I was thisclose to being really daring and embracing spring weather and wearing something else today...but, at the last minute I chickened out. I probably would have been fine because I was really quite comfortable, but it's okay. We got out to enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday by going golfing--a first for me. No, I don't golf, but my husband does and since he doesn't have any golf buddies here he invited me along :-) It was such a beautiful day and course, but I should have brought a jacket--the breeze off the lake was chilly! We finished off the evening with a great dinner at Red Lobster, one of my favorite restaurants.
I'm happy to report that the continuous chatter today during Mass was from a little girl around 14 months old and that was just fine with me and much preferable to last week's episode :-)
Belt: Target? (not 100% sure on this, but pretty sure)
Leggings (major rerun--not sure how I could have done winter without them): Still don't know
Shoes (rerun): Target
(I wasn't able to wear my bracelets this week because they may have snagged my dress.)
This dress was one of only two clothing items I bought the entire time we lived in Germany. I was meeting my long-time friend in London for tea on our trip there (she lives there now) and I had nothing that would have been appropriate to wear and still be able to sight-see in. My sweet American friend and fellow medical English teacher offered to drive me to a nearby town to shop and we found this and I was so happy. (I have a weakness for anything white/ivory and lace/eyelet/woven etc.) Apparently so do a lot of other women in Europe. On the day I wore it alone I saw three other women wearing the same dress. Since I bought it I saw it at least eight other times and I've seen similar dresses that weren't the exact one. I heard from other people that the reason this happens is that H&M is one of the only options in Europe if you want less expensive clothes. (Here we have Banana Republic, GAP, Old Navy, Kohl's, and lots of other discount places.) So everyone ends up wearing the same thing.
Anyway, there's a little lesson on affordable fashion in Europe :-)
Best wishes to Emily for her marriage!
