Arana

Stop Staring Arana Swing Dress

I feel like I'm in this limbo where everyone in the northern hemisphere is preparing for fall weather... Except me.  I love cozy cardigans, layering, and feeling the crisp air of autumn, yet I won't be participating in any of those things for at least another month.  This Arana dress from Stop Staring is the perfect way to dress for this lingering summer but showcase a beautiful fall floral print.  Finding ways to extend your wardrobe through seasons can be hard, but Stop Staring makes that task so much easier!

Dress- c/o Stop Staring
Shoes- Remix Vintage Shoes
Hat- Jeanne Simmons
Earrings- Pink Collar Life
Belt- From another dress
Lipstick- c/o Vinyl Cosmetics

The Arana swing dress is made from a stretchy but structured cotton and features a gathered crossover bust, sweetheart neckline, three strap detail, full gathered skirt, and a back zippered closure.  While the straps are not adjustable, they definitely accommodate someone with a longer torso like myself.  I went with my usual size small in Stop Staring dresses and it was a very comfortable fit.  The Arana is definitely one of my favorite styles they offer and I hope to see this swing dress in other prints in the near future!

Well, it's official: I finally found Bianca the perfect daycare!  While she will only be going once a week, that's one day I'll get for "adulting" and one day she'll get to spend with kids her age.  Sometimes I feel slightly guilty that she's going to be an only child, so having her interact with other kids on a regular basis kind of feels like a compromise.  Her first day is next week, so here's to hoping she enjoys it as much as I think she will!

  2. You look beautiful and I'm so glad you found BB the perfect daycare! I never did daycare, but I did go to nursery school and pre-K, and I think it was probably helpful. Don't feel guilty about the fact she's an only child <3

  4. This dress is SO beautiful on you! And congrats on finding a good daycare! We just sent in the forms for our little one and I hope she likes it. But if it helps, I was an only child till I was seven and I BEGGED my mom to send me to school or daycare or SOMETHING at around BB's age, so I could meet other kids!
