It feels like I've been busy. Probably because we're at this stage:
In the time it took me to get one baby secured somewhere away from the fridge, this is what I come back to. (Seriously, like the ONE time I've left something in the fridge uncovered! Besides the fact that I never make jello salads! But see Jenilee? Our love for your jello salad must be genetic.)
Plus I guess there have been birthdays, I've been baking cakes, making strawberry pies, doing hair, having book group, trying to get in some exercise and of course been on the dress hunt. The first store I walked in when I went to South Beach to go shopping made me realize immediately: this is going to be really hard not to spend a lot of money on all the other things I find while trying to find a dress.
But I have found so many cute more casual dresses while looking for a fancy dress that I am realizing I need to buy some dresses. I have issues with this though - I'm tall, so usually if there is a waist it sits too high on me and doesn't fit right. Also, every model wearing a dress is bone thin, so I think that scares me away because they seem less forgiving than a skirt and top. But here are some of my recent dress finds that I want (not for the formal affair, obviously).
This one from JCrew. Never knew they have a whole wedding section. This is listed as a bridesmaid dress, but whatever. It's stinking cute.
This one from Boden. Looks like a great dress for Miami and hot summers.
I also like this one (Boden).
But I especially love this
dress from Boden:
Shabby Apple has some cute ones like these two:
And I saw many, many more that were oh so cute. Hmm, I need another excuse to buy some dresses. Mother's Day is way too far away.
