Wind it Down

chevron4

 I can't help but post all my spring outfits.  While I wear color pretty much every season, spring is really the time to show it off.  I've had this dress for quite some time but waited until now to showcase it on the blog.  It's easily one of my favorites!  Who doesn't love chevron print and a deep V detail in the back?  It's also really light so it's a great dress for summer too.  Which, by the way, is going to come early this year.  It's already in the 80's here!

I'm not going to lie, this week has been a little rough.  Work has been kinda crazy lately and I feel like I haven't had enough "me time".  The time between when I get home from work and when Kevin gets home is my decompression time.  I like to go through emails, read other blogs (my fav), work out, watch tv, play with my dogs, and cook.  No offense to my husband, but it's the most relaxing part of my day!  So when I don't get enough of it I tend to be on the cranky side.  Hopefully today and tomorrow will be better so I can really enjoy my weekend!  What do you like to do to wind down?

  4. Congrats on the decision to become sponsored; you have such a fantastic blog. Also, totally hearing you on needing "me" time. Hope the rest of the week is less stressful.

  6. This dress is AMAAZZZING, I love the print and the vee in the back. Anything with a low back and I'm sold. Love all the bright colours on you too :D
    I am the same way, I definitely need "me" time before I can interact with anyone else or I'm grumpy. Bubble baths are my favourite way to relax

  7. Love this dress! I love chevrons. It's funny... I don't really have "me" time or wind down time. I come home and start bugging my husband to talk to me, hang out with me, etc. I don't ever think about me time much til other people mention it. Maybe it's a part of being an only child and having too much me time when I was little...haha. But when my husband isn't around I'll just hang out by myself no problem, I never think to call anyone!

  19. While I'd give that dress a double-take anytime of the day, those shoes had me staring. I've been wanting a pair that would be loud and bold and fun, but haven't found my match yet. Hopefully, they'll be as pretty as yours!

  27. I know how you feel about that time alone. It's hard to just sit and read blogs and relax when someone else is around.
    Also, this dress is fantastic! Such pretty colors! It's already been up in the 80s here too so I feel your pain. Why can't we just have regular spring weather? It skips from winter to summer with no in between!

  28. I love the back of the dress! The back is really the best skin to show!
