On Sunday, I Showered

Dress: Old Navy, Sweater: Old Navy, Shoes: Soda, Flower: Fossil Outlet, Watch: Fossil Outlet, Necklace: Lisa Leonard Designs

On Sunday I showered.  AND did my hair. AND then put on a dress for Church. It was quite a a feat for this packing Momma.  The last ten days have been sweats and baseball cap kinda days, and I imagine the next few weeks will be the same. So let’s soak in this pretty and simple summer dress together shall we, Ahhhhhh.  Because it’s all grease and grime from here on out. 

Tomorrow is day one of moving day.
Bitter sweet.

I will be linking this outfit up to WIW on The Pleated Poppy and Real Momma, Real Style on MGR.

    how did you get the dress to not drag the ground? I want so badly to wear maxi dresses, but I'm 5 ft tall and I don't think they'd work for me! You look adorable though!

    I once read somewhere that when you feel like you need something most- give it to someone else and karma may return it to you.

    Did I ever tell you clearly how when you did my spot for Ava Marie Creates how I appreciated your honesty, time and kindness? If not, thanks. And if I did, it's nice to hear twice. πŸ˜€

    I'm on hiatis from Ava Marie….not sure which direction i'm going in with it.

    I'm there with you…we are moving across the country with our 6 month old in two weeks…I'm not only trying to organize for the movers, but we are downsizing our 'stuff' too. Add to that my growing sadness about leaving our friends, house, and cute neighborhood. You're positive moving post inspired me though…I love how excited you are about the new place…I'm trying to channel that positivity. Good luck!!

    loving the wedges!!
    i've bought 2 maxi's this year and have yet to wear either out of the house for fear they make me look preggers and/or fat. i'm only 5'3.
    why do they make everything so dang long??!

    I love the colours in your hair Ashley. Your hair always looks great. I have read your hair tutorial but don't have long enough hair to do that to mine :(.
    Love this dress, it's really cute. It definitely makes you look taller.
    BTW…Good luck with the move.

    Somedays are just FINALLY shower days. Life with kids can get so in the way, and I cannot even imagine how moving would throw it for a loop. You look like all sorts of hotness. I love the outfit. I am sure that you will be thankful for all of the non-shower days once you are settled in.

    I like the look of the white tee under the dress. I am considering giving away all of my not-so-conservative tanks and dresses, and have thought of a tee as a solution, but have yet to try it. What type/brand top are you wearing? The fit seems perfect.
