Feelin' Groovy

If I were to say my life is a bit hectic right now that would be a bit of an understatement. Most days I go to work at 9AM and get off work at 12AM. I feel like I'm just spinning around in a void with nothing to keep me grounded. That is why I am absolutely thrilled that it was slow at work today and I was sent home early. Finally some time to catch up on everything (including nap time).

I got this dress at Flashbacks a few weeks ago. One thing that I dislike about their set-up is that they mix all of their new and vintage clothing together, which makes it difficult to search for things. This dress looks vintage, but I don't think it is based on the way the fabric feels and the look of the zipper. There isn't a label, but the seams and details lead me to believe it wasn't handmade either. So I'm not sure where this beauty came from, but I love it all the same.

A girl was commenting on how she liked my dress and she said, "I wish I could wear patterns like that." I thanked her for the compliment, but I really wanted to shake her and tell her she can wear whatever she wants! I don't have any magic powers that allow me to wear patterns and print...I just go for it!

However, I think if there is a trick it's not in the color or print of the dress, it's in how it fits and how you wear it.

This past Thursday Jon and I went to Seal Beach in La Jolla! There were probably 50-75 seals out and one had just given birth to a pup! We had a great time and I can't wait to share the pictures! All in good time.
