When I left you last, I was wearing dresses and talking about how I didn’t get very many good family photos from our Sunday outing to the state park. Since then, I have worn four more dresses, and I spent a week in Florida (well six days minus the driving time). The break was wonderful, and I will no doubt be telling you all about it very shortly. But today, it is just going to be about those dresses.
Weeks three and four consist of the dresses I wore Sunday Oct 25th to Saturday November 7th. I thought being a week ahead of myself was gonna make things easier, but it was getting me a little confused as to what was worn when, so I am closing the gap with this post, and I am going to be posting after the week ends rather than being a whole week ahead – which actually was more like a week and a half ahead.
Week three was that wet and dreary one I mentioned last time. It started on Friday the 23rd and pretty much continued on until Thursday the 29th. I wasn’t ready for all that cloud cover and spent a good amount of time at home, not really getting that dressed up at all. By midweek, I started to really miss the sunshine. I didn’t wear a single dress this week, and if I dare say so on the internet, I even spent at least one day in fleece house pants. Let me tell you, those cloudy days really get to me. It is bad when I don’t bother getting dressed in normal clothes at all.
Week four was quite a bit different, the sun was shining in Florida. I had high hopes of getting several dresses worn, but it turned out I only over packed, because two didn’t even get worn, and then two others got worn twice. Ah, well, at least these are keepers, and I have plenty of time left to wear those others. And here they are:
7/111 (Old Navy) The traveling dress. I wore this one twice, once on the way to Florida, and then again one evening out for dinner. This is the picture after having been driving all day – we started at 430 AM – I am tired.
8/111 (The Red Pineapple dress – made by me) I wore this one twice as well. Once for dinner and a ferris wheel ride, and then again the next day for shopping. It is also known as my Florida dress because I have taken it with me on vacation twice.
One more pic because it is just a little bit better than the sunglasses store, mirror selfie.
9/111 (Apt 9) This was what I wore as my ‘fancy dress’ for the trip. You’ve got to love polyester when traveling – no need to iron! Worn for a night out to the theater. If only my hair would have stayed curled just a little bit longer… Florida is humid in November!
10/111 (The Tangled Green dress – made by me) I am obviously not in Florida anymore here. This is the day after we got back – high 50’s in Tennessee with plenty of cloud cover. I even had to get the tights out.
There you have it, the last two weeks of my dresses. I will be back, yet again, this time next week. Hopefully with some better photos, and preferably some that don’t just come from my guy’s iPhone.
