Another Day, Another Dress





Hello my friends. My weekend was a whirlwind of sports, family in town, fun outings with said family and church activities. We hit a football game, the ladies shopped local boutiques at one point, we all went to a birthday party featuring a belly dancer (that's different!) and closed the weekend with Jerad Hall, a comedian/illusionist.  By the way that comedian was great at his craft. I'd definitely recommend seeing him if he comes your way (schedule).

So while that was an incredibly fun weekend, I find myself in a dragging fog. Not to mention, catching whatever is being passed around our parts. Other than laundry and a failed loaf of bread (looks like the bread machine is going out), I've not accomplished too much on the list today.

However, I enjoy the distraction of a blog post, so today I share my latest dress from Marissa Jill's.  I wore the dress, in hot and humid Georgia, all day without discomfort or wrinkle. Now I realize it could be the humidity swearing off wrinkles, but I'll stick with the plausibility of it being the material. The dress is also a great length and easy to style. I'd say that fits all the requirements I've had lately. :) By the way, my hair grew exponentially throughout the day (yeah, even bigger than the photos). And I know that actually was due to the humidity.


What about you? Do you like wearing dresses?

And my shopping trip with my mother-in-law was fruitful with fall bounty and I can't wait to share. I hope your feeling well (I just had another sneezing fit. Aren't you glad you're not here with me??), pumping the probiotics either way and that your week is off to a good start.
