Something Blue


Okay, so I really like this dress. I am guilty of being a sucker for the color yellow…and all bright colors in general as I am realizing through my outfit posts. One of my co-workers said to me last week, “gosh, is everything you own yellow?!” I thought about it…and yeah I can see how he could think that. (I think I had worn yellow pants the day before- oops). Yellow just makes me happy!


I have already worn this dress to two wedding rehearsal dinners, my brother’s high school graduation, and work.  I originally purchased it from the Loft when they were having one of their infamous 40% off sales (I say infamous because for awhile there those sales were straight killin’ my bank account), thinking it would be a great work dress. I ordered it online so I wasn’t sure how it would fit…unfortunately it was shorter and wider than I had hoped (something I have experienced several times with Loft purchases lately). I had it taken in but of course I couldn’t do much about the length so it’s really just a party dress now. Although I did try wearing it to work once with flats, which I will probably do again because I am running out of occasions to wear it and falls colors and trends are about to set in! That’s a beautiful thing in my book.

In other news, I finally got a haircut. Nothing like a fresh snip to make you feel like a new woman! I was considering getting a collarbone length cut but when it came down to it I couldn’t part with my long locks, and I don’t think my hairdresser could either. But word on the street is short cuts are very trendy for fall…so who knows what autumn may bring. I am really diggin’ this hairdo, lots of texture and soft waves.
