Hey, y'all, I'm back!   I can't tell you how crazy INSANE moving has been.  Add in a final project for my summer class where I have to build a chair (yeah, you read that right, actual furniture made of actual wood), and I think it goes without saying that I have been super busy.   I'm sorry to have neglected the blog a bit more than I anticipated, but I'll officially be back tomorrow after I turn in the rest of my last assignment (and maybe I'll even share pictures of my chair here, too).

dress (also in navy) - ASOS
bug belt (or with turtles!) - ASOS
bag - Jason Wu for Target
flats - H&M 
ring - Forever21
sunnies - RayBan   

Anyway, this afternoon I had to make a run to the hardware store to pick up replacement drill bits and yet another pack of wood screws, and darn it if I wanted to feel pretty!  I've been schlumping around all week, unpacking at the new house, cleaning the old house, hunched over in my sweltering garage building a dumb chair, etc etc etc.  So I grabbed a quick shower and my cheeriest dress, and off I went.  Sure, I looked kinda silly walking through Home Depot in a polkadot dress and bow flats, but screw it.  Haha, screw it.  I made a funny only I will giggle at.  ;)

  1. I was JUST looking at that dress online today and how I wanted it! And that belt goes perfectly with it. So cute! I'm glad you'll be back to blogging more often...I've missed your posts!

    OH. And that hair donut thing I got at H&M has CHANGED MY LIFE.

  2. Haha, I LOVE this dress! It's so comfy, and I love that it looks cute when actually it's super easy to just throw on. :D And I will have to check out those hair donut things next time I go. I was kinda waiting to see how yours turned out before getting one! ;D As much as I've worn my hair up this summer, I might have to invest in one. LOL

  3. Okay Ive been looking @ that ASOS dress online! It looks great on you! You always look chic & casual. I suck at dressing casually! LOL

  4. I wouldn't walk through a hardware store in any other way! Haha. No, the best way to get strange looks is to croon to "Bohemian Rhapsody" amidst the lumber! :)

  5. If I think about it later (and find my phone) I'll tweet a picture of it! I went back to buy more and I didn't see them at H&M but I went a Sally Beauty Supply and they have them and different sizes of them!

  6. Oooh that would be awesome! I'll have to see if there's a Sally anywhere around here. Can you believe I've never been to one? I'm such an Ulta girl. LOL :P

  7. Oh you should get it, Georgette! Its SO comfy, I swear, and could totally be dressed up with a blazer and heels. But the above is usually about as dressed up as I get, especially during the summer. I can't wait for Fall so I can be more glamourous like you! :)

  8. Bohemian Rhapsody!?? I'm going back to the hardware store next week, so I will def give it a try and report back! LOL :D
