in search of Ms. Right Dress Right Now

Under the topic of bad timing… I bought this dress shortly after discovering I was pregnant with my second little muffin and rapidly forgot all about it in the midst of morning sickness. When I remembered, it didn't fit and was out of season. I lost some weight after having the muffin, but still not enough to wear the dress in that season. And I forgot about it again. I tried it on this week, and it fits! YAY. It's even a little big in some spots and could benefit from some tailoring.  I just can't seem to be the right combination of weight and season for this dress! Alas, it just makes me want to fill the void with another patterned and vintage inspired dress. I know there's one out there just waiting to be my Ms. Right Dress Right now. Until then I will pretend I meant to keep this in my closet unworn for almost three years. It's the cost of maintaing a closet of clothes with maternity weight fluctuations, and a cupcake/ice cream problem. I'd like to blame the baby but he didn't purchase all that ice cream in utero. How many varied sizes do you keep in a closet, friends?

approaching the too hot to care mark

I really shouldn't complain, we've had far worse summers. But when you are hauling small people around everywhere you go and you're worried about them overheating you just don't focus as much on planning the outfit. For instance, I planned to wear a long necklace and hat and was too irritable to remember them before we left the house. Because I was already sweating glistening. I am almost at the too hot to give a damn mark, which you know means workout clothes, ponytails, and possibly even a baseball hat on a really rough day. I hope I can hang on, and frankly I bet so do all the people I see at library storytime each week. But we exhausted, sweaty, back strained moms stick together so I am sure I won't be judged too harshly. For now I am trying to find every light, loose, comfy item in the closet for errand running days. How are you beating the heat friends? I didn't mention ice cream but that's understood, right?summer_white_outfit_hasbeens_clogs   IMG_7654
