Wow, a way-back overdressed-for-work outfit from early April - I've worn this dress a few times without getting photos, and in these here ones I seem to be having a moment. I don't even remember what it was about now, but in my face and posture I read defeat and feeling small. Aww! So good that these things pass!
|Labradorite teardrop earrings: Gabii's (Progreso, TX)|
silver necklace with amber pendant: Lando's (Progreso, Mexico), worn here with dentist-frozen face, another "aww!"
Riviera Shirt Dress: Boden
obi belt: Megan Mae Designs, gift from dear friend, worn here with the #1 most fabulous ankle boots the world has ever seen
Though I love the dress's colours and print, I agree with the reviews that this version of it fits large relative to the measurements / size chart, plus I totally need a proper crinoline. Taking the half of my clothes that need it to my alterations lady could be a temporary closet space solution, I am a genius.

I rarely switch out my earrings - find I feel over-decorated - but teardrop shapes are my favourite, and the blue of these Labradorite stones knows my name. But oh man, let's take a break from sad-face there for something uplifting! This is the bouquet I gathered last Sunday from around my place for my amazing Mom on Mother's Day, it matches:
And I have this song on repeat in my head:
Thanks for keeping me company! Hope your moments have long passed as well. Leave me some new earworms in the comments, eh?
