Bright on Schedule

Modcloth Geode Bright On Schedule dress 008

It's always a good thing when I can actually get out and take pictures away from my home.  I miss the days of just feeling too embarrassed to go out and take them.  Now I need to pick my outfit, do my hair and makeup, and pack everything up while caring for a nine month old baby.  Now that the weather is finally starting to cool down, the thought of taking these little trips isn't so daunting.  Although this particular day was rough.  Just about a foot away to the left my very unhappy child was screaming at me to finish up.  I basically took these in less than five minutes and got the heck out of there!

Dress- Modcloth
Shoes- Steve Madden
Belt- from another dress
Headband- Forever 21

I purchased this dress from Modcloth during their 70% off sale a couple of weeks back.  I also had a 20% coupon so I got this dress for almost nothing!  I'd normally contact their customer service if the brand wasn't listed in the description, but since it was a mega sale and time was of the essence I just went for it.  When the dress came in I was a bit disappointed it was made by Geode.  Their dresses fit me terribly!  They're best suited for a shorter waisted person so the fit ends up looking like an empire dress on me rather than a fit and flare.  Not cute.

Surprisingly, this dress fits perfect.  There are several layers of fabric, including a crinoline, so a petticoat is not needed.  I wore this dress the day Kevin bought his new car.  The salesmen complimented it a few times!  But he was also trying to sell us a car, so I guess I shouldn't be too excited.  Either way, I love this dress and it's the perfect addition to the growing blue dress section in my closet.

  2. This dress looks so good on you, and UGH Geode!! I love their stuff but we have the same issues with their brand. Luckily, this really looks great. I don't know why they can't just list brands in the description all the time!

  5. Love the colours here and OMG - the shoes! So fabulous!

    I'm impressed you look so relaxed in your photos. I struggle looking awkward and uncomfortable in all my photos despite not having a screaming baby. :D

  6. That dress is stunning!! I love the blue on you a lot.

    Even better that you got the dress for almost nothing, but I do think your car salesman story is pretty funny. I've never been complimented on an outfit by one, so I bet it's legit :)

  8. Considering you had a screaming child nearby, you'd never know from these photos! My hat is massively off to you for managing to care for a little one and take fab shots at the same time. What a pro! And this is a lovely dress and I love how your hair matches everything so well. Very beautiful. CC x

  10. This dress looks amazing on you! I love how the colors in this look bring out different shades in your hair. Good score on the dress- I didn't find anything in the last sale, which I guess on one hand is a good thing :)

  11. The days of taking outfit pictures with a baby! Oh, I have often brought Asa outside with me while I take pictures; a week ago, I had him sitting in a laundry basket while I took pictures a few feet away, and he learned to pull himself up onto his knees on the side of the basket, trying to get grass as I was taking pictures, and he just completely tipped the basket and faceplanted in the grass. Thankfully he wasn't hurt much, but uh... he was not happy about getting a face full of grass! It's always an adventure, haha!
    That dress is SO gorgeous! I'm so glad it actually fits you well, it's always frustrating when a dress online ends up not fitting right. The colors are so perfect, and I am so in love with your shoes! They're amazing!

  13. That dress looks like it was made for you. Love the print, and love the colors. I seriously had to blink for a minute, because with all those bright blues and purples you're pretty dazzling.
