I wore this yesterday to hang out with my friend's mom, which is a thing I'm not even embarrassed to say. I'm sure I've mentioned Kyle, one of my best friends who is in the Air Force traveling the world working tech for Tops and Blue, which entertains the troops. Because Kyle is awesome (don't tell him I said that), he sent a box to his parents' house with some gifts from Japan for me and Adam. Even better than the souvenirs, though, was the chance to visit his parents. His mom invited us over for pie, ice cream, and coffee, and we ended up sitting and talking with her for a couple of hours. Basically, she's great. I became friends with Kyle when we were 13, so I practically grew up with his family and seeing them is always a delight. Plus, Kyle sent me a gorgeous fan that he got from a castle in Okinowa. So yeah, I spent the night hanging out and eating pie with my friend's mom. You know, like the cool kids do.
But let's talk about this dress. Tieka of Selective Potential has been one of my favorite bloggers for years, and her blog was one of the first ones that really inspired me. I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it on her, so when Tieka had it listed in her shop for incredibly cheap, I knew it had to be mine. I'm obviously a sucker for stripes, and that low open back and the slits by the shoulders are perfection. It's such a great summer dress, and I love it with this Mata Traders necklace and these peach Modcloth sandals. I can't wait to remix this for the rest of summer and layer it up when fall comes.
Don't forget to enter The Braided Bandit's giveaway that I'm participating in to enter to win $50 vintage shop credit, a flower crown, and a necklace!
Honestly, for the most, things have been pretty uneventful around these parts lately. It's just been a lot of watching "Bob's Burgers" on Netflix and listening to old episodes of The Nerdist/remembering how in love with Chris Hardwick I am. Pretty much the usual.
