Bright & Quirky Picnic



















This dress is probably the nerdiest item of clothing that I own. For some reason though I am drawn to its quirkiness.

It was given to me by a friend, who thrifted it. It is a great dress to have when it's nearly 80 degrees outside. It's lightweight, short, and has a cute shape. Since there are so many colors on it, it's easy to pick shoes and accessories to wear with it. Also, it looks good both loose and belted.

As you can see in the pictures today Jon and I had a picnic in our backyard! I wanted to go to the lake, but we're still working on decorating our house, so we decided it would be best to not go too far. It was the perfect picnic weather, warm but breezy.

My shoes are new. I bought them for the upcoming cruise I'm going on. They are really comfortable. This is really important for me because I have a back injury so I very rarely wear heels these days. So, these give me a little extra height without being too stressful on my back.

I had to update the outfit for work. I had a projection shift today and it wouldn't feel good if I dropped any heavy equipment on my exposed toes. So, here is my new look for work:
