Dropping Waists

blue drop waist

Yes, I did like romping around in the striped version of this dress so much that I had to get it in a solid hue as well. Drop waists don't usually work well for a shortie with stocky legs like myself, but this dress fit and hit me at the right places. What a nice surprise for me and a fun cas look for summer!

Double Stack

double gondola stripes

I finally scored the original gondola stripe skirt on Ebay for a song a few weeks back so of course, I had to pair it with the blouse in the same stripe. Red, white and blue again - I can't beat this combo.

Have a lovely weekend, ladies!

Currently ... from July

Currently ...

Reading Graceling. Think Game of Thrones with a literal ass-kicking female lead. Yes, I can't seem to get over the YA fantasy genre but so far this has been a fun read.

Nesting. During my last visit to Target, I actually spent more time perusing couch pillows than discount dresses. Maybe there's a bit of hope for me in the home decor arena yet.

Eating Chipotle. Chicken burritos will always be a perpetual face-stuffing favorite.

Watching House Hunters. Though honestly most of the potential home owners kind of peeve me out. They often get stuck on real superficial stuff like the color of a wall or the type of appliances in the kitchen - those are easy, relatively inexpensive fixes! And the people who have champagne tastes on Boone's Farm budgets ... could I possibly be hate-watching?

Confused about my hair. Should I keep growing it out because I've never had real long hair before, or trim it back to a more manageable shoulder-length? Or shoot, be brave and bob it out again?

Drinking LaCroix sparkling flavored water. Where have I been? This stuff is cheap and delicious.

What are you ladies currently into?

Keeping it Crisp

eyelet shift

White shirts aside, this is literally the only all-white piece of clothing I've got. I don't have any white skirts, shorts, any other white dresses. It's not that I don't like white - I actually think it is really sleek and crisp and adore all-white ensembles - it's just that I am an errant stain magnet and can't be relied on to keep white clean. But I couldn't resist this cute dress and so far have miraculously managed to keep all makeup smudges and paint marks from getting on it ... though I wonder how long before my luck runs out!

London Bus in Mint

boden print + stripes

Thanks for all your well wishes on the move, ladies!

Talk about first world problems. I have too much stuff. It was a bear to move it all. We're all in our new house now but it'll take a looooong while for us to finish unpacking and finally settle in. Pup is a bit freaked out over the new smells and new place. The closet is a disaster. I've been avoiding going to the market for a massive restocking trip. There's a weed the size of a small tree in the front yard. My outfits these last few days have consisted of ratty jean shorts and over-sized tees. So please enjoy an outfit from more peaceful pre-moving days.
