Happy Friday, folks! I can't think of a better day to be sporting a dress decorated with cocktails, ya know? (Okay, so maybe these photos are from Wednesday, but hey... it's cool) I decided to put a little pep in my step on Hump Day and flaunt a petticoat while running errands around town. I can't help but feel a little silly when I wear it, but I think I'm finally getting the hang of it! Crawling up in our truck is kind of funny though - I have a huge poofy forcefield around me! (If you're on the hunt for a decent - and inexpensive - petticoat, I totally recommend this one that I have) I've had my eyes on this Bettie Page dress for a while so I was stoked to finally claim it for myself. I actually expected it to be a little more mustard colored in person, but I'm not sure why since the customer photos actually show it perfectly (Seriously though - how cute are those girls?!). I love the buttery yellow hue though so no complaints here! The petticoat was honestly a necessity because the dress is a bit long for me. Once it's fluffed up I feel like it's the perfect length... but boy oh boy - the skirt on this baby is huge!
This cardigan is a recent score from a Stitch Fix package. I loved the color but the cuffs were solid white so I decided to roll them under. The emerald necklace is another Stitch Fix goodie and it was a very last minute addition because Mike thought it'd look nice. Haha Sometimes I just leave it all up to him. I wasn't sure if the black bag and shoes would be too heavy for the dress or not, but I went with them anyway since the outlines of all the cocktails were black. Plus I just really love this Ivanka Trump bag! It's just so structured and classy!
Yesterday Mike and I joined Toby's Pre-K class at the local pizza shop for a "Make Your Own Pizza" field trip. Toby showed up wearing his new tie-dye t-shirt and clinging onto his "best friend" Wyatt. We get to see how he interacts with kids in public, but before yesterday we were never able to see him in his element around kids he spends every day with. It was so funny to see him all buddy buddy with two of the little boys. His friend Hunter sat with us in our booth and they had a grand ol' time. One little boy even asked if he could come over to our house and play with Toby after school! We've officially entered the "school-age friendship" realm of parenting! Kind of terrifying but also so sweet. We noticed Toby was running a bit warm even though he wasn't acting sick, so we whisked him away after the field trip, picked up some medicine, and kept him in bed for the rest of the day. He's still running a bit of a fever and we're keeping him home from school just to be safe. Mike and I are starting to feel an icky sore throat and cough coming on ourselves, so it looks like it's going to be a sick weekend in the Flynn household.
Today I'm planning on finishing up some signs, working on lingering design commissions and taking it easy. Hopefully whatever we're coming down with is fast paced and will be out of our house before long. At least we have season 2 of New Girl to occupy our time! (Speaking of TV - Any good shows y'all can recommend on Hulu+ or Netflix?! We're on the hunt for some new shows to play in the background while we work during the day!)
Hope the sun in shining wherever you are, friends! Have a happy weekend! xo
