It’s Work Wear Wednesday and I’ve got something a little different this time! I just love versatile dresses that you can dress up or down, to work or out to play and anything in between! I found this dress from Francesca’s (the cutest shop!) and had to get it!! I was actually shopping around for something to wear to the Charity Classic event I went to last Friday and I received a lot of comments about this dress so I figured I should write about it! It comes in TONS OF COLORS (seriously) and my oh my is it such a flirty little dress! This beautiful feminine dress has all the twirls you could ever ask for! This would be super flattering with a denim vest or jacket over it to transition into fall! I’m all for adding a denim touch and this would look great with it! As I mentioned earlier, I wore this to a rather fancy event at night on the 48th floor of the Thanksgiving Tower in downtown Dallas and I received so many compliments! What I really love is that this dress is perfect for Work Wear Wednesday. It’s light and calm and you can lightly accessorize with cute pearls too!! I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a few more colors because this is just a great dress to wear on any occasion from a charity event to work to a bridal shower, it’s perfect. I’m wearing an XS and it fit like a glove! I paired it with my go-to nude heels that I talk about way too much and some amazing jewels I found from Francesca’s too! Get all the deets up above or down below but for now, let me update you on my apartment situation!!
So, our move-in date was technically supposed to be on October 1st but apparently the complex doesn’t allow us to move in on a Saturday, something about there won’t be full staff there??? So we moved up the date to THIS FREAKING FRIDAY and I mean, it’s a good thing and a bad thing. It’s bad because we have to pay a prorated amount for September which is annoying and then we had to call our all third party companies (electricity, internet, etc) and switch the dates. It’s a good thing because I guess now we can at least start the moving in process a day earlier. Unfortunately, our bed that we ordered won’t be arriving until somewhere between October 11-17 so…lol. We’re not entirely sure what we’re going to do. We went mattress shopping yesterday which was TONS of fun and I think we picked out that we will get tomorrow. So, worst case scenario we will likely sleep on a mattress until our bed comes? Not sure. But regardless, we definitely don’t plan on sleeping there until AT LEAST Sunday night so that we can make the place, you know, livable? We still have SO MUCH to get and as usual we procrastinated so TONS of shopping will be happening this weekend! I’m excited to have partnered up with two special brands to show you some cool home decor items so stay tuned for that in October! Oh and another thing, I finally got around to doing our save the date cards so that is in the process of being printed so YAYS all around for productivity!
To tell y’all the truth and be real here, I’m having mixed emotions about the move. I just love my parents and my dog so much and I know I’m really only going to be 10 minutes away from home (lol I wanted to stay close) it bums me out that my dog won’t be able to sleep on my bed anymore. He always comes upstairs and snuggles up right in the middle of my bed and ugh, I just wish there was a way I could tell him that I won’t be far away and I’ll be visiting basically every other day. And yes, you best believe I’ll be home all the time. But still. And I know y’all are probably wondering why I’m not taking my little snuff ball with me and it’s because he is sooooo freaking attached to my dad. He follows him around everywhere and every time I say “Papa’s HOME” he freaks the heck out. I couldn’t take him away from my parents so I’ll just have to visit all the time instead. I don’t know, I feel like it’s a little harder for girls to move out in my opinion, especially in my culture. I know my fiancé is ready to go and super excited but I can’t help but feel a mix of excitement and sadness. I guess that’s life and at some point I’ve got to move out but I guess I wasn’t expecting it to hit this hard and so soon. 😞 I don’t know but what I know for sure is that I will be at my house every other day, eating dinner here at least twice a week and possibly keeping Snuffy at the apartment once a week?! I’ll figure something out but for now, I’m sitting in my bed with my toddler (I call Snuffy toddler sometimes) and I’m loving every bit of it. 💓
Anyway, I’m officially pooped and going to bed! Chat soon! 💋
