I’m not so sure this worked.
As I was putting it together in my head, I really liked the idea. But seeing the photos made me furrow my brow in slight panic as I rushed out the door with no time to change. Oh well!
Quick post today! My friend Valarie recently asked me for a mailing address, knowing I’m moving soon, because she had something to send me, and no, I didn’t get to know what it was.
What!? Well, of course I obliged, and yesterday I got a bumpy envelope from Iowa with a card noting that she saw this in a vintage store in Cedar Rapids and immediately thought of me.
It’s a little bird pendant! And her instincts were correct because I love it!
But wait – there’s more!
I have been in such a good mood today – it’s Friday! it’s my friend William’s birthday! and I love my look today! And this one is a genuine day-to-night, office-to-out ensemble, too.
You’ve seen this dress before, but that was in a most ridiculous, staying-in-on-Friday-night silly post. Not so today. No, today I feel I am done up right, if I may say so myself!
Sine hollyhock dress (size 8): Anthropologie, ruffled grey cardigan: Express, braided sandals for comfort and bug-bite-avoidance: Mossimo.
Just another belted cotton dress today, but it’s hot & humid & oh, did I mention Friday? I had such a difficult time waking up this morning. Anyone else? I just stood in my bathroom leaning against the counter for like 5 straight minutes at one point, blinking. Fact: I need more sleep. However… plenty of time to sleep when I’m dead. ;)
Hello there! In the days since my last post, I have been mourning LOST, of course – but the blow was cushioned tremendously when I found out I WON the LOST Complete Series set from WeLoveLost.com! Gaaah, I’m so happy! I’ve also been busy and thus crazy-tired – to the point that I went to sleep at 8:00 pm last night! (It was still light out!) And yet, even with 11 hours of sleep, I felt like crap (twitchy eye ALL day) and look tiiired today. Blah!
At least I was bright & cheery-looking:
You’ve seen this dress before, and I didn’t do much with it today (that’s another reason I haven’t posted much this week – wearing a lot of simple dresses that I’ve blogged before), but the accessories are still fun. Also: wow, you can totally see the difference in pics I take before I leave for the day and those I take after I come home from a day at work. (Sssh, pretend it’s awesome!)
