Okay so, this outfit post should basically just be titled "How many ways can KB tilt her body and hold out the skirt of her dress in one outfit post?" The answer? Five. Or maybe six... if you count the cropped photo. Want to know something even more ridiculous? This outfit was originally titled "Watercolor Whispers"... I know! Did you spit out your morning coffee? Ugh, so embarrassing. My brain has been so fried lately and that's all I could muster. When I told Mike (I obviously knew it was bad), he said "Omg Kaelah... no. You can't." Then he followed it up with "Let me finish cooking then I'll come look at it and help you pick something not as stupid." His suggestions: Purple Rain (really), Floral Mist, Purple Flowers, Royal Garden, and Watercolor Garden. Obviously equally awful, but hey, he tried! We just chose the one that felt the least redonk and ran with it. That's true love right there... I think. Blogging is weird.
So hey! About this outfit! I snagged this dress at (Can you guess?!)... dun dun dun... JCPenney! HA! They didn't have it in my size at the first JCP we went to a few weeks back, but I found my size on clearance (!!!) at the second one. What a lucky score! It was just $20 and so so worth it! It's a Liz Clairborne dress and I love it. The fabric, the fit, and the pattern. I tossed it on to run errands in Columbia yesterday. Nothing fancy (look at that hair! Yow!) but something appropriate enough to buy 5 gallons of deck paint in haha! Check out our pressure-washed, sad excuse of a deck in the background haha. Mike actually started painting the deck floor last night and it looks so much better already! Fresh barn red for the win!
Yesterday was my first full day back in the office in over 2 weeks. I tended to emails, worked on design work, and tried to prepare the blog for this week's posts. I also painted wooden signs until my hand felt like it was going to fall plumb off! I have a whole other batch to paint today but I love looking at them all once they're done! I have another two dozen coming my way (sizes M through XXL) so if you wanna snag one for you or as a gift, let me know! I also offer to add a permanent note to the back of the sign (in case you want a sweet message there) and to gift wrap 'em! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve yours :)
I hope today includes some pool time! It's the perfect weather for it! xo
