    Six Months + Six Dresses (4)

    It’s dress day!! And I’m even on time this month. Isn’t that splendid? I know I’ve been neglecting you for the past few days–I’m sorry. We’ve been hard at work transforming our back yard of dirt into a backyard of smooth dirt! With grass seed. (I have pictures, don’t you fret.) (Because I know everyone wants to see photos of dirt.) So, this month I tried to give myself a little challenge: find something with colour. My first three dresses were black or mostly black, so I tried to find something completely different.

    Hi lovelies! I’ve been waiting allllll week to write today’s post! (And then I went out with Dee tonight and left myself no time to write it. ha) Confession: I don’t own very many dresses. If I had an occasion where I needed to dress up or look extra nice, I currently have about two dress options to choose from. Seriously. For some reason I’ve always been afraid to wear dresses. I think that part of it comes from the fact that there are certain things I avoid when wearing dresses… for example, I prefer dresses that have capped or long sleeves, and my ideal length reaches just above my…
