one dress wonder

I loved reading through your comments on yesterday’s post! It looks like a lot of us are in some kind of major life transition, and we’re redefining our style in the process.

This is what I wore yesterday. Today I’m wearing jeans because I overslept — story of my life — and didn’t have time to shave my legs.

at the end of a long, long day.

Today started out well enough. I slept in a little, took an extra 15 minutes to curl my hair, and threw on something cute. I knocked out a few deliveries, stopped at Michael’s for some fall decorations, bought a couple sweaters at Target (still patiently waiting for a cold front) and picked up BBQ for…
