Dress: Anthropologie Woody Nymph Dress
Top: Banana Republic Outlet (really old, but still one of my favs!)
Belt: Anthropologie Skinny Weave Belt

My confessions of the day:

1)  I didn't wear this outfit to work today.  When I got home, I started trying on a few items I haven't worn in a while...this dress being one of them.  In fact, it's only been worn once before.  This outfit came together and I just wore it out for a few errands.

2)  I must also confess that this outfit is a tad outside my comfort zone....I kept wondering if the other people in the bank and Walgreens were thinking "what the heck is she wearing?"  The layering a tee under a dress plus the out-of-the-ordinary color mixing are things I don't usually do.  Plus I was paranoid the jersey dress was clinging to me!  Tell me the truth...what do you think of this outfit?  Should I be brave enough to wear it out again sometime (for more than just 30 minutes?)  Any tips to make it better....?

3)  Okay, I confess that I didn't really wear these shoes.  After I took these pics I switched into my trusty navy with white polka dot flip- flops.  It's just so hot out there that I decided flip flops would be so much more comfortable for doing errands.  I admit, out of all the pretty shoes I have I seem to wear my flip flops out the most......

4)  I didn't wear sunscreen yesterday and burned the bejeebers out of my right arm yesterday.  Being very fair-skinned, I try to avoid sun as much as possible.  I especially try to avoid sitting out in the sun for extended periods of time.  But yesterday we got together at my husband's aunt's house to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday.  They have a tiny house, but a nice deck so depite the beating sun and 90+ temps everyone sat outside!  With only two umbrellas and 15 people!  I thought I was all covered by the shade of an umbrella....but by the end of afternoon my one arm was lobster red.  Yikes!  Anyways, that is part of the reason I got the idea to layer a short sleeved top under this avoid showing off my burn line!

5)  Oh, and I confess that the other reason I decided to layer a tee under this dress is because I am self conscious of my upper arms.  It's a problem I'm working on and hope to see results soon.  Any tips to lose weight and tone upper arms is greatly appreciated :)

6) And my last confession.....I bought this watch as a gift for myself.  I couldn't resist when it went on sale last week.  Plus, mustard yellow is my newest obsession.  And speaking of mustard yellow, I'm still drooling over this and pulling my hair out waiting for it to go on sale!)

Do you have any confessions to share today?


  1. I actually really like the color combo! It's unexpected but really fun. It's almost like the yellow tee is the sunshine peeking through the forest of your dress pattern :)

  2. Oooh, I really like your blue peep-toe flats, even if you only wore them for your photos :) I have to confess I've done the same thing before!! When it comes to shoes, sometimes comfort has to win out over fashion!
