Staying the Course


Happy Sunday!  I consider this weekend "the calm before the storm" because from now until July I'm going to be crazy busy over the weekends.  That's not even factoring the idea of moving into our house which hopefully (fingers crossed!), should be in a few weeks.  Short sales take longer than normal ones and there are many things to factor in that are both boring and hard to understand.  So instead of trying to explain that craziness I'll show you my new polka dot dress instead.






Dress- Forever 21
Shoes- GoJane
Belt- Forever 21 (similar)
Necklace- UrbanOG
Bracelet- Betsey Johnson

  I really hate wind.  Especially when you're trying to take outfit photos!  Thankfully it was warm enough to go outside without a cardigan because I couldn't wait to show you this dress.  It's comfortable, versatile, and it was under twenty five bucks.  It also has pockets (who doesn't love that?) and although I have to wear a strapless bra, it's totally worth it.  I don't really say that about too many dresses!
Just wanted to let you know that I added a few more items to my store.  If you use the promo code "sunshine" you can get 10% off your entire order too!  Click HERE to shop away!
