Hooked





Oh this dress, how I have a love/hate relationship with it! It wrinkles like no ones business and it has about a half-a-million hooks to close it up the front that are super time consuming!

I bought it last summer but never wore it because I was 15lbs heavier and was not as confident with my body. Now it's a little loose around the middle when I finally feel good about myself! And it's one of those colors that makes me look mega pale.

But I love the flowy drape, the corset style back, the cute tab sleeves, and I kinda like the hooks.

It was the perfect dress to year yesterday to feel like a lady again. I've been slacking on the whole getting-dressed thing and have been wearing the same old jeans and tees on my days off. That's what working the night shift does to me! And that's about it for this post, I try to at least show my face once a month ;) Next week, my hubby and sister and I are driving to Michigan to visit our parents and friends and families. I can not wait!

June Hat



 

It's been almost 6 weeks since my last post here on the bliggity-blog. The reason? I've been a nudist.

Ha, just kidding! I have no idea where the time went! I think it has something to do with working the 7pm-7am shift at the hospital.  When I wake up at 4 in the afternoon after working a 12hr shift, the last thing I wanna do is my hair and makeup! SOooo That is why I have embraced the hat and sunnie look today. Perk of this look? I got carded buying wine. Yup. I'll repeat this look.

See ya next month, most likely :P



Vest: F21
Tank: Maurice's

Same Hay, Different Day










Ever have one of those days when you look in the mirror and feel so... smokin hott? That was me on this day. I had worked out all week, my tummy was flat and I felt fierce! So I put on my slinkiest dress and some heels so all the world would know how good I felt about myself. I still have a ways to go before I reach my fitness goal, but I'm closer and closer each day.

Prairie Rock





 


I loved this dress from the moment I tried it on at the thrift store. It makes my waist look so good! The only thing I wasn't sure of was the style. (It had a neck bow that I promptly removed.)

I thought I'd toughen it up a bit with some fierce eyeliner and my moto-style boots. I wore this to go thrift shopping with my husband and found me another pair of rugged boots. I can't wait to show you!
