Dress: Old Navy Women's Plus (I looked and they don't have this in the regular Old Navy line but they do have these great chevron skirts!)
Necklace: Sunshine and Carousels (bought at Renegade Austin)
Yes I realize my legs could use some sun. They've pretty much always been translucent.
My nails are a fun summery pink ombre.
When I got this dress (and its partner which I'll share some other time) in the mail I knew it was going to be part of my summer uniform. Pool party = chevron dress, cook out = chevron dress, laying around the house = chevron dress minus the awful strapless bra I have to wear with it :). I'm in love.
Erin tweeted a photo of the necklace before Renegade to show a sneak peek of what she would be selling. I was smitten with it at first sight and knew if she still had it in her booth when I went I would be buying it. It's a new favorite of mine and I keep coming up with outfits it will look cute with. Her new jewelry pieces have artistic hand-painted elements and I love them. Check out her etsy shop! There's a 20% off sale going on right now.
How was everyone's weekend? This was one of our busiest weekends in a long time. I've said before that I like chill weekends because of hectic work weeks. I don't like to have to live by a schedule on my days off and will usually decline most invitations to do things on weekends if I feel them starting to get that way. But our June weekends are full of stuff we just can't say no to. This weekend there were two visits to the theater (X-Men First Class and Kung Fu Panda 2), a farewell party, two birthday parties, one bloggy deadline for me to work on and a dinner with friends. Too much for me, even if I had fun. I'm dragging now and am late posting photos of granny squares. They're all still sitting in my camera. I also got in a little embroidery. I'm as surprised as you. Now if I can just get some sewing done. I'd live up to my name again ;)
