Oh. My. Goodness! If you were following me throughout March & April, you probably heard (lol, ok saw or read) me talk about wishing I could fit into THIS Self Portrait dress. In several posts where I talked about spring dresses I was loving, I mentioned that dress. I was big and pregnant and couldn’t even think about wearing a dress like that though! And I knew I wasn’t going to be buying it after Luke because I’d be trying to lose the weight and wouldn’t want to spend so much money on a dress I couldn’t wear a ton. Anyway, all of that to say that while in Dallas I saw THIS Olive green dress that is almost identical to the Self Portrait one… except at a fraction of the price! Woohoo! I seriously adore the ruffle ‘sleeves’ and how the two sides are totally different… and if you saw yesterday’s blog post, you know I am loving olive green right now. I am wearing a large in this dress for size reference… the medium fit okay but this dress is more of a ‘mini’ dress so the medium was a big shorter. I’d say it does run a little small, so maybe go up one size but if you are tall (I’m 5’7) you’ve been warned. 🙂
Any who! That was a long explanation haha. Today we are going to lunch with our friends from residency because they are going to be moving next week – it is really bittersweet. So happy to be done w/residency but these people became our best friends. 🙁 After that I’m going to take my mom to a few Parade of Homes houses! I did an Insta-live yesterday while touring them and she stayed at the house w/Luke while he napped so today I am going to take her!
