Black Disco Dress | Turquoise Jewelry

I’ve always called this dress my “disco dress”. Why? Because it reminds me of a dress that some disco queen would wear out dancing back in the 70s. It’s swishy. It moves well. It has a drapey neck and crazy batish cape-like sleeves. I like it. I can’t dance though, despite taking years of dance as a child. I’m lucky I can walk. I am a terrible klutz. Feet. Ack!

Dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun…  Dun dun dun dun dun dun… Do the hustle…

Red & Black Draped Blouse | Boyfriend Jeans

My boyfriend jeans really get a lot of wear. A LOT. They are just SO dang comfy that I can’t stop myself from wearing them. I’m actually on the look out for a new pair with a darker wash to add to the mix, but these will suffice until I can find those. You know how jean hunting goes… It could take eons. Or is that just me?

I ordered several pairs of fancy “premium” denim that Nordstrom included in its Anniversary Sale and returned all of them. I figured that if I am spending $119 (on sale!) for a pair of jeans, my butt better look FABULOUS. It did not. I did, however, keep this draped blouse. I’ve also been looking for some interesting printed tops and this one fit the bill. I love how is drapes and it will look cute layered under a blazer or sweater during fall as well.

Holy crap… Can you believe it is almost August?

Maroon Linen Maxi Dress

I bought this dress to go to my husband’s company’s summer party. Their functions are always over the top, with great food (hello dessert bar!) an open bar, and music. Plus, I get to wear pretty dresses when we go. Unfortunately, the company had to reschedule their summer event and now it is occurring when we will be out of town. Dang it.

This dress is sort of a big deal. You see…  It requires special undergarments. I do not like having to buy special undergarments for clothing. However, I loved this dress so much that I bought a strapless brassiere specifically to wear with it. THAT IS A SERIOUS COMMITMENT. Do you know how hard it is to find a double D strapless bra that stays up? I tried on every bra in the land. Silver lining? I now have a great strapless bra and my dress options are wide open!

So, where did I wear this? Oh, you know…  To the library to pick out a book to read while at jury duty. Fancy.

Rugby Striped Dress

I have a serious problem with stripes. Meaning, I love them and already have a bunch of striped items, yet I continue to add more and more to my continuous wish list. This dress is one of my summer favorites. Maybe it’s because the shift styling is forgiving if you have eaten one too many s’mores or Dairy Queen chocolate dipped ice cream cones. Maybe it’s because it is comfy. Maybe it’s because it’s effortless. Maybe it’s all of the above.

Yeah… It’s all of the above.

Navy Gauze Maxi Skirt | White Pop-Over

Are you guys having a summer polar vortex in your neck of the woods? Michigan sure is. I don’t mind a few days of cool weather, as long as it moves along and summer comes back. It sure does make for nice sleeping weather, so I can’t complain too much. The only thing that IS hard is dressing for the office when the temps dip quickly. It’s like working in a meat locker. I had to wear a fleece all day today because I was so cold.

When it IS warm I’ve taken to living in maxi dresses or skirts. I love, the feel of this gauze one. It swishes to and fro, hither and yon and makes me feel like such a girl. A twirly girl even. Best part? Massive sale.

Sorry for the light posting. In addition to a crazy work-life I’ve had some personal stuff bringing me down. I’m trying to dig out of the darkness, but sometimes it is hard to not let the hole swallow you up like quicksand. I can feel it turning around and I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s just going to take me a while to get through the tunnel with all the zombies and such. Please bear with me.

Thank you so much for stopping by. It really does me a lot to me. You guys are awesome.
