and projects are put on hold. Toby can't play outside with the neighborhood kids. And the dogs get sassy and refuse to go out... ahh! Here's to hoping it holds off or only rains for a short while each day. Otherwise I fear we'll all get cabin fever since we've grown so used to endless amounts of sunlight and fresh air daily!
